Last Call- Go To Bedford Edition

Robert Emslie September 29, 2014 Last Call

Bedford

There might be nothing funny about the limited amount of vacation time we all get, but should you actually be able to get away, how cool would it be to do so in this clown-esque Bedford CA Dormobile? These were built by Martin Walter Coachbuilders, and featured a 1.5-litre engine from the Vauxhall Weyvern, a fully-fitted kitchen, and even a flush loo! What more could a clown ask?

Last Call- It’s Better to be Pissed Off Than Pissed On Edition

Robert Emslie September 26, 2014 Last Call

Pissed Off

Is Chrysler’s A-body the last truly great Pentastar family car? Considering that what followed, the Aspen/Volare, and then a slew of K-car derivatives, it might very well be. That fact might just make you mad, but if you want to get really pissed off, then you’ll have to check out this Greening Auto Company-built 1969 Valiant, which goes by that name. Dropped and giving far more than 20, this beast is powered by a fuel injected 392 cid Gen III Hemi. And the only thing that might really make you mad is the fact that it doesn’t belong to you.

Great license plate, or greatest license plate?

Last Call- Name That Plane Edition

Robert Emslie September 24, 2014 Last Call

3644

Some aircraft are so cool that they can be identified by but a single physical element. That’s the case with this plane, which is not just cool, but iconic, having secured its spot in the pantheon of great planes. Can you tell – from just looking at its barrel-shaped cockpit – what it is? I’ll bet you can.

Last Call- Caddystang Edition

Robert Emslie September 22, 2014 Last Call

Caddystang

You’ve no doubt heard of Kurdistan, and Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan and Uzbekistan, but have you ever heard of the Caddystang? I thought not, and it’s a shame the modern system of education allows such an oversight. Where is Caddystang? No one knows for sure. What is Caddystang? That we know: it’s a Mustang II with a 502-cid V8 out of a Cadillac Eldorado mounted where ’70s teenagers would usually try to get lucky- in the back seat. The Redditor who once owned it says he sold it the day his daughter was born. It kind of makes you wonder where it is today. Maybe in Crazycaristan?

Last Call- Quite the SAAB Story Edition

Robert Emslie September 19, 2014 Last Call

Saab 12-strokes

This is a SAAB 93, which as we all know was available with a 750-cc two stroke, an engine that proved its mettle on the rallying circuit. Attempting to go that one better – or perhaps two better as the case were – was the  93 ‘Monster’ which featured two such engines, mounted transversely and driving through a central power takeoff. That’s 1,496-ccs and two strokes times six which made for a claimed 138-bhp and a 122-mph top end for the lightened car. At that speed, the 93’s nominally aerodynamic body would tend to lift and attempt to say how you doin’? to passing aircraft, thus ending the experiment.

Last Call- More Than a Peck Edition

Robert Emslie September 18, 2014 Last Call

IMG_1983

Do you like your food as hot as the performance of your cars? This semi was trailering not one, but two huge bins of red peppers, making it the spice express. I’m pretty certain it was headed out to the Sriracha sauce plant just about 5 miles down the road. All I know was that I was pretty dang hungry after having followed it for three exits.

Last Call- Ice, Ice, Baby Edition

Robert Emslie September 17, 2014 Last Call

300ZX

I don’t know about where you live, but here in my neck of the ready-to-spontaneously-combust woods, it’s been pretty freakin’ hot the last few days. I mean like triple digits, I don’t blame you for walking around naked, kind of hot. If you’re suffering the heat like I am, perhaps you will also – like me – appreciate the coolness, both in apparent temperature and in inadvertent art form, of these frost tendrils that appeared on the T-tops of this Nissan 300ZX. I’m feeling cooler already.

Last Call- Ready for Launch Edition

Classic-Motorcycles_Todd-McLellan_13

Todd McLellan takes beautiful photographs of motorcycles. This image is a from a series taken both in side view and, as seen above, from top-down. That’s a rarely captured view, giving the bike the appearance of a rocket on the pad, and lends a totally different angle on a bike’s beauty. There’s something else about this particular bike that’s extremely different, can you guess what it is? The answer is here.
