Jeepers Creepers! I'm suprised the two didn't tear apart and surprised more that they were able to pull this as one piece up on the flatbed. Hope they are all ok....

Yeah, that's what surprised me. The RV looks like it was on its side or roof at one point, but the two vehicles are still hitched. The truck's windshield was shattered pretty good on the driver's side, but I didn't see much more than that. I hope they're ok too!

Someone had money to burn. Those things cost over $50,000.

$50,000?! It looked fancy but I had no idea it ran that high. In fact, my main concern was that it would be missed by a big truck looking to make a quick lane change. the TREX sat very low on road. But again, alot to take in visually.

Cool old 57' Plymouth with the fins, still love those old cars. That taxi-cop car is funny, bet they have caught a few unsuspecting speeders with that. Wow, that Trex14, starting at 59,900. I'd like some doors for 60k. It has a 1400cc Kawasaki engine, and light weight (1040 lbs), I'm sure its a rocket. Doesn't look too safe though. It's only 42 inches high. I'd rather have the old bug with the chrome eye lids. Quite a load to carry, a crumpled RV and truck together.

Up north where I am, we got some snow, I was listening to the police scanner, on Radio Reference. That's a pretty cool site if you enjoy listening to police and fire calls. Trucks and cars all over the place in the KC area yesterday. And the same way in Omaha. People don't seem to remember from year to year ya gotta slow down in the snow.

First and foremost, let me apologize because I can never take/post pictures of what I see while out and about in our fair city. I'm stubborn and have not yet joined the ranks of smart phone users. One day soon I'll graduate from basic text.

.......parked at Las Palapas 410 and Broadway. It was lima bean green with a black cloth top. it was beautifully restored and I think the car winked at me while I approached the menu board.

I googled info and picture based off plate that indicated it was a 1950 and the badge that idenfitied it as a Ford. I remember the badge on the trunk, stood out distinctly. Kudos to you Mr/Miss Ford Lover....

...on my way to work 90 East I spotted a car with Alaska plates with a Spurs license plate frame. Later on Zaramora, an Air-Trans Ambulance with driver side window opened. I thought it was strange because it was 44 degrees this am until I saw the cigarrete dangling from driver's hand. Somehow the two just didn't meld.

You really need at the very least a simple phone that has a camera. That's all I have and its ok. I wouldn't call it a smart phone, but it's smarter than I am and it works fine for me. You come across some interesting things so hope ya get a camera phone soon.

lol...I do have a camera on my phoneTodd00, I just don't have internet because I rarely used it...so be gone extra fee. This is what I have. But if I had to get a smart phone, I'd have to get one with keyboard, I don't care much for touchscreen.
