This is so strangely fascinating. This is modern archaeology, without a doubt.
Ride sharing idea: It’s called “Hopon” I pay a stranger through an app to hop on their back and carry me. Think of all the homeless we can give jobs to.
Thanks for the Talon love. I was NOT the Jalopnik winner. My car was the other tan Talon. Also, I had the bumper painted on my Talon about 15 years ago, recently it started to flake on the top, drives me crazy when I see it.
