NRL Grand Final
Those are always fun.
Don't much like the American "muscle" cars, to be honest, nor most of the typical contemporary (>1970) vehicles. But some of the classic originals, from decades prior, are amazing.
Recently, a '26 Ford pickup was sold, original 9Kmi with a reupholstered seat that was otherwise completely unmolested. (Would have to know a good machinist, for that one, given sparse parts availability.) And a Willys CJ2 in original condition. Almost makes a person want to pick up a new hobby.
Here's a fun drinking game. Take a shot everytime Kanye brings God into the mix.
And to think, most of that American muscle could have been had on the cheap in the mid to late 80's. Back when I had no money.
Knew a guy around '80 who had a classic '66 Mustang. A buddy had a decent '65. Both in their teens, and neither car was spendy. Most seem to have a Beetle, or a nondescript early-'70s Detroit nothing-mobile, or similar. $1K about that time could have picked up a decent pre-owned Alfa GT 1750 which, "souped" up, could wax a lot of cars on the road. These days, any of these in good condition would command a few $bills.
Same here, was just starting my contracting career and was making really good $$$ but traveling around the country...
There is a little bit of everything at those auctions, personally I like the Mecum auctions because they have more variety, even old motorcycles.
Some of the bikes from the inter-war years (or earlier) are something. Like, oh, a 1912 Indian, for example. A bit like a Colson Flyer bicycle, but with an engine.
Don't really care for the wax guys auctions. Too much "Look how wonderful we are with our charity" stuff. Not enough detail on the cars themselves.
Former Memphis Redbird Randy Arozarena rewriting baseball's post season record book.
Apparently the copywrites expired so I've been binge watching on Footube.
Ian shooting an Erma Sub-machinegun.
Excellent. Nice choice.
Alfred Hitchcock Presents is probably one of the better programs ever crafted. Great storytelling, interesting topics, notable actors ... and, of course, pretty decent direction.
I've got the full collection on DVD, somewhere. Definitely worth watching, now and then.
Sanford and Son. Takes me back to my good old days. Twilight Zone then Alfred Hitchcock at 3 am let out the dogs wake up time. Hunting shows aren't much these days - fiberglass "stands" shooting critters under feeders has no appeal to me.
The Wrecking Crew -- a 2008 documentary film about a group of amazing studio musicians in Los Angeles that were the backbone of a serious chunk of the "hit" pop music in the 1960's and early 1970's. Fascinating.
