Odessa's Iron Man

Posted March 09, 2010 12:01 AM by CarDomain

It's too old-school to be a Transformer. But this bizarre hulk has that 1950s sci-fi-comic-book thing going for it. It appears to include the complete front clips of at least three Cold War mobiles. Can anyone identify them

You have to humour our US cousins... they think London Birmingham etc are in the US.
They probably have a Sydney too...
They've prob' even built a bigger bridge and Opera house there

In the northern parts it does. I live 10 miles south of the oklahoma border. We have had several feet of snow. This is highly unusual. Generally, we get one good snow a year. It all usually melts off in a day or two. Anything south of Dallas rarely gets snow. Right now we are getting a lot of rain. Temperatures are in the 50 to 60F range.

Odessa TX (The entire state) recieved an unusual amount of snow this year. I was wondering, however, why the thing would be made of those types of cars. I have never seen an Eastern Bloc car in this part of the world.
