Well, I'm going to be taking a bit of a "blog break" for the next couple of days...Tomorrow is actually my burf day and I'm planning to get away from everything for a few days...I'll be back on Monday posting more nonsense, so please continue to visit this place whenever you feel like wasting a few seconds! haha...

Anyway, hope everyone has a good weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Lego Ferrari F1!

This is crazy...Apparently this "Ferrari F1" that's built out of Lego's can actually be driven...I haven't seen any video's of that, but none-the-less, I think it's pretty neat:

Who says the Italian police department doesn't have style??

Something a little different...

Found these on the web recently...An artist (couldn't find their name) apparently makes art sculptures out of real paper money...What they create vary differently from piece to piece, but I thought the ones below were pretty neat:

Tiki Tuesday!

For some reason, I love tiki's and tiki related stuff...I used to post a tiki pic or two on here every Tuesday, but got lazy with that...Found this really neat tiki mug on the net that's made by VanTiki and thought I'd post it:

Everyone loves the Fett!

They don't make 'em like they used to!

Too bad HD doesn't make factory built stuff like this anymore!

1931 Harley-Davidson Factory Speedway Special built with a prototype engine and frame...This bike was raced by Molenaar Harley-Davidson of Hammond Indiana:

OK, finalalized sticker design...

Completed! Made a small change to the image that you saw below...Actually, just took the dash out between the words Hold Fast...I think it looks a little cleaner that way...So, that's pretty much it as far as the final design goes...I'll be having a run printed up this week and like I said below, I hope to have them in hand sometime in mid-November...If you want any, better email me now; surprisingly, they're going pretty quick, which makes me happy!

Hope you guys dig 'em as much as I do!

Gotta start Monday at some point!


So I've gotten a ton of emails about the stickers that I'm making for this blog...Actually, I wasn't really expecting to hear anything, but have been blown away by the response...THANK YOU!

Anyway, I'm going to double my original order, because I want to make sure everyone that checks my blog out gets at least a few...So, with that said, if you're wanting a few stickers, go ahead and email me with your name and address...My blog email address is over on the right side of this page under my profile...Click profile and you'll find it there...easy!

And, I've had a lot of questions about the stickers too; nope, not charging for them and the postage is on me...Doesn't cost much to stick a few stickers in an envelope anyway! haha...

Anyway, thank you guys again for checking out my blog on a semi regular basis...I really appreciate it!


Name that plane...

Recently saw this plane parked on the second level of the USS Yorktown which is now docked at Patriot's Point, SC...I like WW2 naval related history and this plane had a ton of it...Know what kind of airplane this is going by the pic??

I decided to go ahead and make some stickers for my blog...Mainly, because I personally like stickers, but also to share a little something with everyone that checks this place out on a regular basis...And THANKS for that!...

I'm doing a somewhat limited run of these stickers for my blog, SO, if you want some, shoot me an email (my email address is under my profile) with your name and address and I'll get 'em in the mail to you as soon as I have them in hand...Probably two weeks or so...I really like the final design, hope you guys do as well and personally want to thank Chris Luder for his help in making this possible:

Ice cold...!

Found this while surfing the net today...I thought it was pretty neat...AK-47 ice cube tray! I like guns...and I like my drinks cold...Best of both worlds!

Crazy Audi concept vehicle!

Not sure if it's a boat...or?? Maybe it'll be some kind of hover craft?? haha!

Woolery Bullet!

Evel Knievel's 1970 XR750 Jump Bike

I once heard Evel Knievel say that he could ride a wheelie on a motorcycle until all the oil drained from the oil tank and the motor seized up...haha!

A little interesting history on the 1939 MWA...

I'm sure you've seen the pics posted over at ChopperDave's, but I had a little history to go along with the pics as well...

Read on:

It was built in 1939 by Mark Anthony (in Tyler Texas) as an experimental prototype for Harley, that unfortunately never made it into production...As you can see, it's a single cylinder Knucklehead motor, built with a unit trans and engine case...The claim behind this motor was that it had less than half of the moving parts of a 61 inch HD OHV motor...It was also originally thought that Anthony planned to share his design with Federal Mogul and the Schwinn Bicycle Company...

Anthony built this 30+ cubic inch motor in 1940, using parts machined from his design and additional parts from a 1939 HD...In August of 1942 he received a patent on the design from the US Patent Dept...He also stated that the motor was capable of doing 80+ and could cruise at 60 mph all day long...

Anthony stopped working on production of this bike due to World War 2 and never made another one like it...The bike was ridden around Texas for many years following Anthony's death and eventually ended up sitting in a barn for many years in west Texas...

It's now on display at The Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC...If you're in the area, check the place out!

Very, very neat and talk about the barn find of all time!!

1946 HD WR...

Original, in as raced condition 1946 Harley WR...Ridden by Babe Tancrede from 1946-1949 and has been confirmed as the last motorcycle that Tancrede raced...From Woonsocket, Rhode Island...

45 ci factory ball bearing powered motorcycle which was 1 of only 100 ever built...
