Cool movie, Ryan Renolds will make a fortune.

The real star is the Alfa Romeo even in that ugly colour.

Last of the true sports sedans.

Hybrids and front or four wheel drives just don't excite.

That Alfa is the ground version of a aerobatic aircraft

Sex on wings and sex on wheels.

A now-deceased friend and neighbor bought the Phillips Screw Company as it was headed into bankruptcy. He turned them into a profitable enterprise, then sold it. Super nice guy, and smart, too. He graduated from Northwestern University with a Mechanical Engineering degree at the age of 18.

He put 4,000 hours on his Bonanza.

Here is one about of one the great aviation pioneers Tom Sopwith.

Note the name Harry Hawker (a Aussie) becomes a very big deal in the post war period.
