heck Abe theodore/teddy gave them a clue, i remember at a farm auction in the early 70's there was an old truck for bid pretty rough shape no one bid on it, i remember the auctioneer saying dont call us if you change your mind call BR549, the crowd cracked up. this sorta reminds me of when the musical group the Who was playing on the radio and someone would say Who sings that song. I hope that brought a good memory for someone !

Everyone of my nieces and nephews would get trapped into a version of who's on first when a Who song came on the radio.At times they would get mad when they didn't figure it out!

Two of my fraternity brothers used to have a stand-up routine using the aforementioned groups, The Who, Guess Who, and they added Yes. Hilarious!

You guys are killing me! I had to resort to googling BR549 to figure it out. I was trying to figure out how JR Ewing's phone # had somehow become famous... I did like that guy with banjo on that show.

Here's a fun one that I came across while looking for new and adventurous scuba diving sites. This would be a fun visit at Lake Okoboji in Iowa. I enjoy diving wrecks...though this would be my first non-maritime vessel!

The story: Among the wrecks on the bottom of West Lake Okoboji are two significant dive sites—one placed on the bottom, the other arrived by accident.

Divers knew the story of the accident. In 1948, a 1935 Ford truck used in ice harvesting, slipped into the water and sank into Smith’s Bay. Searchers couldn’t find the truck and assumed it had rusted away until Debbie Skarin of Spirit Lake stumbled across it in 2000. She too was unable to relocate the truck. Summer resident, Jim Koenig of Charles City diligently searched the area for two seasons before finding and fixing its position on May 30, 2001. It rests in the middle of the bay on a hard sand bottom facing west-northwest in 20 feet of water.

That,s not an odd ball truck. This truck should be in the Working Trucks thread! It was working when last seen above water and is working now growing sea weed or in this case lake weed!
