    poor bob. poor stain. :(
    sierra and I were once pulled over with guns drawn and all the yelling, etc in HB. I guess my mom’s 1966 VW bug was similar to one used for the armed robbery of a jewelry store? uh, can we say “bad idea getaway car?”

      LOL, a 1966 Beetle had a the new 1300 engine (really 1285cc) which boosted power that year to 50 horsepower! Not the best choice of get-away cars?!

        well, maybe theirs did, but I’m pretty sure ours did not. We were a revolving door of VWs in our family and we used to just stick any old engine any old place. HA!

          Plus after some hard miles number 3 cylinder overheated since the exhaust manifold was routed too close, so it lost some hp eventually anyway! My older brothers had an old 1959 beetle when they first had their licence, my job was wiping the windshield in bad weather, I was the 10 year old defroster! LOL

    OMG, how insane! To deduce that a guy on a bike towing a dog was making a bank heist get-away?! That would have made a great video!

    I once saw CM Police questioning a guy in the park. They suspected him of having committed a nearby robbery. They asked him to stand, and he stood up…and up…and up. The cops just craned their necks to look at him and said, “How tall are you?!” Seven foot was the answer. The cops both started cracking up, and told the guy, “You know, I think that if the perp had been seven feet tall, that might have been mentioned.”

    I can’t believe they went so far as to send Bob sprawling at gunpoint. I mean, stain barks on the back of that trailer like a whoopin’ fire alarm: not exactly a stealthy get away vehicle.
