  1. Save your effort and advice. Lebowski isn't even the principle in this story. It's just a rehash of something that appeared in an Edsel owners' magazine.
  2. Has the new driveway gotten the first oil drips on it yet?
  3. Having too much free time, I searched "105 E. 24th Street, Charlotte" and found "Machine Shop of Charlotte" located there. Perhaps a successor to Jones Cylinder Grinding?
  4. Hinsdale 1/2" socket set that belonged to my maternal grandfather together with a more recent Snap On valve adjusting tool.
  5. Picture taken in 1972 of me examining my latest purchase which had been the Mercedes-Benz Standwagen at the 1956 New York International Automobile Show. Second picture is of the car at the show. Third picture is of the car at present.
  6. I didn't wreck it as my grandmother was driving when she allided with a utility pole, but the passenger's side windshield damage was all mine. I was about three years old at the time.
  7. Some of my favorites and used on occasion when more modern just doesn't work.
  8. Packard engines in PT Boats all rotated in the same direction as did the wheels they powered. Center engine was direct drive to its wheel whereas the two outboard engines were installed in an opposite direction to the center engine and transmitted their power to their wheels through V drive transmissions with their shafts passing aft underneath the engines.
  9. Strangely enough, I've never built an automobile model, but have always been attracted to aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm of which I have many examples constructed over the past 50 years.
  10. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
  11. Interesting that a New York State Trooper appeared to be first on scene at an incident in Manhattan.
  12. Special Interest Autos #42, November-December 1977
