Last Call: Rising to the Occassion Edition

Unicycle Window Kiss, ca. 1950s
We never have found out what it is exactly that Meat Loaf wouldn’t do for love, but we can see the lengths – or heights – this crazy Unicyclist went to for a second story smooch from his lady fair.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

  1. It was eat a sandwich made with Miracle Whip.
    He would only do that for spite.

    1. Isn’t that what Hot Rod and Four Wheeler late-’80’s April issues were for?
      (I may have said too much already.)

  2. I finally got my copy of “A Picture History of the Automobile” and my scanner together long enough to scan the picture of the 1902 De Dion-Bouton Type-K. This is the photo I’d seen as a kid, which I had intended to include in my Saturday post about it. Unfortunately, logistical problems prohibited it until today.
    This is by far the best picture I have seen of it without the hardtop installed. However, from this angle I thought as as kid that it was a three-seater with the driver sitting in the middle, along the vehicle centerline, McLaren F1 style. You can easily imagine that the two doors open on either side of a central pillar that supports the steering wheel.
    I definitely mis-perceived the proportions…but would be cool, right?
    Oh, heck, this thing is cool however it works!

    Actually, there is some sort of ad campaign here in Sweden right now were he won’t refuel at an unmanned ST1 service station.

      1. I don’t know. It finishes with the line “Dare to refuel differently.”
        It’s even wierder because every single pump in Sweden is self served. The only difference here is that there’s no store with pay desk (or whatever it’s called) at the side.

        1. The ad strikes me as pointless, too. Somebody appears to have signed a contract after a night of binging out with the marketing dpt?
