In 1955, the German National Railway ordered thirty modified Volkswagen Camper Vans. The railroad used them for transporting work crews and track inspection. The video’s in German, but the rough translation: this is pretty damn cool. Going down the rails in a VW... one of the better ways to travel in my opinion. You…
In memory of my dear departed Fiesta. We shall meet again someday.
I guess the claim here is that European Teslas lack some safety sensors found on the US variant. I can’t verify that as fact, but their testing methods are interesting.
Karl Benz first engineered the opposed piston engine in 1897. Subaru adopted the design in 1966 for the 1000 model and has used it ever since. Personally, I’ve depended on this ‘little’ engine for almost twenty years. Thanks Subaru... and Mr. Benz.
Anyone who loves ships, especially fast American ones; the time has come to celebrate. The SS United States, still one of the quickest liners ever built, has been saved from the breakers. Details of the deal to be announced 4 February in New York. Maybe our friends at Jalopnik can dig a little deeper into the story.
A little early, but I’m traveling.
My best to all.
I don’t think Caterpillar has anything to worry about, but that Outback looks pretty cool.
Travel safe and eat well.
I’ll be in your neighborhood soon.
I could learn a few things from Daisy the Dog.
When the driver of a Maserati swerved to miss a dog in Australia, a can of white paint sitting on the rear seat went a flying. The resulting damage was so severe the car was basically declared a total loss.
James Horner, noted composer, has died in a plane crash. He was only 61. I’m sure this will be covered on the main site as the facts become available. A sad loss.
Hiroshi Koizumi, who starred in Godzilla Raids Again (1955), has passed away at 88.
Yes they can. I know, it’s pretty much an ad for Hyundai, but still pretty cool.
China has no animal cruelty laws, so when a driver saw his parking spot occupied by a stray dog, he kicked him out of the way.
May peace, contentment and a smooth ride be forever yours.
Not sure if this has been mentioned here, passing of another legend.
