On my lunch break, went to take a 5-10 minute drive to the data recovery drop off point near work. After passing through the first light, run into this on the on ramp where the 2 southbound lanes have to merge... :ugh: The 3 northbound lanes (that don't merge) were just as gridlocked. Turns out, down the causeway was a nasty accident, which caused everyone to merge down to 1 lane, instead of 3. :hissyfit:

On the right edge of that pic, you can see a boat mast, that isn't going straight up in the air :undecided: Got a little further into the turn, to see the boat is half sunk :eek: No idea WTH happened there.

Took me 35 minutes to reach my destination, most of the accident had been cleaned up by the time I got there. All I could see was a blue F150, with a dented hood pulled over on the shoulder. About 6 police cars blocking off a bunch of the street and some tripods setup, but everyone was just standing around. Got everything situated in about 15 minutes and then headed back to the office. Traffic was still blocked off, no idea what they were still doing. Prepping people for holiday traffic later? :confused:

Speaking of Fords... :rolleyes: Saw this guy on the commute this morning, was hoping to get in front of him, or at least side by side for a better look. But the person in front of me was either on their phone, or had the worst reaction time ever, cuz they would sit there when traffic moved, and people would keep jumping in front of them. :mad:

Anyway, you can see there's no driver's side fender, or headlight. Bumper is loose too.

Been a while since we've posted in this one. Meant to post this a while ago, since my office is near the airport, there are budget parking lots in the area, one happens to be across the street. Saw this when leaving work one day :hopeless:

I saw this a few hours ago. The rear model badge says Aero. However there is only one exhaust, strange. That's a lot of exhaust coming out of one pipe for 6.0L engine.

I'm pretty sure that's how they came from the factory.

This was in the hospital parking lot.

I had to google that because I couldn't believe that they would put a Y pipe on a sport version vehicle with a 6.0L. You are absolutely correct though @Mooseman! They only had a single exhaust pipe on the rear.

And doing a bit research myself, isn't the stock SS exhaust also a single out the back? Basically the same as regular TB's?

Yeah, I know a while back there was a member on TV and TBSSO who was making aftermarket bumper valances that had dual notches for folks with dual exhausts that wanted it to look uniform.

Picked this up on the dash cam on the way to work the other morning. Pulled up behind a car, and noticed they were watching a TV show on their phone, suction cupped to the windshield. Wish I could crop the video and enlarge it some. If you watch it full screen, you can see them reach up to swipe and rewind the video.


I'm glad this person was in front of me, and not behind :popo:

The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office in Idaho said on Facebook that it was issuing a “felony warrant for Mother Nature for Illegal Dumping.” A storm total of about 10 inches of snow was measured north of Galena Summit while south of the summit, a total of 6 inches was measured. The sheriff’s office also responded to several stuck vehicles in the area.

“If you see [Mother Nature], please show her a calendar. She thinks it's Junuary…” the sheriff’s department wrote.
Winter storm warnings were issued for elevations above 5,500 feet in southwestern Montana, and forecasters warned that travel may be difficult on mountain roads. The warnings also extended into parts of north central Idaho. Department of transportation webcams from Idaho and Montana showed snow-covered roads throughout the day on Wednesday.

It actually makes a great tow vehicle. Torquey 6.0L, 4.10 gears in a 9", bigger brakes and heavy duty everything.
