Yep. It's almost like the designer had that exact creepy bug in mind when creating the front end of the car.

If that thing came up behind me on the road, I think I'd poop my pants.

In 1937 Ford, with their eye on the 19 other countries where they built cars, came out with a smaller lighter version of the 221 ci flathead V-8 that they had built since 1932. The 136 ci V8-60 had alloy pistons and heads.
It gives this bike a low center of gravity and half the horsepower of a modern bike. :rolleyes:

The good news...
Here's a chance to grab a pair of badass Camaros.
The bad news ...
you can't drive them or the value will plummet.
Whoever buys then will have to put them in a climate controlled, insured, high security storage facility, and wait for the value to go up enough to get a return on investment plus costs.

Gravdigr 01-04-2018 03:54 PM

$4200 option? $4,200? A $7200 69 Camaro? Damn.

A car with two front ends that can be driven in one direction and then in an instant driven in the reverse direction instead has gone on display in Indonesia.
Mechanic Roni Gunawan, 71, designed the vehicle.
All that tiresome reversing in and out of a parking space will now be a thing of the past. :thumb:

It doesn't appear to have 4 wheel steering so it must lock the trailing end... or it's dangerous as hell. :3_eyes:

Yes, I assumed that the steering is appropriate to the direction of travel.
OTOH, it's from part of the world where road safety rules appear to be honoured more in the breach than the observance! :eek:

Heavens! That's a blast from the past.

The British car industry has changed beyond all recognition over the last few decades.
Most of the familiar names from that era have disappeared through mergers, bankruptcies or 'rationalisation'.
The latter often being a euphemism for hostile takeover, asset stripping and removal of competition.

Cars are still produced in sizeable numbers in the UK but there isn't really any such thing as a British car manufacturer anymore.

Attachment 63003

Morgan is the only British owned and manufactured brand in the above group and Rolls Royce (ROLLS ROYCE!) is owned by BMW.

Ten British Car Brands… and Who Owns Them

Honda, Toyota and Nissan also have UK plants and export substantial numbers of cars.


ETA. Having watched the video it jogged my memory about the British Leyland plant at Cowley on the outskirts of Oxford.

Pressed Steel manufactured body shells in their factory on one side of the Oxford Eastern Bypass which were then moved across the road to BMC/BL for final assembly by means of a glass sided conveyor bridge.

I haven't passed that way in years so I thought I'd have a look at Street View.

The conveyor bridge has long since gone but BMW now produce the Mini on the old Pressed Steel site and a business park exists on the former BMC/BL site.

Attachment 63004

The Oxford Eastern Bypass with an Audi dealer on one side and the BMW Mini plant on the other. How times change.

Street View

One last edit. Rolls Royce cars and Rolls Royce Aero Engines are completely separate entities.

It has changed hands a couple time with the current owner unknown.

Sometimes a beautiful thing will turn to shit simply because of who is associated with it.

A lot of places will make you buy a new tire... I don't blame them.

Gravdigr 02-19-2018 03:54 PM

Are we sure that's Fix-a-flat?:eyebrow:

BTW, in KY, it's state law you must inform your tire professional that there is Fix-a-flat-type-stuff in there, when you're in for a repair.

xoxoxoBruce 02-19-2018 06:32 PM

I saw this on Jay Leno's Garage late last night:

Attachment 63386

The guy built it on a Dodge Ram platform. It's front engine, with a Hemi, of course..... But they had to hand make the entire thing. Even the latch for the glove box. It's 40% larger than a regular beetle.... so EVERYTHING is 40% larger. Knobs, window cranks, hub caps, logos, everything.
