The suits decided to tell the staffers last Friday. Yeah, JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
WTF is the deal with upper corporate assholes always making decisions to kill peoples jobs weeks before Christmas? It happens all over.
FYI, I gave up on Car Craft a couple years ago, there wasn't good content anymore. I gave up on Automobile because there was so little good content and I had too many magazines to read.
I gave up on Hot Rod Deluxe and Muscle Car Review because they wanted 40 or 50 dollars a years for a subscription, and damn it, I can't afford that much money for subscriptions anymore, the cost of gas, insurance, and rent is killing me. I don't get pay raises.
I still was subscribing to Mopar Muscle, and Autoweek, and NEITHER bothered to tell me that what I'd ALREADY PAID THEM FOR was something they decided to stop providing.
But the mfers are still printing Motor Trend. Who the eff reads that anyway?
Erlich was commissioned by the city of Miami Beach to create the work, which was unveiled during Art Basel. The surreal traffic jam depicts 66 life-sized sculptures of cars and trucks stuck in an imaginary traffic jam on the oceanfront of popular Lincoln Road.
The installation is meant to suggest a future relic, like a contemporary Pompeii, and alludes to Florida’s fragile position in the large universal canvas, touching on climate crisis and rising sea levels.
The installation cost over $1 million, but the city paid $300,000 thanks to sponsors and donations. It will remain on display until Dec. 15
The German parliament’s upper house, the Bundesrat, introduced a new law to ‘ensure a driver’s identity can be determined’ if they’re caught speeding. Anyone found with a facial covering, including carnival masks and face-obscuring hoods, will be fined €60.
The Transportation Ministry declined to comment on whether the legislation essentially meant a ‘burka ban’ but said: ‘The rule of law requires that only drivers can be held accountable. ‘That presumes that they can be identified.’
the Lower Saxony police procurement agency bought it in 1953. At that time, the 25 hp VW bus cost 6,750 marks. The Hanover police used the bulli for eight years, then it was fitted with a radar system.
One of the police officers was Heinz Scholze. The 89-year-old says: "It was completely new territory - for the road users and us." For the first time in Germany on February 15, 1959, speed violations were measured with radar between Düsseldorf and Ratingen.
Incidentally, the VRG2 still works today, explains Frank Märtens from the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt: "It still measures very precisely today, its error rate has a maximum deviation of three km / h, which means it is within the absolute tolerance range."
The truck had a 1990 Wisconsin license plate, but the Department of Motor Vehicles people were unable to connect the plate to an owner.
Chief Deputy Jeff Mueller estimates the truck sat on the lake bottom for the past three decades before it was discovered when a fisher picked up something unusual on a fish finder sonar about 100 yards from shore.
The vehicle’s location has led some to speculate that the vehicle may have fallen through the ice.
The discovery of the truck comes just less than a year after the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Department pulled a sunken 1980s Chevrolet Suburban from the Mississippi River.
The Suburban was discovered last July after multiple agencies received reports of a large object located about 50 yards off the shore in the area of Ninth Street in Buffalo City.
When Rachel bought “Chariot” in February of 1964, gas cost 39 cents per gallon. And the car only cost her $3,289. Veitch says the car has been featured in several car shows and was renovated in 2002 after she got a speeding ticket for going 92 mph in a 55 mph zone.
The key to keeping it so immaculate? “When I buy gas, I write down the mileage, the date and how many miles per gallon I got,” she told. “I’ve never been a destructive person and I’ve just taken care of everything, except my husbands.”
