Crazy intersection in EthiopiaTHE MOST AMAZING INTERSECTION! This is what a major intersection with no traffic lights looks like. How they are able to avoid accidents is quite remarkable. In this time lapse video we see the intersection at Meskel Square, the nerve center of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. While the square is a primary site for the city's large festivals and celebrations, it is also a chaotic crossroad for thousands and thousands of vehicles daily This is organised confusion at its finest. Pedestrians, walk with care! – Submitted by Pat & Richard G.l 12-2014

Copper '40 FordKirkham Motorsports started in 1994 with the mission to build the finest replicas in the world. It all began when brothers, David and Thomas Kirkham, were restoring their own Cobra,CSX3104. This car is a Copper '40 Ford: The 40GT is a special project that combines the running gear of a 2005 Ford GT with the stunning good looks of a '40 convertible body made of pure copper. Although the body is pure copper, the car weighs less than the GT and in theory it should be faster to 100mph.
George Klass Street RoadstersGEORGE KLASS REMEMBERS...STREET ROADSTERS: The NHRA Street Roadster classes were very simular to the Gasser classes, with the obvious exception that instead of coupes and sedans, the S/R classes had no tops. Most of them also used small fenders, or stock type fenders in the rear and motorcycle type fenders in the front. Headlights were required. The engines and the weight per cubic inch formulas were very simular to the Gasser classes. If you loved the Gasser classes, you probably also loved the Street Roadster classes. Great photos.

Scores Of New Chevys Stored For Decades Undriven Finally Up For SaleLambrecht Chevrolet of Pierce, Neb., was like many Midwestern, small-town dealers — owned and operated by a family, with minimal overhead and little need for advertising since most customers were neighbors. Ray and Mildred Lambrecht ran the dealership with just one employee for 50 years before closing up, and later this year the Lambrechts will sell off a trove of 500-odd vehicles they've held onto over the decades — including roughly 50 with less than 10 miles on their odometers. It's less a car sale than a time capsule auction.
2 Day Auction September 28th-29th, 2013 includes online auction.

Larry Griswold This is a really old video from November 13, 1951. The show host is a young Frank Sinatra. On this episode was the comedian, Larry Griswold. The video and sound quality is not High Definition. It was made back during the pioneer years of television. Most television was live, so this is very rare to have anything preserved on film. This was back when humor wasn't dirty.-Submitted by Mike M. 1-2012

Gasoline commercialHere's a link to a Shell commercial shown in Europe. Ferrari pulled several of their race cars from various ages out of storage, flew them around the world and filmed them running through the streets of Rome, Rio, New York, Hong Kong, Honolulu and Monaco . No computer graphics these are the original cars on the original streets. The best part is the sound from the basso-profundo notes of the early, front-engine era, each scene cuts to a later generation, ending with the wail of a modern F1 car. There's just something about 3 liters and 14,000 RPM ! - Submitted by Mel H. 2-2012

Plastic into OIlPlastic back into the oil it came from. Not surprised at this at all, just a case of Japanese ingenuity and perseverance. What is more important would be the marketing and very low cost to make it mandatory to have one of these in every home. Better yet, a large industrial up-scaling of the device. This video is all in Japanese. Just read the subtitles and watch. What a great discovery!
