Last Call- Follow Me Edition

Robert Emslie February 26, 2015 Last Call

tempelhof54_main

Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport became internationally known as the terminus for ‘Operation Vittles‘ better known as the Berlin Airlift. For 11 months USAF C-47 Skytrains flew food and supplies into Tempelhof in flagrant disregard of the Soviet Union’s attempt to isolate the divided German city.

Once the C-47s were on the ground, they were no doubt guided to their destination by a car like the Volkswagen above which was specially fitted with signs, spot lights, and an amazing panoramic rear window to ensure that the guide didn’t lose his follower.

Last Call- This is The Man Edition

Robert Emslie February 25, 2015 Last Call

USA from the 1950s-1960s (1)

Snapped outside of Memphis Tennessee in 1960, this trailer lot sign with its disembodied arm denoting the man responsible for your new trailer-including lifestyle is the kind of roadside wonder that we just don’t get to enjoy these days. Instead we’re served up brown or white vans and men in shorts delivering goods ordered over the Internet. It’s convenient, but it sure isn’t as much fun.

Last Call- You Take Me Higher Edition

Robert Emslie February 24, 2015 Last Call

Circuit maps can certainly show you all the corners and the lengths of the straights, but they can’t tell you what kind of roller coaster ride those turns and straight might actually be. That’s why I find the elevation maps of race tracks so fascinating. This one, for New York’s Watkins Glen track, shows not only the aggressive corners and wide open straights, but how much gravity is going to be working for your/against you throughout the track.

Last Call- Special Delivery Edition

Robert Emslie February 23, 2015 Last Call

UPS

If you’re like me, you order a lot of parts online, and then eagerly await their delivery – usually by someone in brown shorts. I’m lucky enough to have a house with a well-hidden front door where packages can be left with some semblance of peace of mind against later theft. Not everyone is so lucky, and some times you just have to be home to receive that package. This humorous instructional sheet indicates that even that might not always work in your favor.

Last Call- Leave a Good Impression Edition

Robert Emslie February 20, 2015 Last Call

Ice Jeep

Needless to say that while many of us here on the West coast have been enjoying unseasonably good weather and rugged good looks, much of the country has been plunged into a deep freeze. As this Redditor discovered, another indignity is the inability is having your car’s death mask left behind after a lengthy stint in a parking lot after an ice storm. That or Wonder Woman is in town for a convention.

Last Call- Orange You Glad Edition

On the left, the 1969 Adams Brothers Probe concept car, and on the right, the 1966 GM XVR prototype. Both as wild an example of ’60s automotive extremes as you could want, and both very, very orange. Which one would you rather rock?

On the other side of the bumper: You can take my bacon when you can pry it from my warm, greasy fingers.

Last Call- Wild Bill In The Wild Blue Yonder Edition

Robert Emslie February 16, 2015 Last Call

Bill Cassidy

“Wild” Bill Cassidy survived this nightmare-inducing crash at Arden Downs in Washington Pennsylvania, however he did receive seriously injuries as its result. Occurring on July 12, 1936, this was well before seat belts, roll bars, or pretty much any safety equipment was seen as a necessary part of a race car. Back then the thinking was that it was better to be thrown from the crash rather than risk being crushed or crumpled in the wreckage. As evidenced by this perfectly timed photo, it likely wasn’t.
