    but, but... I like our neighbors -- it would likely tick 'em off if I deconstructed their wall.

    That movie ranks #1 on the top 500 list I believe.

    I have this framed poster that I'll hang up again some day. ;)

    I’ll never forget the first time I watched it,
    thinking Andy hanged himself in his cell the night he escaped - even the morning guard’s reaction, staring into the (unbeknownst to the watcher) empty cell. Man, was I ever pissed, thinking it was going to end that way!

    Easily one of my most “re-watchables”...

    NOW THAT'S THE WAY YOU USE THE SPOILER BUTTON PEOPLE!!! I've stopped reading threads on this forum about movies and TV shows until I've seen the movie/show. You guys can't keep a secret! And for anyone that hasn't seen Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, they die at the end! :open_mouth:

    I love that graph! ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I just got ahold of 36 more rolls so I'm good for a few more months. Wife has her own stash. :D

    I'll bet Sam's Club will have plenty in stock later in the year when I need more.

    When I zoom in it looks like it may say "Special" on the side.

    Oh, you are right. 1954 to 1955 Buick Riviera Special. Looks identical. Thanks Milito.

    CH46E,
    Really nice pictures and history of your family.

    The three "ports" on the front fenders has been a Buick thing through the years.

    It's a 1955 Buick Special. My parents had one; a convertible. Two-toned green. Very, very cool car. :)

    I will take this Buick 88 any day of the week, and twice on Sunday..

    That's a car that doesn't get as much love as it deserves.
    Ad a 195x Crown vic to that list

    This Ford was in pristine shape.

    That's bad a$$! Love it.

    The blue cooler sticks out like a sore thumb though. I wonder what the top speed was...you think it would go faster than 35mph?

    That looks like it might be a pre-Model T Ford(???).
    I looked up the Model S, but it doesn't look quite right to me.

    ^^^ 1907 Model S Ford.

    EDIT: Naah -- the more I think about it... probably a "T" with a custom body (not uncommon, even when new). Late model Ts (second half of the 1920s) even had four wheel brakes :p and could be purchased in colors besides black (actually, very early Ts could be bought in other colors, too)... but by then the parade had passed the T by.
