It seems Spambots really like Opels

More specifically it seems Spambots really like 1960 Opel Reckords.

Although no one has posted anything new here recently due to it being the off season I still occasionally check in here and look at the stats.

Now the post that has always had the most views has always been the post on the leaf blower forced induction, because obviously that is a great idea.  The one that typically has been the second most viewed was the Pick n Pull  picture pages edition  partially because everyone loves Junk yard pictures but I think mainly because of this picture. 

I think alot of people assume this is one might be one from an actual Junk Yard site not just some idiot who took to put on a blog about a Cutlass Ciera race car.

However that has now gone down to third being replaced by a post about an Opel Reckord found on eBay back before we bought the Olds.  The auction has long been erased off ebay but that does seem to deter the spam bots which have viewed the page 100s of times since then and even left over a dozen comments.

Now its understandable cause a 60 Reckord is quite a looker
Sadly the auction when I stopped watching it was over $4000 and hadn't hit the reserve yet meaning it wasn't going to sell for Lemons money

So it sounds like if anyone can ever find one to run they will get lots of fans, sure they will be annoying programs that just leave annoying messages trying to send you to sites that will steal your identy, but fans are fans right?
