Kyle posted his dad's Super Bee on Facebook today, it's the same colors as my R/T, except it has stock rims instead of Magnum 500's

I find it remarkable to have never seen another 1969 Coronet exactly like mine until now, after 12 years of ownership. I found it impossible until now to see what it will look like with stock rims and dog dish hubcaps.

2 minor differences of the exterior, are his mud flaps, and lack of the optional rocker panel aluminum trim pieces

great art, on what appears to be the cover of Life Magazine, Jan 4th 1917. But Life magazine didn't have this on it's cover. So this is a mystery

so here are the covers of Life Magazine's 4 issues in January 1917. I don't know where I found the top image, the bottom is from http://2neat.com/magazine/product-category/life-magazine-1883-1936/life-1917/

Some ships are christened with a bottle of champagne, some bridges are smacked with a big rig trailer.

Just one hour after opening the new bridge, some moron smashed into it http://m.localnews8.com/news/crash-closes-newly-opened-dstreet-underpass/27772912

Mitch Anderson, who works at Oswald Service near the underpass, said he was helping a customer outside the auto shop when he saw the crash.

"I just turned and I was like, 'Really? Already?' You know, I can't believe,” said Anderson.

"I had a customer stop in just this morning and he was saying, 'You know, Kevin, it would be a good promotion to take bets on when the first accident's going to happen in the underpass,” said Kevin Oswald.

Idaho Falls police said the driver of the truck, 31-year-old Ryan Blatter of Idaho Falls, has been cited for inattentive driving.

LA Sheriff deputy who killed bicyclist due to emailing while driving his patrol car is immune to prosecution, not even ticketed for distracted driving

California prosecutors have declined to file charges against a sheriff's deputy Andrew Wood who was apparently distracted by his mobile digital computer when his patrol car drifted into the bike lane, stricking and killing a prominent entertainment attorney last year.

‘Wood briefly took his eyes away from the road, typing on his onboard computer in response to an email, precisely when the narrow roadway curved slightly to the left, causing him to inadvertently travel straight into the bike lane, immediately striking Olin.’

Under the law, law enforcement officials are allowed to use electronic wireless devices while carrying out their duties. The victim’s family have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Sheriff's Department and accused Wood of negligence. Olin’s loved ones also started an online petition on Change.org demanding that charges be brought against the deputy. So far, more than 67,000 people have signed.

According to the Sheriff’s Department’s own policies and procedures involving the operation of a vehicle, “members shall always employ defensive driving techniques to avoid or prevent a collision” and shall not operate vehicles “in an unsafe or negligent manner.”

In mobile digital competency tests, employees are also reminded “to use caution” while operating an MDC and that “distracted driving is inherently unsafe,” according to training documents provided by the Sheriff’s Department.

Wood, who is still a deputy, transferred shortly after the incident to court services but had made the request more than a year earlier, a department spokesman has said.


What does it look like for another cop that was driving and using his laptop?

some old hot rods are still around

Bill Lakes built this roadster, and at the time was the machine shop manager at Edelbrock, knew how to make a car fast, and good looking enough that it was the April 1950 Hot Rod Magazine feature, and won multiple records at Bonneville in both B/Roadster and B/Fendered Roadster classes (turning 144.24 and 123.84mph respectively).

Those headlights look terrible though

Notice they skip from 1969 to 2005? All the ugly 1970's King Cobra II are best forgotten I suppose
