Mecum Machines: Kneel before your God…

Forget that Lincoln from before, because this is a true dream machine. Yes I’d do regrettable deeds to own one, and yes I’d daily drive it.
Super indeed…

    If that's a split window next to it, I'd actually really be torn on which I'd rather have…

      Thought the same. I don't think it is, though.

    A friend was building a car from a solid Roadrunner and a rusty 'bird, back in the days when a decent original would only set you back $15-20K. The donor car was not a Hemi, but the clone was. After he got the suspension and drivetrain taken care of, he took me on a shakedown run. They had just completed a new bridge at the edge of my neighborhood and had built a section of road on the other side, but it didn't connect to anything yet so it was basically a dead end with no cross traffic at that stage of completion.
    My friend opened up all eight barrels and we were up to 140 in no time at all. Not the fastest I've ever been in a car, but no doubt the fastest I've been on a 30 MPH residential street.

      140 would best my top speed in a car by 15mph, even including the hours and hours I've spent on a race track! (Granted, in Lemons, but still …) What were you in that topped 140mph? That would be terrifying. In a good/bad way.

        Terrifying? Depends on where you do it.
        I've driven 149 mph on the German Autobahn.
        I can tell you that isn't scary at all.

          I've slept at 140 on the Autobahn.
          That is the only way to travel.

            Technically, I was behind the wheel (and to the left), and there was someone else behind it as well.

            Amazing how that speed in an old musclecar felt epic and terrifying, and now soccer-moms do that in Escalades while texting.

        A Challenger with a hopped-up 440. Speedometer didn't have numbers that high, but we calculated about 160 from the tach.
        I was 19 at the time and my friend who was driving probably shouldn't have been that morning (4 am), but we both made it to our respective homes safely and without incident.

    A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.

    Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
