Pleasant Valley Chaos Theory

273cu V8, four on the floor Hurst shifter. And a back window that can cook a pizza. My first car was a white 1964 Barracuda. I was pretty proud of it.

If You're the Smartest Person In The Room... You're In The Wrong Room.

I wanted to contribute my current day-to-day experience which shares much in common with those posting and agreeing that "They Can't  Live On This Planet Anymore!" and to offer what helps me through it every day.
