Last Call- The Gulf That Unifies Us Edition

Robert Emslie July 21, 2014 Last Call

IMG_5480-Small

I usually find instances where a racer’s pit bike matches their car to be a bit too twee. In the case of this Gulf livery-wearing Porsche and Honda however, I think I can make an exception. I’m sure you will agree.

Hopefully better than that of these guys.

Last Call- Super Negative Edition

Have you ever heard of Negative Supercharging? Me neither. Apparently it’s an invention of some blokes down in Australia that expands the exhaust cycle of a four-cycle engine to include a ‘pressure release stroke,’ and the intake stroke a ‘pressure drive cycle,’ to create a 6-stroke combustion process and yielding big power gains. Oh, oh, and that blind date that you have been assured is going to have a GREAT personality? Yeah, they’re going to be a total looker too. Check out more about this amazing and interesting Aussie technology, here.

Last Call- Triple Decker Edition

Tripledecker

She’s a brick… house. Actually she’s a Del Ray Camp King Sky Lounge. These amazing three-level pickup-based campers offered dizzying heights and potential catastrophe passing under low overpasses. Later models offered even more home away from homeliness with a swing-up top, sliding glass door, and rooftop deck. Just don’t put the waterbed upstairs.

Snap-On has been living up to wrenches’ expectations for decades, but have you ever wondered in just what decade your Snap-On tools were made? Well, wonder no more because this chart will tell you, down to the year. Even for tools not yet made!

Last Call- Buzz Cut Edition

Buzz

Here’s Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, showing up to work. All the astronauts got Corvettes to drive, a fitting ride for someone whose bumper sticker could rightfully read ‘My Other Car Is On The Moon.’ Aldrin is not only famous for his lunar exploits, but for having – at age 72 – punched out an idiot conspiracy theory believer when the jerk called Aldrin a liar and a coward, and wouldn’t leave him alone. Way to go, Buzz!

I’d also like to point out all the cool cars in this pic, and comment that it seems like a large number of foreign jobs in that particular lot for 1969.

Last Call- Rain O’er Me Edition

Robert Emslie July 10, 2014 Last Call

Porsche Wet

Considering that we are in the depths of both a drought and the summer dry season here in Southern California I am – unapologetically – feeling a bit parched. This has led me to consider our planet’s life blood – water – and, just how good both cars and streets look in the rain. Of course when you start with the inherent beauty of Porsche’s 356, you’re half-way to nirvana. All you really have to do is just add water.

Last Call- Chevy II, Crampedness Zero Edition

Robert Emslie July 9, 2014 Last Call

Chevy II

Have you ever tried to cram yourself into the third row of a modern Crossover like a Toyota Rav-4 or Mitsubishi Outland? It’s as though the designers expected you to leave your legs – and the top of your head – at home. Of course back in the sixties when categories were simpler, and car makers were unencumbered by distractions such as safety concerns, they designed cars you could stretch out in, like the handsome and commodious Chevy II wagon. And this was a compact!

Last Call- Staff Parking Edition

When you visit the Estonian National Opera you may exit humming something by Rudolf Tobias. If you happened to drive yourself to the Tallinn Opera House, you’ll also find yourself under the wand on the way out of the parking lot. Were it that all parking exits were so whimsical!

Last Call- Thundillac Edition

Builders have been dropping Chevy small blocks into Fords – like the Deuce – for decades, owing to the fact that both the Ford platform and Chevy mill offered cheap access to performance. Dropping a big Caddy motor in a Thunderbird may not however, garner the same level acceptance. Still, here it is. What do you think, is that sacrilege?
