This is kind of long(6 min), and kind of slow, Chevy introduction of their new engine lineup for 1955. The numbers, acceleration times, gas mileage, I thought were interesting, and even funny compared to today. However I know not everyone would be interested, that's why it's in Rims rather than Ye Olde Video.

Yeah, yeah, get that rolling roadblock outta the way, put to some good use, like a bar or sumthin'.

BigV 09-03-2015 08:43 AM

A rolling dive bar, niiiice. I see it has Washington plates. Food trucks are stupidly popular around here these days. I would like to find this one.

Those aren't the same vehicle, I don't know where the bar bus is, but Mr 52hp is one of the hippies living up in the corner. I heard a rumor that the only reason the government allows them to live is when Canada invades the stoned will be cannon fodder slowing the Canucks.

The guys with the spears aren't helping, must be guards, the royal escort. I think the logs to carry it are as heavy as the car.

Saw this ad for Ruckstell two speed rears for a Ford Model TT (model T truck). I've seen these rears, they were the hot set up, but the endorsement caught my eye.

The picture shows a TT loaded with two huge logs, bigger than most of the South Carolina pines these days. The caption, 12,660 lbs of wet lumber. Trees are only lumber in the loosest sense, but acceptable. That would make me think that's what he's was pulling. Not an unreasonable number, but it doesn't show the length. Then he says six trips per day, which makes me wonder if that's 12,660 lbs per day? Did they have shady Mad Men back then?

I'm very surprised the hose was that strong. I thought they had break-away sections that also shut down the pump so gas wouldn't spew all over the place until the attendant realized what was going on and shut down the pump.

A little poking around shows the break-away hoses don't always work right.

Intel Security has published a white paper(PFD) on hacking cars of the future.
Not cures, but reminders to designers and manufactures, what they'll have to contend with in their designs.

Pamela 09-15-2015 08:50 PM

That reminds me to finish hardening my car against hackerz. I have disabled OnStar and some other points of attack but have not gone into the computer to disable some others.

Jeep, used...

classicman 09-17-2015 07:41 PM

About 30 years or so ago ... It was January or February - very cold... I was, as always at that point in my life, stoned out of my mind. It was late at night after working a 10 hr shit at Bennigan's and then partying at a friends. I stopped to get gas. I paid the man - put the nozzle in the car and it was so cold, I got in my car to stay warm. Well that lasted about ten seconds when I then drove away. It wasn't until the next morning I realized the handle/nozzle was still sticking out of my car. No damage at all to my vehicle.

Not rims, per se, but, tires:

Yokohama Rubber Advancing Tire Aerodynamics Technology - With fins. On the tires.


Tokyo –The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that it has made new advances in tire aerodynamics technology that control the air flow around tires in motion. The new development reduces vehicle aerodynamic drag and lift. Application of the new technology could lead to the development of new tires that will raise fuel efficiency and increase vehicle safety.

xoxoxoBruce 10-15-2015 08:05 PM

The dimples make sense, they work well on a golf ball. But I'd like to know how big these fins are? Any tire that stays the same shape at the top and bottom of it's revolution must come with a kidney belt.

Oh, and it the real world, the tires on the curb side of the car won't have fins for long. :haha:

Gravdigr 10-16-2015 01:12 PM

Meh, if they made white letters last as long as they did, fins should be a lead pipe cinch.

A couple guys in France have been working for eight years to develop this, but don't have the money to go into production, or develop a two seater.
