Harry Crosby quit his teaching job to be a photographer, and was on assignment photographing the city of Tijuana in 1964.
Harry Crosby is almost single-handedly responsible for introducing the culture, history and landscapes of Baja California to contemporary audiences through his explorations, landmark photography and classic volumes on the magic peninsula, including “Antigua California.”
Mexico honored Harry Crosby with a postage stamp for his pioneering photography and documentation of over 180 rock art sites painted by the peninsula's original inhabitants. The resulting book, “The Painted Caves of Baja California” received international acclaim and is credited for helping to bring UNESCO World Heritage Site designation to the Sierra de San Francisco murals.
the blog is fabulous. It is the first thing I look at when I open my computer in the morning. Truly a pleasure every day. Thank you.I survived getting shot in the chest in 1969 and returned to the U.S. in time to be invited to attend Woodstock. I didn’t go, I was done camping.

However, he had no need for one, nor did he order it. Apparently there was a home a few doors down the street that did order the driveway though that looked very similar. When the crew came back to see if the job was up to par, they realized it was the wrong customer and it ended up costing them an estimated $8,000 Australian dollars.
The Reddit user wrote, “When the person that laid it came back to see if I was happy with the job, he realized it was the wrong address. I now have a free concrete driveway.”
This street in Los Angeles hasn't been paved in 94 years... that industry lost the secret of making paving that lasts, as the current pothole issue proves without a doubt

the Ford vs Chevy race to dominate any and every aspect of the automotive world resulted in a lot of similar things, like the ponycars, Mustang and Camaro, the car trucks, Ranchero and El Camino, the 427 vs 427, and the wrist twist steering
1st photo is the Mercury Wrist Twist if I recall correctly, and bottom is the Chevy Turbo Titan III
oh wow, so 1968... I wonder what happened to this VW van? Hell, I wonder what it was like to be in your twenties in 1968
that is a cool painting on the van!
have you heard of the Viper R/T 10/ CS? Carroll Shelby and Fitzgerald Motorsports, made 19 Carroll Shelby Limited Edition Viper Roadsters... even though the plan was to make 50. Seems no one needed to waste more money on a Viper for minimal gains in performance over the stock factory Viper they could buy in a dealership
this is #5, and about 25 years ago, #16 was in the San Diego Auto Museum for about a year.
18 1995/1996 RTs were built (16 white with blue stripes, 1 blue white stripes, 1 black with gold emblem on the hood) and one 1997 GTS Shelby S/C (Street Competition) which was red with gold stripes.
Modifications were a fresh air intake and better exhaust, plus a remapped ECU, helped bump power to around 500 Hp from the stock 415.
The car was also fitted with a 3.73:1 rear axle ratio in place of the stock 3.07:1 unit, along with racing harnesses for some extra safety.
A group of Shefford UK neighbors threw an attention getting party — for a car that has remained abandoned on their street for a year. There aren't many ways to draw attention to a car that has not moved, and this is a good idea
Since the car has been here, George Street has been turned into a one-way road — and it is the only vehicle on the road parked facing the wrong way.

After the filming of Thunder Road was completed, Robert Mitchum bought the actual shoebox Ford he was driving in the movie, and had it transported back to LA!
The police cited Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins and guard Jedrick Wills Jr. on Tuesday morning for drag racing each other
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by
Out on 441
Like waves crashin' on the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful
Something that's so close
And still so far out of reach
Oh yeah, alright
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl
