    This is the first time I can remember commenting here, so... What did I just stumble into? Walp expresses sympathy for hurricane victims, gets called politically correct, Charlie Hebdo swings at low-hanging fruit, and then Walp asks Hass not to gas his Jews.

    I asked Crni to not gas my jews, just a correction.

    Imo Charlie Hebdo gags are pretty juvenile and "oh so provocative", those I've seen anyway, but all of them at that... reminds me of those poop-and-penis-humor comic magazines me and my friends giggled at when we were 12 and those magazines were actually a thing. Half the jokes in there, between the poop and the penises, were depressed jokes about cartoonists doomed to do poop and penis jokes for a living

    I'm honestly surprised that apparently nobody has yet build a gasser from a Buick Century where they put the exhaust straight through the classic Buick-holes in the side.

    I really envy the american car market. German cars from the 50's just don't look that good. The closest we ever got to a style like that is with some Opel models.

    Yep, they actually stole some design from Czechoslovak manufacturer Tatra, what a desperate move! :mrgreen:

    "When Czechoslovakia was invaded by the Nazis, the production of the T97 was immediately halted, and the lawsuit dropped."

    What a wild coincidence.

    You don't say? You mean you think they rolled off the assembly line like that? Look under the hood at that big ugly ass suspension for a clue. ;)

    The joke was that this type of car is called "gasser". They're early 50's/60's drag racing cars that ran on gasoline, hence the name. They often had simplified and raised front axles to make the car lighter.

    They were not meant to ride comfortably or be pretty, they only had to do the quarter mile fast.
