    We need more reactions for the forum!
    Love this one.

    Especially love it when I'm corralled in by the slow driver in the fast lane, and the slow driver in the lane to the right, pacing the driver in the left lane!

    When I'm on two wheels... well, just never you mind about two wheels, but it sure would be nice to carry pocketsfull of ...

    Hey, what was that tabletop game from the 70s or 80s that was like a sort of small, vertical fake pinball, with one flipper and basin of little steel balls?

    They had a pop hit or two and also had their own morning variety kids show on CBS in the mid-70s.

    Goldie Hawn had a kid with one of them who is a pretty well-known actress. (Kate Hudson)

    My friend Chuckie had to run beside me everywhere we went.

    Haha, what's so terrifying about it? He was a good runner!

    Lol, Chuckie didn't have a bike, but he was spoiled because his parents split up, so his mom bought him a buncha toys. He had all the full size Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica figures. Personally, I preferred the beater bike :D

    This other time, we were playing with fire. Nothing major, just a little thing in an old coffee can or something. He was supposed to be the lookout. I'm sitting there getting a really nice little one going, and talking to him over my shoulder, "Hey Chuckie, look!" And then I realize, there's no answer from Chuckie. And I look back - no Chuckie. Chuckie's gone. Chuckie had abandoned his post atop the lookout wall. Then I turn back 180°, and here comes my dad storming across this abandoned lot we were playing in with this look of thunder on his face. I got dragged home by one arm, off the ground, getting smacked like a piñata.

    Frickin' Chuckie.

    I might've been partly responsible. We were set up pretty much within clear line of sight of the living room window, and my dad was like friggin' Eagle Eyes. He knew everything were were gonna get up to before we had a chance to think it up because he'd done it all and worse, lol Clearly I needed more practice.

    Ah, interesting - close!

    The one I remember was more like one of these - a Pachinko machine? Though I don't remember the layout being quite like this.

    I got a new Shelf from Home Depot online. When I first assembled it, I totally questioned it's built quality. No screws at all to hold it together. I was about to throw it in the trash as I hung it on the wall and didn't like it. But I went over the instructions, made sure it's press fit was correct, Put it up and puts me stuff on it.
    I wanted a place by my wash area to hold my foam cannon and Pump sprayer. I like that it's matching Red and it was the right size. Well after I rehung it and went over everything. It works as it should and I put a Tool box liner on it. It's nice check it out.

    So after I decided the Shelf was cool, I picked up another Towel bar for underneath to hang bottles as needed. Or I could use it to hang drying towels and use the other Towel bar for bottles on the left. Either way I like my small little wall storage area for wash stuff.

    The shelf is this if you like it. it's on a stupid good sale right now which sucks as I purchased mine before this sale but whatever I like it and I might buy another one.

    Looking at this picture, I'm gonna replace the Adams Polishes sign with Hyperclean Banner. I only have 1 and I use it at car Shows so I'm going to grab another one for the garage.
    Here is what it looks like , it's hanging in the back of my tent setup

    The original Big Wheel was introduced in 1969 and sold by Marx until 1981. The Green Machine was introduced in 1975. Both are still available in some form or another. Ownership rights and/or patents seem to have changed hands several times over the years.

    I never had either one. Or that Marvel Mustang I wanted in 1970. I did, however, have a green Schwinn bike with a shifter and a few other cool doo-dads. Sort my "Green Machine". :p

    My parents bought me a purple one with the 5 speed. I delivered the Washington Post for a couple of years. I used those handlebars for a cradle. I grew strong during those years. I could ride a wheelie for 1/4 mile too. B)

    I have to add I was one of the thousands who got impaled by a knobless shifter when I went to hop a curb and didn't make it. I almost became a trans by accident. :s I was very lucky and it missed all vitals but I did need stitches. That was 100% imbarasing. :D

    I never had a big wheel, they were too expensive. I definitely would have launched one had I been able to.
    I built ramps just like those to Evel Knievel over garbage cans, you know I did!

    I never had a big wheel, they were after my childhood.

    Curbside Classics reminded us today of the days when car interiors weren't all black, grey, or on the brown spectrum (or white, in the case of at least some Teslas)...

    I saw a '66-'67 Charger in an old garage yesterday. Only the grill/bumper were peeking out from under a worn out car cover, but I could see the roof line under it. Took me back years, it was the coolest car ever to me at the time.

    That original Charger was indeed a bit of a shock to the system when it appeared on the scene.
