*Yeah my bad on this one, I posted my first "draft". I changed the information on the bottom and included the venue info. It's at the Tower theater in PA. I'll see if I can have Clay change the jpeg to the correct poster. HA, then all your comments will be rendered moot.
OH and Kustom Kitten, the cars aren't as "blue" as they appear here on the actual posters for some reason when I switch my jpegs to RGB they lighten a great deal.
Thanks for all the comments...especially the Italy referenced and car info. :wink:
i love cheese.
jeph is cool.
that dude looks like every guy I see every day outside my coffee shop window here in this shitty redneck town.
your poster is really blue. i dunnoo....that sits weird in my head for some reason. sumptin ain't right with that. But i still think it's redneckerific! :mrgreen:
that 'teeny type' thing was a one-time joke with jeff kleinsmith. sort of an aberation.
besides - ALL the type was teeny (the stuff int he word balloon was part of the illos.)
so, i guess i'll just never get it.
'motino lines'. so that's what those little cartoon speed lines are called? did you learn that in cartooning school?? i've always wondered what to call those. know i know. GP.com = not just for entertainment.
COOL DOWN!!!??? I'LL COOL YOU DOWN, MISTER!!!
okay -- i'll break it down for ya. you are known for certain posters in which the information has been intentionally 'hidden'. do you want me to site individual examples? standard's comment was a JOKE. i don't think this poster contains any venue info. it's not really hidden in the guys whiskers. if it were, it might be considered 'chantry-esque' SAVVY??? boyoboyoboy
brian - cool down. it's no big deal. i just didn't understand the remark. since it somehow involved me, i wanted to understand it.
and, i STILL don't get it. what does the "tower chin whiskers" remark (which i don't understand) have anything to do with me?
i would really LIKE to understand, but i don't.
please explain "chantry-esque" in this context. i guess i don't get it.
don't worry about me argueing with you, i won't. i don't do that anymore here.
i just want to understand what you are saying.
A little more info for you all. In case you give a shit.
There are those who claim that it was Oldsmobile that created the first muscle car when it stuffed its hot new fullsize Rocket V8 into its midsize model to create the Olds 88 and Super 88 series back in 1949. But it wasn't until 1964 that Oldsmobile would return to the concept, encouraged by the success of the Pontiac GTO. Oldsmobile was the first GM division to follow Pontiac's lead, and began to offer fullsize muscle in its midsize Cutlass model. The package included the top engine available from Oldsmobile, a 330 cid V8 with the police package. It was named the 4-4-2 package, originally signifying the engine's 4 barrel carb, 4 speed manual transmission, and dual (2) exhausts. Although the specifications would change through the years, the name stuck. Although never the fastest or the best seller of the GM A-bodies, the 4-4-2 was known for its balanced performance, exceptional handling and the "W" and Hurst editions that would come out in later years.
The 442 actually started life as the Police Pursuit package. Which, believe it or not, resulted in 10 4-door 442s being built (no word on whether these were known as 4442s). Anyway, what this code got the buyer was a 330 cubic-inch V8 with a 4-bbl carb (rated at 310 horsepower), a 4-speed transmission and dual exhaust -- hence the name (4-bbl, 4-speed, dual exhaust). Also thrown in the mix was higher rate springs, front and (surprisingly) rear sway bars and heavy-duty cooling.
L-69: Stay with us, there are some W-codes coming up! This option specified the 400 cubic-inch Tri-Carb V8 in 1966. Rated at 360 horsepower, the Tri-Carb engine was only available in 442s. This engine was also the basis of the W-30 performance package that debuted in '66, although W-30 Tri-Carb engines got different camshafts and a unique Force-Air air cleaner setup. Since the kill-joys in GM management banned multiple carburetors after 1966 (except on the Corvette), the L-69 Tri-Carb engine was a one-year only animal with some 2,129 being produced.
L-78: After 1964, those wanting the 442 actually checked off this box (except for those ordering the '66 Tri-Carb 442, in which case they checked L-69). The lucky buyer got all the heavy-duty chassis components found on the '64 model, along with a 400 cubic-inch, 350-horse V8 and the requisite 442 identification. Oh, an automatic transmission was made available in '65, which was also the first year for the 400 engine, which meant 442 now stood for 400, 4-bbl, dual exhaust.
Does that help at all?
Well Art, it goes like this... 4 Barrel- 4 speed - 2 exhaust.
Jeph, as you also probably know, or maybe you don't, an Oldsmobile is made by General Motors which is the same company that makes Chevy Camaros. So an Olds sucks just about as much as a Chevy. In fact it would suck pretty much identicly.
The Olds Cutlas is essentialy the same car as a Chevy Malibu/ Buick Skylark/ Pontiac Tempest.
I'm just messin' with you anyway man. lighten up.
