nice matched woody and boat

How about that, a boat and it’s factory matching trailer. I dig that. I’ve never heard of Kelson Boats before though

you know I love cool old outboards and original vintage touches like the sales and service stickers, right? It’s rare to see them on bikes, motorcycles, scooters etc, but those are the only things I’ve seen these type of stickers on

Thanks to Larry and Burkey for the reality check.

You guys know I often need one, right? Feel free to keep my mind open to the reality that I can’t remember nothing, know very little, and haven’t seen half of everything yet

probably the only Z16 (396 SS) 1965 Chevelle still with it’s original owner, and he hasn’t driven it since 1971

April 28th, 2017 by admin

Gottlob’s Chevelle was driven until 1971 and parked with 68k miles and is all original. “I built the building where it’s currently parked in 1974,” says Gottlob. “The car has been in its current location since 1974 and never moved.”

Gottlob set the world quarter-mile speed record in Alton, Illinois in a 1959 Corvette with a 283 – 290 hp fuellie at 12.01 seconds and 112 mph. The new record thrashed the previous record by more than 2 seconds, catching the attention of the CEO of Chevrolet and Vince Piggins who was Chevy’s Manager of Product Performance

After agreeing to reveal his secret enhancements to the 1959 Corvette, they gave him a 409 engine for research and development in exchange for the experimentation data. They also used his enhancements to the 283 engine in the 1959 Corvette as a baseline blueprint for the 1961 283 – 315 hp engine.

He was drafted for the Vietnam war, but kept in touch with Piggins and Cole, and they got him in on the best cars with limited runs being made, like the Z16 Chevelle (200 made) and the very 1st 1965 Corvette 396 made.

He bought the ‘65 Vette, but then without seeing yet, traded it up for the Chevelle because of it’s limited production.

Also they hooked him up with on a 1 of 20 1967 Corvette L88 427, which he bought and raced in the 24 hours of Daytona taking first place in his class.

Bought as an investment, it only has 6 miles on it, and is still covered in cosmoline, and it’s one of only 51 964 Carrera RSRs ever built. It just hasn’t moved since 1993

April 28th, 2017 by admin

The 964 Carrera RSR combined the 911 Turbo’s wide body with a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated flat-six that pumps out an impressive 350 horsepower. Other RSRs went on to earn class wins at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring while this silver example languished unused.

It’s going to be aucitoned in the end of may, and they expect about 3 million dollars

Dec. 10, 1950: Mr. and Mrs. Smith in front of their Sun Valley streetcar home. Retired cars that formerly operated on the Watts line, all-electric and air-conditioned.

When the Pacific Electric Red Car line was torn out in Los Angeles, a man named Smith bought about eight of the old trolleys and brought them up to a large parcel that he owned in the northern San Fernando Valley.

He strung them together with short corridors between each car, using one as a kitchen, one as a family room, several as bedrooms etc. He and his wife raised a family there. When he retired, or died, in the 70s, the property was sold and the streetcars were demolished.
