  1. Yep, could have told you the location. Unforgettable to me.
  2. Front clip design of that 1957 Simca Aronde appears to be the genesis of the 1960-61 Sunbeam Alpine.
  3. Was $200K and then marked down to $125K. Wonder what the actual sale price was.
  4. That Falcon Ranchero did not come out until 1957, but it looks like a 1960 to me. I guess that is "circa" enough for me.
  5. If you watch the You tube video that FINS post he was asked how many employees he had. Luiz's response was three - "Me, myself and I" The sport already lost Luiz - that is bad enough. Loss would be even greater if Yachtscoring did not continue.
  6. Yes, arête means that. However, the boat owner calls his vessel Arete' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arete "...a concept in ancient Greek thought that, in its most basic sense, refers to "excellence" of any kind.[1] The term may also mean "moral virtue".[1] In its earliest appearance in Greek, this notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one's full potential." Think they proved that yesterday.
  7. As of 03:00 UTC Arete' was 22.3 NM due west of the island and about ready to start heading east. Sorry, but I missed the start time. Anyone have that?
  8. Guessing they will be in at 04:25 UTC, i.e. 12:25 EDST. What finish time do they need to break the record?
  9. From the verdict link above. Humphrey noted Tuesday that security videos taken from the O'Leary and Edwards cottages "make it clear" the Nautique's lights were not on when the boats came into contact. "The purpose of the venture into the open waters of Lake Joseph by Mr. Edwards and his guests was to acquire an unobstructed view of the night sky without interference from artificial light," the judge said. "It defies logic to suggest they would have travelled to that location and activated the lights, the effect of which would have been to defeat their purpose." Ruh [Nau
  10. Looked like Detroit to me too. My boyhood home did not fare as well as that one. The black and white photo is my grandfather’s home on the far east side of Detroit, circa 1940. I will appear in about 10 years and live there for the first 20 years of my life. It was built in the late nineteen-teens on a 30’ wide lot and will be torn down prior to the turn of the century. The aerial view shows my old neighborhood. Local demographers cite it as an “Urban Prairie.” This is what is left when 1,200,000 people move to the suburbs. To the left (west) of the green line are/were auto f
  11. Let’s talk about local knowledge and context. The video is looking south (downbound) from a camera on the USA side of the St. Clair River in the shadow of the Blue Water Bridge. Conditions: · Wind is from N (360*) at 7.0 kts at the nearest NOAA station. · Current is running at 6.0 kts under the bridge · CUYAHOGA is heading upbound at 11.2 kts, so apparent wind is 18.2 kts · Sailboat is heading/drifting downbound in 6.0 kts of current, so apparent wind is 1.0 +/- kts At 0:48 the fun really starts. Notice the raised bridge in t
  12. Silver bike looks like a Honda CB900F from the early 1980s with a custom seat and tank. Could also be a 1983 CB1100F with Euro-spec headlight and guages. USA spec 1100F had rectangular headlamp in a small fairing. So tend to think 900F with Comstar rims.
  13. Me too. Originally Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, Michigan Stove commissioned the building of a giant wooden replica of a Garland stove. It was at the entrance to the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle on Jefferson Avenue for many years. Then is was moved the to State Fair Grounds on Woodward Avenue and Eight Mile Road. It was burned to the ground by a lightning strike
  14. Christmas Cove Beach, MI - near the very tip of the Leelanau Peninsula.
