    Dang telephone pole.
    It’s been on the road less than 10 times in the last 23 years. My uncle put a tune up on it and new brake components and parked it when I was a kid. “Less likely anything will happen to it in the driveway”, he said. He wasn’t wrong. Slant 6 car, but straight as can be. True, Southern California survivor. Completely original aside a dashboard swap with a Dart, lol.

    Custom built Ramcharger. It’s what the kids would hashtag as, #farfromstock , lol
    This is an original Walker Evans, Baja race truck from the 80s that’s been restored and completely customized.

    Here's some of the odd stuff that we get in at work. A couple weeks ago we had a front end loader in the shop. Anything for a buck. lol!
    Guess it's one way to keep a Suzuki Samauri from tipping over. The truck is a 1953 IH R-160, Kansas plates expired in 1982. Took some work but it starts and runs, brakes work again, etc. Finding some of the parts was a female dog though. I wouldn't drive it off the lot with the tires though! Not sure where the owner will find someone who'll change them on those suicide rims. Most likely he'll have to find some modern one piece wheels to replace the split rims. Waiting for a power valve for the carb though. The diaphragm has a hole in it. It's got one of those weird Holley carbs with the float bowl above the air horn, strange.............BTW, the paint looks WAY better in the photo than in person. Looks like it was sprayed with a Wagner Power Painter.
    Lastly, a random view looking WNW from our parking lot towards downtown Mosinee.

    I’ve changed tires on two and three piece widow maker wheels more times than I care to think about. Most nerve racked hours I’ve ever had in a shop; we didn’t have a tire cage come inflation. Can find them on a lot of ground service equipment at airports...I don’t miss working outside in the air field during the winters at, O’Hare though lol.
    Get to do/see some cool stuff on the cargo side of airports.
    Watching a 747 get nose loaded by our ground crew.
    Working on a Pushback tractors frozen airbrake lines under the shadow of a 777
    And the occasional race car, lol

    That IH has some wheels I've never seen before. Some kind of 2 piece split rim with a locking ring holding the two halves together. Hard to believe that design ever seemed like a good idea. I thought the rims with the lock ring on the outer edge that basically forms the outer bead surface were questionable but the IH wheels make the newer ones seem downright safe. Far as I know, nobody will touch those old wheels anymore. Probably not even the heavy truck tire places.

    Our local farm tire shop will do the split rims, one guy makes popeye look like a sissy. Hes fast too on the bigger tires, no time for the newer bead seat deal, he still uses starting fluid or laq. thinner.

    I grew up not too far from that Brady house. Ain’t ever seen no 71 satellite wagon with my own eyes before though.

    A Very Brady Restoration. I watched that series on HGTV and it was amazing how they made the interior look EXACTLY like the TV show, right down to the furnishings and accessories. Marsha, Marsha, Marsha still looks pretty good yet too. Was cool also that the Brady "kids" did a lot of the work.

    The wagon that Gas Monkey built made me think that's what the family wagon would have been if it got handed down to Greg in the show, lol.

    One of these just opened over in Weston. Nice to see a building with some architectural style to it once in a while. So many new buildings (and houses too) are boring, bland, and generic.
