A New Feature----> Todays Worthless Trivia.
« on: August 15, 2006, 04:39:54 AM »
Hello All!
Today I'm gonna start a new little feature that I like to call, "Interesting and Little Known Facts."

Unfortunately, my wife, Cat, told me to name it, "Today's Worthless Trivia!"

I can't imagine why!

Look here to see what the Trivia will be about next!

Todays trivia has to do with Daimler Chrysler and it's current advertising icon, Dr. Z.

Dr. Z is actually Dieter Zetsche and is the actual Chairman of the Board of Daimler Chrysler.

Have a great Bussin' Day!

Yesterday was VJ Day.  That ended the WW2.
Very few knew or reported on it.

And that's too bad, Frank. One of the most defining moments of the 20th century, and we get virtually nothing in the press.

I fixed mine.  If you don't know Trigger and Silver then there is just no hope.

Thought Diamond Rio was the musical(?) group.  The truck was Diamond Reo.

Tom I may have mis-spelled the truck name although I thought it was Rio (of course I don't get paid much for thinking & it's been yrs since I saw 1 & Dallas drove 1 LOL!) ! But I can assure you the music group was REO Speedwagon ! Oh what a great group ! I can hardley believe that they are still rock'n together after all these yrs ! (I heard about a concert they put on just this summer somewhere up in N. IL!) I still remember Rock'n the New Year ! With them in 1980 ! Had backstage passes and still have the concert jersey (somewhere!) BK  ;D

Hey BK,
I ain't all THAT old!
Although I did drive some A's B's a R model Macks. And we did have a Diamond Reo yard mule. The one I really liked was my dad's Diamond T. 8V53T twin stick and deep reduction rears.

By the way, does that concert Jersey still fit?

You'll have to get it out and show it off at the rally!

Dallas that concert jersey was for a big bullheaded teenager ! I'm 2 1/2 - 3 times the size I was then ! So no it don't fit no mo! But I remember seeing it sometime last spring or somethin and it was in a pile being donated to "Goodwill" and I saved it ! It may not fit but brings back many many good (and stupid, which reminds me that we really must of had a guardian angel looking over us as we grew up with some of the stupid things we lived thru not to ever tell about ! LOL! ) memories from High School Daze !  Wow things I can't imagine an idiot doing today ! Opps did I say that? LOL! BK ;D


If enough people put on their registrations that they are interested in having a great (the BEST in my opinion) Bus A/C man look at and discuss their A/C's with them I'll invite my A/C specialist to the "TN Fall Bus Bash"


But ya gotta register and put it on the registration form, so I know there is enough interest in it to ask him to take time out of his schedule to come over for a day! BK ;D
