This blog will expand on themes and topics first mentioned in my book, "The Automobile and American Life." I hope to comment on recent developments in the automobile industry, reviews of my readings on the history of the automobile, drafts of my new work, contributions from friends, descriptions of the museums and car shows I attend and anything else relevant to those interested in automobiles and auto history.

"Cruising the Grand" -- Escondido, May 13
Our precious Lisa
Maybe the most asthetically pleasing tailfin ever -- 1960 Caddy
Dash to a 1950s (?) Alfa
Several musical acts performed
Not to many of these Opel GTs around!
Hi folks -- last week for awhile visiting Lisa and Tony on a Friday night in Escondido, CA. If you are at all into a variety of cars and cruise-ins, you have got to visit downtown Escondido and the Friday night event. Last night the feature was tractors andstationary engines, and it was both educational and fun.
