* Our friend Geoff Hacker over at Forgotten Fiberglass has a deep interest in more than just the FRP-bodied mid-century homebuilts; really, any homebuilt sports cars appeal to him, including this mysterious aluminum-bodied, Kaiser-chassised Gisler that he recently featured, owned by Scott Perrott. Almost nothing is known about the car, and all that is – the Gisler name – comes from the badge on the nose of the car. So who’s heard of a Gisler before?
* While we’re on the topic of unidentified cars, the forum denizens at coachbuild.com have been testing each other with mystery cars lately, and have come up with a few even they can’t identify, such as the four-door above with a very unique roof structure (so unique, I’m not sure what to call it – quarter-landaulette?).
* Last year about this time, we came across some of Terri Hollenbeck’s photos from her childhood as Andy Brizio’s daughter, and now she’s back on the H.A.M.B. with more photos, mostly taken by Andy Southard Jr., mostly of the Instant T.
* The photo above is fairly iconic to anybody who follows space exploration history, depicting the Apollo 12 astronauts in mobile quarantine after returning from the moon. But what happened to the Airstream itself? Can you believe it was almost cut up for scrap? Jesse, the just a car guy, has more.
* As our man TA did a couple years ago, Austin at Man on the Move recently visited Kanter’s warehouse, where he got to see not only Fred Kanter’s Packard collection, but also Woody Allen’s bubble car from Sleepers and several other oddities Fred’s accumulated through the years.
