It's Veterans Day.   Some still do not like her at all.

Hot, though, no denying it.

My Dad, a Navy Officer from the Vietnam era despised Hanoi Jane til the day of his death... 

    I have to admit when I was a teenager I sometimes couldn't help yanking his chain by saying to him, 'Politics aside, I know you still think she is hot...'

She long ago admitted she was stupid and apologized for it.

well, if she really believes covid-19 was God's gift, as she said, she is even more stupid nowadays than she was back then, imho.

What was that?

Beauty, talent and brains don't have anything to do with each other.

Oddly enough I broke my teeth (literally) on a Honda 50cc mini bike in the early 70s. So my relationship with this honda B75 4 stroke (2 cylinder) engine was somewhat predestined.

I always was confident with 2 stroke outboards...could get them running and keep them running...but I have not had a 4 stroke recreational motor until this girl.

It took me a while to figure it out. I was seen frequently leaning over the transom with the cover off and  wrench in hand coaxing Jane to behave one time on a collision course in the seaway...

But she is a temp solution until I refit the Flyer with an electric inboard...anywho...despite covid, it was a season, replete with sailing and drunken debauched crapulence and competition...(everyone's favorite)

Peace, love and rockets!

Love the name Jane Honda! Early on we fell into the fun habit of naming our vehicles. There was Tricia Toyota (you'd have to be from the LA area to get that one) a 1984 Tercel AWD, Rex The Wonder Jeep a 1978 J10 PU, Mona the 1989 Subaru Justy, Zimba the 1992 Hyundai Rodeo, Hank the 1990 Chevy Silverado PU I still have, Harmon the 1998 RAV 4, Attilla the Hyundai 2008 Vera Cruz and lastly, running out of names, the Ridgeline is just R2 (Rex 2).

My Ridgeline is affectionately called the "Lesbian Truck".

Picture reminds me of a great line.

”Tourist” definition. A person who drives 1,000 miles to get his picture taken standing next to his car.

Two or four stroke? I loved my two stroke, but mixing in the oil every fill up was a PITA, especially in the winter.

Four stroke V4, 4 on the column, FWD with freewheeling trans. It even had an aluminum spoke wood rim steering wheel and a bullet hole through the passenger side floor.

I still scan BAT and SAABnet looking for an equal. Good ones are pricey!

We had a series of used Benzes with names like Bismarck ('85 500 SEL), Thumper ('59 190D), The Brick ('83 380 SL) and The Turret ('90 500 S). Thumper was my son's car. It looked cool and there was no way he was going to race it.

A guy in my class at school was from Alaska. HE had a 2 stroke (a 9? 90?) that had the narrow back wheel spread and everything.

I like watching them race winter rallies:
 

eve better, see 2:02

I had three 900. They were cool cars.

Be careful the singing video will lead to a. SABB story.  It made me spend. two years restoring a 93F.   Bud Clark, told me "it's like tinker belle with a hand grenade, and the pin is out."  Where else can you get a car with an expansion chamber, and freewheeling.  Brilliant cars, wonderful people.
