Archie and his dad are going to fix up an old roadster! (but did they have to make it part of the only musical episode?)

June 12th, 2018 by admin

Silver Lake’s 1941 Texaco was given a 2nd life today, it’s been on track to that Historic-Cultural Monument magic status, and the developers that bought it to demolish and replace with an apartment building are miffed. Tough.

above, what it once looked like, when it was fresh as a new egg, and loved like a puppy. But that was 70 years ago

And it’s been neglected a long time. Inflation is a bitch, and squeezing every last dime out of making a living kills any day to day upkeep, and rarely does anyone have the spare cash to get deep into a building restoration

Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell initiated the landmarking process in March before demolition work could begin.

Planning staff notes in a report on the building that older service stations are “becoming increasingly rare” in Los Angeles. City officials have awarded landmark status to only three: in Pacific Palisades/Santa Monica Canyon, Brentwood (Sunset and Barrington intersection) and a Gilmore in Hollywood, now a Starbucks at 859 North Highland Ave.

A beach Fiat once owned by the Agnelli family for zipping between their resort on the Riviera and the town

May 29th, 2018 by admin

This happy little car is what records show to be Gianni Agnelli’s personal and custom Fiat 500 Spiaggina.

Discovered intact and unused, but retired in a Northern Italian garage, Agnelli’s ownership ended in 1973 when he gifted the car to his driver of nearly 30 years, who then ceded the car to Mario Rossi, a lifelong friend of Gianni’s.

I posted a great interview with him

Longtime Nickey fabricator John Tinberg spotted an ad on eBay Motors for a ’55 Nash two-door post, and made a cool little gasser out of it

May 27th, 2018 by admin

when he spotted this ’55 Nash on eBay, he hit the “buy it now” button. The car was soon delivered to the Nickey gasser shop, where he and Randy Schmitt build all the straight-axle cars for Nickey. The Nash sat for months, inspiring much discussion and many concerns about whether it was even practical to make a unibody Nash into a real gasser. Tinberg issued the challenge to Schmitt, and after some head scratching and a few dozen sketches on the garage floor, the plan came together.

The Boss Bronco

May 8th, 2018 by admin

The first Bronco, the prototype for the 1969 Boss Bronco went to Shelby to use on his Christmas Mountains Land and Cattle Company ranch at Terlingua, Texas, near Big Bend National Park and just north of the Mexican border.

But before the Bronco got to Texas, it was delivered first to the Shelby American workshop in Los Angeles, where it underwent an engine transplant — likely boosting it to 200 hp and 282 pound-feet of torque, or perhaps more, knowing Shelby — and was repainted red and white.

From LA the Bronco went to Texas and was used on the ranch until 1978, when it was sold — without its wheels and tires — for $100 to the local Ford dealer, Vincent “Vinnie” Yakubanski. The Bronco served as the Yukabanski family’s daily driver, and made frequent trips back and forth to Wyoming, often with hot dogs wrapped in tin foil and cooking on the V8’s intake manifold along the way.

The Boss Bronco was a project by Ford prototype builder Kar-Kraft, designer Larry Shinoda and off-road racer Bill Stroppe. Their hope was that Ford president Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen would approve the souped-up Bronco for production, especially since they named for prototype for him, the Ford Division “boss.”

The Boss Bronco was built with a blueprinted 351 Windsor V8 engine and four-speed automatic transmission, 4.11:1 front and rear limited-slip differentials, Stroppe’s own Baja-racing style suspension and power steering, Stroppe padded roll bar, Stroppe rear fender flares,

How many people are actually fooled by unmarked police cars?

If they’re really trying to be undercover, they should drive 8 year old silver Camrys
