Looks like an Early Pleistocene model, maybe circa 1,347,756 BCE. Can't make out the exact model without seeing the cuneiform VIN on the driver side door post. Maximum rated HP approximately 2 Neanderthal or 3 Cro Magnon. Excellent fuel efficiency at 1 rabbit per furlong. They just don't make 'em like this anymore. Attached Video shows the coveted convertible version, not the Mammoth fur hardtop model.

There was a later "Turbo-Titanis' version which seated only one, but was discontinued about 987,883 BCE.

So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends)

Malena Ernman was in need of cash, so she sent out Greta to sing.  ;)

Surprisingly the Swedish omnipotent gov. that cares so much for the wellbeing of children and society as a whole, including wellbeing of the whole world didn't have an issue with that.

It's truly...."touching"...that you keep such a sharp weather eye out for Greta. Or something.  :o

It's truly "touching" the amount of care we receive to stop the spread of covid.  ;)

Even more "Touching" seeing on the evening news refrigerated trucks full of corpses outside our hospitals, and having ambulance teams instructed to triage for survivability whomever they pick up before taking them to the ER for a 4 -8 hour wait to (possibly) get in. Oh, but that's probably some Swedish Hoax like the Moon Landing or Vaccines, right? Wasn't it too cool today to find out that there is no 50% vaccine reserve for second shots, that it was a clerical error by TrumpCo? So we're even farther behind the curve than we could imagine?

Is it just me or does anyone else remember not seeing reefer trucks full of chilled bodies outside our hospitals last year?

Do you mask up to possibly slow the spread & protect others, or is it all too much BS effort because a mask won't protect you? Maybe all we have left is to apply a basic group survival technique the Japanese learned back in 1918?

Others give a huge f@$@ck about me, why in hell should I mask up for them ???

If you/anyone is worried about themselves than mask up, no one is hindering anyone to do so.
