Making Progress

Making Progress

Polished and ready for wax. If only it wasn’t so damn hot out I’d be more willing to do more at a time. Gotta say I haven’t really hated the cleaning process but I’m not in a hurry to do it all again. It's not exactly a color that cleans up well but the effort has made a difference.

This has been a lot of work for one car show.

Welp, let's get cleaning

Welp, let's get cleaning

I kinda hate washing cars as the current status of the paint on the lancia will confirm. Will be doing a clean and clay bar today followed by some black trim restorer on the nose. I have a compound and wax to do tomorrow.

Other projects included finally reattaching the broken passenger side mirror and repainting the wiper arms which were down to bare (and blinding) metal.

London Motor Show 1950

London Motor Show 1950

Pretty big crowd. Half these companies don’t even exist anymore, I think.

Guys, I'm not sure AMC is doing too well

Guys, I'm not sure AMC is doing too well

Just going through some old pictures. This AMC specialist/dealer(?) is from Las Vegas, NM in 2012. Google streetview shows that all but the main sign have been picked as of 2016.

It’s directly across the street from this beautiful old hotel which swas empty then but has since been restored and reopened just this month, apparently. http://castanedahotel.org/

How's the Steam Summer Sale treating your wallet?

How's the Steam Summer Sale treating your wallet?

I’ve added Battlestar Galactica Deadlock, Divinity: Original Sin 2, and the Endless Legend Collection to the library. Probably could have saved a few bucks by not getting the collection packages but overall I’m pretty pleased with everything. Cutting myself off at that, though.

Really enjoying BSG Deadlock. It gets the style and feel of the BSG universe just right. Still early on in the...

Down on the GeoGuessr: Um, what?

Down on the GeoGuessr: Um, what?

What else do you expect to find outside an old Norwegian coastal defense battery? Just two people fighting in immersion suits(?) and a golf club. Totally normal, carry on.

Looks like a really cool place to visit. These are some big guns.

Continental Radial Tank Engine

Continental Radial Tank Engine

The interwar period was a strange time for technological development. What we have here is an air cooled 9-cylinder radial engine was for use in an M4 Sherman according to the owner. While searching for suitable engines for armored vehicles in the 1930s these radials were found to be the only thing powerful enough and were found many of the US army’s homegrown armor up to and including WW2....

Fiat 2000

Fiat 2000

Before the Fiat 124 spider became the Fiat 2000 there was another vehicle to use the name. The Fiat 2000 was a heavy tank designed for WW1 but never saw service there and only 2 were ever completed. While they were sent to Libya to enforce Italian colonial rule they were practically useless. One was left in Libya while one was sent home to Italy although the ultimate fates of either is unknown.

Even if you haven’t heard of it, there’s a good chance you’ve seen it before. The Nivolet Pass is the site for the last scenes in the original Italian Job

Colorado Oppo Meet: Automezzi XXIX?

Colorado Oppo Meet: Automezzi XXIX?

https://automezzicolorado.com/

I’m still planning on at least attending the Automezzi although I haven’t heard back from work if my time off request has been approved.

Anyone planning on attending the Automezzi this year? It’s come a long way from a parking lot behind Casa Bonita a decade ago and is a pretty impressive show if a bit taken over by Ferrari at this point. Still debating on...

90s Toyota bait

Some of you like these Paseo coupes, right? It’s actually a really good looking car, nothing flashy or anything, just looks good.

Anyone need a truck? Maybe a DKW?

Anyone need a truck? Maybe a DKW?

Owner is clearing out their collection and these are all for sale. They’re all a bit rough.

Wasn’t expecting to find a DKW in a field in Craig, Colorado, either.

Jessica Jones Season 3 dropped today!

Jessica Jones Season 3 dropped today!

I knew it was coming this month but didn’t know it was today! Oh, I have to be at work in 5 hours. Damn. Hopefully it’s quiet this weekend and I can catch up.

The first season is one of my favorite series ever. I don’t think the second was nearly as good but I have high hopes for 3

It's a tank!

It's a tank!

I love tanks. This here is an M47 Patton powered by a 29L air-cooled, twin-turbo, V12 Diesel. The museum has a spare engine that they are hoping to put in sometime after they complete restoration on a 1915 Stevens-Duryea. It was a good day.

Not a bad view either.

Video I found of the Duryea project.
