    I've never seen those wings above the tail lights on the shoebox. Were they factory?

    1. a veteran died today

    Ralph Nader's research was based on speculation,
    HE NEVER OWNED A CORVAIR.

    It is repeated : He never owned a car or truck.

    While the corvair is nice, Blinstrub's is more interesting. Corner of west broadway, and D street south boston. Largest club in NE. burned february 1968. 1.25 million loss, not insured. Stanley Blinstrub launched a few careers, Wayne newton for one. Spent his money on top talent, and improvments rather than insurance. Boston was considered a backwater until this place opened. this was before the arena scale performances. was not uncommon to pay 10-15k a week for 7 shows. anyone who was anybody performed here back in the day. Also note the itty bitty stop and shop down the block. this is a massive chain for anyone not from NE. the one i shopped at was prob 60x the size of this one

    yesterday was the 78th anniversary of the cocoanut grove fire. 492 dead. Second worse building fire in us history. worse was Chicago's Iroquois theater. below is Buck Jones, the singing cowboy. He made it out, and perished after going back in to save others. Too involved to get into here, but basically boiled down to greed, lack of real un-bribed inspections, flammable materials, and chained off exits. Boston and Mass now have some of the strictest firecodes in the US because of this. buck jones (died in cocoanut grove fire).jpg

    The Wake Up America Day celebrations began at midnight with a reenactment of Paul Revere's ride made by a young woman. Jean Earle Mohle, dressed as a Continental soldier, rode south through the streets of Manhattan summoning the men of America to respond to their country's call, New York Times on April 19, 1917.
