* The announcement of the Springfield Vintage Grand Prix earlier this week neatly coincided with a post on The Chicane on the Fred Wacker Allard J2 that competed in the 1952 Watkins Glen road races and contributed to the end of organized road racing in the United States.
* If you aren’t checking out the Friday Art Show every week on the H.A.M.B., you’re missing a lot of great, mostly lowbrow and lowbrow-inspired, art. One of the regulars there is Bomonster, who works entirely in scratchboard and seems to have a lot of fun doing it.
* Every Chevrolet enthusiast knows what COPO stands for, right? But how many of them also know that a group of 200 Citations were ordered through the COPO program in the 1980s for a regional promotion? Hover Motor Co. has the scoop.
* Gary Littlejohn’s Cinderella Cart is one of several groovy 1960s/1970s trikes that Working Class Kustoms recently rounded up photos of. This is the kind of unbridled awesomeness that happens when you put LSD in the country’s water supply.
* Finally, we spotted these photos of another Studebaker building on Flickr’s Vintage Car Showrooms pool, this one in St. Petersburg, Florida. A little googling, and we see it’s at 600 Fourth St. South. Shouldn’t there be a registry for these Studebaker buildings?
