Call me, Melinda
Frankly though, I don't want to go through another alienation of affection lawsuit after that Bezos ordeal
beat it Poindexter, Melinda and me are going shopping for Duesenbergs
You don't need Washington to break up Big Tech- just call Homewrecker Dave, the Silicon Gigolo
I hate to reveal pillow talk, but Melinda told me she has two problems with Bill: 1. micro 2. soft

Today's episode of #DavesCarIDService salutes Dashboards With Dash:

1. 1958 Edsel
2. 1959 Pontiac
3. 1960 Imperial
4. 1961 Chrysler 300G ImageImageImageImage
I'm a sucker for a fine dashboard & they are often a vital clue when I ID a junkpile car. The period 1958-62 was the absolute apex of the dashboard arts, providing the American motorist an over-the-top Googie cockpit worthy of a UFO. Sadly we will never see their likes again.
Before getting to today's batch of IDs, here are the guidelines for any newcomers with a mystery car to solve: Image

car in front of us is a 1963 Chrysler New Yorker wagon.

Quick history of drive-in/-thru restaurants: the 1st drive-*in* is generally accepted as Kirby's Pig Stand in Dallas (1921); 1st drive-*thru* Red's Giant Hamburg, Route 66 Springfield Missouri. ImageImage
*Red's drive-thru opened 1947, BTW. The longest running drive thru is In-N-Out, opening 1948. The first drive-thru *only* restaurant was the first Jack-In-The-Box, in San Diego, 1951. McDonalds was somewhat a laggard, never having a drive thru until 1975. ImageImage

yes ma'am, all 3 are owned by my pal Beau Boeckmann and built or restored by my other pal Dave Shuten; 2 nearest are Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Beatnik Bandit bubbletop and Tweedy Pie T bucket. Blue coupe is the Iron Orchid 34 Ford 5 window.
I believe all 3 are currently at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY if you want to take a gander. For my money, the Iron Orchid is the bitchin'est hot rod built in the last 20 years.
fun story about the Tweedy Pie T: it was owned by Ed Roth, but originally built by Bob Johnson. In 1959 it won best of show at the 1st Annual Disneyland Car Club Day & Autocade. That was also the Last Annual, due to the tire-smoking antics & general delinquency of the hot rodders

Real Americans only drink meat-based beer
"Hey, this beer is pretty good, what's in it?"

"Wheat, barley, and hops"
We are in an inescapable vortex of stupidity
