To my limited knowledge from the internet and a friend of mine, scuppernogs are the more desirable muscadine to have. But, I still don't know what mine are. Mine are thicker skinned(like most wild grapes probably) and get very dark. The darker muscadines and scuppernogs both do this and I haven't narrowed down what I have yet between the two. They're not bitter but not sweet either. Bland and slightly favoring the sweet side of the spectrum. I actually like them. Some have a harder concentration of seeds, some don't. The type of muscadine you're referring to is the worst one to have I think. My brothers girlfriend who is from Georgia talks about how bitter muscadines are.

Yeah I might take up wine making as a hobby since I got loads of these bastards on my property. If I were able to get ALL of them (40-70 ft high in pine trees) I would have a ridiculous amount. But for now my expectations are to get what I can from the ground to the height of an aluminum sliding extentsion ladder lol. Which is plenty. Need to figure something out for my walnuts too which are far easier since they fall to the ground.

Amazing driving.

"The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE managed a 7:16.04 lap time at the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife and dethroned the 2017 Camaro ZL1’s time of 7:29.6 with a 13 second faster time."

I just got back from a 35 day rotation at work and my grapes are huge. I probably picked them a little early and the areas with less sunlight were smaller. Put a pen down for size comparison since I didn't have a coin. I think they're muscadine supremes, the debatable best one you can have.

I'm glad I read the whole post and saw the picture, because after the first sentence I thought you were talking about something else.  :lolsign:

HUGH HEFNER
April 9, 1926 – September 27, 2017



Quite possibly greatest man who ever lived... has died. A truly sad day for proud hetero males throughout the world. When you were a kid, you saw your first boobies one of two ways: Either in picture of a topless african tribeswoman in National Geographic in the school libarary, or from the old late 70's issue of Playboy that your dad had stashed either in his bottom drawer or under the bed. Oh how feminine grooming standards have improved since then.

Hugh Hefner. On behalf of a grateful nation, I salute you.

Not really for this thread but I didn't know where else to post it. I saw this 2 weeks ago then forgot about it and saw it when I opened a text message with my buddy to plan a fishing trip. Never thought I'd be the main attraction in a world star video.

"Don't know what you're doing but I'm lovin it!"

Who wants to buy the Hitlermobile!?!

Hitler's butt imprints on the seats withstanding, it's still one of the purtiest damn cars ever built in my opinion.

"it boasted a 7.7-litre supercharged engine that could push the car to speeds in excess of 100mph"

Interesting. (470 in3)

I was surprised how long supercharging has been around as a technology. I seem to recall a "Jay Leno's Garage" episode awhile back, showcasing a car from 1918(?) that was supercharged, and ultra-high-performance for its day.

Jay Leno is to automobiles what Rick Neilson is to electric guitars. He has EVERY ONE you'd want in your collection, often multiples, and often shit you didn't even know you wanted yet. I hope to fuck that whenever he dies, his relatives don't auction off his collection and they do something really cool like open up a museum.

With the Year One factory right down the road from me, as well as Road Atlanta, Atlanta Dragway, Gresham Motorsports Park (aka Peach State Speedway), as well as the Panoz Factory around the corner from Year One, as well as the BBS wheel plant a stones throw from Road Atlanta, we have SHITLOADS of car freaks around here, which my roommate loves cuz he works at a restoration shop and always has plenty of shit to do. We hit up the car shows at the Year One plant in the summers, and we always see some cool shit there, but you never see the REALLY cool shit, because... probably because they didn't purchase enough/any insurance to cover it if the car bursts into flames at a red light so they don't dare bring it to the car show.

There used to be a classic/antique car museum inside Stone Mountain Park. Some truly one of a kind things that even Jay Leno couldn't get his hands on. Probably the most interesting car I still vividly remember seeing there was an old 1948 Tucker that had this odd 3 round headlight configuration and the center headlight would turn slightly to follow the steering wheel. I assume it was probably #1041 as listed on the the wiki page and bought at auction in 2009 for a bargain price of $765,000. Probably worth 1.5x that (or more) today.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucker_48

Fuckin' purty. One of the finest looking cars from the late 40's early 50's era, art-deco movie star luxury meets the futuristic 50's.

Check out the story and linked pics listed under #1023. OH MY GOODNESS.  :D

But alas, they closed the museum back in 08 or 09, and the owner auctioned off all the cars and countless unique antiques he had displayed in the museum. :'(
