Les Galapiats race cars. It's a French company that builds small race cars for teens.

Usual biking story " some turkey just pulled out right in front of me".

I miss Calvin and Hobbes.

Hall of Famer Lonnie Gilbertson's "Hit and Miss Special" bellytank is powered by a single-cylinder John Deere-powered

a simple way to protect the dragstrip timer guy? Cement or concrete storm drain piece

because the above can injure or kill the track guy pretty fast, the below

center cylindrical piece seems like a damn good idea

by god those Buicks were great looking funny cars, but they appear to be WIDE

the above "Ingenue" still exists

the story of these fiberglass bodies getting made, and built and raced at

and if the 1st thing you're reminded of is the Steve Strope Pure Vision 67 Buick...

yeah, me too. Seems it's still not getting worked on, and hasn't progressed since I last posted about it

Stephen Colbert did Mr Goodwrench commercials

only one pilot is known to have performed a barrel roll in a Lancaster bomber, a feat that was considered by some to be reckless or impossible due to the aircraft's size and relatively modest performance.

Coffee and donuts movie of the morning! Skip the 1st minute, then it's sideways take off or landings in 62 mph cross winds

where did all the cool rims on muscle cars go?

and Keystone Klassics... What a cool look. I still remember the first time I noticed them, I was 6 or 7 years old

no one seems to run 10 inch rims on the back anymore, and no one seems to have slotted mags either. I loved those, and had a set on my 71 Challenger

living the dream

Where is this kid sized bug now?

James got a hair cut, and seems to have hidden a lucky rabbits foot, some 4 leaf clovers, and maybe even a fairy godmother somewhere his pocket... as he seems to be the luckiest guy I've ever seen. Almost

fixing up a 58 Caddy, then decorating it with fake graffiti, that's a ballsy choice

I've never seen a flip front van before

I've never looked in a Rumble Bee before, it had some interesting special touches

There was a class at Pebble Beach for LS powered Ferraris, Bowtie Ferrari... but no one ever brought their Ferrari to show, and risk being scorned for

heard about it on

Randy Cook made a book on the many Ferrari that lost their original engines during the 60's and 70's because parts were unobtainable, and the cars weren't worth much then, and no one cared that owners kept them running when they weren't worshiped by investors

beautiful cabin on the seashore used as a take off and landing location... a very short, landing and take off

Cool vintage advertising
