Only in California.   Grin 




Saw quite a few in CA, but I think there were more in that little no man's land strip of TX.


I did get to stop at the free 72 oz steakhouse-if you eat it all - place!   Second worst steakhouse we have ever been to.   Colton's in AR was the worst.

But I did get a hat with a very wide brim for farm work at a good price!

There's a bunch between Tulsa and Dodge City, KS as the private airplane flys.

I don't think I ever could have eaten a 72 oz steak, even when I was a bunch younger.  And that's not to even mention the potatoes.

A good hat can be a good deal.  I still use sun-block in the summer.

Can a car go without a starter?

Park on a hill with manual tranny in an old car and you are golden.  You could even have a battery that needed to be charged.

Sorry, just had to say it.

Real men (and women) don't need starters, clutches, or electric windows!

In that case the buddy that shoves the car out of the parking space on the hill is your "starter"

Well, no buddy required but you could consider gravity your starter.  But that's a bit of a stretch.

My sister would debate the issue of clutches. (Edit)  She would say real men (and women) don't need automatic transmissions. (/edit)  She looked for quite a while to find the sport sedan she wanted with a 6 speed manual tranny.

Having said that....  automatic transmissions have internal clutches, just not one you need to manually operate.  Not too sure here how CVT works from a stop.

Just my high school experience with a friend with a Le Car with no starter.

LeCar was light enough you didn't really need a buddy to push it.  I had a friend with one.

If you kept your air conditioning working, you wouldn't need to roll down the windows from the driver's seat.

None of our cars have electric windows or doors. I have nothing against either or technology in general, I just try to avoid things that I can see breaking and being real expensive to fix. Like refrigerators with internet in the door - who thought this was a good idea?

Same here but sometimes the simple approach is no longer available.

I have occasionally mentioned my fleet of Merc Grand Marquis.... NOTORIOUS for failed electric window mechanisms!!   I have had to replace 4 window regulator/motors on each of 4 different cars!   I have become very fast at this and can change them out in about 40 minutes each.  Parts cost just under $100 each window.

Not too bad given the benefits of the car.  Last trip to east coast we averaged 26 mpg riding in a big ole luxurious mush-mobile!  Best cruiser available since the 1966 Buick Electra 225.!!

Mush-mobiles give me motion sickness.
