a 1903 curved dash Olds that Ransom Olds himself put together in the late 1940s specifically to donate it to the Michigan State University

April 22nd, 2018 by admin

R.E. Olds donated a 1903 Curved Dash Oldsmobile to the Michigan State University Museum in 1949 to display for future generations.

MSU displayed the Olds at its museum for more than 50 years, but retired the car when exhibits changed. It had been stored at Spartan Stadium for years.

The vehicle is unique since it was constructed between 1945 and 1948 strictly for the purpose of donating to the MSU Museum. The Curved Dash design was produced from 1901 to 1907. This particular one features parts from different years, according to Val Berryman, curator of history at the MSU Museum.

“It was put together from various parts,” Berryman said. “It’s not a car that he owned, used or ran, but just something that he put together especially to donate to MSU.”

Adcock described the vehicle as a combination of several models which R.E. created with his own personal taste.

“It’s got wheels off a 1901, but an engine of a 1903 and a lot of brass pieces that I think R.E. put on himself,” Adcock said.

side pipes and half bubble top are the same, there couldn’t be two El Caminos like this

Both cars have Michigan plates, and the bottom (older) photo seems to have head rests missing by the time the car got the crazy paint

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

Artist and teacher Shannon Goff was always fascinated by cars in general and her grandfather’s 1979 Lincoln Continental in particular, so she made a cardboard replica

July 5th, 2017 by admin

“I had considered making it the color of my grandfather’s, but in the end I decided white was perfect,” said Goff. “It’s forlorn and forgotten, a ghost rider of sorts. It’s about memory and loss and is ultimately a memorial to my grandfather and to the city of Detroit.”

Goff received her BFA from the University of Michigan in 1996 before moving to Kyoto, Japan where she studied ceramics and calligraphy and worked as a woodblock printer. Since receiving her MFA at Cranbook Academy of Art in 2003 she has taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design, Cranbook, and currently at Penn State University’s School of Visual Arts

Sources differ on it’s originality, but this Bengal Charger is a good reminder that in the muscle car era, dealerships made some of their own models cooler than the factory

December 31st, 2016 by admin

this is Rich Grushinski from Scott Township, PA and Chrysler Power Magazine says it’s an original, but the local newspaper says it is a tribute

The second generation Charger was all-new for 1968 and so were the Cincinnati Bengals. Dodge dealer Tom Kneer decided to create his own special edition Dodge Charger in the team’s colors and learned from the team HQ that the team’s uniforms would be black with orange and white stripes and helmets would be bright orange with black “Bengal” lettering.

So he placed the order with Dodge for 50 1968 Chargers. Tom scanned through the paint samples in Dodge’s color guide and discovered an orange used for Michigan state fleet vehicles that he dubbed Tiger Orange.

Black vinyl tops and dual black stripes around the trunk rounded out Tom’s specifications for his Bengal Charger. Most cars were ordered with the 318 or 383, none were ordered with the 426 Hemi.
He had a few 6 cylinder cars built for marketing purposes and an estimated 10 – 12 R/Ts.

Because Tom was purchasing so many cars, Chrysler agreed to throw in the black Sport Stripes for free. In 1968, Chrysler put Sport Stripes on the Charger R/T only. Since most of the Bengals were not R/Ts, obviously, an exception was made. For this reason and because they were free, the stripe does not appear on the broadcast sheet but instead was part of the special order processing along with the orange paint.

Tom ordered 100 chromed

the Dodge model car contest winner from the 1968 Car Model magazine, the the Dodge/Car Model Magazine/MPC Funny Car Contest

April 25th, 2016 by admin

https://www.facebook.com/groups/stiffspeed/?ref=nf_target&fref=nf

The premier model car contest in the country during much of the year of 1968

Since this was a mail-in photo contest, the following photos from 2015 GSL reflects the first time ever – some 47 years later – that the overall winner, the second place nationwide, and the fourth place nationwide winners have been exhibited together. This exhibition was part of the 2015 GSL International Scale Vehicle Championship and Convention.

Contestants were to build their entry from MPC’s new 1968 Dodge Coronet kit, but parts from other kits were allowed.

When completed, two black and white photos and a 500 word description were to be mailed to the Car Model magazine editorial offices in North Arlington, NJ.

Entries were to be completed and postmarked no later than May 1st, 1968.

The overall winner was to receive an all-expenses paid trip to Detroit, Michigan, to visit the “Dodge Engineering Laboratories” and the MPC factory. He was also to receive every new MPC kit for the next three years.

Jim Keeler’s 1st Place “Dodge Fever” was an incredibly inventive design combined with unprecedented levels of detailing and accuracy. It remains an icon of model car building achievement nearly 50 years later. This is the original car built by Jim, and restored by Tom Dillion and Mark Gustavson, shown here on loan from its permanent exhibition International Model Car Builder’s Museum.

The 1st, 2nd, and 4th place overall winners (chosen from over 1,600 entries in the most important national model car contest of the year 1968) are displayed here

a 1977 Corvette is finally back with it’s former owner

September 1st, 2015 by admin

http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2015/08/21/michigan-reunited-tipton-corvette/32108709/

A Michigan father of three was left in tears after his children surprised him with the 1977 Corvette he sold 28 years ago.

Richard Tipton, 69, of Owosso was reunited with the vehicle he sold in 1987 when his wife became pregnant with twins and he decided it was not suited for a family.

His children, Molly, Abbie and Andrew, purchased the Corvette from a used car showroom in Flint after their dad had seen it there for sale more than a year ago

Andrew Tipton says to his father: ‘You’ve bought us enough vehicles dad, it was time for us to buy you one’.

Mr Tipton then walks over to his old Corvette and gets inside as the owner of it for the first time since he sold it 37 years ago.
