QBZ-95 or 97. Either will do. But an AR Pistol would be fine too.
Or pop the air bubbles in the packaging.... That is Chinese air coming out right at you.......
Like little breaths from overseas.
I often thought of that even with US packages with the bubble wrap or more so with those plastic bags full of air. What could someone with bad intent put it there I wonder.
Ahhh yes. Little breaths make sense as it would already be available and no special action necessary.
I'd like to think that tiny farts would be an international hit!!
Could become a cottage industry???
Reminds me of the time my younger brother hosed me good when I was a passenger in his little Fiat sports car many years ago. I know we drank a lot of beer when we were young after we moved out (or were kicked out) of the house. He must have eaten eggs and who knows what else when he let one rip that would have made a maggot gag. He was laughing hysterically while I was trying not to gag. I reached for the power window switch and he had the master controls and had it locked. Same with the door locks. Plus we were moving down the road so I couldn't jump out anyhow. Good times. NOT!
@beaterktm and I were on a cross country road trip from WA to FL, back in the day. We were broke and living cheap which meant sharing a tent. We'd been living off of Bologna , cheap beer and canned meats for the better part of the week by the time we got to the Grand Canyon. I had a midnight gas attack in our shitty 3 person tent. Woke up to Crawford sleeping with his outside of the tent and the zipper zipped down around his neck !
Don't want to go into too much detail, but when you combine two guys, a lot of German beer and German food in Munich, you get enough gas to clear an entire floor in a hotel even after the windows were open up day and night.....
Then there was the rest-area toilet moment on the Autobahn.....
Autobahn is the first place that I ever had to pay to take a dump!
No kidding! The one I gassed was free.... I'm sure that you have to pay now....
It was bad enough I made myself gag... Let alone the guy next to me who's one comment was ; 'Mein Gott'
I waited 5 mins before vacating the premises.....
I have never been to the autobahn. But after reading these two accounts of the stench and then then seeing the "Mein Gott", I almost thought I smelled something.
I'm going to go ahead and call bullshit on a 70s or 80s Fiat having functional power windows.
I had an '81 X-1/9-- all the rust of a VolksPorsche 914 with none of the power.
The 70's were particularly bad for European cars in the rust department.. You should have seen some of the French cars back then. They rolled out of the factory complete with a standard rust package..... VW/Audi/Porsche started to galvanize their cars as they were the worst from Germany...
That was the reason we drove Volvo's and SAAB's in those years.
I remember seeing a Saab when I was young that was smoking and found out it was supposed to. It was the old 3 cylinder 850cc 2 stroke engine in it. Now that would be a cool car to own.
In its basic form the DR works for me but this lockdown provided time to take care of a few projects: The conversion from tubed to tubeless tires is complete with my new Kendas installed. My Stebel horn is located behind the tiny front fairing. 5.3 gallon Acerbis tank added and using my Dremel tool I was able install the factory petcock. Heated grips added for my trips to Colorado. Inaccurate stock speedometer replaced with a Vapor. LED bulb in tail light is much brighter than stock. I think the next upgrade will be an LED headlight.
His worked. We were up north so maybe they worked better without the salt water corrosion etc. But he had the Fiat Spider, so even though I just now read about power window problems with them, his were working fine.
Even better was Lancia's ill-fated experiment of production cars in the late 70s/early 80s. They rusted so bad they had to recall every single one. So much as parking by an ocean for a few hours you'd find rust spots sticking through the paint. They knew how to make a rally car go fast, but didn't know how to produce one for mom to drive the kids to school in without a tetanus shot.
We had two Alfa Romeo's, a Guilia in the late 60's and a Guilietta in the early 80's.
Both were actually not bad in the rust dept., but my dad didn't keep either of them long enough to find out...
