I think this clever reimagining of this ad is the future we always imagine, but that we never seem to reach.

Robert Emslie January 23, 2015 Last Call

MonteroThe owner of this Nevada Mitsubishi doesn’t ever, EVER, want to forget which model it is.

Idiot

Yes, I certainly will give them a wide berth, and I appreciate the warn… hey, wait just a cotton-picking minute!

Last Call-Rare Even There Edition

While on my most recent soiree to my favorite toy store, er pick-yer-part, I came across a sad reminder that the sun does actually set on the British Empire. This Sterling 825i, née Rover, was well past saving, and while these never actually engendered the sterling reputation that their name implied, it’s now rare to ever come across one, even in the final resting place. Pip, pip, Cheerio!

Last Call- Baby Biker Edition

Robert Emslie January 20, 2015 Last Call

Baby Biker

While this probably would raise the hackles of the modern safety-minded individual, I’m guessing that 50 years ago the saddle bag baby carrier would have generated high fives for its ingenuity rather than frantic calls to child protective services like today. And it even works if you have twins!

Last Call- I Have a Dream Edition

Robert Emslie January 19, 2015 Last Call

405449JS-10

Today’s the day we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday here in the U.S.. One of the most influential shapers of the civil rights debate in this country, King is remembered for his inspirational 1963 speech – best known as the I Have a Dream speech – where he envisioned a nation without racism. We’re not there yet, but here is another Dream from the sixties, a Honda 305 Dream. Yes, it’s a really awkward way to commemorate the day, but at least I tried.

Last Call- World’s Smallest Door Edition

Robert Emslie January 16, 2015 Last Call

Willys

I’ve seen Willys Jeeps before. In fact, as an aficionado of WWII history, I’ve seen a slew of them. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen one – or any WWII Jeep for that matter – with a strap serving as a door before. This shot, which is claimed to be from 1941, shows that, as well as the fact that the Good Year logo is one that has truly stood the test of time.

Last Call- The T and Mr. Barris Edition

Robert Emslie January 15, 2015 Last Call

Steve-scott-uncertain-t12

That’s Steve Scott and his creation, the Buick Nailhead-powered Uncertain-“T” hotrod, and it was at the center of a lawsuit between Scott, who hand-built the car when he was still in his early 20s, and George Barris, who took umbrage at the car beating his entry upon its debut at the 1965 N.H.R.A. Winternationals Custom Auto Fair. In fact, Barris ended up slapping Scott at the end of the show, which engendered the suit.

Scott contended in his suit that the altercation resulted because Barris had promised the family that commissioned his entry that they would win the top prize, and was mortified that this car from some no-name kid – that had in fact been taken from a high schooler’s doodle – had beaten him. That’s just show business, I guess.

Last Call- Last Services For 50 Miles Edition

Robert Emslie January 14, 2015 Last Call

Barrett Jackson

I’m guessing that attendance at the Barrett Jackson auctions has been down, and the company is trying new ways to drum up business. Thanks to Kamil for finding this excellent bit of juvenile giggle fodder.

Last Call- Track Terrier Edition

Robert Emslie January 13, 2015 Last Call

Bill Peden

You don’t have to be fast to be competitive, you only have to be as fast as the competition. Here that competition is the under 125-CC class, and the racer is Bill Peden on his 50-cc (them’s moped specs) NSU racer back in 1965. I don’t care how slow it may be, it still looks like a ball to race.
