1957 Chrysler 300C
———————————
Fast facts
Drivetrain: Hemi 494ci. the elephant breathes in through Mopar Performance aluminum heads and a Barry Grant 980-cfm carb. Handling all the power is a Torqueflite 727 automatic transmission connected to a Gear Vendors overdrive unit and a Currie-built Ford 9-inch rearend.
Chassis: The 18ft frame was in really good shape, so modifications were kept to upgrading what was necessary for maximum behind-the-wheel enjoyment. The stock torsion bar front suspension was rebuilt and reassembled with Wilwood binders and a GM 605 power box. Wilwood discs were added at the rear as well and are activated by a Corvette dual-master cylinder.
Wheels & Tires: 18×8 and 20×10 Intro Vista rims and Toyo tires (255/45ZR18 front & 295/45R20 rear).
Body & Paint: Chrysler did a really good job designing the ’57 300C, so the owner decided to leave the body completely stock and coat it in an House of Kolors Tangelo Orange under a Pearl White top.
Interior: Lexus 300 buckets, custom rear seats, door panels, consoles, and trunk. A Billet Specialties wheel tops a Flaming River tilt column, which sits in front of a handmade gauge pod. Tunes are transmitted via a Kenwood head unit feeding Kicker Audio amps and speakers.

But no matter how much of a fish-mutilating dick the giant otter may be, it’s still just a cute and furry mammal. It has to be wary of other predators that haunt the Amazon River – such as the local member of the alligator family tree, the caiman.

Oh, wait – it’s the other way around.

When a pair of giant otters see a caiman basking on the shore, they might start pawing at the reptile’s tail, apparently just for shits and giggles. Maybe the caiman takes the hint and pisses off, but more likely it will turn around and attack. The otters will dodge, then have a go at the tail again. And again. Until the caiman is too tired to fight back. Then they calmly eat the caiman alive. Starting with the damn tail.

If there are more otters around, they’ll skip the tail biting, gang tackle the caiman and start chomping away. A pack of giant otters can devour an entire caiman, bones and all, in 45 minutes.

Another delicacy on the giant otter menu is the anaconda, which you may remember as the largest damn snake on Earth.

THAT’S ALL FOLKS

The coyote awoke one morning to find that the roadrunner was gone.

He’d disappeared, beyond the asymptotic horizon which outlined their desert, that unreachable boundary between two nowheres. Together, as predator and prey, they’d followed the same highway westward for thousands of miles, always encroaching on that same horizon, yet finding no end to the repetition of sagebrush and sand. They’d grown accustomed to their mutual eternity over the years, and the unspoken laws that had defined it.

Then, as abruptly as it began, eternity ended.

In disbelief, the coyote climbed to the peak of the desert’s tallest mesa. There, he searched the corners of the world with his magnificent binoculars. Their barrels extended until they were longer than he was tall, yet he found no sign of the roadrunner within them- not even a suggestive cloud of dust. He half-expected to turn around and see his nemesis right there behind him, ready to warble his immortal cry, yet even there, he found only the wind.

After three days of searching, he accepted that he was alone.

Deluded and devoid of purpose, he wandered into the desert’s undrawn depths, far from the river of concrete that had previously defined his existence. It was there that, in the shadow of an ancient saguaro, he allowed himself to stop and think for the first time that he could remember. During the meditations that followed, his spirit sank through the sacred ink that had birthed him, and he was allowed to witness his own creation.

He saw his creator holding a book by Mark Twain, and in that book, he saw a description of his soul: “a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry.” He thought long on that hunger, and how it had ensorcelled the whole of his being, and how his longing for the roadrunner’s flesh had nearly driven him to madness. In doing so, he realized that he loved his hunger, and that up until that moment of revelation, the emptiness of stomach had carried him further than the blood in his heart ever had.

He saw the rules that had been laid out for him by his demiurgic animators- that all of his failures would be of his own making, that his nature would never allow him to end his pursuit, and that humiliation would be his only lasting wound. He wondered if those rules would still apply, if he chose to do nothing at all.

He learned about Sisyphus, and of his endless punishment by the gods. He wondered if Sisyphus knew that the stone he pushed uphill contained more of his identity than his body. He wondered if he was Sisyphus.

He thought about the desert’s emptiness, and the way its soil longed for rain.

He wondered if he was the desert.

He wondered if he was the roadrunner.

He wondered if he was anything at all.

All he knew for certain was that he was no longer hungry.


A wrong turn at Albuquerque can lead anyone into the undrawn desert.

ACME products are notorious breeding grounds for gremlins.

The devil of coyotes can grant his subjects the speed to capture roadrunners, but only at a grave cost.
