  1. No signage ......

    I always feel sorry for the children when I see this sign;
  2. Head bolts

    Problem with this method is getting the required number without getting run over by oncoming traffic.
  3. No signage ......

    Stop signs required me to always 'Squeal Tires On Pavement'. I remember signage off the N.Y.S. Thruway onto the Mass Pike that read; 'Squeeze Left', always thought that was strange. It's gone now Would have liked it as a wall hanger.

  5. Traction on ice and snow

    I would put the weight ahead of the rear axle centerline to prevent the backside 'coming around' and if you can keep the sand dry, you will be able to use it for traction. In these here parts it tends to get wet and freezes, then you have a block of frozen sand. Great for weight but you ain't spreading it anywhere. From MassDOT website; Are studded snow tires allowed in Massachusetts? Studded snow tires are legal from the First of November to the End of April.

  13. Self parking car

  14. The Dozier & Hegerty-H&F Racing ’34 DeSoto Airflow Coupe is seen before going through Inspection at Bonneville Speedweek in 2017. Under the hood rests a 346” Chrysler running on gas that was chasing it’s ’04 record of 151.208 mph. Speeds aren’t posted for the car on the S.C.T.A. website yet.

    Yeah. Those are Erickson Aircranes. Sikorsky sold all the rights to Erickson for the Skycrane. They do mostly logging, fire fighting and power line construction with them. In a little ironic twist, several years ago, Sikorsky in Stratford was getting several big heat exchangers installed and they contracted Erickson to do the hook work at the plant. They have a tremendous rate of climb when empty. Really cool looking and the last aircraft that Igor had a personal hand in designing. There is a rearward facing seat and set of flight control behind and beneath the flight crews stations so during the lift, the pilot and copilot relinquish the control of the aircraft to the aft flight position so he can maneuver the load into position.

    I'm with you there. That's why I make my annual pilgrimage to Lead East. They bill it as the largest 50's party and although it's attendence has tapered off a little the last few years, it's still one the best cars shows ever. Talk about lost in the 50's. And it lasts for 3 days and nights. Always a good time. Plus, I have reservations at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for Saturday.

    They are called 'Bombs' and they are usually loaded with every possible option and add on of the time. And we've been through this before...some folks like, others, not so much. And then there's the haters.
