on Wednesday, Lyft will deploy cars from the 1930s in New York City to promote a new Budweiser beer called 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager.

October 23rd, 2017 by admin

Riders looking for a 15-minute trip taking passengers “past landmarks and neighborhoods that were integral to Prohibition,” the vintage experience can sign up through Lyft’s website, and will receive a $10 credit to cover the cost of the ride.

The fleet of vintage cars includes a 1930 Buick, a 1936 Riley Kestrel, 1937 and 1938 Packards, and a 1942 Cadillac. Cars will only pick up riders in Manhattan between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Oct. 25.

“When Budweiser told us they wanted to offer a fleet of vintage cars to launch Repeal Reserve, we knew Lyft was the perfect option to celebrate the new recipe in a stylish and unexpected way,” said Melissa Waters, vice president of marketing, Lyft. “We encourage everyone to make the right choice to drink responsibly and keep our roads safe, and that’s why we continue to team up with Budweiser, a brand that shares the same commitment.”

Also as part of the marketing around the product, Budweiser is working with alcohol delivery service Drizly to offer consumers $5 off their first purchase of 1933 Repeal Reserve with the code Prohibition.

Budweiser and Lyft team up often, on holidays, to reduce drunk driving and celebrate those late-night heroes who give — and take — responsible rides home.

Each night thousands of Lyft drivers are doing their part to keep drunk drivers off the road.

Now Budweiser’s “Give a Damn. Don’t Drive Drunk” campaign is making the right choice easier than ever by providing up to 150,000 total round-trip rides during weekends and holidays through the end of the year. The rides will be available across 10 states: New York, Colorado, Illinois, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Texas, Georgia, and Washington, D.C.

Might be a mafia dumping area, a pond 20 feet deep was found to be hiding one car, and many barrels, on the bottom. A body was found in the car… no word yet on if there are body parts in the barrels.

August 17th, 2017 by admin

On Aug. 15, divers contracted by Michigan Department of Transportation to clear a pond of barrels of unknown origin found what seems to be a 73 Buick Electra 225 with human remains inside at the waters’ bottom.

By the week’s end, forensic scientists will examine the remains to determine who the person was, police said.

The man-made, 20-foot-deep pond is located between I-75 and Saginaw Auto Recyclers.

It was created sometime during the construction of the nearby Zilwaukee Bridge, said MDOT spokesperson Jocelyn Hall. That time frame places the pond as being built between 1979 and 1988.

this makes the 4th car I’ve posted about that was found underwater with a body in it…

A 69 Coronet was pulled out of a Florida canal, two teens went off a road after a concert in 78.
A lake in Oklahoma had a couple cars pulled out, both had simply went straight instead of around the corner, a 69 Camaro and a 55 Chev, bodies still inside.
And a 68 Catalina missing since 72 in a fishing lake in North Carolina

all the luxury that could be bought, Graham-Paige Blue Streak Cup in 1932 with Curtis Aerocar Land Yacht caravan trailer

August 25th, 2015 by admin

American banker Hugh McDonald used this luxurious combination in the early 1930s to be driven from his estate on Long Island to his office in New York.

The trailer resembles an airplane and was built in according with aviation building principles by the Curtiss Aeroplane Company in Florida

A lightweight, tubular metal frame is braced with wire cables. The interior is furnished with lightweight wicker chairs and a desk. The Aerocar’s nose looks like a cockpit and is fitted with a compass, barometer, altimeter, speedometer and swivelling floodlights. The galley features a refrigerator and there is also a lavatory with flushing toilet.

A rather unusual vehicle for daily use, but not to the American banker Hugh McDonald who used this luxurious combination in the early 1930s to be driven from his estate on Long Island to his office in New York. The semi-trailer resembles an aeroplane and was built in accordance with aviation construction principles by the Curtiss Aeroplane Company in Florida.

Everyone has a story, some are found in the comments section on Jalopnik’s Alpha Tango about a B-25 used to make beer cold in WW2 Libya

July 26th, 2014 by admin

Dad and his crew picked up their brand new B-24 at the San Diego Ford plant, and after check-out flight loaded up for the run to North Africa, the crew chief (who was a gruff old German from Wisconsin … he named the plane, apparently after one of the bomb releases that hung up on a regular basis) spotted a Schwinn on the ramp, rode it over, and threw it up into the bomb-bay. They flew across country to Florida, diverting through, and I do mean THROUGH (Dad flew down Main Street lower that the clock tower on the county courthouse) my Dad’s home town of Cleburne Texas, south of now DFW.

At Tampa (slogan: One a day in Tampa Bay), shortly before departing for the Azores, and on to North Africa, an MP rode up on a Harley scout bike and asked if they knew of the whereabouts of a bicycle that went missing from San Diego? After some discussion the bike was surrendered, and the MP climbed up on it and rode off. The Harley was quickly slid under the hull, hoisted up into the bomb-bay and the bomb-bay doors closed. Nobody came back to claim it, and after a few days, they flew across the Atlantic and Mediterranean with the motorcycle.

At the field in Benghazi (yes, THAT Benghazi) another crew chief offered them a Jeep in trade for the Harley, and since the whole crew could pile on a Jeep, they traded. Some time later a B-25 came in with an engine out, and the Jeep was commandeered for higher service. After staring at the B25 for a few days a bunch of the crew chiefs got together and fixed the engine. Dad and his co-pilot checked themselves out in the B-25. Dad figured that since it was only ½ of a B-24, it should be twice as easy to fly! Now, whenever a beer ration was issued they would stack in it the B-25, climb up from the screamingly hot desert to freezing altitude (somewhere around 20,000′), fly around until it was almost frozen, and make a screaming dive back down to the field where everyone would be waiting for a COLD beer, unheard of in Libya in 1943.

One day a T-6 landed, and a highly polished chicken colonel departed and marched over to Dad’s plane. “Lt. I understand that you possess a B-25″, Dad, “Well sir, we do put that one over there to use” The colonel had Dad give him a walk-around, and satisfied said “Lieutenants don’t own B-25s, Colonels own B-25s”, climbed aboard, fired up and flew it off.

Nudie Cohn (Nuta Kotlyarenko) customizer of Bonnevilles to the western movie stars

August 20th, 2012 by admin

Stars of the then popular western movies were no exception to the taste for extravagance in rolling stock. Indeed, with many of them having added a film career to their stardom as singers or rodeo performers were well used to glitz and glamour in their garb and extremes in what they drove. And indeed in the case of one Nudie Cohn who first put rhinestones on cowboys it was the same designer who decorated cowboys who also slathered their vehicles with western iconography. Silver six-shooters might be door handles or gear shift levers and silver dollars were imbedded in leather upholstery. Kiddie seats were little saddles. (All pre-seat belts and car seats obviously.)
