Just opened a fresh bag of Candy Corn flavored M&Ms. I had totally forgotten about these things until taking a stroll down the Holiday isle at the grocery store a few days ago. They taste odd at first, but then I suddenly find myself reaching for more! Oh, and my girlfriend picked up a bag of Pecan M&Ms and they were nasty! Very smelly, too.
Hot! We’ve had a week of extremely toasty weather. Temperatures have been in the 90s with some serious humidity as well. This is far from normal for this time of year, but you won’t catch me complaining. The longer it stays hot, the shorter the winter!
It’s about time that I got some classic automotive goodness on here after what has been a long summer of few submissions from you guys. Thanks to a reader with an eye for some well-aged hot sheet metal, I have this gorgeous 1929 Chrysler to share with all of you today! Some things are just cool and this one definitely qualifies. Even better, check out the story below for a little history on the car. Enjoy!
Hey Keep. I saw this red car zip across me like a red bolt of lightning at an intersection in Las Cruces New Mexico and I started following it. Finally caught up to it, which he was doing about 80 miles an hour on I-25 and then turned off into the suburbs in Las Cruces New Mexico. Once he got home, asked the owner if I could take some pictures and he was pretty cool about it. The owner told me he found the car 10 years ago on a cargo ship off the coast of Tierra del Fuego when was on vacation. Apparently the owner of the car had passed away during Transit and he had no family so the car was eventually put up for auction 20 years later. He bought the car at the auction and had taken to the southern tip of Argentina. He then put it on a trailer and drove it all the way into the United States where he spent a couple of years restoring it and painted it and now drives it around like a regular car. That’s the story he told me. I have no idea if it’s true or not but that’s all I know about the car. -Sunscorpion
