a ‘32 roadster was just pulled out of a barn where it was parked in 1955, and forgotten about.

May 23rd, 2018 by admin

It still has the original side curtains and top

The known history of this roadster starts with a 1946 California pink slip, the year a Eureka, California, rancher bought it.

Look at this terrific radio and radio antenna… I’ve never seen an antenna like this!
It’s a 1930s Firestone radio, and Stewart Warner gauges

a Sichuan Airlines aircraft that made an emergency landing after a windshield on the cockpit broke off

May 15th, 2018 by admin

a half hour into the flight, at 32,000 feet, the windshield in front of the co-pilot broke, and he was “sucked halfway” out of the cockpit window after the window blew out, Reuters reports.

“Suddenly, the windshield just cracked and made a loud bang,” Captain Liu Chaunjian said. “The next thing I know, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out of the window.”

He described a harrowing scene. He said anything that was not screwed down was “floating in the air.”

“I couldn’t hear the radio,” he said. The plane was shaking so hard I could not read the gauges.”

The co-pilot was wearing a seatbelt and was pulled back in, suffering only minor injuries, the report said.

A BMW M1 was purchased in 1981, never registered, and driven just 4,500 miles before it was left in a garage in southern Italy, where it sat collecting dust and clutter until it was discovered in 2016. 34 years of being ignored

Terrible news from India highlights what a deplorable condition some countries are in due to lack of honest merchants

May 11th, 2018 by admin

Don’t drink anything that isn’t in a sealed container from a manufacturer… and be careful what you eat, too.

Indian tea seller caught using water from train toilet. Enough said? But, keep in mind, a middle school student making a science fair project found that in American fast food restaurants, many ice machines were more contaminated with E-Coli than the water in the toilets.

this ’68 Mustang is owned by Carol Marini of Farfield, California who bought the car back in 1968, and has driven it over 850,000 miles

May 9th, 2018 by admin

When new, Carol’s Mustang was your average C-code 289 automatic hardtop clad in Lime Gold Metallic with black standard interior. It was the proverbial school teacher car with optional black vinyl top, air conditioning, power steering, and wheel covers. As a busy educator in the late 1960s, Carol drove her Mustang an average of 30,000 miles a year.

The original 289 expired at 225,000 miles when the radiator and water pump failed simultaneously, causing the engine to overheat. After rebuilding, the 289 went another 113,718 miles before it spun a bearing. Peterson Machine replaced it with fresh 289. At 508,536 miles, Bailey Brothers in Vallejo rebuilt the replacement engine when it lost a cylinder. That engine now has over 300,000 miles on it.

The 8-inch rear axle with 2.79:1 gears has never been touched.

Over the 43 years, the Mustang has had three engine overhauls, two transmission overhauls and five paint jobs.

And then one god damn teenage rear ended it, and it’s now probably beyond repair… it’s certainly beyond a fixed income senior citizen’s ability, but there is a Go Fund Me set up in hopes philanthropy will move someone to give generously

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,

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.

a starting-line car for horse racing, a Buick horse racing gate car!

April 14th, 2018 by admin

Of the 3,305 Buick Roadmasters built in 1954, this one was ordered specifically for this purpose. It was used at Maywood Park Racetrack in Chicago.

Unlike thoroughbred racing, where the horses start from a fixed gate, the gate in harness racing is mounted to a vehicle that starts the race by pulling away from the line of horses. The gates fold forward on the vehicle as it accelerates and then it turns off the track at the end of the straightaway, while the horses continue around the turn.

here’s what that appears like when in use:
