I was at a railroad museum riding a Birney car or something similar with a father and his elementary school aged son. The motorman proceeds to explain that we are riding what is called a trolley or tram or streetcar, not a train. He is the motorman or conductor (although usually the conductor is not the trolley Read more

I don’t think you need to worry about parking since you’ll never be able to stop driving it.

Gas rotary and turbine engines of certain sizes, and gas piston engines of displacement >4L seem to be exempt if it gets around “26. Other vehicles.” I’d need to make a chart to figure out what may be exempt.

I love looking at their cars even though many of them are major CP with frame rust. They do occasionally have what looks to be a nice car. That Lagonda looks decent and last year they had a good looking Merak for 30k.

I have every surface of my apartment covered in Lego. For tearing down a set to build again I suggest gallon and quart Ziploc bags. Read more

Someone down the street from my dad has an ‘85? hardtop with this awesome paint scheme minus the door decals and spoiler. Total ‘80s goodness.

One of the best parts is the ability to transfer between games! I don’t want to sound preachy about downloading games and emulators can provide a much better experience for some games (Zelda II).

I won’t condone pirating games, however, play Golden Sun and it’s sequel The Lost Age for GBA. Fantastic music and graphics along with puzzle elements and a fluid class system. You can skip the DS game Dark Dawn.

I can’t believe I forgot to mention that. It was the point of my title! I guess because there’s no viewing window like on the later mid-engined cars.

Pro-tip for driving an old Rolls or Bentley: they have transmission driven brakes. In addition to there being little braking power at low speeds, there is slack in the clutch for the brake servo so when you go from forwards to reverse you won’t have brakes for around a foot (so I’ve been told).

I hope you set aside an entire day for the museum. They hustle you through the tour, but the free showroom is enormous.

I’ve been tardy on posting my photos. Absolutely stunning and you can get right up to the cars, but you’d get ejected for dragoning.

This was stunning in person, but looking at some photos I think the monochrome does look better.

Sorry, I was driving so I couldn’t get a photo of the guy driving a McLaren Spider I saw twice in the past week.. It’s a pleasant 75 here so he had the top down.

I didn’t take a close look, but those might be ducts. Either way, body color would be better. The lights already contrast with the white.
