Below are links to content that has been sent to me by various friends...you guys know who you are...Allan C, Gerry S. John S, Vince M, Wolf R, Tom P and many others. If you get a cool e-mail with a cool story about a car or hot rods or driving, racing, literally anything a Carnut may be interested in. So take a look and have some fun as most of these are fairly humourous...

Some very cool racing footage of Graham Hill and Dan Gurney from Speedvision's "Legends of Motorsport"
When I was researching the Shelby King Cobra for the Portrait I was working on I came across two amazing articles on a really cool website called www.davemacdonald.net
These two articles document a race at Augusta and the Bahama Speed Week.
December 1-6, 1963 - Shelby American take their red hot King Cobra's to the Bahamas to run the Nassau Speed Weeks.
March 1, 1964 - US Road Racing Championship at Augusta Georgia.
Shelby American brought two Cobra Roadsters and two King Cobras to Augusta International Raceway for two seperate USRRC races. Dave MacDonald & Ken Miles ran in both.
I have archived the two articles in case the website ever gets removed.

The evils of Rain cannot be understated. This fellow has 2 cool Ferraris, so had someone else drive this car home and a a bit of rain ruined the drive. This happened a short distance from the Supercar Show at Van Dusen Gardens.

1913 Tire Of Technology
On this day, Louis Henry Perlman of New York received a patent for the first demountable tire-carrying rim. Until Perlman's invention, changing a tire meant changing the wheel.
So this is the Dude that got Bling-Bling type 22" rims started!!!

1969 The Rise and Fall of John DeLorean (Frosty the Snowman....)
On this day in 1969, John DeLorean was named the top executive at Chevrolet. DeLorean had risen precipitously through the ranks at Pontiac, where he pioneered the successful GTO and Grand Prix models. As the general manager of Chevrolet, DeLorean sold a record 3,000,000 cars and trucks in 1973. Poised as a top candidate for the presidency of General Motors (GM), DeLorean walked away from Chevrolet in late 1973 to start his own company.
This is all you really need to know about this serious carnut. Apparently his new car company didn't go so well

1921 Record-Setting Taxi Driver

Carmen Fasanella of Princeton, New Jersey, obtained his cab driver's license at the tender age of 17. Mr. Fasanella would go on to drive his taxi for the next 68 years and 243 days, setting an unofficial record for the longest continuous career for a cabbie.
It is interesting to note that modern Cab drivers pay respect to this great cab hero by not showering so they smell like they have been driving for 68 years.

June 5 1951

T-Top patent is issued

Gordon M. Buehrig was issued a U.S. patent for his "vehicle top with removable panels," an invention that would eventually appear as a "T-top" on the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Buehrig was one of the early automobile stylists. Buehrig was one of the first choosen by Harley Earl for General Motors' (GM) new Art and Colour Section. He also was responsible for getting rid of running boards...but his boss first got the credit.

It is unknown if the rumours are true, that before the t-roof thing he invented a spray that removed the mildew smell from Automobile carpets that got wet from leaky roofs, and it did not sell well until 1968 with introduction of the first T-roofs on Corvettes...

1979 Yeeeeeee-Haw-Ralphhhh!!!!

The Dukes of Hazzard, a prime-time television action/comedy show, aired for the first time on this day. However, the real star of the show was their car, "The General Lee," a 1969 Dodge Charger with a bright orange paint job and a Confederate flag on its roof. The car was a suitable choice: Dodge Chargers won 22 of the 54 major NASCAR races in 1969. The Dukes of Hazzard ran for seven seasons.

As a young adult carnut in 1979 I never watched a full show of the "Dukes" but was repulsed from just watching the commercials. As an older Adult that just finished watching the "Barrett Jackson" I am repulsed by all the Chargers they wrecked....if only they had used 1972 era Chargers....the world would be a better place!!!

November 23
1897 Olds Issued Patent For "Motor Carriage"

On this day, Ransom Eli Olds of Lansing, Michigan, is issued a U.S. patent for his "motor carriage," a gasoline-powered vehicle that he constructed the year before. In 1887, when he was only 18, Olds built his first automobile, a steam-propelled three-wheeled vehicle.

This first vehicle built buy the young Ransom was called the 4-3-2 and was aimed at the younger sportier steam Crowd. 4-3-2 stood for 4 gallons of water...3 wheels...2 horsepower.

1973 - The Oil Embargo is only 5 days old and Toyota held its first national news conference in Los Angeles, to highlight the remarkable fuel efficiency of their cars...no one likes a smart ass. This of course prompted Ford and GM to bring out their own fuel efficient Pinto and Vega. That sure showed them Japanese!!! More>>

1996 Art Car

The Museum of Modern Art in New York City placed a Jaguar E-Type in its permanent exhibit. The E-Type was just the third car to be honored by the curators of the museum's permanent exhibit. Released in 1961, the E-Type was the first model released by Jaguar Motors after a disastrous fire destroyed the company's production facilities in 1957. The car's sleek lines made it an immediate success. Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons first made an impact in the automobile industry when he bolted a car body he designed onto the frame of an Austin Seven Car. His car, the Austin Swallow, was so successful that Lyons determined to manufacture his own automobiles. The E-Type is the epitome of Jaguar's exquisite feel for body design. The car is literally a work of art.

I am betting that this is probably the first work of art to have a drip pan!!!

phoenix. A bird in Egyptian mythology that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire, later to rise renewed from its ashes. Thank heavens for the phoenix...or some other mythical creature to save the company. I am thinking that many times during the 70's 80's and 90's Management got together to figure out how they could burn the place down and start over fresh...it worked before!!!
