  • An other inaccurate sob story

  • #2
    Do these people get PAID for producing such inaccurate material? And BTW, I was taught years ago to be very careful about using the word "everyone" -- because it will never really be everyone. I, for one, remember seeing (or at least reading about) every one of those examples -- so not everyone has forgotten them.

      Back about 2004, I remember seeing what was once a Woodill Wildfire in the upper level of Max Corkin's garage in Lewistown, PA. It had a Studebaker chassis and Champion 6 engine. Maybe a tree fell on it. I think Bob Valpey also had a black one, but his was in great condition, had a 289 V-8 and lots of goodies.

        I remember all of them except the Riker. I heard of the Riker, but do not remember the car.

          Aaron Young pens a lot of nonsense like that, Bob.... BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            I saw my first Riker at the Concourse d 'Elegance, Forest Grove about 3 years ago. A very interesting story and innovative vehicle.

              Interesting post. I see glaring errors on a regular basis on FB. How hard is it to fact check? BTW, "Another" is one word, not two.
