Here I am. Since we're talking English here, it has to be changed to something nobody in their right mind could figure out. Bodges, no; Bodgi, uh-uh; Bodgies,nope. See, that's where our other language comes in. SCREWED UP. OK I tamed it a little but Marinus or Jo may be looking in :lolb:

Now Marv, let's not forget Pinto, Vega, Dart, Fiero,

And the Trabant, the Pontiac Aztec, and, of course, the Robin Reliant.  But it was still  the Yugo that gave communism a bad name.

Tel, I just checked your age( I'm used to ID'ing folks) so, were you a bodgie or an outback redneck wild ass jackaroo. You know how you quadruple the price of a Yugo? Fill it up with gas( adjusted for inflation)

Whiskey.

A funny:For beer sales  Tennessee State Law mandates that I must ID and I quote " Anyone 99 years of age or younger" . And y'all think our language is screwed up

For all its faults, the Yugo had a rear window defroster.  It was there to keep your hands warm while you pushed it.

They have a legal drinking age in Tennessee?  Damn, you learn something astounding everyday.

Now wouldn't it just tickle you to be carded for a long neck PBR at your age?

I hope I never get thirsty enough to consider drinking PBR.  But getting carded in Tenny, yeah, I'd want a picture of that for my scrapbook.

I usually post more noise than signal but I'm learning lots from you guys. The thing I love about the model engineering community in general is the friendliness and encouragement shown to newcomers. Whether on forums or at exhibitions or at steam rallies almost everyone I've spoken to in the last eighteen months has been friendly and down to earth with very often a real interest in the simplest of beginner's projects.

I hope that you have found MEM among those friendly folks Gary. Personally i find most if not all the beginner projects as fun to watch as the more complex ones.

And guys, i had a Vega in college and it was a good little car as long as you didn't try to race it. When i later traded it for a VW Rabbit diesel, the dealer gave a decent trade value, but noted that if i sent any friends in, try to pick ones that didn't have a Vega...i guess one on the used car lot at a time was enough :lolb:

I had a 71 wagon in high school. It had a 327 corvette engine in it so racing was not a problem. I had a friend down the block that made a small fortune putting head gaskets on the 4 bangers.

I had a Vega back in 75.
Sold it to my sister who gave me much grief about that until she managed to get rid of it.
Weird color. Blue during the day. Purple under street lights.

But...it was in that car, driving home from Tablerock Lake with T, during our short courtship, that I realized how comfortable I was being with her and wondering if she was the one. (Everyone say 'aw'.)

I found out much later that she already knew.

I also found out much later how stupid she thought I was for having that car.

I'm thinking it was a good thing to dump it on my sister.  :lolb:

And I continually find out things T thinks I'm stupid about.

Ah well. Better to by happy stupid than just stupid.

All I can tell her is...I made at least one right decision.  ;D

My high school car was a '50 Merc 2 door, flat head V8, dark green.  I have lots of great memories that I can't tell you about.

I wish I had pictures. 

I wish I had the car!
