Fun Pics

I saw this out on a bike ride recently. Just how am I to cross at the intersection without going past the closed sidewalk?

Someone parked this awesome Buick Eight in the parking lot next to my building on campus. Here is more information about the Buick Eight, which featured an inline 8 cylinder engine and an early automatic transmission called Dynaflow. Here’s a great print ad for the car on Plan59, a for profit repository of historic American print advertisements. The car doesn’t change color from one picture to the next, it’s my cell phone camera trying to white balance the image. The perspective photos have more accurate color than the close-ups.

I want portholes on my Volvo.

  1. Sometimes called “Ventiports”. Actual holes originally, fake later. Not always round. And you could tell the model because the most expensive Buick got 4 per side, lesser models 3 per side. We could put 5 per side on your Volvo — want real holes or just something stuck on with double-sided tape?

  2. Umm… that’s a fairly random comment, from someone I don’t know. It’s unassociated with the content of this posting. Always my favorite kind of comment. On the slim chance that “Tropicfreak” actually comes back to check the answer: no, I’m in San Diego. Are you in Fiji?
