Things are getting fast at MIS this weekend. So fast it’s scary.
Here’s what you missed while you were out enjoying summer last weekend.
The Dingman Collection Auction is happening this weekend in Hampton, New Hampshire. If you’ve got a couple hundred thousand to spare, buy yourself something nice like a 1939 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon.
The Jeep Wrangler is a testament to American automotive machinery and its history can be traced back to the start of the 20th century under the Willys nameplate. The modern Wrangler started in 1987 with the YJ body to replace the Jeep CJ. You can pick out a YJ body because it’s the only modern Wrangler with square headlights.
This post isn’t about the history of the Jeep Wrangler. It is, however, about the many colors of Wrangler. You see, the Wrangler isn’t usually the first thing that pops into mind when you think of loud, brash or ostentatious paint jobs.
- You don’t see a Wrangler with stripes like a Ford Mustang
- You don’t see a Wrangler with painted flames like old hot rods
- You don’t see a Wrangler with roof patterns like a Mini Cooper
Remember the GMC Typhoon? How about Motorweek? (One is actually still around). Found in the depths of YouTube is Motorweek’s 1992 review of the Typhoon titled “Shelter from the Storm.”
Porsches are good for steering around twists and turns. They are also good for towing boats like this 911 spotted by a contributor on Jalopnik.
The Detroit News reported the price of gas is dropping (down 3.5% from a year ago) and that is causing the price of small cars to drop too. According to the article, the average price of gas is about $3.71 and if prices stay below $4.00, car shoppers will buy trucks, SUVs and minivans. Even though used car prices are at record highs because of inventory shortages, their prices will decline if gas prices do, in fact, remain stable.
If it’s the Monday Grind on Tuesday, shouldn’t it just be the Tuesday Grind? Probably. In any event, it’s Tuesday and this is what you missed over the Holiday weekend.
This Sunday is the 96th Indy 500. There’s no Danica Patrick and the field is wide open. Coverage starts at noon this Sunday on ABC. If you’re feeling really ambitious, catch the Coca-Cola 600 at 6:00PM Sunday night. Have a great holiday weekend.
