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.

True stories that seem impossible…

There was a Pennsylvania boxcar that needed repair, and so was shoved on to a storage siding to await repair sometime in 1932.

the Prosperity Special

May 17th, 2017 by admin

the Prosperity Special was a train made up entirely 24 Baldwin locomotives, part of an order of 50, left on May 27, 1922. They “headed west out of the Baldwin Locomotive Plant to East St. Louis, took the Cotton Belt Line across Texas and was switched to SP tracks in El Paso.

Thousands of spectators lined the tracks to see an almost half mile long train made up entirely of new locomotives cross the country bound for California. A large sign was erected on the lead locomotive that read, ‘The Prosperity Special’.

The special arrived at Taylor Yard in Los Angeles in early June. Half of the locomotives would stay here and run heavy freights over Beaumont Hill and Tehachapi Pass. The rest of the locos went to Sacramento for duty over the Sierra Nevadas, the train stopped to take on water before the descent into Bakersfield and the trip up the valley to their new home in Sacramento.

A couple of years ago I posted this pic of the completed 50 at Eddystone, Pennsylvania:http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/02/baldwin-locomotive-works-1922.html

Le Monstre of Briggs Cunningham, a 1950 Series 61 Coupe deVille

February 21st, 2015 by admin

At the end of World War I, Cunningham’s uncle street raced a Dodge Touring car that was powered by a Hispano-Suiza airplane engine. Briggs would accompany him on many of these races, thus fueling his interests for automotive racing.

Cunningham was a wealthy man. His father, who passed away when Briggs was only five, was the founder and president of the Citizens’ National Bank and a director of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

He married the grand daughter of Standard Oil’s co-founder.

Briggs went to Yale, and his classmates and friends from that time were pivotal in some ways to his successes. One friends father was the head of Chrysler engineering, and came through with new Hemi engines when Cadillac withdrew engine support, powering the C1 and C2 Cunningham cars.

Some info about the Big Boy locomotives

February 14th, 2015 by admin

The Big Boys were 132 feet long and weighed 1.2 million pounds (engine and tender) in working order.

the 4014’s 14-wheel tender can hold 24,000 gallons of water and 28 tons (56,000 pounds) of coal.

The drive wheels in this locomotive class are 68“ tall, that’s 5 feet 8 inches.

If a Big Boy was stood upright, it would be approximately as tall as a thirteen story building.

The Big Boy class measured just short of 133 feet long, weighed 1,208,750 pounds, averaged about 6,100 horsepower at speed.

For additional comparison purposes, the most powerful diesel engine was the EMD DDA40X, with 6600 horsepower. This class was also the longest and heaviest, at 98 feet and 521,980 pounds.

The longest class of locomotive ever built was the Norfolk and Western’s “Jawn Henry” steam- electric turbine prototype, which measured in at a massive 166 feet.

the Jawn Henry

The Chesapeak and Ohio’s M1 turbine, was a close contender, at 154 feet in length, and going by measurements in which the boiler is assumed to be full, but the tender is assumed to be empty, the CandO M1 at 1,233,970 pounds class is the heaviest steam locomotive.
