Curbside Classic Outtake: Covering All Transportation Bases

Here’s some Saturday morning pictorial randomness to start out the day. Shall we have a thetruthaboutbuses theme today? I’m very fond of them. These folks living in this lot have a pretty wide variety of transportation options ready to roll, right down to the Cozy Coupe. They’re probably off riding their gas powered skateboard.

The thetruthaboutbuses theme is a great idea. Cars are great but buses should not be ignored.
DougJP >Instead of calling it the thetruthaboutbuses theme, why not just call it the continuation of the Eugene Tourist Board theme that has dominated this site for some time now. I'm with DougJP on this stuff. I love it. I would hope the local chamber of commerce is not blind to this aspect of Eugene's charm. btw, Doug, does JP stand for Jamaica Plain? (which would explain why you like this Eugene theme)
I took it to mean DougJP was expressing frustration at CC taking up so much space here on TTAC. I'm conflicted on this myself. I love CC and Paul's writing style. My age slots in right between Paul's and David Holzman's. These stories are wonderful trips down memory lane because I fondly (or not so fondly) recall most of the cars featured when they were new or at least used and a still-common sight. Still, I'm wondering if CC should be split off as a separate, companion website. There are so many cars Paul has "in the can" as he said, and it seems the only way to do the series justice is to have a separate site. This way, TTAC could concentrate more on issues of today in the fashion of Robert Farrago's hard-hitting style. This doesn't mean that articles giving the historical context of today's issues should be avoided; on the contrary, such a context is needed to understand where we are today in so many cases. (The GM Deathwatch series provided a good example of this.)
I am very fond of CC, but it may be too catholic. But then I thought RF did too many death watch pieces.
