the Hendricks Grand Garnisher

September 15th, 2017 by admin

In celebration of World Cucumber Day, Hendrick’s Gin (which is itself infused with cucumber) has announced the launch of a brand new cucumber slicer! The Grand Garnisher is an unusually prodigious semi-automated machine capable of slicing cucumbers while cruising at road speeds of up to 25 mph! How does this work, you ask? Thanks to a hybrid combination of a large diesel motor and a well-dressed gentleman pedaling a large-wheeled bicycle!

The Grand Garnisher commenced its maiden voyage from New York City on June 14th (World Cucumber Day), striking out on a meandering path westward across the continent, seeking to delight onlookers, cocktail-lovers and cucumber aficionados alike.

Buick made trucks 1910-1922, and a couple unique ones, prototypes, after that… like the postal delivery truck in 1928 for use at the factory

September 2nd, 2017 by admin

One of 2,500 built at Buick’s Hamilton Road plant in Flint when you had to outfit them yourself or take them to a coach builder.

This is the one vehicle that survived the 1966 fire that destroyed the collection of Albert Koates, who owned a well-known glass company, and obtained the truck in 1951 from a Battle Creek collector, who in turn got the truck from a Chicago man who was an early collector of historic vehicles and a one-time president of the Antique Automobile Society of America.

Buick stopped making the truck in 1912. However, when Alfred P. Sloan went on to create General Motor’s “ladder of success,” in the 1920s Buick was positioned just below Cadillac in prestige.

Albert Mroz, author of “The Illustrated Encyclopedia of American Trucks,” wrote that Buick continued offering light trucks through 1918 and reintroduced a light truck chassis in 1922, but GM dropped it years later in favor of trucks with the Chevrolet and GMC badges.

In 1928:

the remaining one of four 1940 Buick Pickup trucks that were never “officially” built as concept or prototype vehicles, but were custom crafted by Buick Engineering in Flint, MI for use only as intra-factory service.

this year, the EAA show at Oshkosh did not get a special edition Mustang, breaking a 8 year string of innovative upgraded Stangs. This year they got a Raptor, and it’s got some cool details

Ford has raised more than $3 million for the annual event since 2008 by creating collector’s edition vehicles, with the F-22 F-150 Raptor this years special edition.

The finer details are the grill, and the side mirrors have a similar jet plane outlined lights, green and red, for port and starboard. I dig that

The F-22 F-150 Raptor was purchased by Gary Ackerman of Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas, Nevada. The vehicle has found the perfect home in that Ackerman serves as Honorary Commander/Ambassador for the United States Airforce’s F-22 Squadron at Nellis Airforce Base in Nevada.

Nicole Rush, Ford designer, and the Ford design fabrication team headed up interior enhancements. With the loftiest of expectations for unrivaled care and precision, building the F-22 F-150 Raptor was entrusted to Brad and Doug DeBerti at internationally renowned DeBerti Design. Betancourt says Ford could not have asked for a more purposeful execution of its vision than what the DeBerti team accomplished.

for some people motivation can be very different. Making yourself unhireable to common companies by tatting your face, neck and head, is one way to insure you’ll succeed on your own, according to Gary Queen

Finding that most people won’t train anyone to do good work as a job security principle, meant learning their jobs off the clock, so he went to work when the 1st guy got there everyday, 530, and learned his job before his own shift started at 8

He got his start in custom painting at collision repair shops in Austin. He learned the trade from the ground up. His job was taping off cars before they were painted, but he would come into the shop hours ahead of his shift to learn the other guys’ jobs. It was the only way to break out of the dead end job of taping.

His boss at the time told him he didn’t want to teach him how to airbrush because he was afraid Queen would take his job. So Queen bought an airbrush and practiced in his garage. Over one weekend, he painted his truck.

“I pulled my truck next to his truck on Monday morning. My truck whooped his truck’s ass. I said, thanks for not teaching me how to paint. You were my motivation,” says Queen.

Queen worked his way up to a Lexus dealership, doing the repainting after collision repairs, but his tattoos got him in trouble with the boss, so he quit.

“When I opened my own shop, I had one tattoo on the back of my neck. I said, ‘If I put tattoos on my head I’m going to make it to where nobody will hire me; that will make me have to work harder at my own business,’” says Queen.

Queen switched from airbrushing to run his growing business, and hired two full-time airbrush artists, Mike Cissell and Tim Murphy. Both used to work at American IronHorse, a now defunct custom motorcycle manufacturer and Murphy is a trained artist who went to art school in Boston.

Murphy had a 20-year career as a custom engraver but said the work became physically painful, clutching tools day after day. He wanted to be an airbrush artist so after moving to Texas, he began working for American IronHorse. When it closed down, he came over to Other Side Customs.

Cissell had been a muralist and was doing airbrushing side jobs for friends, eventually building up a customer base. At one point he opened a mixed-use space so he could operate a gallery and give airbrush lessons in addition to his custom paint work, but had to shut it down because the city hassled him about the ceiling, not having separate bathrooms for each gender and not having enough ventilation.

Tim Allen’s recent tv show, Last Man Standing… pretty funny

May 21st, 2017 by admin

very war of the sexes humor… it’s a hoot.

this is where he works, but when he goes home and is around his wife and 3 daughters he has to try and maintain his manliness in a world dominated by women, and be a good example of what men are supposed to be for his grandson, the little kid his single unwed daughter is raising in her parents (Tim Allen’s character’s house) as so many Gen X people are doing.

it’s on Netflix to stream. ABC was broadcasting it, and just cancelled it. Seems they aren’t a fan of Tim Allens adult oriented dad and husband humor. Disney isn’t about that sort of humor, they are about princesses and merchandising, and Disney owns ABC.

Despite strong ratings (2nd most watched comedy on ABC according to Variety.com) and a loyal fan base Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for the show.

The show didn’t have a ratings problem – it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season on Friday night, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights.

Instead of Last Man Standing, they’ll broadcast the princess drama “Once Upon a Time,” which this year drew… 3.2 million viewers, or half of Allen’s number. It’s the story of what might have happened to Snow White, Maleficent, and the other Disney fairy tale characters… Rumpelstiltskin, Peter Pan, etc.

Maybe a network or streaming service more interested in actually having a popular show will show some interest. Hopefully Netflix picks it up to run with The Ranch… another good show.

“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill battle though, after six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.

Pete "Hot Dog" Finlan, is the one pinstriper and painter you probably haven’t heard of, but should. His work was awarded a Ridler, and the Von Dutch Award (twice). No one else can claim that
