Not a Wrapper

While the concept might have sounded great late at night, it could have been the beer.

Unusual pairing of phrase and image.

What’s the real message? You decide.

Is that Moe, Larry and Curly? (Maybe updated images to appeal to a tougher market?)

Is the driver taking sides in Game of Thrones? (Winter is coming. Can White Walkers be far behind?)

Possibly a “what do you get the avid trucker who has everything” gift. (Won’t end up on a garage sale table. That’s for sure.)

You do think there’s a human driver in there and it’s not an Uber headless car trial? (Maybe we’ll just give that one plenty of room and slide off the next exit…)

Another mystery on a roll.

    Grateful Dead crossed with low riders? It looks perfect to me for a long, strange trip.

      Now there’s a real possibility
      Shadows of that movie “Christine” seem to be lurking too. Dark windows do get all sorts of ideas rolling. (They are probably writing horror movie scripts as we speak…)
      Thanks for riding along

    Carry on, old friend…

    I remember “Christine.” You certainly never know who’s driving a driver-less car…and soon they’ll be everywhere. 🙂

      Driverless cars will certainly be interesting if their current antics keep going. Wonder if there will be special laws for protecting the vehicles against vandals throwing bricks at them …poor little voiceless robotic cars that everyone distrusts – road rage victims themselves…although not quite defenseless. Oh, the sci fi writers are busy with all the potential.
      Thanks for wrapping up a comment to park in thei space

    I hope there is a real driver inside…and I hope it is not an uber car booked for a “last minute” trip ;o)

      OMG. You are so astute. Dickens’ Scrooge inside? Thanks for the wintery chills and thrills. (All paws here are nudging a bit of warming cheer your way)

    I’m reminded of that “all is vanity” drawing by Charles Allan Gilbert. Those skulls on the truck kind of look like the image in the mirror in that drawing. Most creepy.

      Creepy indeed. Wish this was an Art Car, instead of a watch-it car. Thanks for driving a comment this way.
