Keep This Under Your Hood!

Keep This Under Your Hood!

Stumbled upon this fantastic Ford parts and service film from 1940. It’s rare to see a fully animated dealer informational clip from this era, as most automotive films were live action or employed still images to save cost. The animation here is top notch, as we witness the genuine Ford […]

For the last couple of days, I’ve been in a living hell – suffering over the screen of my computer as I switch windows between Excel, PayPal, Wells Fargo, USAA, E-Trade, blah, blah, and blah. I can feel life slowly being sucked out of my fingers as I type away […]

Ryan’s recent post on Stefan Marjoram inspired me to share another great sketch artist who has a keen eye for all things mechanical, both by land and by air. Jay Shuster is best known as the sketch artist who designed the Anikin Podracer for Star Wars Episode I and the […]

Invention of the week: The Park-Car…

How about 5th wheel/ spare tire steering for your Cadillac? Makes it easy to slide that large lead sled into inaccessible garages or those pesky, tight parking spots! The announcer says it takes power from the driveshaft, but I wonder if that’s to lower the wheel down and raise the […]

It’s Not Friday, but… Stefan Marjoram

I’ve been following Stefan’s blog for a while now. He’s one of those people that just gets form, ya know? He draws lots of things, but seems to focus on the shape of power. His viewpoint intrigues me… It’s crisp, clean, and modern, but he draws old shit. I can’t […]

Chuck Jordan’s 5 Greatest Hits…

Chuck Jordan’s 5 Greatest Hits…

Many of you may already know that the last of the great GM Styling Chiefs, Chuck Jordan, passed away back in December. I thought it was worth raising a glass to five of the finest General Motors (pre 70s) auto designs under his watch. These are just my opinion, so […]
