The Sting

Sunday, 03 February, Year 5 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

The Stingi is pretty cool. Newman has a cute little mischevious moustache, Redford plays a hooker, engaged in the oldest occupation in the world. No, not sex, theatre. Theatre for the benefit of the contextually-challenged.

Unrelatedly, this is my favourite car design of the classical period, and quite possibly of all time :

the-sting-car

Anyone know what it is ? Anyone got one for sale ? Any pinup broads that look good dressed as flappers wanna drive it around ?

O, the film. The film is great. You should watch it.

    Hum... I guess you're right.

  7. What you've got (and it's in that db) is a 1932 Ford V8. Like so:

    That Buick's sweet though. Looks like a big mint ice cream popsicle.
