  • I have to laugh at this eBay seller

    I watch car photos on eBay and I am used to seeing cars mis-named and the wrong year, but I just had to laugh at the description of this photo.

    Item: This listing is for (1) Photo of a Policeman filling his car with gas. Notice where his gas tank is - on the hood of the car!

    Obviously this is a gas station attendant (they used to wear uniforms like that) using a buffer on a 38 Chevy.

    I have sent the guy an email, so he may change the description.

    So policemen fill up civilian's cars with buffers? Must be a Pacific Northwest thing. (Note the Washington plate).

      No Len... you've got it wrong. He's a space alien who has come from the future (where he cannot afford to buy sufficient quantities of gasoline to get home) to suck gasoline from vehicles, while it appears he is polishing them! [)][:0]

        no, no Mark. That '38 Chevy had a rotary engine requiting rotary fuel injection.

            Perhaps it is an Emergency Medical Technician with a defibrillator trying to shock restart the Heartbeat of America.

            CLEAR!

                    It's not a 38 Chevy...it's a 28...look at the license plate.

                    (My old Texas antique vehicle plate began with 31. People were always asking me if my Bearcat was a 1931 model. It took me awhile to figure out they were getting the idea from the plate.
                    Of course with a huge brass radiator, antique brass headlights, 34" high pressure tires, artillery wood wheels, right hand drive and no bodywork to speak of, it looks unlike a 1931 anything.)
