They don't make 'em like this anymore



Wow. I just love those "shaver" grills on those 1954 Buicks. This Roadmaster is up for bid on Ebay right now. I know I should be paying attention to John McCain on Saturday Night Live right this very minute. He just did his opening skit and all America was watching and I'm an (unemployed) editorial cartoonist and there's no reason on God's green earth why I shouldn't be watching it in order to keep up with all the latest political crap but you've gotta see this Buick.

The perfect color scheme as well. Man. My friend, Tim came over tonight and mentioned it as something I'd most likely salivate over. He was right. I'm voting for that 1954 Buick Roadmaster for president. We don't need a Maverick. We need a Roadmaster.

Richard -- That Buick is a beauty alright, but let's not be knocking Mavericks. Fine little automobile, 27 mpg back in 1970.

Thank God those Japanese security guards had plenty of extra volleyball nets or that rhino could have done some real damage. Sort of reminded me of the rhino scene in "Ace Ventura -- When Nature Calls."
