It’s July the Fourth, so we’ve taken the day off to dream wistfully of oddball cars, grill various meats, and celebrate the holiday in our own unique ways. Or, in the case of one editor, perform all of the above while also helping a friend move. (Car owners never catch a break…)

Before returning to the grill, we’d like to send our loyal and diverse readers a big “thank you” for sticking with us and engaging respectfully with our writers, no matter how offbeat the topic. This shared passion for automobiles keeps us going and inspires us to do more, and to do it better.

Happy Independence Day!

      Guess I’m gonna have to drink American… used up all the Foster’s cleaning sludge out of an oil pan.

      All the big beer brands were bought by Europeans anyway, so it’s their fault now.

      The Commonwealth countries get all sorts of holidays, why not appropriate from one of the ten US federal holidays too (of which, six are actually observed by all)?

    “You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac ElDorado convertible. Hot pink! With whale skin hub caps and all leather cow interior and big brown baby seal eyes for headlights. Yeah! And I’m gonna drive around in that baby at 115 mph, getting one mile per gallon, sucking down quarter pounder cheeseburgers from McDonald’s in the old fashioned non-biodegradable styrofoam containers. And when I’m done sucking down those grease ball burgers, I’m gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag and then I’m gonna toss the styrofoam containers right out the side and there ain’t a goddamned thing anybody can do about it.

    You know why?

    Because we got the bombs, that’s why. Two words, nuclear f-‘n weapons, okay?

    Russia, Germany, Romania. They can have all the democracy they want. They can have a big democracy cake walk right through the middle of Tienanmen Square and it won’t make a lick of difference because we’ve got the bombs, okay? John Wayne’s not dead. He’s frozen. And as soon as we find a cure for cancer, we’re gonna thaw out The Duke and he’s gonna be pretty pissed off. You know why? Have you ever taken a cold shower? Well multiple that by 15 million times; that’s how pissed off The Duke’s gonna be. I’m gonna get The Duke and John Cassavetes and Lee Marvin and Sam Peckinpah and a case of whiskey and drive down to Texas…” – Denis Leary

      There’s a beautiful blue Eldorado with white top and white interior looks completely original – for sale down the block from where I live. I’m not sure of the year but the badges on the fenders say: 8.2 liter

      Another good quote for ya: “Americans TALK horsepower but DRIVE torque.”

      Got that CD floating around someplace — “No Cure For Cancer!”

      Classic!
