* Over on Autoholics, the latest evolution of the CarDomain blog, FuryPaul recently posted photos of his trip to the Owls Head Transportation Museum, where he spotted this Model T modified for railroad track inspection. It’s the cowcatcher that we dig the most.
* Jesse, the Just a Car Guy guy, recently sat down for a viewing of “The Ballad of Cable Hogue” and spotted the Leslie Special from “The Great Race” making an appearance in the later movie. RIP, Blake Edwards.
* In the early 1930s, smarting from the Depression, Harley-Davidson sold an entire factory, along with the rights to build its 1,200 cc bike, to Sankyo in Japan, apparently unaware that the Imperial Japanese Army funded the purchase. Over on riderinfo.com, Dr. A has the story of what became known as the Rikuo. (via)
* Let’s bring it back to America with these photos recently posted over at Off-Road Action of a Willys factory turning out Jeeps by the dozens. Given the overwhelming number of women in the factory, these shots were obviously taken in the midst of World War II, perhaps 1942 or 1943.
