Meanwhile, back at the Impound Lot where it seems that, “Revenge is a dish best served Cold” – is a quote that Bunz has never heard…
“This is the end, beautiful friend,
This is the end, my only friend, the end.
Of our elaborate plans the end,
Of everything that stands the end,
No safety or surprise the end,
I’ll never look into your eyes again.”
Well, at least the thieves left them a couple of perfectly good cinderblocks…
And since, as Katz points out, “none of that stuff was working anyway,” particularly after that last descent in free fall, maybe they’ll actually come out ahead on the deal…
(Yeah, yeah, I know, nobody better try to cheer Bunz up when she’s in Revenge Mode…)
She’s no fun when she’s in Revenge Mode.
You wouldn’t like her when she’s in Revenge Mode.
Is she NEVER out of revenge mode? Reminds me of a line from a couple of E.E. “Doc” Smith’s novels where a character says that somebody is the most even-tempered person around. Mad all the time!
Admiral Ernest King’s daughter said that of her father during WWII – her dad was the most even tempered man she knew, always in a rage.
(today’s trivia brought to you by your local Popo impound yard)
The sorry state of the shell of her scout craft doesn’t rule out the possibility of a back engineering attempt. Thieves might for example strip a high end type car. But that doesn’t rule out that those that receive the high end parts don’t know how to craft together even something more high end as a product. If there is a market, then someone might make the attempt. Note that the theft was quite obviously by consignment as other quite obviously interesting rides weren’t even touched.
And the only suspect so far is Batguy. He has a noted history of making nearly impossible vehicles derived sometimes from war machines. That is in fact what he likes to do (or did before Bunz and Katz tore into his life). He perhaps left the shell behind, both as a clue (to B&K so they know what hit them), and because he likes to design something inspired by his iconic bat symbolism — rather than what he thinks of as their junk. And to rub it in with Katz remark about most things not working anyway — he will strive to see that they most definitely DO now work.
B’OK, your ability to build the most unlikely plot line castles-in-the-sky is unparalleled… not to mention entertaining as all get out. Batguy? That pathetic loser? Really?
Bah, humbug! The Air Force black projects guys have OBVIOUSLY already been there and taken all the “good” stuff off to Area 51. They left the shell because they already have plenty of examples of UFO metallurgy on hand from other crash sites. The engine was slag so they left it. As for all the other wonder cars on the lot – meh! Where do you think their tech came from in the first place eh?
Serve and volly. (Humor alert! Nothing here to be taken seriously.)
The beer cans and bottles left under the hull, plus the jerry-rigged and dangerous props to hold it up while the vandals worked, would seem to indicate that this damage was done by ordinary meth-heads looking for any negotiable metal they could easily pry loose and carry away to peddle to metal salvage yards… note the missing bits on the cars in the background, and the missing door and window on the cop shack. Since such scavengers are known to rip safety rails off bridges, remove hinges and knobs from cabinetry and smash bronze statues to pieces, seems likely any complex mechanism, working or not, would be pretty much unidentifiable when it left their hands…
Ha. That’s what you think. Those MIBs are sneaky.
Speaking of TV & Movie vehicles – none seem visible on this page or the next (jus’ take my word on that)… On page 156 there were 4, though Nellybelle and the Hannibal Twin Eight are pretty much obscured behind B&K and the fence… While on page 157 there are also 4, though possibly not the ones you might suppose…
