The origine of the Continental Tire kit is something like this: The 1939 Lincoln Continental's short trunk with its external rear spare tire mount became a distinctive design. ... Similar external spare tire placements were added as standard or optional to popular mass-market and also described as a "Continental kit", borrowing their name from the production Lincoln Continental. And so a styling option was born. Jock Campbell found a group of these very heavily chromed classics, along with their custom kits. Enjoy.

You want a fast car? How about 331 MPH? 
That should do it for most of us. Take a look at the video below....wow!
FOUR RULES TO REMEMBER IN LIFE:

1. Money can't buy happiness - but it's far more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than on a bicycle.
2. If you help someone when they're in trouble - they will remember you when they're in trouble again.
3. Alcohol does not solve any problems - but then, neither does milk.
4. Many people are alive only because it's illegal to shoot them.

 
BONUS RULES:

1. I think all politicians should wear uniforms. You know, like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their sponsors.
2. Also, all politicians should serve only two terms -- one in office and one in prison.



THE YEAR WAS 1955.. (If I hadn't lived through it, I wouldn't believe it myself.)


Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter? 


If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store. 


When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President. 


I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making electric typewriters now. 


It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet. 


It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business. 


Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government. 


The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on. 


There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel . 


No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood. 


If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.
