Every Fry's location has a unique theme. In Burbank, it's Alien Invasion, with a giant flying saucer crashed through the front of the building and a running gun battle between 50's vintage Army troops and Alien conquerors all throughout the inside. In North Dallas it's a cattle drive, with cowbows and livestock all throughout. The Woodland Hills store is Alice in Wonderland, which is kind of freaky. In Anaheim, it's all NASA, and the San Jose store is a Mayan temple.

In San Macros, it's the Lost City of Atlantis. There's a large shark tank (with sharks) at the entrance, several smaller aquariums with "artifacts" in them, and of course, the Giant, Slowly-Rotating Orb. The Orb is kind of fun, actually. It's solid stone, but it's floating on an essentially frictionless surface. So while it has tremendous mass, you can twirl it around with your hand.

Our store also has two giant (~30' tall) Jacob's Ladders at the front entrance, and although I can't see how they are relevant to the theme, they are pretty cool.

Our Fry's in Wilsonville is a converted Incredible Universe. It's very boring.

Easily the biggest Ive ever seen, with its legs fully extended about as big as a standard soup can lid.

Was looking for a shell, saw this guy on CL advertising a 91 with 250k miles and non-running, with an "electrical problem", all for $700. Guy who was selling it got the car as a gift from his father-in-law, so he just wanted to get rid of it. According to him, someone tried to jump it and reversed the polarity. They took it to a mechanic and he quoted them $1500 to "replace the whole electrical system".

I was the first one to come look at it last Saturday, in the middle of hurricane Irene. I wore swimming shorts and flip flops It had a broken off main 80A fuse. You know, as someone tried to pull it out with pliers without first removing the bolts that hold it I offered him $500 on the spot (had a tiny bit of rocker rust on one side, not visible but it's rotting underneath - used that to bring the price down). Then came on Wednesday with the fuse, replaced, jumped the car and it ran like a champ although completely dead battery. And yesterday I picked it up with my dad and drove it 40 miles home just fine. Battery seems to be a bit charged now, so maybe I can get away without buying a new one.

It's a repaint and actually has tiny bit under 180k miles. It's the same year and color as my current Miata so I just slapped my current historic tags on it.

Has cruise and power windows. Guessing it has a VLSD as well. Not sure what I'll do with it

You are at post 8, with several in the past few minutes saying absolutely nothing. Then you posted in the random picture thread without a picture. You sir are full of fail and if you dare post a FS add any time soon BanHammer will be coming out.

YUCK





Lul at how many studs game out with the nuts.


I didn't get a picture... but on the front of this thing is about 20lb piece of metal... THAT SERVES NO PURPOSE (other than holding the radiator fan... but really?).

And where did they put the distributor? UNDER THE INTAKE MANIFOLD???? In the WORST possible spot. Oil/water/sludge drips on it constantly.

Eww, what did that come out of? Looks pretty terrible indeed. I now bid you congratulation on 4 hours!

I hate cars with terrible design and no sense of ever needing the be repaired later.
