Hudson NY soapbox Derby days of the late 50's and early 60s


Jeremy Renner was in India filming for his new tv show

want to see a photo go viral? Make a USA flag with white, red, and blue old tractors

do you get what I'm saying?  It would take hundreds of red and white ones... but, of there were some red threshers, or combines, that would help.

Just putting good ideas out there in hopes someone makes it happen for the 4th of July

Allis-Chalmers 190 Beachmaster

The Allis-Chalmers Beachmaster tractor was designed to work closely with the Allis-Chalmers Beach Sanitizer. This implement was produced in the 1950s and '60s for parks and recreation departments to assist with beach maintenance. This implement sweeps trash up onto a chain link belt and sifts the sand out. The trash moves along to the top and is deposited into a dumpster on the rear of the machine.

I was right, a Fiat 500

the blog "Daily Timewaster" has a LOT of great stuff, and I look at it every night

Nash advertising

changing gas prices every minute has overheated the system.

Thanks RLK! 

Bernie Ecclestone arrested in Brazil for possession of a gun

Bernie Ecclestone is reported to have been arrested in Brazil for illegally carrying a gun in his luggage as he prepared to board a private plane to Switzerland.

Ecclestone, 91, had been in the country with his Brazilian-born wife, Fabiana, who was elected an FIA vice-president last year.

He has previously said that he was shaken by the abduction of his mother-in-law in Sao Paolo six years ago.

Kidnappers demanded a ransom of $36.5m (£28m) for her safe release, but she was freed unharmed after a police operation.

compliments of the day!

you put the current Jalponik to shame. keep it up!


Jalopnik is a business enteprise, JACG is a labor of love - a big freakin' difference. There may be overlapping content, but your blog show tons of stuff that Jalopnik would never touch, which is but one reason this blog is so much more interesting than whatever else there is out there.


happy that you are taking care of yourself the world would be a lesser place without you Jesse

Seen on tonight's walk

When looking to see what this Mustang looks like, I found that the owner also has a Cougar in the garage

it's easy to spot where a Ford usually parks... either it's marking it's territory, OR, it's horsepower sweat.

When is the last time you saw a Fiero being used as a commuter?

I wonder what W115 is about

One of today's installments of "what's under the car cover?" I think it's a 1960s Fiat 500, or an Isetta

Looks like that camper has remained in the back of that truck since the 70s

it's not common to see street signs covered by shrubs

This truck owner seems to love old Dodges, I'm not certain about the RV

Another chance to guess at what's under the car cover

oh heck, I had to see what it looked like, obviously it was a 60s T Bird, and it's been there for over 15 years... hasn't moved.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles pleads guilty, is fined $300 million in emissions fraud investigation

The company acknowledged its efforts to evade emissions requirements for more than 100,000 older Ram pickup trucks and Jeep SUVs in the U.S. The affected diesel-powered vehicles span model years 2014 to 2016. Negotiations between FCA lawyers and U.S. officials to resolve the current probe dragged on for years and across presidential administrations as the two sides haggled over whether the company would plead guilty and, if it did, the exact details in any criminal charge, one of the people said.

If I was the judge when this court case came up, I'd give him a beer, and make the van driver pay for damages

Emirates Team New Zealand, the America’s Cup-winning sailing team, has launched an attempt to break the wind-powered land speed record later this year.

Earlier this week, Team New Zealand officially unveiled its land speed record challenger, the Horonuku. The vehicle will be powered, for lack of a better term, by a 10-meter (32.8 feet) tall rigid carbon-fiber wingsail. The wingsail is designed to propel the land yacht up to 155.3 mph (250 km/h) if the conditions allow.

Glenn Ashby will pilot the vehicle. Ashby has won two America’s Cup Matches as a sailor with Team New Zealand. 

He is testing in Auckland, before Horonuku is moved to Lake Gairdner to continue testing and tuning on the salt lake to be ready to roll when a weather window comes along

Thanks Kim! 

This is from Jalopnik, and I think Kim for sending it to me, because I don't look at what Jalopnik does, as I'm pretty sure they do enough good stuff that I'd constantly be reposting what they've already done, and, if I were doing that, there would be no point to looking at my blog at all.... it would only be a reflection of Jalopnik

Mike Schroeder from Montana’s Red Right Hand of Moto, never had a Monkey or other bike as a young kid, so he decided it was time to rectify things.

After building the bike, it felt like it needed something more. The z50 is so tiny, it felt like a toy, so I figured, why not make it a life-size toy? 

Inspired by die-cast toys he used to love, he built a box, designed the wrap, and made the box.
