full rig

While sailing in the Mediterranean sea, in 1962, the American aircraft carrier USS Independence (CV-62) flashed the Italian Amerigo Vespucci with light signal asking «Who are you?», the full rigged ship answered «Training ship Amerigo Vespucci, Italian Navy». The US ship replied «You are the most beautiful ship in the world».

You know what’s a little fucked up but I want it anyway? I want a fic where Sam’s long time partner ends up being a complete asshole who cheated on him (their excuse was that ‘it was a moment of weakness’ but Sam calls bullshit then and there).
I want Sam to take the high road and say that person isn’t worth his energy or hatred, even though he REALLY wants to pop their tires.
And then I want Bucky, one of Sam’s best friends, to make that person’s life a living hell.
I’m talking the full nine yards.

He rigs their house with a series of traps, puts flour in their AC vents of their car on an important day, I want Bucky to convince that person’s future romantic prospects that the person is a cheater and that they suck in bed. And then I want Bucky to punch the guy right in the mouth.
But all without telling Sam.
And then I want it to end with Sam finding out and saying, “you did all that for me?”
And then Bucky will say, “no, I did that because he was an asshole to you and he deserved it.” And when Sam lifts an eyebrow Bucky will say, “okay, I did it for you, but the point remains. the dude sucks.”
“You’re stupid, but I appreciate it.”
And Bucky will shrug and say, “you deserve the best.”
And then they’ll kiss and get married and that person that cheated on Sam can CHOKE.

It’s so frustrating that the show slowed down to a crawl to make 3A “The Clexa Show” when 3B has evil possessed Raven, an ALIE zombie army, an oceanic oil rig full of pacifist refugees, Ark flashbacks, actual character development for Pike, crucial relationship growth for the delinquents, and a secret castle called The Citadel, and we now have to rush through it.

The Bolshikh brothers Prodrive M3s. I would consider these two cars the biggest barn find in the past 10 years. These Russian brothers raced Prodrive built M3s in Ireland in the early 90s. Both cars were found in an abandoned factory in Russia complete with a service rig full of spares. 

Once found both cars were sent back to Prodrive were they were restored to like new condition.One of the cars was a recce car & was upgraded to full gr.a spec during the restoration.
