Our Image Hosting Is Down So Let’s Play A Game With The Photos We’ve Uploaded Over The Years

Something is afoot with our website right now, because we cannot upload images. Will this suck if it’s not fixed by the time I start writing my 2024 Ford F-150 Tremor review (embargo: tomorrow)? Absolutely. But I’m more worried about right now. We need to get you, dear readers, some content! So let’s play a game using the photos we’ve already uploaded. I’m going to type some random words into our image database, and then I’ll just post whatever car-related images pop up. Let’s see what kind of weird stuff is in here…

I’m just going to type in some random nouns and see what pops up. The top image of the Wienermobile you see above was a result of the image search: “Weiner.” Because I am a child.

Here’s the result of the search: “dog”:

Honda Element Dog Friendly Ad

Hot damn; that must be from Thomas’ story “Honda Once Made A Crossover Customized Specifically For Dog Owners.”

Let’s try “ham”:

Wyr Wart Ham Top

What the hell?

Oh yeah, that’s from Jason’s ridiculous “Automotive Would You Rather: Spark Plug Of Truth Or The Savior Sandwich Of Arizona.” What a weird place this is.

How about “butter”:

Hmm, apparently the filename for that photo is “Cs Lincolnbutterscotch.” That does look butterscotchy, doesn’t it?

The search “rust” revealed this topshot from a “Member Rides” post I did about my friend Doug’s Jeep that he bought in Germany:

Rust Freepjeep

The word “Gut” yielded this image of an RX-7’s….who knows what?

A little googling reveals that this image is from our article “Bose’s Solution For Big Bass Sound In The FD Mazda RX-7 Looked Disturbingly Like Your Guts.”

Hell, I barely remember that article. Wow this is amazing:

I typed in the word “stink,” and I’ll be honest, I have no clue what it’s all about other than what appears to be a Corvaire:

Stinklines

Can anyone figure out which article that’s from? I thought for sure it’d be from “Here’s Why The Chevrolet Corvair Is The Best Cheap Classic Car Right Now,” but nope.

Typing in the word “Jerk” yielded this random guy whom I’m sure nobody can recognize:

What about “spaghetti”? Here’s what we got:

Showerspaghetti1 There's A Bowl Of Spaghetti Under This Ev ! Porsche Taycan Hoist Review 5 30 Screenshot

That’s pretty great. There’s Shower Spaghetti and there are a bunch of cooling hoses that look like spaghetti.

Here’s what I get when I type in “Torch”:

Aa Torch Painkillers

And here what I get when I type in “DT”:

Tfts Dtescort

Oh that’s right! That’s from “I Handed Out My Business Card At Pebble Beach And Now I’m Getting Texts From People Who Think I’m A Prostitute: Tales From The Slack.” Man, whoever did that is a JERK! Maybe it was that random unrecognizable guy I showed before wearing all white.

Anyway, hopefully soon we’ll be able to upload new images. Until then, read our archives! Follow our Instagram! Send us tips of cool stories you want us to dig into! (tips@theautopian.com).

Anyway, uh, feel free to hop into the comments and suggest some other search terms. I’m happy to update this article, assuming those yield (appropriate) images.

“Wiener”, so called the city of Vienna, after the original German spelling “Wien”. A “Weiner” would be a “cryer”.

Please enlighten,
wouldn’t the sausage be a “Wiener”, because of it’s origin in Wien (Vienna)?
In my book a Weiner is a wine merchant in Yiddish.

only if it comes from that region, otherwise it’s just sparkling sausage.

A “Weiner” could also by read as a “cryer” (the German word “weinen” means “to cry”).

I’m sure I could’ve used Google, but I have neurodiversity to thank instead (real useful skill, remembering 2 year old articles about how Ford tried to convince us the Falcon is better than the Corvair).

I totally remember that RX7 article because as an audio nut that thing is cool as hell, even if it probably sounds like crap by today’s standards.

I suffer from audiophillia too and I have a few suggestions that you may have already ‘heard’. You did not ask for any suggestions, but audiophillia is an evangelical disease after all. I’m sure you understand.

Get yourself the biggest single ended triode you can find. Preferably an 845 or 805, but a 300B will do too. I was very skeptical, but to make a point, my Byston rig now gathers dust. SETs are that amazing.Try some pure silver speaker wires. They take a looonnnnggg time to burn in, but once they do, magic happens. Seriously, absolute magic.If you don’t already have good Sub or two, definitely consider adding. I love REL Strata IIIs, but those are getting old. Subs really help with SETs because they add back the little bit of punch you lose with SETs. If you haven’t heard one, SETs don’t suffer from transistor compression and therefore sound louder in the mids and highs which messes with your mind a bit until you balance it with slightly more bass from a Sub.Gustard X26 Pro DAC is without question the best value in the world. I had no idea ESS chips could sound so good, but they do in this device. The nearest to analog I’ve ever heard. Make 44.1 sound like 192 every time.

It’s a progressive disease with no known cure. Partial hearing loss doesn’t even help.

Not sure if trolling but different cables in car audio length don’t have any effect on sound reproduction and they most definitely do not “burn in.”

Clearly you know what you are talking about and I don’t. I must be imagining the things I’ve experienced personally. My senses also must have been mistaken. Sorry to troll you and your golden ear with my foolishness.

I believe that you believe they sound different. I know they don’t, because they can’t.

Do you mean car depreciation? Or boating? High end stereo equipment actually holds value pretty well and I do so enjoy cranking tunes every night. It’s really the only time I feel at peace these days. Absolutely worth every penny.

Maybe your magic ears can discern the difference between a signal carried by $$$ solid silver wiring vs 0.$ on copper (to say nothing of whether it’s even an improvement) but I doubt 99.999999999999999999999% of the rest of humanity can, especially anyone over the age of 12 and whom hasn’t spent $$,$$$ on the rest of the equipment and a dedicated sound room.

And you’d be wrong. I don’t even know why you’re commenting. If you don’t get it, you don’t get it. I don’t have magic ears and my solid silver cables didn’t cost much because I made them.

Also, simple question, what metal has the lowest resistance?

If you want to start a flame war, I’ll do it. Your comments are as insulting as someone who doesn’t get the love of cars.

So, sausages, spaghetti, squiggly ham, stuff inside cars that looks like squiggly stuff, a prim farting lady, Steve Martin, googly eyes and a rusty jeep?

Steve Martin in the Jerk was awesome.

I also saw the Weiner Mobile driving away from a grocery store, it was awesome.

You are not a true child until you’ve done a search for “butt”. I mean, you did “butter”. IT WAS RIGHT THERE!

Butt, Weiner, may leave to the picture of what people thought DT was.

Is MH still in LA? Do another live blog range test of the leaf, but more high stakes, like it’s his only ride to the airport.

So there might be a business opportunity for someone who could develop a reliable image hosting service?
