Once Jessie bought a cool car, he thought he was finally going to make it with the ladies. Unfortunately, hot car or not, they all thought he had just too much baggage.

Last Call: Bee Alert Edition

Bee Sign

Apparently this happened on a stretch of I90 in Coeur D’Alene Idaho on Sunday, on a 108° day. The options for those without A/C in their cars were to sweat or get stung. Over 1,000,000 bees got away in the accident, so bee on the lookout.

Last Call: Mermaid Edition

Robert Emslie June 25, 2015 Last Call

134_0503_01z+1957_Mercury_Monterey_Mermaid+Front_Side_Parked

This is an exacting replica of of Bill Stroppe’s 1957 Mercury Mermaid, a car that the Mercury performance expert had built for the Daytona Beach Speed Trials. Stripped down to a single oval cockpit and featuring a jet-age fin behind that, the Mermaid was powered by a 387-CID Lincoln V8, to which had been added a Hilborn injection system, Headman headers, and Scintilla magneto.

This replica was built by Royce Brechler of Steven’s Point, Wisconsin. The original didn’t make much of a name for itself on the track, eventually ending up on a used car lot, and then parts unknown.  Imagine driving down the block and seeing this poking out of a dealer’s lot with a “Low Down Payment” sign positioned under its raised hood!

Last Call: Naked Fortress Edition

Robert Emslie June 23, 2015 Last Call

B17

The Boeing B-17 earned the name Flying Fortress due to its all-seeing gun emplacements. A low-wing tail dragger, the heavy bomber also earned a reputation for sturdiness and the ability to shrug off damage, many returning from missions riddled with shrapnel holes or missing sizable sections of their tails.

The early planes were most often painted in an olive drab camouflage, but the paint to cover a plane of this size can weigh as much a single bomb and later planes – like the one in this amazing nose-on shot – eschewed paint other than on the reflective surfaces visible from the cockpit. Somehow, that just makes the B-17 look even more awesome.

Texas is home to El Paso and this truck is home to life choices for passing. Of course, that’s why they invented auto insurance.

In the 1950s atomic this and radioactive that was all the rage. The atom may be one of the smallest things around, but back then it was pretty big, especially when some crazy scientist decided to split one. Chrysler, always wanting to be the half-life of the party, offered this ad where three soon to be cancer victims transferred a radioactive set of points to the safety of an open metal cup after running wear tests on it. Fortunately they do have a lead-lined box for longer-term storage. That right there was practical imagination at work.
