Wednesday Night Cruise In, Medina, Ohio 7/22/15

Well, c'mon, it IS a restaurant, y'know.An automotive-themed restaurant's parking lot filled with classics, customs, and hot rods is a perfect place to spend a summer evening.  Here's some of what I saw at the local Quaker Steak & Lube on a Wednesday evening not too long ago.

For starters, the Batmobile!

2015 Studebaker Drivers Club Meet, Talmadge, Ohio - Part 1

The Ohio Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club gets together in Talmadge in late August every year for what is touted, quite accurately, as the largest one-day Studebaker meet on the planet.

Studebakers! Bunches of 'em!I attended the 2015 edition last Saturday, and there was a lot to see. Too much to fit in just one post, so we'll have to spread it out over the whole week. Here's the first installment.

Carspotters’ Challenge #148: Jackson Street, Roseburg, Oregon

We’re revisiting Oregon. Last time we were there, it was 1954! But this isn’t Portland.

This time we’re visiting Jackson Street, Roseburg. The source said that it was 1950s, but I could quickly tell that it was wrong. All one has to do is look at the cars…

Carspotters’ Challenge #146: The Driver (1978), Police Chase

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Carspotters’ Video Challenge. This time we’re showing the police chase scene of the movie The Driver (1978), a cult classic movie whose iconic C-10 pick-up truck vs. Firebird Trans Am lent itself very well to one of my first Carspotters’ Video Challenge. On the same video account on which I’ve found that particular chase -as well as others- I also found this chase scene related to the movie, previously not included on said video account.

It too received a 1980s-inspired synth track -Elimination, from the album Activation, by Danger Mode- and the chase was edited for the track’s timeframe as well. Unlike the other chase, there were less videos of this particular chase. I found one, but the image’s colors aren’t that great.

Still enjoyable, though.

Carspotters’ Challenge #145: NYC Bridge Commute, 1956

Last week’s Carspotters’ Challenge focused around the Golden Gate Bridge on the West coast. I threw a question out there it if the commute ever got old and readers responded with a resounding ‘no’ plus explanation. Inspired by it, I now give you the East coast version Aside from no then/now photos, this time the bridge is unknown, at least to me, and NYC has a lot of bridges.  Tumblr_msvp3iV3LR1r9qhhio1_1280If you can identify the bridge, what’s the view/commute/experience/etc. like? If it can’t be identified, no worries. See if you can identify the cars instead.
