Daughter’s connection to her late father grows like his roses

She thought of roses, her father’s roses. “Why don’t you grow them?” her friend asked. “You seem to have this fascination.” She explained that she couldn’t possibly grow roses. Roses require patience, which she has never had. That’s how it started. Marsha Buford had no idea she was about to experience the most amazing coincidence in the middle of a pandemic. It was April 10, about a month into the coronavirus lockdown. Marsha and her friend Darnell Elzy walked past Orange Lutheran High School th...

Robert Cringely Attempts an Air-Launching Space Startup

"How does a 67-year-old hack with three minor children recover from going blind, losing his home and business in a horrible fire (like 2,000 others, we are still fighting with insurance companies), while appeasing an angry crowd of Kickstarter supporters armed with pitchforks and shovels?" That crowd still wants long-time tech pundit Robert X. Cringely to deliver on his Kickstarter-funded project to create custom Minecraft servers. So in a new blog post this week, Cringely writes that "I went ...

Fossil deposit is much richer than expected

Near the Dutch town of Winterswijk is an Eldorado for fossil lovers. A student at the University of Bonn has now analyzed pieces from museums and private collections for his master's thesis. He found an amazing amount of almost completely preserved skeletons, between 242 and 247 million years old. The good condition is presumably due to particularly favorable development conditions. These make Winterswijk a cornucopia for paleontology. The study is published in the Paläontologische Zeitschrift.

1956 Cadillac View Master, built by Hess & Eisenhardt. Photos courtesy Owls Head Transportation Museum.

Enter coachbuilder Hess & Eisenhardt, that began building Cadillac woodie station wagons in extremely low volumes in 1955, carrying production over into 1956. Of 19 that were built, just seven View Master woodies are known to remain, ...

An Interview with John Staluppi, Owner of the Cars of Dreams Collection to be Sold at Barrett Jackson in April, 2018.

For nearly fifteen years, TV viewers of the popular Barrett-Jackson collector car auction have come to know John Staluppi for his solid taste in post-WWII American collector cars and his fierce ability to knock out virtually any opponent with a seven-figure bid.

This Mustang-Turned-Supercar Packs An 800HP Kaase Ford Hemi!

Jon Darbyshire’s “Archer 520FX” ’69 Fastback melds the best of old and new. In recent times, the business coupe has changed. Traveling salesmen defined the body style while stuffing their wares in stripped down, rear-seatless coupes. The lack of options and seats meant that the cars were thrifty and traded passengers for inventory. Practicality was the key, allowing for the spread of consumer culture in America before the advent of department store catalogs and the impending takeover from the i...

The B-52s and a tour of their old Athens, GA haunts (1989)

In 1989, to promote their fifth studio album, Cosmic Thing, the B-52s took MTV viewers on a tour of the city where they formed: Athens, Georgia ((sadly, without guitarist Ricky Wilson who died of AIDS in 1985). They began at the now-defunct Bluebird Cafe, formerly named the Eldorado, a vegetarian eatery where Fred Schneider used to wait tables. From there, they continued their Athens excursion, first from the back of a convertible and then by walking the streets. As the story goes, the b...
