Last Call- I Wouldn't Steer You Wrong Edition

Steer Car
March 15th marks the date of the 20th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, and this year the show will be highlighting “Cars of the Cowboys.” That will include Leo Carrillo’s famous Steer Car, a 1948 Chrysler Town and Country convertible with a longhorn head mounted between the headlights. I find it both amazing and more than a little disturbing.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

          If it’s a steer car, they must have removed a few nuts?

            Pancho never had any issues taking the bull by the horns on or off screen, but most especially when he couldn’t manage to engage reverse.
            Oh Ceessco!

            It’s a Chrysler thing: the left nut has left-handed threads, the right nut has right-handed threads. The engineers were stubborn as bulls back then.

    It has some cons for me, maybe the functionality I’m looking for can be tailored in later. Or, operator error.
    Editing comments:
    *Can’t pick and choose the size at which images are displayed. Sometimes, I just want a thumbnail displayed, and I can’t always find one or don’t have the time to edit one down. I’m also not fond of having to click ‘see more’ to see the lower half of a pic, especially when it’s a pic of a car with nice/original/completely wrongo wheels.
    *Can’t just completely delete a comment
    *Can’t seem to remove pics from comments when editing
    *Personal Beef: I had a Disqus account already, but I trust Hoons with more potentially identifying information than the trolls on their other sites. So now I have two.
    *Atomic Toasters is still on ID
    *Easier to post rich content, from your desktop or URL
    *Actually works

      The “can’t completely delete comment” thing may be a glitch specific to its application here, or an option unintentionally enabled by the Masters of the Hooniverse (perhaps a default setting w/Disqus?). On the various NPR comment threads I’ve been privy to, there are the occasional “this comment deleted” posts, which (I assume) differ from the far more rare “this comment has been removed”.

      It works ok, here’s what bothers me:
      – Pictures are not displayed per default, have to be toggled to “view”
      – Loads slow and only partially (“see more” at the bottom, same with longer comments)
      – Lost control over image formatting and display (see above)
      – I can actually like my own comments, mohaha.

    I guess calf scour yellow was an appropriate color choice.

    Never herd of it.

    Cinemagraphs. I like them. There’s room to do a lot more with them.
    Hey! I can put text after the image!

    Will our I.D. info/logins be transferred across at some point?
