unusual looking R/T, but it appears to be photo Modelo Gatuna, circa. 1970 by Tito Caula, one of the most important photojournalists in Venezuela

odd hub caps, no trunk stripe, and a flat hood? Plus the front license plate…. weird.

http://www.overdrive.fi/forum/threads/vanhoja-valokuvia-ameriikan-raitilta.267070/page-943#post-3240820

photographer Tito Caula (Argentina, 1926-1978), who was part of the Urban Photography Foundation of Venezuela, whose photographs were of a landscape that was of a Venezuela that built itself after the dictatorship. They become moving witnesses of a society, of its time and its development

Caula settled in Caracas as an advertising photographer and documentary filmmaker from 1960, when he had to emigrate due to the difficult political and social situation in Argentina at the time.

After moving to Venezuela he bought a Graflex camera, worked up a photography laboratory in his house, became friends with Leo Matiz, managed his studio in Caracas, collaborated as a photojournalist in the magazine Élite, and won an award from United Press International for his photo of the Betancourt-Frondizi hug in 1961.

He also took pictures of the differences in the country. He went into the student protests, in the life inside the hospitals, et cetera. Its thematic axis was Caracas and it is interesting that, by then, Tito Caula managed to capture that cosmopolitan, plural, diverse and tolerant city. A Caracas that probably is no longer there but from which contemporary photographers have registered thanks to Caula. Recall that the oil boom of the seventies changed Venezuela.

Tito Caula combines technical skill and perceptive acuity, capturing significant and sometimes ironic aspects of the characters, events and places to which they gave their attention ” Photo Ernesto Ernesto Sábato, 1970

Alan Page, Vikings defensive tackle in the 1st AFL/NFL draft in 67 picked by the GM from the hosptial, Hall of Famer and key to the 1969 Viking superbowl win… was drag racing in the summer of 71, and went on to be an associate state supreme court judge in Minnesota

February 18th, 2018 by admin

The first NFL-AFL combined draft was held March 14-15, 1967, at the Gotham Hotel in New York. While Vikings equipment manager Jim “Stubby” Eason manned a phone there, general manager Jim Finks was back in the Twin Cities with coach Bud Grant and scout Jerry Reichow.

Because Finks had just undergone surgery to remove his gallbladder, Minnesota’s modest draft materials were transported from team headquarters.

“(Finks) was lucid and everything, but they wouldn’t release him from the hospital, so we drafted from the hospital,”

ESPN.com, using metrics from Pro Football Reference, earlier this month ranked Minnesota’s 1967 draft the best in team history.

“That draft was a big step in the right direction for us,” said Page, a member of the Vikings’ “Purple People Eaters,” a defensive line adept at sacking or hurrying the quarterback who played for the Vikings from 1967-78, made six Pro Bowls and was the NFL MVP in 1971.

Page played in 218 consecutive games without an absence

Long before Page’s football career came to a close, he was laying the groundwork for his future role as a justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court. While still playing for the Vikings, Page attended the University of Minnesota Law School, from which he received a Juris Doctor in 1978. After graduating, he worked at the Minneapolis law firm Lindquist and Vennum from 1979 to 1984 outside the football season. Page was appointed Special Assistant Attorney General in 1985, and soon thereafter promoted to Assistant Attorney General.

In 1992 Page was elected to an open seat as an Associate Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, becoming the first African-American to serve on that court. He was reelected in 1998 (becoming the biggest vote-getter in Minnesota history), again in 2004, and for a final time in 2010

In the 1st round the Vikings took Jones, who went on to be a chiropractor in LA, Washington, who played for the Vikings from 1967-72 made Pro Bowls in 1969 and 1970 and then had a career with 3M in hr, and Page.
Don Schula scouted Jones and Bubba Smith at the same time, and picked Smith, leaving Jones for the Vikings.

Great Northwest Log Haul 1988

February 17th, 2018 by admin

In a sign of solidarity by loggers, more than 300 logging trucks rolled into Darby, Mont., in May 1988 to deliver about 1 million board feet of logs. Beginning in the late 1980s, a series of harassing legal actions against the Forest Service by environmental groups forced the Service to cancel its sales of timber, causing the nearly complete collapse of the industry. One by one, mills closed their doors.

A bunch of logging companies and sawmills were donating these, and the logging trucks were on their way to donate all the logs to keep Darby Lumber running.

The truck count into Darby was 303. Organizers expected about 220 logging trucks would take part in the Great Northwest Log Haul when it started rolling out of Libby headed for the wood-strapped Darby Lumber Co. The convoy stretched for 15 miles. It provided enough logs to keep the mill running about three weeks.

Organizers of the Great Northwest Log Haul claimed the Darby mill was shut down because of excessive environmentalist challenges to Forest Service timber sales.

Hoyt Axton was the entertainment that night. Darby Lumber paid for the logs, the logs were whatever loads anyone could come up with. Kids were let out of school and Paul Harvey talked about it on his radio show. High schoolers volunteered to wash the rigs

This log haul was organized by sawmill co-owner James Hurst

Years later, he hit on a plan for hauling several truckloads of shovels to Elko, Nev., to protest U.S. Forest Service road closings, it was called the Jarbidge Shovel Brigade.

He had heard of a situation in Elko County, Nev., where the Forest Service was refusing to repair a public road in Inyo-Humboldt National Forest, near the minute town of Jarbidge, and indeed had even blocked access with boulders and debris.

Residents of the county were outraged and tried to open it, only to be blocked by court action.

When Hurst learned that the people had tried to open that road with shovels, but were stopped – that what was going on there was what was going on in Eureka he contacted the county commissioners in Elko and offered to bring a few shovels as a symbolic gesture.

He ended up bringing over 11,000 that people had donated. He called them Shovels for Solidarity. Some were used that July 4 to open the road in Jarbidge Canyon.

“I wouldn’t miss this for the world,” says Mike Nannini, one of the four and a truck stop owner from Wells, Nev. “We intend to do everything we can to help call attention to the need to revise federal forest policies.”

Nannini credits Hurst with making it possible for the county to reclaim the Jarbidge Canyon road.

“We got our road back,” he says, “But had it not been for Jim Hurst and his Shovels for Solidarity and the national attention we received, the Forest Service would have never backed down. The road would still be closed.”

Four of Elko County’s five commissioners are expected in Eureka, bringing with them 500 shovels, plus the 13-foot-high shovel — embellished with the names of 9,000 sympathizers — that has stood upright in front of the courthouse in the city of Elko since erected last year.

(funniest thing you’ll see today) Oh Kharma, thou art a hilarious bitch (turn down your volume though, the woman recording this circus act of road rage is loud and annoying as hell while narrating)

February 16th, 2018 by admin

If I were the guy in the Bimmer I would have then pulled up and over, and taunted the rolled over truck guy.

Seriously, I’m not above that childish behavior, and in this instance… well, it was attempted vehicular homicide, so… you’re justified in taunting someone who has just tried to maim or kill you with their SUV. Moon them. Waggle your bird at them, piss on their windshield, you’ll get a pass from me on it all.

CHP arrived and the Ford was still on it’s side in the center median. Andrew Carson Branch, 23, of Escondido, was the driver of the Ford Escape, and in addition to rolling his suv, he now is arrested and booked for felony assault

The BMW of 33 yr old Kevin McCall will be charged with misdemeanor leaving the scene, and probably inciting, and assault with bodily fluids, and maybe even traffic charges of stopping on a freeway and obstructing traffic.

But really, he’s going to pay a fine, frame the tickets, and get this video on loop in a display case.

The “two star” flags on the Rambler Command Staff Car are misleading, as it’s actually carrying the departing, and incoming Lieutenant Colonels.

The “El Jefe” (The Boss) decals on the front fenders hint to the tongue in cheek spirit in which the car was decorated by the squadron members…

The story goes, that it was originally fit with an F-106 pitot tube and mast. Which despite sporting a “remove before flight” tag was removed at request of Air Police, who deemed the needle a pedestrian hazard
