DT 5th Birthday Wrapup

Wow, it has been a fivetastic week.  Fiveriffic.  Fivellisimo!  From cars with 5-cylinders to 5-doors to 5-owners to 5-finger discounts, the week has been exhilarating and esoteric. I just wish I'd thought of that 5-finger discount thing before the week started.  How about one more before we end this party -- how about a 5-window thing, this 1960 Suburban Airport Limo offered for $6,800 in Kieler, WI via craigslist (tip from Zach Z).

Just a quick recap -- we've seen:

I'd like to offer a huge thanks to KBZ for the DT 5.0 graphics, and for all of the DT writers who stepped up and taking on a chunk of this effort.  It has been a fabulous five years and I am looking forward to at least another fifty.

Now, please excuse me while I go and take a five hour nap.


  1. Great showing you guys! Here's to five more years!

  2. Happy Birthday to ALL!

    Hey, with initials like DT, how come no one asked WHAT's YOUR FAVORITE FIFTH???
