* It’s rather unbelievable where you can find old tin. Take, for instance, Bumpstick’s story over on the H.A.M.B. of finding a 1940 Ford buried in a ravine behind the Hollywood sign. What’s next, finding a forgotten old car at the top of the Empire State Building?
* In the March 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics, Billy Durant, founder of GM, discussed his ideas for fortune-making. All well and good – he did build up GM twice, making considerable fortunes along the way – but maybe he ought to have focused more on how to not lose a fortune than on how to make a fortune?
* Over at Dean’s Garage, Michael Lamm has an article on the Phantom Corsair, for those of you who can’t get enough of Rust Heinz’s masterpiece. Longtime blog and SIA readers will recall that Lamm also wrote up the driveReport on the Phantom Corsair for SIA #17.
* Finally, while we don’t cruise the Tiny House Blog for much material here, they recently ran an interesting article on one man’s homebuilt trailer and his reasons for building it.
