The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    THE OUTLIER

    Have you felt like a Cadillac in a world of old trucks?
    Or a graceful white swan on a pond full of ducks

    Sometimes it’s tough to be the best in class
    In a place where fine art is a wall-mounted Bass

    You’re out-of-place like pleated slacks
    In a land where jeans reveal butt cracks

    You’re lost in the status quo my friend
    Where viewpoints are rigid and rarely bend

    You’re a black tuxedo and you’ve got the blues
    You’re stuck in a closet filled with brown shoes

    Your health conscious views and vegan diet
    Aren’t welcome here because they just don’t buy it

    The landscape is wide but the minds are narrow
    In this land of hawks you’re a lonely sparrow

    New ideas can be hard to swallow
    When old school rules are the ones they follow

    Innovation can leave you high and dry
    Big ideas that the masses won’t try

    Without the outliers we’d all drive a Ford
    And I for one would be kind of board

    So raise the bar in whatever you do
    When others around you haven’t a clue

    Embrace new ideas and you will be stronger
    Keep your brain working and you will live longer

    Be like this Cadillac, best in class
    Don’t look in the mirror, just step on the gas

    I feel more like a Rat Rod in a World of Rats – Rode Hard – Put Away Wet! – Ha! The mid-fifties Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible is my second fave ride in the whole wide world FlyRod – Fully Restored they are just a bit pricey for my taste at this juncture – Ha! – I used juncture in a sentence – we had a bet here at the clubhouse that I couldn’t use juncture in a sentence and now I’ve used juncture four times in this missive – Double Plus ++ Ha! This is such a nice photo of it as well ~:0) VivaChas!
