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.

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

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

    who was talking about that crazy-expensive Soarer Aerocabin yesterday?
    bit more detail on that car. $30k is still pushing it, but i see why they’re shooting for all they can get.

    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!

    18 year old girl wants to turn on a road, doesn’t see a convoy of tanks. Car gets crushed, clichés get confirmed, the internet cheers. She wasn’t hurt, the Yaris is totalled, no word on damage on the tank though.

      Want to bet she was texting at the time?

      This came up when I googled “you scratched my anchor.”

      This, fortunately, was a rock falling off a truck onto an empty car.
      But the car is a Yaris. That’s all I got.

        This is when “oops” just doesn’t cover it…
        Jalopnik picked it up, has one more photo and a sort of story:

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

      Enough people actually have a problem with unmanned gas stations to warrant an ad campaign? Seriously?

      1. Jofes2 Avatar

        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.

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