Vanishing Point - 2008 Style






If you are a fan of Muscle Cars and chase scenes, as I am - then who could forget the ultimate 70's chase flick staring Barry Newman as Kowalski. OK, I am dating myself ...... but back in the early 70's it seemed that I DATED myself quite often, if you know what I mean. (ooooh did I say that out loud?)


Anyway - there were many scenes from this movie that made an impression upon my teen mind.
Who can forget the "Chopper rider" as he race into his yard and dumped his chopper in the dirt in a hurry to help the star of the movie?


Or the Blind DJ that guided Kowalski on his coast to coast trip in his high speed 71 Challenger! Of course that actor, Clevon Little , went on to star in many films after Vanishing Point.





But as a mid-teen my favorite scene of the movie, as well as any young man my age, was that of the Nude Motorcycle Rider - Ms Gilda Texter. Gilda where are you????






All of this build up to say that I am beginning my trip on FRIDAY from Cold & SNOWY CleveLand ====>
and after a right turn onto I-77 (9 hours in the Saaaaaab Turbo) and a quick left to Pinehurst North Caakalacki I will be home for a week enjoying the company of my bride and friends and family for the Thanksgiving Holiday! I am sure to spend some time on the Deuce, as well as a round tearing up the golf course.

One of my all time favorite flicks!
Delaney and Bonnie playing for the snake handlers out in the middle of the desert. Eric Clapton jumped ship from Blind Faith to play briefly with them but I don't think he was in this film. Also Leon Russell was their original piano player.
By the way Greta was credited as the Nude motorcycle girl.

Dude! This is one of my favorite flicks! I think about scenes from this movie at least once a week someplace or other.

Be safe and forget about the dozers,...you can get into more trouble messing with the bikini sportin' bikers.

Online sportsbooks cover them all. It's important to establish a bankroll and bet size. Many inexperienced sports bettors don't think about money management and pick an arbitrary bet amount. This strategy is very risky. It's always best to think about your bankroll and pick the right bet size based on your bankroll. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
