    I kinda ran it through <a target="_blank" href=http://babelfish.altavista.com/>http://babelfish.altavista.com/</a> and it sounds like they called his crap. Hard to belive he linked to your pics on there sight. He also changed the pic from yours to an elcamino

I think we should send wes over there as an ambasador. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    one guy is saying, ' hey, look what i found whilest perusing the 'net...... the truck you claim is yours.....

    the other says that you are the previous owner.

    the other dudes are calling him out, asking how many times it's been sold, asking how the beach is in arizona or something like that, i think he claims he bought it here stateside during a visit with his family/////

    they love the bablefish translator too... it unfortunately is pretty useless, because it only translates words from english to german... it doesn't know how to read connotation, or even put them in the right order to read in german... in german, subject comes first, which is backwards from american... example:

    American: Check out my brand new truck!!
    German: TRUCK! brand new check it out.

    or something like that.

    or the classic EIN KLEINE BERELINER!!!

    one of the presidents shouted that to a crowd in Berlin, thinking it meant ` I am A BERLIN CITIZEN! in reality, it means I AM A JELLY DONUT!! ( he should have said Eine Kliene berelinen...

    Um - That was John F. Kennedy (1962 I think) - he didn't just "shout it to a crowd" - he was giving a speach. (It was in all the papers).
