Since this has turned into Pontiac week, and I’m sure everyone is sick of World of Wheels cars (there are more coming) here’s another Pontiac to get us back to things I actually find on the road. I see this ultra clean Pontiac Bonneville on a regular basis at an auto supplier plant. Thanks to the internet I am able so say with 95% certainty that this is a 1978 Bonneville.

Our tour of the World of Wheels show continues with this beautifully restored 1965 Pontiac GTO Convertible. It may even be a little too perfect, but since it does have a cool set of modern-retro wheels on it and a fairly rare shade of navy blue paint I can get over the perfect hoses and other details.

1977 Pontiac Trans Am “Bandit”

Our tour of the World of Wheels show continues with this clean copy of the famous T/A from the movie “Smokey and the Bandit.” The movie used a stock black T/A with gold trim, so it is fairly easily to duplicate the movie car. About the only needed additions are the Georgia state flag front plate and a vintage Georgia rear plate.

Wanna Cornhole?

cornholeSince I watch T.V. and surf the Internet I know what this is.  I actually took this photo in Hoover, Alabama.  But can you imagine what this must look like to someone who has never heard of these people?  I am going to create an award for “The Worst Ever Name for a Game and/or Organization”.  They win on so many levels.

World of Wheels: 1968-1972 Chevrolet Nova

wow-nova-000In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow I’m going to pay a little tribute to a car that I loved.  Yes, it’s my first car.  The Chevrolet Nova had only a few trim/option changes between 1968 and 1972.   The red 1968 Nova coupe you see here is almost perfect, I would only add the black & chrome side molding from the yellow car, which my Nova had also.

World of Wheels: Up Close

wow-close-001Here’s another gallery of photos from the World of Wheels show.  These are photos of details that caught my eye enough that I took close up pictures of them.  You may find them interesting also… or not.

World of Wheels: Exotics

wow-mobinc-035Last weekend was the World of Wheels auto show in Birmingham.  This was my first time at World of Wheels and I was very impressed with what was there.  Over the next few days I’m going to post selveral galleries and highlight a few cars that I really liked.  Today we will start with the display by M.O.B. I.N.C., which was very impressive.

Construction Sign Madness


Here’s a real shocker. Within days of hacking instructions being posted on the Internet, constructions signs everywhere are getting hacked with amusing messages added. It’s a good thing I’m not a teenager any more. This is just the kind of thing I would have done.
