    Cool show.
    And yet another one that shouldn't have been remade.

    I'll make you one that looks exactly like it and only charge you a million bucks ..... :smile2:

    Read somewhere that the other MFP cars were barely running at all and that the original languished somewhere for a long time. I have some doubts about authenticity but I suppose for that $$ they'll furnish something. Cool but you'd probably be wondering why you bought it a couple of days later.

    Trump becomes first president named Daytona 500 grand marshal

    President Trump is taking part in this year’s Daytona 500. Not as a driver, but as grand marshal, which means he gets to give the “start your engines” command to the 43 entrants in The Great American Race. It’ll mark the first time a president, sitting or former, has ever held the role. The only other time a sitting president attended the race was when George Bush came in 2004, the year Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his first 500.

    All men in Alabama will be forced to have a VASECTOMY at 50 or when they have their third child under 'outrageous' state law proposed by Democrat

    All men would be forced to have vasectomies when they reach the age of 50 or have a three children, under a new law proposed by an Alabama lawmaker. Rep. Rolanda Hollis, a Democrat, on Thursday put the bill forward requiring men in the state to pay for the procedure within a month of turning 50 or the birth of their third biological child. The HB 238 bill to sterilize all men in the state has been branded an 'outrageous overstep' by critics.

    Hollis said she was trying to counter Alabama's abortion ban, which was temporarily blocked by a federal judge in October 2019.

    Bernie Sanders is tricked by Russian pranksters posing as Greta Thunberg who offer to endorse him in 'a cool rap video' with Billie Eilish and Kanye West

    Russian pranksters claim they called U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pretending to be climate activist Greta Thunberg and offered Thunberg's support to his campaign. Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who have fooled many high-profile victims around the world, posted a recording of the phone call on YouTube on Thursday.

    The call itself took place in early December, but the duo decided to release it more than two months later because of Sanders' success in Iowa and New Hampshire, Kuznetsov told the Associated Press in a Skype interview. In the recording, an unnamed female pretends to be Greta, and Stolyarov plays her father, Svante.

    His advisors should have warned him that the mention of Kanye was a giveaway of a trick.

    It's the Mary Poppins effect! Dick van Dyke, 94, hasn't aged in 56 years as he is seen looking remarkably like his character from the 1964 film


    [​IMG]

    Dick van Dyke had two roles in the eponymous film Mary Poppins starring as cheery chimney sweep Bert and cantankerous banker Mr Dawes Sr. The star - then aged 39 - hid himself under make-up and silver hair for the sneaky cameo and was credited in the 1964 film as Navckid Keyd, an anagram of his name. Pictured left: Dick Van Dyke backstage after a performance of The Last Ship aged 94. Right: Dick Van Dyke as Mr Dawes Sr in Mary Poppins, 39. Inset: Dick Van Dyke in the 1960s.

    That's weird as if a Simpsons effect. I think having a sense of humor attributes to longevity. :o_O:
    He has 82 works to his credit.
