I've always been in love with old cars of many different types. One of my all time favorites though were the '65 and '66 Ford Mustangs. The body lines on those just scream out "classic" the moment you lay eyes on one of those machines. I've owned at least 3 of them myself through the years which I personally restored very carefully with custom paint and fresh interiors. In fact one of the reasons I owned a body shop was to have the facilities in which to restore old muscle cars, primarily the ones built in the late '60s by GM, Ford and Chrysler.
One of the things I kept wishing though, was that Ford would come out with an all new Mustang that would faithfully recall the vintage Mustangs that I loved so much. But, for years they kept coming out with junk that had very little in common with that classic body style. Ford just kept missing the mark in spite of the millions of fans all over the world that wanted a return of the original lines but in a modern day muscle car.
Until 2005 that is, finally they brought out an all new model that at first glance did the original cars some justice. I watched the commercials on television and I got excited at what I kept seeing, hoping to finally see one on the road. The commercials however did not show a rear view of the cars before they were released. Every view was from the front and side of the vehicle and I have to admit, damn they sure looked great! Eerily similar to the early body style! I couldn't wait to see one on the road!
Man, this thing just looks great coming at you, even the side profile looks very cool! Then one day you actually see one pass on the road and watch it go by and you finally get a peek at the rear end of the car and HOLY SHIT, this thing has a gigantic ASS! A huge BUTT. It's carrying a loaded diaper! It can't fit thru the garage door with an ass like that! This thing has a seriously bad case of "JUNK IN THE TRUNK!"
Ford, Ford, Ford, you stupid bastards, you screwed it up yet AGAIN! Every time I see one of these things going by I'm reminded of THIS!
Ahhhhh, my eyes, my poor, poor EYES!!! Man this thing is just absolutely BUTT UGLY going away!!! And that's exactly what I want it to do, just go the fuck away! Ford, just give it up, you've had 40 years now to get this right and you've failed miserably at every attempt!!
On my last post I just wanted to point out that I wasn't serious about the Horribly Naked Tuesday thingie. I was just trying to poke fun at the real HNT. Of course if you guys want to post your own Horribly Naked pics, feel free! LOL That picture wasn't actually of me either, although I once had a really bad fall and incredibly my leg did look very much like the one in the photo! The moment I saw that photo the memory of that accident came flooding back. Gahhh!
In other news, I finally finished my webmasters certification course (6 months/150 hours) that I was taking thru Delgado University here in New Orleans with a final score of 97.32 overall! Yeah, I kicked some ASS!! Woohoo! With that out of the way I plan on doing another start up company after the first of the year to go for the commercial webwork in addition to my Blogs Gone Wild! site. The BGW! site will be seeing a lot of changes in the near future as well. I have a lot of plans in mind for 2006 and I can't wait to see what the new year is gonna bring! Hell yeah!
Here's a few links to some of my latest stuff if ya care to check it out! Python News which was a class exercise (I had to come up with all the content) and Clearly Expressed for a customer and a blog called Mallory's Poems and finally a blog I completed just yesterday, Desktop Flamingo, very cool!
Have a great weekend everyone!
