This milestone feels like a great moment to thank all the loyal OPC followers and commenters we've had over the last five years! Tony and I would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to share a link to this humble blog on your Facebook, favorite forums, or just tell a friend. If anyone can find a link to a Comuta-Car commercial, I would love to see it.

CONGRATULATIONS TONY AND BEN ON 3,000 WONDERFUL, FASCINATING, OFF-BEAT, WEIRD, BEAUTIFUL, DIVERSE, IDIOSYNCRATIC, STEADFASTLY AGAINST-THE-GRAIN, CHERISHED, CRANKY, CRUSTY, COOL BLOG-POSTS.

Your unique take on car culture, your focus on Survivors and Daily Drivers, small-run, forgotten trim packages, and the ephemera that owners add, in the way of bumper stickers, window decals and stuff they put on the dashboard is an inspiration. How you manage to track down model years on some of these oddballs just blows my mind. Don't know how you do it.

For myself I notice that over the last several years there have been many blogs I've enjoyed that have come and gone. It's great that you guys continue to be committed to your audience. Your blog is almost too cool for words.

So, kudos, kudos, kudos. May your blog live long and prosper!

Wow! You could take one of these, refit it with all the new driverless software from Google,
and have one unique and classy ride! If it were mine, I'd definately do it! What a huge thing
that would be for blind or other disabled people who cannot move freely about due to a lack
of public transit. The only thing it needs is a solar panel on the roof to keep the batteries
charged!

One hell of a 3000th post, love the Comuta-Cars. Congratulations, hard to believe I've been lurking this blog for 4 years now, and it's almost been 5 years since the first post.

Conrats! This little car is epic! There is one of these in the Lane Motor museum in Tennesee. How did you find it?

@captaingizmo: I would just get it to run, then leave it as it is!
