under the hood

In the 70s, the car was fitted with a genuine 1970 NASCAR 426ci Hemi by its previous owner, who at the time worked for Ray Nichels – former head of Chrysler’s NASCAR program.

While the engine’s original intake is no longer fitted, it retains the genuine X-Code Chrysler Racing block and heads, and now runs a single 1050cfm Holley carb and direct-port nitrous system.

Stadium super trucks are a lot of fun to watch

I bet you’ve never learned of this before! A 1940 mid-air collision occurred over Australia. Both Avro Ansons of a flying training school remained locked together after colliding, and then landed safely.

July 6th, 2017 by admin

The collision stopped the engines of the upper Anson, but those of the machine underneath continued to run, allowing the pair of aircraft to keep flying. Both navigators and the pilot of the lower Anson bailed out. The pilot of the upper Anson found that he was able to control the interlocked aircraft with his ailerons and flaps, and made an emergency landing in a nearby paddock. All four crewmen survived the incident, and the upper Anson was repaired and returned to flight service.

The Ansons were at an altitude of 1,000 feet when they made a banking turn. Fuller lost sight of Hewson’s aircraft beneath him and the two Ansons collided amid what Fuller later described as a “grinding crash and a bang as roaring propellors struck each other and bit into the engine cowlings”.

Just 3 cool shots from the Burnout catagory, and he also has Bonneville, a dragstrip, Race of Gentlemen, and Speedweek Australia… so, plan on looking around at the other things he’s focused on!

From 1955 to 1992 Jim Beam was producing decorative decanters to spur sales when bourbon fell out of favor and the company was faced with a glut. An executive realized that having decorative bottles produced would sell a lot of bourbon

February 27th, 2017 by admin

Jim Beam released collectable decanters that started a chain reaction, other liquor companies followed Beam’s lead like Canadian Mist, and Jack Daniels

The makers of Jim Beam point to a collectors group, the International Association of Jim Beam Bottle and Specialties Clubs based in Madison, Wis.

Shelia Gillingham is the club’s executive administrator. She said the association was formed in 1971 and has members in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, the Netherlands, England, Japan and Germany.

it is very likely the liquid inside is not fit to drink any longer, even if it stayed sealed.

If the Jim Beam whiskey in it is still amber but not cloudy, it probably would be drinkable, but after it is removed from the oak barrel it does not continue to age, there isn’t any point to believing that the older the bottle, the better the Jim Beam. Buy a new bottle if you want to drink it, buy an old one if you want to collect the bottles

There were around 3300 different decorative bottles made, and they celebrated everything from whore houses in Nevada to submarines. There is even a collector that has a museum of them in Akron Ohio.

of snorkels and spare tires, the Ferrari P4 in 1967 -68

December 23rd, 2016 by admin

Modified to run in the ’67 CanAm Series in the US. Chassis ‘0858’was then acquired by ‘Scuderia Veloces’ David McKay for one fabulous season in Australia

just look at the induction snorkels and that spare tire… quite a strange look indeed.

the caption to the above photo:
That ‘Australian’ spare tyre. Fitted as a consequence of our local sports car regs at the time. SV solution a neat one even if the weight is well outside the cars wheelbase…where else to put it!? Yellow stickers ‘Gatto Verde’ a gift from Alf Francis to McKay, McKay makes mention of it in his autobiography but not actually what the stickers mean/represent.
