Rusty Grill

She's just a mere shell of her former self. And I mean shell. All that's left, as she sits along side Rt. 202, is her frame, no interior, no motor. As the double negative would read, no nothing! In this day and age of restoration projects, someone, with a lot more skill in the area then I, will lug this piece of junk home and almost magically turn it into a gem. In the reality TV world, there's a show that is all about doing just this. Take a scrapper off the junk pile, turn it into a show stopper, take to a car auction and make some dough. I get a kick out of reality shows these days. Reality? What a misnomer! Anything but. They are ALL as far away from the real living I'm doing as you can get, but they sell. Bottomline, they must make money. I help a couple make just that, I guess. If I told you I watch the Housewives of NYC, would you believe me? I have utter disdain for them all. However, like a good car wreck, I can't take my eyes away.
"Is anybody hurt?"
"Yes, they all are!"

  1. Yeah, I like Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch.

    If there's no game on, Birdman searches for the Housewives.

    What's wrong with this picture?

  4. I think this poor old Chevy is beyond repair. But maybe not. Have you ever noticed how GM cars often lose one of their lights? It's true. Check it out on the highway. If a car has one light that's not working, it's almost always gonna be made by GM. I think that's GM's punishment for working with the Nazis during WWII.

  7. That would be Extreme Makeover-Vehicle Edition! I am a bit sad when I see old cars in bad shape; think of the tales they'd tell.

    I don't watch reality shows. Life is my reality show.

  8. I watch Survivor and International House Hunters. And Blue Jay games - that's a sad reality show for sure although better than the Sox right now. Who would have thought!?!

  9. Hahaha! When do you get time to watch Reality TV with all the great photo wandering that you do?? Fatal attraction, no? Anyway, if everyone in our country (said the old curmudgeonette) had been recycling old cars all along, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in! The car looks like it knows something with that sly smile...About Reality TV: I wish more people knew the inside scoop about how controlled they are...Kinda like The Hunger Games, no?

  12. What a face! I expect to see a cigar stinking out of that grinning grill.

    I don't watch TV. I edit photographs.

  15. OMG Birdman I can't believe you said that ..I watch H of NYC for exactly the same reasons, I think surely it's just not possible for adult people to have so little control of their actions, absolutely fascinating!
