There has been a lot of variety in the Jeep brand since WW2

Ghostbusters Afterlife, plot and story details finally released, and a couple images

The film picks up approximately 30 after the original Ghostbusters and follows a single mother and her two children. Carrie Coon will pay the mother and the story picks up after she and her children move to a farm left to her by a father she never knew. Finn Wolfard plays her mechanically gifted son and McKenna Grace plays the science-oriented daughter.

When the family arrives at their new home in Oklahoma, the children befriend their summer school teacher, played by Paul Rudd, and they start to notice the odd occurrences around the farm and in the small town. Trevor discovers the classic Ecto-1 hidden under a tarp and Phoebe finds the very familiar PKE scanner that reads psychokinetic energy that fans will recognize from the classic films.

“As the family arrives at an old farm, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters,” Reitman said. “Trevor and Phoebe are about to find out who their grandfather was and whether they’re ready to pick up the proton pack themselves.”

Reitman doesn’t want to confirm much else about the family’s history, but people may already notice some familiarity in their appearance.

In the collapsing barn of their farmhouse, they find an old car, bloomed with rust, hidden beneath a tarp—the retro-ambulance turned ghost-hunting mobile.

While her brother tinkers with the car, Phoebe finds herself transfixed by the mystery of their new town—not just by the peculiar subjects in their dilapidated home, but strange rumblings from a nearby mine. In this shot, she and her schoolmate (played by Logan Kim) ignore warning signs to venture closer to the abandoned mine.

this is the way they should have built them... they weren't built to sell to passengers, just to drivers

smart marketing ideas begin with noticing that buses are used by politicians

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

it's Friday, the end of another work week where I've been adding interesting things to this blog, so all I have to say to you is

His chair is on wheels, and it's funny... so, I get to post it. Them's the rules.

1947 Buick

Believe it or not, there were two Scouts at SEMA that looked like this... and I forgot to take photos of the other one

I believe this was in the Overlander area to show the diesel engine, a Cummins,

not my video, not me recording, but it's nice to get a video look at cars in addition to photos.

The other was the Gas Monkey Garage "Hellscout" 

Steve, you'd see a lot more of these Wagoneers if you'd get yourself INTO SEMA and look around (or remind me A LOT more when I'm at SEMA, so I'd remember to look for them for you)

this small motorbike was right in the middle of SEMA's central hall,  for info on the specs, but I was more interested in the why of the design, so, if you are too, read

I can't believe I haven't posted about AirBedz before, they've been at SEMA for years, and have s4eemed to add cool new products every year. This year their booth was bigger and had more stuff

seriously, impressive booth display.

Okay, now information

as you can see by the airbed in the bottom photo, they have built in electric air pumps, a variety of sizes, airbedz for tents and camping in truck beds too

A lot of interesting things are found at SEMA, and plenty of them are outside my area of focus, but occasionally some of them are too impressive to not pass up on, here's one, the Pullrite Superglide

I could try and describe it to you, but it's highly doubtful I could do any better than this one video I found....

The key point is that this 5th wheel does a lot to prevent a trailer from hitting the trucks cab when hard cornering, by moving something like 14 inches back, away from the cab, only during cornering when as I recall. I might be off on the number accuracy, so don't quote me.
