Is it a Mercedes UTE? Is it a Ford Tempo Pickup?

WTF is this thing? Half car, half pickup truck. Maybe it is a Transformer?

I asked the builder/owner, AKA:  Crazy Old Man of this vehicle a few questions.

Q: What is it?
A: The title states that it is a 1993 4-door, Green Mercury Topaz. I like to call it a Mercedes UTE.

Q: What is a UTE?

A: UTE stands for Utility. They are mainly built in Australia and are based on a passenger sedan, with a seamless body-molded tray. A Ford Ranchero or the Chevy El Camino are American versions of the UTE.

Q: Why did you build this?
A: To see if a custom vehicle could be built in the driveway using hand tools and very little money.

Q: What tools did you use?
A: A borrowed reciprocal saw, a hand held grinder a saber saw, circular saw and a drill and hand tools found around the home.

Q: How long did it take you to build?
A: Around six months of work in my spare time.

Q: So how much did it cost?
A: I bought the car at an auction for $350. I spent $1,036.35 for parts and paint for a grand total of $1,368.35.

Q: Anything special in the car?
A: The car is a stock Topaz except for the body work. I have modified a 12V cooler into an arm rest. The Paint is Pettit Easypoxy Deck Paint applied with a roller and tipped with a brush.

More pictures of this build from start to finish.
This car is now for sale! Contact me at

The Birthers Hawaii Obama Conspiracy

Hawaii is not a state in the union of the United States of America. I am sure one of you birthers holds the true secret and special information to prove this.

You say Obama has no birth certificate. Please see the picture at the top of the page. Do you have one?

The birth certificate is a forgery except that Obama's birth certificate was validated by the Hawaii Department of Health.

Hawaii's two major newspapers, the Honolulu Advertiser and the Star Bulletin both report birth announcements of August 4, 1961 for Bark Obama. Maybe Obama can time travel?

Obama was smuggled into America by Islamic terrorists. Their master plan is to have a Muslim president who will destroy America from within. Gag me with a spoon.

WTF, do you think that Obama's parents smuggled him into Hawaii, faked a non existent birth certificate and got his birth announcement published because they knew that he would need this when he becomes president? Don't you think that is this was true that Clinton or McCain would have used this information?

The inconvenient truth is: Your kind lost the election!!!!

The world has to and is moving on without you while you lay their with your head stuck in pond muck.

No matter how much factual information Birthers are presented with, they have a mental illness, just as other conspiracy theorist have. All your strange beliefs spur people away from the Republican party, helping to destroying it in the process.

Thank you one and all for proving Darwin wrong. Not everyone has the ability to evolves.


Man Catches Fire After Being Tasered

The story doesn't match what the storyline promises, simply that, a man catches on fire because he is tased. The story line sounds impressive but as in many news report, the facts or the story lines are embellished.

"Western Australia police said they were responding to a complaint at a house when Mitchell ran outside carrying a cigarette lighter and a large plastic bottle containing what they believe was fuel. When he refused to stop running toward them, one officer Tasered him, police said in a statement.

The man was immediately engulfed in flames. The officer threw him to the ground and smothered the blaze with his hands, the statement said. Mitchell was charged with assault to prevent arrest and possession of a sniffing substance." KRISTEN GELINEAU, AP

Fire is a triangle. You need Fuel + Oxygen+ Heat.
So a man covered in gasoline (Fuel) in a oxygen atmosphere (Oxygen) gets tased (Heat) what do you expect besides a roasted marshmallow? I see embellishment in the news all the time. News report: "Cars were totally submerged on the road" as the background pictures show cars driving through the water up to the hub caps. One loan car that had been driven into a ditch had water to the hood. Either the story was embellished or the news editor does not know that submerged means totally underwater?

WTF? Are we being constantly lied too or are reporters that stupid?

"Don't taze me bro!"
