Looks more like Failure To Launch from here.
Accelerated LUNCH. As in, “Out to…”
“Standing there alone/The car is waiting/All systems are go/’Are you sure?’/The driver’s not convinced/The wheels are missing/No need to abort/The road trip starts….”
Hmm, anyone with a bigger screen able to read the message?
“Experienced canvassers who received Josh Harder(?) company training within past _2 weeks_ only.” Or close to that.
Careful what you write, with a G-body Cutlass, a 76 Malibu in the shelter and a vintage CRT -monitor computer outside, he’s definitely one of us.
Looks like the monitor is part of an emissions test machine or some other type of equipment that is probably lightly used and still doing the job so no need to upgrade.
Good point. A buddy has an old CAD laser cutter for making custom shaped veneers and stencils. It’s brilliant when it works and was expensive, but is only compatible with an Intel 286 processor for design and control . A while ago he was hunting for an operating 30 year PC to make it work. Not surprisingly they’re hard to find these days.
I was just at the HS my kids attended and they still have an ancient table top CNC router (that I brought from the Jr HS that was not using it, 10 years ago) they still use for new students that are learning the process before they set them loose on the $100k machine or even the $40k machines. It uses a hand built serial cable to connect to it’s ancient PC to make it work.
Gobble Gobble, one of us! We accept him!
That was my thought too
The “Accelerated Launch” sign is for the volunteer staging point for a get out the vote drive for the upcoming election. Yes, the repair shop focused on smog work judging by its name. The Cutlass was very nice and looked like a regular driver. The Colonnade was in fact an El Camino. And the Camry has a lot of cobwebs around the rear wheels.
Thank you for elaborating on this photograph and filling in the blanks.
I’m still not sure what “Accelerated Launch” really meant, but it was too funny to pass up next to the Camry. I should have captured the Cutlass too, though; it was quite nice.
