The Blakely Special #52 was at the Desert Classic Concours d'Elegance

Hagerty TV added video coverage to the vintage Snow Mobiles in their magazine that I posted a little while ago

The Snow Machine coverage is after the Jay Leno interview about Corvairs, and starts at minute 5:02

Found at because I signed up to get their newsletters, and video notifications (great stuff!)

interesting things I spotted at last weekends Big 3 Swapmeet... you can't predict what you'll find!

Merchandising... wonder how many boys competed to clock the best time?

Small bellytank, not big enough for a hot rod, but a good case for a motorcycle streamliner

 Steam engine oilers

 A vice to look for if you are ever in the need for one... the jaw is reversible to have enormous openings, or small ones. The right hand jaw even has a flat face for hammering on

 Anyone remember seeing these flaming pots when you were a kid?

A floor jack on knobby tires... for off road tire changes?
