The Car another George Barris creation

Universally panned by critics: A film about a car possessed by Satan himself (or was the car Satan?, heavens!
if you're flipping through the channels some sleepless night and come across this 70's "gem", it's worth a few laughs.


Satan's car: a heavily modified '71 Lincoln (and I always thought he was a Caddy kinda guy - it went nicely with his blue dress).

Elvira's Badass Kustom '59 Thunderbird:


And what about Ed Roth? you ask - well there are many books written about him, but out of respect for the grand master: Wanna race?

We now return to our regular programming.

What hasn’t been happening:
Consistent waves

What’s been happening:
Closed on a house
Moved into the house; ahh the move, can you say shitshow? So bad it was comical. There was nothing under the nasty carpeting so hardwood floors went in and they kick ass!

The basement garage – so many cool possibilities it’s overwhelming.

Entering a venture without any idea how busy owning a house can keep you; nor any clue how satisfying it would be.
