The Stinson Black Crow

Stock car racing over 100 years ago.

1910 Elgin National Trophy Race

The relationship between automakers and the race track has always been with us.
I found a record of this car in a couple of races, they may not be the one mentioned in the ad.
This ad says “No Mechanical Troubles” the race results I found say it did not finish.

It’s Not Pink! It’s Magenta.

The Last Ride

Motorcycle Hearses

I ride with the Patriot Guard Riders when I can.
We attend veteran and first responder funerals.
I’ve been wondering about motorcycle hearses, I’ve never seen one in person.
Here are some pics of what I’ve found.

I was surprised at how many variations there were.
Also that there are several companies manufacturing them.

I’d like a send off like this.

Dodge Deora

The Deora is a 1965 Dodge A100 pickup truck that was heavily customized by Mike and Larry Alexander

Mike and Larry Alexander built Deora the for the 1967 Detroit Autorama. After winning many awards, including the highly-prestigious Ridler in 1967, it became the prototype for a Hot Wheels car and plastic model kit. It was sold at auction in 2009 for $324,500.
