In 1980, Tucker designer Alex Tremulis and a few crazy engineers hatched a plan to combine an airplane’s belly tank and a complete 500cc Subaru Rex drivetrain. The goal: 100 MPG.
I recently ran across this great page of 1950's-90's Soviet car design post cards featuring renderings by Eric Szabo. It’s pretty great.
Spotted earlier this week. Badge suggests a 390 V8.
Holy crap, I NEED to do this. How is this not a Car Culture release? It’s amazing beyond belief. <3
My rally has come along
My lonely days are over
And exhaust is like a song, oh yeah
Just a little detour on the way home.
I will be going to one of them tomorrow to flex the ole ballpoint. I see one in Scottsdale and one in Cave Creek. Which is better?
I now live less than an hour from Sedona, so what better way to spend a day on spring break than to hike a vintage Tonka out into Boynton Canyon?
Orange you going to join us in a moment of silence?
I’m loving the trails around here. Just get on your bike and start pedaling!
Well I’m not very happy with Framed Bikes. One of the last parts that I didn’t upgrade was the bottom bracket. It developed some play late last year and I discovered that Framed spec’d a non-standard 155mm wide BB. In fact, it’s not only non-standard, but not available as an off the shelf replacement part.
Big Life Changes. Moved from Detroit to Flagstaff. Started grad school. No road salt to rot your vehicles up* here. Where do the car people hang out?
You know the drill. Year, make, model. Free shipping this time. This should be an easy one.
My mother is looking to move to Flagstaff, Arizona VERY SOON and is looking for a place to board her two horses. She is a long time horse owner and wants a good place for them to stay while she gets settled. Is there anyone here who knows of a boarding opportunity in or near Flagstaff?
HW “Tour De Fast” comes with two tiny track bikes that are actually almost exactly 1/64 scale. I plan to cut them apart, detail a little, add real handlebars and display with pickup trucks. Too bad the rest is now waste.
Meijer restocked with SEVERAL pegs of Car Cultures so I had to grab a set. I have one extra 510 as well, if anyone really wants the whole set. If you REALLY want more, I can probably get more- I don’t assume all the pegs will be empty in one day.
I’m starting to think about what calendar to get for my desk next year. Does anyone know of rally-themed print calendars? US and/or vintage rally would be awesome but current WRC would also be cool. Just feeling out the options. Whatcha got?
I’m on a search for rare reference material. Looking for early 60's aftermarket pickup truck bumpers. Sports Liner made the bumper on my truck, but I know a lot of farmers welded up their own bumpers. Show me!
