Ca Speedway 66 Furyous Physics Burnout - 1/4 Mile Drag
Man this was fun! My machine is geared more for top end - than for acceleration, but being the only classic cruiser at the strip drew a lot of attention. Thrust over to my channel and view this vehicle performing more of what she enjoys - evasive maneuvers and high speed runs (up to 142mph). While you are there, ride along in other vintage machinery on the go and scan my encounter with the publishing industry. The Fury seen in this video is an essential element of a Police Officer's character in the fast- paced novel Seven Skins (now sprinting from the gate on SCRIBEWORX.NET).
Space Invader Shuttles Thru Los Angeles - Quite The Endeavor...
10/13/2012 The Space Shuttle Endeavor inches along Crenshaw Ave and Martin
Luther King Blvd, on her final Journey to The California Science Center. It
took me from 1:30 PM - straight through 6:30 AM the following day (napping
in the car) to get this footage and then just as darkness fled - drove my
66 Fury home 80 miles. - It was worth it, and I thank the 7-11 Gods across
the street for sustaining me. Is ice coffee a food group? Dairy, beans,
must be good. People were awesome and the diverse crowd had a prevalence
of goodwill - even with hrs of delays and false starts. I heard someone
there say "space travel brings us all together", just as joining forces
against a hostile space race always does in the movies. An interesting
correlation exists there... Ending on a light note, - I found it amusing
that at the opening of this video, a detached sign pole could be evidence
of the famous Johnny Carson quote "Cut Off Your Slauson", which he
routinely stated in a skit on The Tonight Show ... Perhaps that scenario
can be incorporated into a monologue about the Space Ship's trip ???

Applied 66 Furyous Physics - 180 Forward Slide
Check-out "Almost 2 Tons of a Furyous About-Face" to see a reverse 180
slide (J turn).This is how Officer Pruitt's driving flair is exhibited in
the virulent novel Seven Skins(now drifting at SCRIBEWORX.NET). Pruitt uses
this vintage machine to the utmost, while propeling the cast through the
mayhem of a torturous resurrected curse. As for this Plymouth Fury VIP, you
can examine her specs and ride along with her at 142 mph on a dry lakebed
in the El-Mirage Furyous video series on my channel. The resolution is a
little crude in the first three, but the sound and overall effects are
exhilerating. More from this cruiser to come.
Antique Stutz Fire Engine - Jay Leno or Disney Please Rescue!
This late teens - early 20's rig is adorned with pumps & hoses and appears
all original and complete - except for the grill and radiator ornaments.
last registered in 1966! She is located on RD 483 at the "Piute Meadows
Trading Post" south of the town of Havilah in Kern County CA. The whole
property is for sale and the future of this classic workhorse is in
peril... Hope someone out there can handle this size of a project and
resurrect or at least preserve this valiant artwork of American history...
Havilah means Gold - and this sure is a large chunk of California's.
Note: The diesel starting up at the end of the video is obviously not this
machine - but the timing was impeccable for the quest of breathing new life
into this beauty...
