  1. Fortunate to to attend Indy in the era when the roadsters battled it out with the rear-engined ‘funny cars’ (an AJ Foyt term used back in the 60’s). 🇺🇸
  2. ‘America’s sweetheart’ - Doris Day 💝
  3. Musical reminder to keep ahead of the ‘rust worm’ we all must heed: Play it monthly for best results ...
  4. Dale Walksler, owner of the outstanding ‘Wheels Through Time’ museum in Maggie Valley, NC, passed away earler this week. He was a wonderful asset to preserving our motoring history, both 2 and 4 wheeled, all carefully displayed at his his museum. Dale lived his life by sharing his passion with any all, willingly and enthusiastically. There is much on the web about Dale, however this well done tribute shows him in his element relishing in his passion. https://youtu.be/9HYhlb99gA8 Gods speed Dale. https://www.themountaineer.com/obituaries/dale-walksler/article_7be729f6-6af7-11eb-9cfc-7bb6da31e56a.html
  5. Upon the completion of the 1998 merger between Chrysler and Daimler-Benz to form ‘Daimler-Chrysler’, a top Stuttgart executive was asked at a presser about the exact pronunciation of the new name. His terse answer was, ‘Chrysler remains silent’ ...
  6. I find the 18 volt cordless hammer my go-to tool and it was 20% off with the Harbor Freight ‘cupin’ ... !!
  7. Besides the extra cost to purchase an EV and the larger carbon footprint, the greatest drawback by far will be what to do with all those hours spent waiting while one’s car is charging. It has already happened on a small scale - stick ups, theft and vandalism. So one thing EV owners can do is learn all over again what it takes to be ‘shotgun’ on a stage coach, just like in a John Wayne western, providing some level of ‘security’ while sitting around for hours in unfamiliar surroundings - a thugs favorite target. Yee-ha !! 🤠
  8. Perhaps the general needed to launch their new ‘9m’ logo with drones, much like Kia recently did ... 🤦‍♂️🤔 https://www.motortrend.com/news/new-kia-logo-design-details/
  9. I’ll wager that this topic may inspire a few comments ... https://journal.classiccars.com/2020/12/21/electro-mods-company-has-plans-for-converting-collector-cars-to-electric-power/
  10. Perhaps one of the most recognized of the Greatest Generation that fought and won WWII, General Chuck Yeager passed away yesterday at age 97 on December 7th - Pearl Harbor Day. 🇺🇸
  11. Spend 3 minutes watching this moving, but warm clip of VJ Day in Honolulu. From the despair and dark days following Pearl Harbor to the end of WWII. Who among us today could not feel the rush of exuberance and energy of these brave men and women from 1945 ... 🇺🇸
  12. Mr. Garner and Uncle Buck stand by our Oldsmobiles as well as share the same Goodyear jacket ... I have had this jacket since 1967, the 442 - not quite as long.
  13. It certainly is not May, but today is the 2020 Indy 500 and this my salute, a big Texas hat off to A.J. Foyt !! 35 consecutive starts and 4 wins at the ‘brickyard’.
