Picture Time with Dad: Fire Aero in 1984 Picture Time with Dad: Fire Aero in 1984

My dad broke out the slide projector this weekend, and we had a marvelous time travel journey through my family’s history in pictures. The projection screen has been lost to history, so we settled on a less-than-optimal taupe wall in the living room. (Think of it as the ultimate you-can’t-copy-this Instagram filter.)…

Classic Automotive Hardware on the Big Island Classic Automotive Hardware on the Big Island

Went to a farmer’s market on the Big Island. These three pulled up together and parked. I don’t know much about these kinds of things, but they looked clean, if not special.

A few of the sights, for your enjoyment.

Went to London over the New Year. Stopped in the epicenter of transportation coolness, the Bond In Motion exhibit at the London Film Museum. Some photo love for ya here.

Extra points if power-slid into this position, right?

Local Motoring in Arizona Local Motoring in Arizona

When in Arizona, motor like the locals. Local Motors running ‘BUILDME’ license plate. I’m thinking this car drives to the factory on a daily basis, right?

Cargo Van Living, In Style Cargo Van Living, In Style

This guy has the right idea. Great mod. At 6'2", I don’t think I would fit into that bed, but OMG look at those fold out panels!

Volvo-curious millionaires, take note!  Volvo-curious millionaires, take note! 

This is delicious on so many levels. Artificial scarcity is the best kind of scarcity.

A woman's place...in a Hollywood Mercedes A woman's place...in a Hollywood Mercedes

I’ll post one of these gems from the collection every now and then. Some are pure automotive marketing historical genius. Others would instantly end present day…

Hot Mini-on-Mini Action Hot Mini-on-Mini Action

No, literally. This was a blazing 110 degree-day in Arizona. Either the back Mini was pushing, or the front Mini was pulling. Did not get a good enough look. Either way: Hot Mini-on-Mini Action.
