Last Call- of the Wild Edition

Taxi-dermy

They say that advertising should be intrusive to get your message across, but not so much so that the intrusion overwhelms the message. I’d say this rolling ad for a taxidermy service straddles that fine line like a stuffed snail on a razor blade. 

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.

    Waiting for a guy on a bike to rescue the dog…

    When Acme finally failed him for the last time, Wile E. visited his local Chevrolet truck dealer. Now he could finally catch that roadrunner…

      Wrong post.

    It looks like Mr. Coyote is trying to get himself a piece of tailgate.

    It's good taxidermy work. Looks like the fur is holding up well to high speed.
    Now if he could have mounted that on the rear of a '69 Road Runner…

      Or a particular model of Ferrari – a Chuck Testarossa, if you will.

    A local vinyl-graphics company had a van with a child 'standing' on the back door, atop the rear bumper. 'Twas a bit startling the first time.
    Also, hey, I have a random question about engine layouts.

      I'd say Brendan is right, although I like ornery, too.

        Meanwhile, my Saab (albeit on a GM platform…) has it the 'normal' way around…

      No idea, really, but now you've got me curious — it makes sense to me that the exhaust manifold should be on the "back" of the engine, just so the exhaust then goes straight back down and out rather than wrapping around the block, but then, every 4-cylinder superbike motor I can recall seeing has its headers on the "front" of the engine and wrapping under the block. *shrug*. Protecting parts of the fuel system by positioning them somewhere other than in front of the engine sounds like a good explanation for putting the exhaust out front and the intake around the other side.

      I don't think there is a single correct arrangement for an inline engine in general. If anything I'd think the safer arrangement with a cross-flow head in a transverse FWD car would be to have the intake & therefore the fuel injectors/rail/etc. on the firewall side of the engine, which would seem to be the normal arrangement. Then there are engines like the old Chrysler 2.2 that weren't cross-flow and had both intake & exhaust on the firewall side.
      (But, my thinking on this topic may be skewed. I make my living designing engine-related systems on a certain line of construction equipment. We use 2 families of inline 4- and 6-cylinder engines, from one supplier… and the larger-displacement engine family has its intake & exhaust sides opposite to the smaller-displacement engine family.)
      WRT graphics, it reminds me of a Fargo-area home HVAC contractor's vans…

      I think biggest reason was the benefit of having the cat closer to the engine. I made bigger reply there.

      Probably the only guy on the planet who would consider hitting a deer at 60 mph an improvement to his car…
      (I don't want to see this guy's living room, ugh.)

    I'm no PETA type, but am I the only one who finds this really fucked up?

    1. Rust-MyEnemy Avatar

      I kind of agree. The owner should get stuffed.

    It is tacky , but very effective advertising.
