No, they refueled. The seals were so AAA could record exactly how much fuel was used, same as they do on the Mobilgas Economy Runs. GM only touted the 45 hours, so evidently the mileage was nothing to brag about. All the trucks were gasoline V-8 powerglides, even the big ones, so I wouldn't expect much mileage.

Now I understand, thanks.

Is that Pigpen?

Gravdigr 12-22-2016 01:20 PM

I thought the guy looked familiar, but I don't know who Pigpen is.

Wait, the guy from The Grateful Dead!

Oh, he does look like the guy from The Grateful Dead doesn't he?

Yes, yes he does.

Ever see a Ferrari Race car, make that any Ferrari, with a continental Kit?
Racing in the '67-'68 Aussie Canam series, they had to carry a spare by Aussie rules.

My dream vehicle, but about $20000 over my budget

Gravdigr 12-31-2016 11:42 AM

It's like they ran out of metal and used plastic patch panels for fenders.

BigV 12-31-2016 01:59 PM

Plastic where you're likeliest to have bump that doesn't leave a dent. Anyhow, they make'em with body color fenders too, and anyhow, I can't see'em from the driver's seat (or the penthouse for that matter). I'd *love* to have this vehicle, outfitted exactly like this.

glatt 12-31-2016 05:14 PM

I'd take it too. Hondas are reliable. And it has a lot of room for hauling stuff when you need to. Plus the camping thing. I like it.

xoxoxoBruce 12-31-2016 05:30 PM

You both would be off in the wilderness relaxing and grooving on nature, then when you got back you find out you missed a week and got fired. :haha:

Everybody agrees, lowering is cool, the lower the better, amirite?

When I worked at the shop, we had a guy come in with a lowered VW Rabbit. It was so low it could not clear the one inch lip of the steel rim around the lower bay access in the floor. We had to back the car over the opening to get to the engine from the lower bay. His oil pan was then accessible. Now I don't think the clearance of the car was actually less than an inch, it was an unfortunate combination of the super low car, a little lip, and a not-completely-flat-or-level approach to the bay.

Still. BEGGING for trouble just like this.

It might work. I've seen them peeled off motors like you'd peel a grapefruit. It was ugly.

They don't need to be cranked down to a hundred goddamn foot pounds. They CAN, but they don't need to be.

I love this picture, it reminds me of Bill Kanuika's stories about testing his small block Chevy powered dragster
by his Dad's house on rte 352 just above Gradyville Road, around 1960.
Today you could sit there for 24 hours and not 15 minutes would go by with out seeing a car.
In daylight, fugetaboutit.

That see through car probably impressed the shit out of people in 1939. Today people would say, ho hum, it's a probably a hologram.

105 years ago...

Interesting. And cherry. So front rider steers and operates throttle and brakes, but the back seat driver gets to stir the gearshift?

Reminds me of a Honda gold wing, though I realise it's not a flat four, just the vibe I get. A proto gold wing. The archaeopteryx of motorcycles. A Dino-wing.

Looks to me like the handle bars are long enough for the rear seat, and he might be able to reach the pedals, but then where would the front seat put his legs out of the way? This is a very rare and unusual model, maybe for taking a kid along?

Here's a 1915 single seat.

This sexy beast is a Cheetah. It has a Chevy big block L-88, and was built to battle the Cobras on the race track.
Alas, it was all for naught, as everyone knows Cheetahs never win.

Sweeeet. Kinda Porsche-in the front. Overall, gives me a bit of a Gee-Bee vibe, but on wheels

I think it's a '46 because the '41s didn't have that grille on the side of the hood and the ones in between had no chrome. But it could be customised and it sure is purty. :)

And what is up with that long-ass tail pipe?

xoxoxoBruce 02-21-2017 06:33 PM

Probably a straight piece of pipe off the rack rather than a tailpipe made for the Outback.
