Answer:  PICK UP TRUCKS

(A great stinky pun!  I really don’t remember the rollout of the Ford F-150, back in 1975.  I was just 18, and more into cars . . . and girls, of course.  Was it really that big a sensation?  Some of my friends drove Ford Broncos and Chevy Blazers, but they’re really more SUVs than trucks.  Although, the early SUVs were built on truck chassis.  Funny how the singular and plural of “chassis” is spelled the same!

All of today’s clue words would make for terrible pickup lines!  Yep, your intended would say:  I’ve heard that one a million times!  So, no points for originality there.  But all of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  So, I guess it all balances out.  They all came to me right away though.  The answer letter layout was a twisted twelve letter jumble.  I was a little slow on the pickup, as I first thought the last word was PICKUP.  But I quickly saw my mistake, and figured out the pun.

Fine cartoon of guys in a new car dealership, in 1975.  In a few years’ time this very truck might end up in Uncle Rave’s Used Car lot!  And, you know yer Uncle will give you a good deal on it!  LOL!  Hey!  Whatever happened to Cinco de Mayo???  In years past the media has openly celebrated it, but I haven’t heard boo today!  A whole lot of dumb May the Fourth jokes yesterday.  Even Google, who likes to celebrate every oddball holiday/birthday/anniversary, has ignored it this year.  Is there some kind of Latinx immigrant backlash going on, or what?  Well, Happy Cinco de Mayo to all those who celebrate the day, from yer Uncle Rave!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
