        1. “We always have with us a workboat that could push the ship and get us out of any trouble”
          Does the engine have to be mounted in the same boat? Really a case where the bureaucrats should think a bit more before responding to such cases.

  1. “Vårmønstringen”, my region’s biggest car show, in typical weather. A field trip my son and I made yesterday. Here’s a selection of pictures:

    Burnin’ chicken – one of my four year old’s strongest impressions. Camarkoting.

    1969 ‘zone – Volvo’s are truly the bread and butter in Scandinavia, which is a bit sad…even I wasn’t excited to see one, and surprisingly few showed up

    Trabant 601 – together with an “Eleanor”-copy the most crowd attracting vehicle

    1960 GAZ Volga M21 – my show favourite, obviously

    1938 Opel Super – I had never seen one before. The low windshield was crazy attractive, even though 1938-me would have ridiculed the lack of visibility, for sure

    1964 Fiat – from a distance, I had hopes it might be a Lancia Flaminia Berlina

    …it was also clearly a car of the time and location of this 1964 Peugeot 404

    This one’s exclusively to please Mr. Harrell

    1. I do appreciate the shot of the Ford emblem but still can’t restrain myself from pointing out that the red P1800 is instead actually an 1800S.

  2. Many of these yellow school buses are powered by the beloved Ford/International/Caterpillar 7.3L Powerstroke Turbodiesel. Somewhere around 525lb-ft and 275 horsepower. Surely a lot more powerful than whatever’s on that boat.

    1. They will have to keep that in mind should they try towing the bus with the boat!

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a flat-front short bus before.
      Taken in Olympia, WA?
