A Shameless Ploy For Eyeballs

See the source image

From a Pinterest site, a picture of Cristy Lee. She is a co-host of Velocity’s All Girls Garage and appears (too infrequently for me) on the Barrett-Jackson telecasts. As the post title suggests I am using her picture to boost readership. Of course, if no one knows about this site in the first place then posting a picture of a beautiful woman is probably not going to help. If you enjoy this site, please tell your friends to read. Thanks. Who knows, maybe I’ll post more pictures of Cristy Lee. 🙂

One of my favorite pieces on Hemmings, the subtitle is “Dozens of American car brands have been orphaned since the end of World War II. Why?” All of the “significant” US car makes that went out of business since the end of WWII are listed with some data (e.g. number of cars sold after the war) and a one-paragraph recount/explanation of what happened. How does that saying go? Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Speaking of Hemmings:

A picture of a fully restored 1955 Packard 400 offered by a private seller on Hemmings at $65,000 firm. As a matter of principle I would never do business with someone who states up front that they have no intention to negotiate. It is a beautiful car, though.
