Few of us are eager to drive around advertising a business without commensurate compensation, but when the ad in question is as cool as the one on today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe F100, exceptions may be made. Let’s see if this classic pickup’s price is just as exceptional. There are a myriad of ways in which the European Union is different from the United States, but perhaps the most important one is in Advertisement That popularity didn’t extend to yesterday’s 1987 VW Jetta, despite the car having an old school two-door body and a desirable R32 VR6 engine swap, both of which looked extremely clean. Neither however, When it comes to ultimate vehicle sales here in the U.S., actual This 1964 Ford F100 is one of that diminishing supply. Sixties trucks aren’t as numerous today as they once were, and finding one that isn’t either a clapped-out rust bucket or surgical operatory-clean garage queen is an ever more challenging task. I think … [Read more...] about At $4,500, Could This 1964 Ford F100 Pickup Turn You Into The Mac Daddy?

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I’m outta here next week to go do Christmas things. You’re not getting a Funbag. You’ll have to go mud-sledding or something. Deadspin founder and artificial Georgian Will Leitch will be your Jamboroo guest host. Got all that? Excellent. Let’s get on with your letters. Will: What is the best month to have a birthday in? Obviously, it’s not this month, because December birthdays are the fucking worst. Two people in my family have December birthdays, and I have the utmost sympathy for them and the token “extra item in the Amazon cart” they receive as a birthday gift. Even if you have a birthday in early December, you’re still ancillary to the holiday season. Your birthday needs to be 100 percent about YOU and all your glories! You must be the center of everyone’s attention for a full week of commemoration! Advertisement Anyway, I was born in October, and I’m a strong advocate for the October birthday, … [Read more...] about What Is The Best Birthday Month?
Saturday, September 12, 12:23 p.m. — G train en route to Greenpoint Ave stop I’m sitting on a train being laughed at by a group of teenagers. I’m wearing baggy, ripped jeans and a Cat In The Hat hat. They point and snigger, while I gamely try to join in the mocking good cheer by staring uncomfortably off into the distance and pretending I’m elsewhere, anywhere, besides here. Finally, we hit the Hoyt-Schermerhorn stop, and they hop up and file out. As the last kid passes by me, and the doors start to close, I hear him mutter, “Nice hat, asshole.” Advertisement And honestly, I couldn’t agree more. I am here to cover 90sFest, the latest idea in packaged nostalgia and ironic kitsch, only now in handy festival form. It’s part of the Brooklyn Live At The Inlet concert series, produced in tandem with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn. It’s meant to be a celebration of all things … [Read more...] about The dream of the ’90s is (barely) alive in Brooklyn: A tale of horror and survival
“Chapter 58” opens with an image that promises change: Claire Underwood is once again directly addressing the camera, but this time she’s being sworn in as Acting President of the United States. As the next couple of episodes progress, however, very little has changed. After pulling out all the stops to give us this incredibly unlikely turn of events, the writers don’t quite know what to do with it. Claire gets custody of the nuclear codes and the title of “Madame President,” but Frank is still omnipresent, pulling all the strings, and letting Claire know what she doesn’t know. It feels like a missed opportunity, at least so far. Why bother setting up such a far-fetched scenario if you’re not going to exploit it for all its loony-tunes potential? This show could use a little more Dr. Strangelove in its DNA sometimes. Advertisement Instead, “Chapter 58” is the third straight episode consisting mainly of people in offices … [Read more...] about Halfway through this
