Ooh, I just love this… whenever new pieces of the puzzle are found I get a thrill.

You simply must know that there were at least as many species of all forms of life around back then as there are now… and due to the conditions present in those days potentially a lot more than exist today … the scarcity is simply because fossilization is not a common occurrence. Not in the least.

A majestically magnificent machine that definitely had an air of authority surrounding it. You could actually feel it!

I wanted one so bad. But we were poor and I was 11. I still want one today! A 600SEL, especially! Whee!

MGB GT Sebring

MGB GT Sebring

I had a roadster, which was fantastic and fun, but I always lusted for the GT with it’s sexy coupe styling.

fadingNot sure if the MGB GT Sebring was a real thing, what with my rapidly fading memory, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise me.

And then there were the V8s!

I dunno, man, I really dig it and gol dang it if I don’t want one madly to love and to go hunt dinosaurs in.

Sweet it would be…

CMA 10-2DLA

The inimitable Bozak CMA 10-2DLA stereo mixer preamplifier.

CMA 10-2DLA

A true legend, it has a cult following. I would love to have one; for the phono circuits, especially. It’s out of my league, of course, price-wise. This one’s going for $2,100 bucks.

CMA 10-2DLA

Made with no nonsense just 15 minutes Northeast of here. Extremely highly regarded by everyone. This was the first pro level DJ mixer and was a standard for the then-new field.

All hail Rudy Bozak!

Superior speakers, too, came from Rudy Bozak, a point-source dude!.

 

 

1969 Mercedes-Benz C-111

story_cars

🔸1969 Mercedes-Benz C-111🔸

We call it a concept car, though Mercedes would term it a research vehicle. First unveiled in 1969, the gull-winged wonder sported a 280bhp three-rotor Wankel engine. In 1970 a refreshed car was wheeled out with a four-rotor powerplant then in 1978 an all-new car emerged, with diesel power, as pictured.

Extremely aerodynamic, as a diesel it broke a speed record for that fuel of 200mph in 1978, and a year later with a 4.8-litre petrol V8 it achieved the extraordinary average lap speed of 251mph.

A total of 16 cars were produced.

I’ve been in mad love with the C-111 from the instant I saw it. An incredible automobile.

 

 

UNCUT STS-48 UFO “event”

Martyn Stubbs
May 16, 2009

This is for the researcher who wants to see this “legendary” clip in full. It goes from “normal” at night, to the 1st NASA shuttle video to show a UFO!

Relive the ‘buildup,’ not expecting anything as thunderstorms are being observed.

From Martyn Stubbs’ NASA UFO Archives.

These were heady times. These were good times.

I miss the old days.

 

 

Quad 12L Studio

OMG how lovely!

The fantabulous Quad 12L Studio!

These are basically my 12Ls but in a powered version! And we know how good Quad amps are, eh? That said, mine are powered by a Hafler P3000 transnova, so mine just might win! Ha! Hahaha!

Gosh, even so, I would love to get these, just because they are what they are — but, there’s my persistently non-existent budget standing firmly in the way, as I doubt that affirm will help me. As usual.

Oh, baby…

 

 

silence of our friends

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

I remember it so well. I was just 16 years old.

The times were exciting back then. Things were … “real.”

Who would have ever thought a Mustang would come in at just shy of $78,000.00 and be worth every penny? Ha!

I got to go upstairs and give my gifts to my Angels and hang with them and the lovely mommy’s parents.

My princess loved her new outfits as did her Mom and all of them were highly praised by everyone. Which caused me to get warm fuzzies. And to cap it off I got some gifts, too!

Abel is a great researcher. I so wish that someday he will release his books in English.
