  1. 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.
  2. Interesting photos I have run across.

    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.
  3. California low rider Plymouth

    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.

  10. Stupid mistake

    I made that mistake once. I was 18 or so and living in a trailer park while going to collage. Money was tight and I thought I was being smart by pulling the bottom radiator hose off to let it drain. We had one really cold snap (up on the western tier of N.Y.) and the blocko el cracko. Dang. The radiator drained but not the block.

    All I have is my old AC arc welder helmet. How can you tell what shade lens it is?

    Duh. I should have known that. I did know that...had a Homer moment. Must have been thinking of a donut.
  15. Motor transport stand

    I should have known that Mr Coatney wood not only have the dimensions but also a photo to go along with it. I always used a couple old tires and some ratchet straps.

    On old friend of mine (well, we are the same age and I'm old but I've known him since I was a young feller so that makes him a friend I've known for a long time) sent me this photo. It's his dad and older brother in front of...? Possibly a Durant, as his father had mentioned that in the past. Can anyone verify?
  19. Bearing going

    I think he has a noise in his motor.
