Thanks for clearing up the confusion. I was trying to understand the reference to an Inuit overgarment. A pull over parka is an anorak.

Gearheart, you are correct. That was the original meaning - which spawned the urban-slang version.

From wiki: In 1984 the Observer newspaper used the term as an alternative term for the prototype group interested in detailed trivia, the trainspotters,[1][2] as members of this group often wore unfashionable but warm coats called anoraks when standing for hours on station platforms or along railway tracks, noting down details of passing trains.

The first use of the phrase to describe an obsessive fan has also been credited to the radio presenter Andy Archer, who used the term in the early 1970s for fans of offshore radio, who would charter boats to come out to sea to visit the radio ship.

Or tires...trust me. I just bought new tires. I was almost in tears trying to find tires that haven't been torn to pieces on here. Michelin's weren't an option for me up here either.

The axle choice was easy for me I'm restoring to original so I went with what was originally used :-)

Oh yeah?

Judging from the replies and viewer count (which must be at least 10X more than is displayed) an "error" can be very beneficial for a small business. If they had to pay for this kind of market exposure, it would cost them thousands.

If you are making signs to earn a little extra income, I'd hold onto the day job.

It all in interpretation. I remember the "I (heart image) Virginia" signs and no one wrote about how grammatically incorrect it was to write "I Virginia". Just substitute the word Airstream for the image, or for you drill-down technically correct types "International," and just enjoy the beautiful sign for what it is - a graceful invitation to stop by and say hello to those met on the road.

Well played!

Reading this thread, 1) I'd be scared 2) for fear of making a grammar error and being eaten alive.

(Not as effective....oh well...)

This thread: Wow.

The signs, though, look great! Whenever we visit Knoebels in Elysburg, PA, I say we should get them to do a sign for us, but theirs aren't as intricate as some of the pictures posted in this thread.
