You have to remember to have your radio turned off, and your cell phone is going to tip them off you're lying... but if you have a pad of paper, and pen, and you've used it to carry on a conversation (with those pages still attached) ... write on it to talk to the cop.

Dutch designer Roeland Otten likes to brighten up urban streets by camouflaging misplaced public structures with site-specific art. He uses mosaics, geometric paint designs, and high resolution photograph wall coverings to recreate the otherwise blocked and lost views along city streets. Below are three different projects in which Otten decorates old, run-down public buildings that, although they are ugly, are necessary to maintain clean urban areas.
Once again Bill Warner has come up with a little something new for his annual Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance. On March 15, 2015, the 20th such Amelia gathering will display, "the eclectic and eccentric cars customized and modified to promote America's movie and TV cowboys with the highly anticipated ‘Cars of the Cowboys' class." Warner says the class was inspired when at age 11 he met then cowboy movie star Lash LaRue and was given a ride in LaRue's Muntz Jet car (For those who don't remember, the vehicle was one of the many promotions of "Mad Man Muntz" who gained his greatest fame for his "Muntz TV" that mounted a large, magnifying screen a few inches outside of the small screens then offered on most TV sets.) Among the "cowboy cars" slated to be on display are those of Leo Carillo, Tom Mix, Roy Rogers and Dale Robertson

The Race of Gentlemen is nothing if not detail oriented. The race grounds themselves were quartered off by beach fencing. Each major sponsor was protected from the elements by what looked to be vintage circus tents complete with original tie-downs, hardware, and roof mounted wind socks. The food vendors were housed in reclaimed wood sheds that were assembled on-site much like the vintage-style timing and photography towers that lined the track. And then, of course, there was the glorious event headquarters – a WWII era General’s tent capped by a vintage Craftsman sign (a show sponsor).
Never have I seen a more focused group of traditional hot rods and bikes that spoke to me so loudly and so clearly. Right down to the last roadster, every car was appropriate to the venue and the vision of the Oilers and their “clothing company.” Everything fit with precision. It was a perfect field… So perfect, that I began to think again about the passion and dedication of the people that put this thing on.
