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.

The restoration of Hemmingway’s Chrysler 392 hemi New Yorker deluxe convertible in Cuba

December 3rd, 2016 by admin

Soul, now a dual citizen, USA and England, is a Hemingway fan who has traveled to Cuba several times and is friends with the museum’s administrators. When the restoration project stalled, the result of difficulty obtaining parts due to the longstanding U.S. trade embargo with Cuba, the museum director, Ada Rosa Rosales, called on Soul to intervene.

Although Cuban mechanics are experts at keeping old American cars running, much of their work comes down to improvising repairs and hand-making parts. But proper restorations require original components, impossible to find on the island. Soul contacted a parts supplier in Massachusetts that specializes in classic Chryslers and found that its proprietor is also a Hemingway enthusiast. Parts problem seemingly solved.

However, despite Soul’s best efforts, some parts have been delayed due to customs snags, while others, like a fuel tank, have proven difficult to locate. The plan had been to debut the hour-long film this June in time for the 14th Hemingway Colloquium in Havana, but the delays will result in a later release.

Just a sample of the beautiful work John does, from Massachusetts to New Jersey… just photographing diners. That is very cool!

His website has 101 so far, so go take a look!

Now this is where it gets good. The vehicletest.state.ma website basically says that Massachusetts follows California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B) rules.

“Transmissions and transaxles changes alone are not legal. Transmissions and transaxles can only be changed along with their matching engine.” Ummm, What? I can’t replace my transmission without doing the engine at the same time!?

“Electronic ignitions or electronic point replacement units for vehicles not originally equipped with these items require an Executive Order to be legal for street use.” So I guess going from points to an electronic ignition is a bad idea now?

“Modifications that change a vehicle from fuel injection to carburetion or from carburetion to fuel injection also require an Executive Order to be legal.” …cringe.

“Headers for use on catalytic converter equipped vehicles require an Executive Order to be legal for street use.” Efficiency apparently does not equal cleaner emissions?
