One and a fifth.

But Captain, I didn't hear you order Tanqueray on the rocks!

What happens when billionaires order lots of toys direct from China for immediate at-home delivery to their seaside condo.

Maybe they should bring curb feelers back ~

How does Fred Flintstone stop a ship? By dragging it along the pier or seawall.

Nice looking Eldorado, like the color. I recall curb feelers on some of my fathers cars over the years. They made a racket when you got too close to the curb. A useful option on many cars. No more parallel parking now for the most part. I can't remember the last time I had to do that but it was required for getting my drivers license back in the fifties. Don't know if it's still required. Pete

The whole idea was to keep from scuffing up your white walls against the curb when parking. Worked too but then they did away with white walls. I loved those Goodyear tires with the white hash marks all around the side of the tire. Double Eagles I think they were called. Had them on a 65 Pontiac convert back in 65 but couldn't afford them after that. Goodyear also had a tire insert that went inside the tire so you could keep going if you had a blow out. For the Double Eagles and the blow-out inserts you paid $250 per wheel.
I did have a blowout too. About 20 miles South Of Macon,Ga. on I-75. I was cruising at 90 mph when it happened and the blowout insert worked perfectly.The tire was totally shredded but I never lost control of the car. I put the spare on, went to the Goodyear place in Atlanta and they gave me a new tire for free. I liked that. Oh ya! I did have curb feelers on that car. They worked great. Pete

1. Pull the pin.

3. Scoop up lots of fish.
