Englebert Slaptyback: abhorrent1

uber humper: I've heard of truckers putting a foil wrapped chicken in the engine compartment to cook it.

Someone did that on some TV show I saw a long time ago. Not a sitcom but some car show to see if it actually worked. I guess it does but I can't imagine it tastes very good.


In 2012 there was a Mythbusters episode - featuring Alton Brown - where they cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal using the engine and transmission in a late-1970s (IIRC) Cadillac convertible.

Here's a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqABijWMlxA

The results were quite acceptable, if memory serves.



hell, there's an entire cook book. I remember when the original came out.  Was probably 20 years ago...

jxb465: I stopped reading at "my Volkswagen Turbo Bug's cupholder" but I don't think I missed anything important.


I chuckled at that too, and thought "what, were they all out of Miata's that day Jim?"

This is going right into the books of bad ideas, along with the Car Bars and record players of the 50's.

It's always interesting when someone develops an idea for a new Car Toy like the add on dashboard LED TV screens of a few years back, and forget all about the potential lethal consequences for distracted driving in their rush for profits.

I knew a courier driver who bought one of those miniature TVs back in the 90's that plugged into the cigarette lighter of your car. A soccer fan, he stuck it on this delivery van dashboard, draped it in a towel to hide it from the cops and delivered his high traffic route while watching a game.

Back in the 80's, when laptops were showing up, some company designed a portable printer you could plug into your cigarette lighter and print things out as you drove.

It also ran on batteries for when you were away from your car or an electrical socket, but it ate those things by the handful. (They hadn't come out with real good portable computer batteries for it at that time. You tossed in a handful of D's.)

With all of the driver distracting things that have come out over the decades, I suspect someone out there wants to 'cull the herd' by giving folks assorted nifty ways to plow into things without having to get drunk first.

HailRobonia: It depends; how many eagles does it have?


An awful lot, but not as many as the luxury edition.

Alton also originally did it on the first Feasting on Asphalt, with similar results.

Notice the cup holder. The most important part of any car.

Also notice the steps. This is how the Duke Brothers really got their fat asses into the Robert E. Lee.

Photo hot from a NYT blog.

reillan: AMonkey'sUncle: reillan: I'm not going to brew my coffee on the way to work unless I can also roast and grind the beans on the way to work.  I won't drink swill.

Sn0bs will be sn0bs.

Even if you were being glib, my statement stands (generalizing).

I'm sorry, my nose was too far up my own ass to be able to hear you.


Cheers!

That's also were I stopped.  It's not just that he owns one, but feels compelled to tell everyone.  Enough already.

You can get them, but they aren't cheap.

But suppose I was running late and didn't have time to make that coffee

I don't care how late I am. Coffee comes first.

His name is "Charles Darwin," I believe.

I see them at Target and places like that every spring/summer (trying to get the travelers and those going back to school). Not expensive, just look around.
