Out of "morbid" curiousity, I Googled Gene Freeman. There was a man by that name from Savanah Georgia who recently died. The obit' doesn't indicate he was especially wealthy or a "Thing guy". Confused

They're all '73's. That can't be an accident.

Seeing more than one Thing in a one block radius is generally no accident, but 8 yellow '73's on one trailer?! Seriously?!

The lower one in front seems rather cramped. I suppose that they could lower the top and windshield, but...

I just hope there isn't a Movie or TV show in the making where a yellow Thing explodes from 10-different camera angles.

Why is the truck headed east bound in the west bound lane?

This is a very cool "tweeked" image. I downloaded the picture and enlarged it and the rear facing Thing had it windshield cut in half as well as its soft top and both still stood upright and normally shaped. This image screams of the artistry of Photoshop. Still a very cool piece of photo manipulation.

Hmmm..now I'm curious as to how Gene Freeman died. Was there foul play involved? I think there's only one suspect here - Dudbust Laughing

I think this is a group like the Shriners called the Yellow Dogs that has been traveling for the last couple years. I heard the cars are transported and the group meets up with the cars. Someone on this forum talked to the group a few years back. They are from the south. I have been trying to find them to bring their cars to Kubel Treffen KY but not much luck.

So what you're really saying is that because we have seen this picture we should all go out and get lotto tickets?
