just a step away from a horse drawn carriage, a 1912 Aberdonia, Landau


The Aberdonia was an English car manufactured in Park Royal, London from 1911 to 1915 by the coachbuilders Brown, Hughes and Strachan. The engine was a 3160 cc, 4 cylinder, 20 hp (15 kW) unit, it cost £500 with seven-seated touring coachwork, or £700 with "special landau body". At the 1911 London Motor Show a one-off design, mid-engined and forward-control with the driver ahead of the engine was displayed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberdonia_(car)

both wheel drive motorcycle and bicycle... I bet it would be a hell of a great off road machine

Get ready for a shocking cool story... 2 AMC Spirits raced the 1979 24 hours of Nürburgring with two Penske prepared Eagle Spirits in 1979


And they didn’t just race. They finished 1-2 in class, but there’s a lot more to the story. The drivers — which included IndyCar racer Lyn St. James and James Brolin — came to Nürburgring without ever having driven the track. So, they recruited a local to show them around the place. This local turned out to be a WWII veteran named Heinz who lost his right arm while serving as the captain in a Panzer tank.

Skip the first minute

Elevator parking lot behind 2301 Kuhio St, Oahu, Hawaii


Above is looking at the taller building in the center of the photo, behind the short business building


and this is looking at it from Duke Lane

Both images are screen shots from Google Street View, and this parking garage has been roofed and walled in... probably to make it aesthetically appealing as possible



here it is on satellite image, the tan double roof in the center of the image

Thanks to Mark Hann for telling us about it on facebook in response to the often seen Chicago image


But because it's inner structure is covered by the exterior walls, it may not be an elevator parking but instead may be the "pigeon hole parking" system that was featured and explained on The Old Motor http://theoldmotor.com/?p=128118
