If I were to ask you to name the first car that really did it for you… the one car that sparked your interest in hot rods or fast cars in general, what’s the first car that comes to mind for you? For me, there was always some interest in cars. It was and is in my blood. I’m convinced that it’s genetic. My parents were rabid car fanatics, and here I am, passing that gene on.
If I were to ask you to name the first car that really did it for you, the one car that sparked your interest in hot rods or fast cars in general, what’s the first car that comes to mind for you?

Being a bit of an engineering-minded car geek, I like to tinker. However, with respect to having a warranty, I needed to restrict my tinkering to either factory-approved mods and pieces, or just throw all of that payment-offsetting goodness when it comes to repairs.

Continually working to make you the smartest bastard near the water cooler, today I present the Brian Degree of Injective Idiocy, which aims to illustrate the vast complexity of idiots and their behavior, describing said behavior as a sort of Menger sponge (that being something which exhibits an infinite surface area and zero volume) based on the idea of the Facebook news feed.

I’ve had this shred of paper hanging over my desk for as long as I can recall, and the words on it have always proven true: “All things are delicately interconnected.”

I was but a toddler when Steve Lisk’s brutal ’71 Hemi-powered Challenger (it was originally a 383 car) prowled Woodward Avenue, yet that car carved a place into the foundation of my car guy-ness. And forty years later, it reenters my world. All things are delicately interconnected indeed.

History always begs to be rewritten. Being a physics aficionado, the theory of multiple dimensions holds a special place in my brain. Couple that with a love for all things science fiction, and my synapses light up with boundless ideas and tales of the bizarre. Taking the above into consideration, behold the final iteration of the winningest Thunderbird on the opposite side of the space-time bubble.
