apparently 1980s boat motors are junk, and you might as well know they simply won't last more than a year or two before getting added to the junk heap of other junk motors out in the back field behind the boats. Or, this is the graveyard behind an outboard repair shop, or both
Bill France could probably afford any car he wanted to drive in the Carrera Panamericana... choosing a Nash must have been due to a good reason (thanks Steve)
After the 1950 Carrera Panamericana (which allowed only strictly stock vehicles and included more than one Nash), the No. 37 car entered a few NASCAR heats.
the source says that these are a VW Brilkever, a Kever, and a Cabriolet, at the Zandvoort.
So, the split rear window bug is called a Brilkever, the Kever is a word for the bug/beetle.
I've never heard of the term Brilkever, so, learn something new every day!
The Brilkever had the split rear window, was built from 1945 to 1953 and had an output of 25 hp, and was compact.
I know that the Zandvoort is a racetrack in the Netherlands, maybe in translation it appears in the description as a word meaning where they are racing, and not trying to describe the 3rd car. Translations are not perfect

I don't see how this can be a good idea, getting kids to think that they can talk to cars (thanks Gary!)

The idea of taking a plane from the skies and burying it undergrownd is that of British contemporary artist Roger Hiorns, to symbolize the end of an era, a symbolic act of saying good-bye to an era of development represented by the MiG planes.
Riddle me this, why do we have robots on mars, but it took until now to put cameras on Georgia school buses to ticket the assholes that risk kids lives by driving past when the stop sign is out? buses are now taking pictures of "Stop runners". If you pass a bus while the stop sign is out and the red lights are flashing
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office is working together with Carroll County Schools by reviewing violation video and license plate images for final approval prior to a citation being issued. In Georgia, the penalty for a violation will warrant the vehicle’s owner a $300 fine for the first violation, a $750 fine for the second, and a third violation in a five-year period will result in a $1,000 fine.

I saw a good number of cranes in my 10 years in the navy on piers around the world, some pier I can't recall in where I got a tour of the USS Kamehameha in 1990 in Florida, somewhere between New Smyrna and Cocoa beach, Jebel Ali, Perth and Gladstone Australia, Chin Hae South Korea, Sasebo and Yokosuka Japan, Esquimalt Vancouver Canada, and Pearl Harbor....
But I never looked at one and thought it looked like a giraffe.
This car has windshield wiper heaters to melt the ice and free your wiper blades during winter... I've not heard of this until now. Makes sense... darn good idea for far North countries
and since I've already recently covered the Auburn Cord Duesenberg connection with the Stinson, E.L. Cord acquired a sixty percent interest in the Stinson Aircraft Company late in 1929, and none of those are in this photo... and that looks like a Piper or similar tiny airplane smaller than a Stinson
