While they were working a lady stopped by and attempted to enter the restaurant. When Jeff informed her the restaurant was closed she started to get belligerent.

"I'm trying to get inside to eat" she said.

"I'm sorry - the restaurant is closed" Jeff replied. "We are doing a photo shoot for a calendar".

"But - there's people in there"....

"Those are 'actors'". Jeff explained that in order to make it appear more authentic they placed a couple of spectators, vehicle owners and their kids inside.

After a couple more volleys the lady finally stormed off. "Geez" she said "I just wanted a damn coney!

Great story and pictures, Keith!

having seen some Barris customs stuff up close in recent years it would appear George made a dash to the local Kitchen store as well as ACE hardware and the boat store to get pieces for his "customs".
I guess the vehicles were meant to look good on TV but not in person.

Clubs like a gambling club in Saratoga Springs, New York, as well as the Union Club of New York City, take credit for creating the now beloved club sandwich, short for “clubhouse.” But a new theory is floating around that the “club” is actually an acronym, standing for “chicken lettuce under bacon.”

This 1975 Ford Bronco was sold new at Ghent Ford of Fort Collins, Colorado and was marketed as a Denver Broncos Special Edition. It is said to be one of just 76 Bronco Rangers equipped with the package

Seniors at a Wisconsin high school pulled off what police are calling one of the best senior pranks they've ever seen.

At first glance, it looks like a terrible crash: A car plowed into the side of Cumberland High School, but it's actually an optical illusion, thanks to the creative use of tape and a tarp, some bricks, tire marks, and a half a car.
