Last Call: Maybe It Was Something You Ate Edition

With its custom nose featuring lidded lights this 1964 Ferrari 250 LM Stradale looks like it just swallowed a bug.

        Odd, it worked fine when I posted it. Ironically, yours is now broken too. It works if you use HTTP instead of HTTPS:
        That seems to be the only image of the thing too, or at least the only one I found before my patience ran out.

          I found the same image in a few places, but not hosted with an image suffix other than “.jpeg”. That address you & KAC both posted isn’t an image file, just a page with the picture.

            But in that picture it looks less like Dingo Dog’s car!

            My absolute favorite book as a kid! My 5 year-old nephew digs it just as much as I did 40 years ago.

    Let’s give the sad Italian some happy Japanese companion:
    Staying awake with a sick boy tonight. Exhausting!

    Mission Accomplished!
    For the 4th time, Mighty Steve (a.k.a. Steve The Unremarkable White Pickup) has made the annual trip to Mexico and back. It’s a 1200-ish mile round trip. This is the second year I also put DirtBike! (a DRZ400S) in the Ol’ Longbed (sorry) and also the second year I took US 101 on the way back so I could stop in Solvang at the Motorcycle Museum. (Ended up not going to the museum, though, because time constraints.)
    Fun! Weather was hella cold. Colder than last year, and last year it snowed for the first time in 80 years. DirtBike! went on a few journeys, under myself and HoneyBunny. HB bailed once and I remained upright all week. At one point I went on a 50 mile ride around the dry lake bed (Laguna Salada.)
    $277 worth of fuel, including 5 gallons for DirtBike! I’d say we burnt up about 80 or more gallons of premium.

      Sounds like an excellent time!
      I need a Steve.

        I recommend buying a classic motorcycle. That will explain your sudden need for a longbed pickup truck.

          I don’t know if I can wedge a 4th two-wheeler into the garage. (81 Honda Passport, ’76 Yamaha XS500, and a ’99 Kawasaki ZRX1100 are taking up space in there already.)

            This answer was correct.

            Motorcycles are like Jello. There’s always room for another bike. As it stands, sounds like you’ve got all the justification you could need for the truck.

            Well, I’ve got a Sawzall & an Outback wagon that I hate… DIY Baja would actually meet many of my truckish needs.

      I think you’re supposed to see your doctor if you remain upright all week.

    Spotted on the way to get tacos earlier tonight:

    Bond turned left prior to reaching the taco truck. His loss.

      My underlying assumption would be that this is a decoy with an uninteresting long-legged decoy at the helm. While the true Mr. Bond knows how to drive in style.

      1. dead_elvis Avatar

        Well, this Mr Bond appeared to be an Asian gent in his 20s, so your guess may be correct!

    Ferrari street edition of a race car in those years = doesn’t really matter. The race car had good headlights that looked better too.
    There was a 250LM in Australia back then, raced 1965-68 then retired and actually driven on the road before historic racing. Later owned by Ralph Lauren?
