I kinda hate washing cars as the current status of the paint on the lancia will confirm. Will be doing a clean and clay bar today followed by some black trim restorer on the nose. I have a compound and wax to do tomorrow.
FIAT was founded on July 11, 1899 so let’s celebrate! I know FIAT gets made fun of a lot, but it is my favorite car company. I love the history, the cars, the aircraft, hell even the factories. It’s a company that has brought me a lot of enjoyment these past years and I thank all the workers who have helped make that…
I’ve added Battlestar Galactica Deadlock, Divinity: Original Sin 2, and the Endless Legend Collection to the library. Probably could have saved a few bucks by not getting the collection packages but overall I’m pretty pleased with everything. Cutting myself off at that, though.
Just look at that fatty on the left. Shameful.
Registered for my first car show in over a decade and it’s got me feeling a bit nervous. I’ve been to Cars & Coffee several times since but that feels different somehow?
Because I sure as hell do right now. Saw this beauty on the way back from test driving a couple Velosters.
Dog sitting for my sister. There is literally an identical dog bed just out of frame but of course it isn’t good enough. Indy seems less than enthused about the situation.
Owner is clearing out their collection and these are all for sale. They’re all a bit rough.
I love tanks. This here is an M47 Patton powered by a 29L air-cooled, twin-turbo, V12 Diesel. The museum has a spare engine that they are hoping to put in sometime after they complete restoration on a 1915 Stevens-Duryea. It was a good day.
The interwar period was a strange time for technological development. What we have here is an air cooled 9-cylinder radial engine was for use in an M4 Sherman according to the owner. While searching for suitable engines for armored vehicles in the 1930s these radials were found to be the only thing powerful enough and…
No rush, guys.
My dad and I are taking a pretty big road trip in August in his 61 Fuelie Corvette he wants to bring it to his hometown. So far on the list is hitting Indy, the Patton museum in Ft Knox, the Corvette Museum (obviously), and followed by the Lane before heading home from there. We’ve got about a week or so so that…
Just up to steamboat springs via Laramie. It's kind of a dress rehearsal for taking the Corvette to Indiana and Kentucky in August.
I knew it was coming this month but didn’t know it was today! Oh, I have to be at work in 5 hours. Damn. Hopefully it’s quiet this weekend and I can catch up.
Turns out that the current Nardi steering wheels are not made in Torino anymore, but a small town north of Milan by the name of Tradate.
Hope your Tuesday is treating you alright also
Keep in mind nederland is over 8000ft in elevation. These things were immaculate.
What a weird little vehicle.
