You Haven’t Even Seen Peak David Tracy Yet: COTD

If there’s one thing our beloved David Tracy is especially well known for, it’s giving himself what seems like impossible challenges. Can he save the world’s most dilapidated $500 Jeep DJ-5D Dispatcher and then drive it to Moab? Will our hero cobble together a working Chrysler Valiant Ute in time to make it to the Deni Ute Muster? Can he get an old 250,000 diesel Chrysler Voyager to pass Germany’s strict TÜV? Somehow, someway, David always heroically wrenches his way out of any disaster. Now, he’s taking on two more projects: Building a beastly $350 off-road Jeep Grand Cherokee from an assemblage of parts in a mere three months and getting a $500 high-mileage Toyota Sienna fixed up and delivered to Jason.

Somehow, he’ll do it, because David is somehow a machine. Yet, we haven’t even seen his peak form. Óscar Morales Vivó wins COTD today for these frankly epic-sounding adventures that are only just slightly too unrealistic:

Vidframe Min Top
Vidframe Min Bottom

I feel like Mr. Tracy’s need to one-up himself with his extreme junker repair hijinks are going to end up in uncanny places.

“I have 90 minutes to repair this Bugatti Veyron that fell off a cliff, caught on fire and has been used as a cliffside nest by a flock of rabid seagulls for 10 years”

“Here’s my ultimate idiot plan to build a VW type 4 out of iron ore I mined myself”

“I have to drive this Jeep out of the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, the doors of the ship it sunk in are rusted shut and used as a nest by a swarm of rabid octopi”

I mean, come on, David wouldn’t work on a modern VAG product! That’s the unrealistic part. I also loved Dan Manwich’s plan to get humans on Mars. Move over, Elon:

David Tracy will be the first human on Mars if we can just get an abandoned manual Grand Cherokee there first.

Finally, we have a hilarious one-liner from Fuzzyweis about Jason’s observation that both hospital beds and cars have puddle lights:

Incontinence monitoring gives new meaning to ‘puddle lamps.’

Have a great weekend everyone!

I made the board! I think it was just luck of early posting that one was sitting there for us 🙂

How has David not been to Mars yet? It’s literally covered rust.

He may get the comic book, song or movie reference……maybe.

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see with rust in his eyes?
Will it drive at all,
Or if he starts it will it stall?

I must admit I did hear Ozzy singing in my head as I read that.
Has David heard of Black Sabbath?

I’m now imagining David Tracy facing increasingly rusty Jeeps, with more rust equaling a higher Super Saiyan state

I almost lost my gatorade at Dan Manwich’s comment. Perfect.

I’m going to say that winning COTD is as auspicious a start of the year as I could hope for.

May be worth as much as the prize money but it definitely helps deal with all the frustrations I’ve been subjected to lately (mostly life in an enshittified world, I’m doing ok overall).

Anyone else who remembers the almighty Type 4 is good with me.
