On January 27 1929 a convoy consisting of five Bugatti started their journey through the Sahara

September 20th, 2017 by admin

The cars are built as pick-ups and with 800 kilograms of goods on them they are hopelessly overloaded. Amongst other things, each car carries 260 litres of benzin, 20 litres of oil and 20 litres of water. About half of the load is the personal luggage of the travelers and most of the participants have even planned to carry out hunting excursions on the southern edge of the Sahara – and they do not want to do that without a certain level of personal comfort. One of the participants, Lieutenant Loiseau, warns about the too heavy load even before they start the journey: He intends to do a record-trip from Paris to Cite d’Ivoire and back…

Some of the participants of this journey do not believe that they can leave some of their luggage back they buy a truck to join them instead!

Sam Pierce, sponsor for Burt Munro’s Indian Special, and Indian Motorcycle specialist in San Gabriel

September 20th, 2017 by admin

When the Depression hit, Sammy turned to his motorcycle for a living, performing stunts and racing at county fairs. Along the way he acquired an expertise for sheet metal, designing and fabricating custom cars. But bikes were his passion, and in 1945, after a stint in the Navy during World War II, he swung a deal to become the California distributor for Norton.

Pierce Indian was on the corner of Fairview and San Gabriel avenues, next to that was Pierce’s home, where Munro lived from at least 1965-67.

Way back in their youth, Sam Pierce and Rollie Free worked for the same Indian dealership agent in Kansas City

Pierce combed the U.S. for parts. He bought out the stocks of numerous dealers who once sold and serviced the great red machines.

Old horse wagon exposed after Detroit lake had a record low water level in Oregon in 2015 and ‘16

September 18th, 2017 by admin

Back in 1953, the 200 residents of the tiny town of Old Detroit deserted their homes after Congress approved a nearby dam, which, when finished, would flood the area to create the reservoir now known as the Detroit Lake.

But water levels at Detroit Lake were 45 feet lower than normal in 2015, approximately 143 feet below capacity, so low that people had to pull their boats out of the local marina.

In 2015, a historic drought brought the reservoir to its lowest summertime level in history, 1,511 feet in early summer and as low as 1,425 feet by autumn.

But Marion County Deputy Dave Zahn spotted old fashion wagon wheels that had been buried in the silt and mud.

“In late October when the lake was at its lowest I took the opportunity to walk the river line to see what’s out there, more of a treasure hunt,” Zahn says.

That is when he spotted the classic timepiece.

“We noticed it was a wagon, a horse drawn wagon. It had a plate on it out of Ohio.”

“That wagon was built for the country that you’re in,” said David Sneed, owner of the Wheels that Won the West collection. “With those extra spokes, the metal encased hubs, and the ‘Oregon brake,’ it’s built to engage rough terrain.”

The wagon was made by the Milburn Wagon Company in Toledo, Ohio, sometime around the turn of the last century. Milburn was one of the nation’s biggest manufacturers: in 1882, it was producing 600 wagons per week, the majority farm wagons, Sneed said.

This one could’ve been built as late as the early 1900s, but certainly not before the 1890s, he said. Becuase the hubs on the 16-spoke wheels – themselves much ballyhooed by Milburn for “having 12 more spokes than any on the market” – were patented by James Sarven in 1857 but not used on Milburn wagons until the 1890s, Sneed said

The surprisingly well-preserved wagon was seen by a handful of people in October, lying in the exposed mud of the old townsite when the lake drained to its lowest level in 46 years. Dave Zahn, a marine deputy for Marion County, photographed it right before rainstorms came and raised the reservoir’s level.

In a matter of days, the wagon was gone again, buried under many feet of water. Its appearance had been so brief that U.S. Forest Service archaeologist Cara Kelly barely had time to document its existence and no time to plan for preserving or removing it.

“Removing it would be very costly, and it would be almost impossible without ruining it,” Kelly said. “It was challenging just trying to get to it because it’s so buried. The mud around it was like soup; I couldn’t get to within 20 feet of it.”

While Zahn first spotted the wagon on October 29, he and Kelly decided to keep its location a secret, so as not to attract potential looters and vandals. According to a metal plate attached to the wagon as seen in some of Zahn’s photographs, the wagon was made in 1875 by the Milburn Wagon Company of Toledo, Ohio, which was one of the country’s largest manufacturers of wagons at the time. As Brooks reports, the lake bottom’s low oxygen levels almost perfectly preserved the wagon – ironically, its brief stint on land probably damaged it more than all the decades it spent underwater.

During Hurricane Harvey, the flooding was so bad, there was a small craft advisory on the interstate

Take a moment to appreciate that the storm winds, currents, and new made rivers etc all are so powerful, they moved the linked Jersey Barriers. They weigh 4700 pounds a piece…. and that’s why it’s not too safe to try and drive through flooded areas with moving water. It can easily move your car or truck and put you in a bad situation… and really, what’s your insurance company going to say when they see your car on the news, as you drive through the flood?

11 people were injured and hospitalized as idiot in a Porsche forgets just why people in Mustangs are dumbasses when leaving a Cars and Coffee….. and duplicates the jackass attempt at showing off. Learn how to do a burnout you idiots!

You can see on the road that several tires were smoked leaving the car show… and that this dumbass was richer than he was talented at driving.

His insurance company? Never ever going to give him a policy again

The incident happened about 11 a.m. Saturday as two events took place at the Boise Spectrum Cars and Coffee weekly Saturday meet

Justin King said he heard the crash and immediately rushed to the scene. “You could hear the screaming,” he told the AP. “There were people’s shoes that went flying. There was at least one youngster, less than 10, he was kind of unconscious.”

King said 400 or 500 vehicles showed up for the car show and participants were peeling out for crowds who lined up outside the event to watch. “People like to show off when they leave these events,” he said.

1 of 1 Plum Crazy Hemi Coronet, 4 spd, Super Track Pack, in Canada finally recovered and restored, and of course, now up for sale on Ebay. Currently bid to 90k, 2 days left, it’s going to be a no sale never getting close to reserve

September 17th, 2017 by admin

Among a mere 14 hemi Coronets constructed that year, this former salvage yard denizen was found
behind the garage of a salvage dealer’s parents’ house in late 1991 in Manitoba, Canada when it was still a basket case project, it’s the only example built for Canadian export

One last sold for 156k in 2016, and the owner of this is hoping to win the lotto, because the car was recently for sale at the Mopar Nationals with a price tag of around $230,000 USD.

only 14 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T Hemi came out of the factory that year and only 4 were 4-speed.
