Smile, its good for you

I'm always in the mood for good music, funny jokes, great people, and a little horsepower every now and again.

Photos from the 21st Century Wire.

BLM during the stand-off near I-19(?).

This photo caught my eye of a group of BLM gentlemen standing around the hood of their vehicle. What caught my eye, specifically, was that the gentleman at the top center is rolling a SureFire 60-round magazine in his AR carbine variant. I do believe this is the first time I’ve seen a government agency running the magazine.
With Harry Reid’s statement to KRNV-TV on Monday — “Well, it’s not over … We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So, it’s not over.” — is an indicator that the government is not standing down and there will be repercussions. Unfortunately, neither will the other side. This could potentially lead to a shoot-out between armed BLM forces and the American supporters of Cliven Bundy.


This is why the administration, members of congress, and state officials want 30 round magazines banned. So we can have less billets to shoot with at a time, and they can have more.

For all of you able to see this month’s lunar eclipse…soak it up. And while you’re at it, appreciate it with a moment of silence for all of us in the Northeast who live in suck-ville, USA.

So, today, we are looking at one of the coolest underrated cars made in the century. The Chevy Corvair. In 1959, American automakers were only making one size of car, large. So the Corvair was a departure from standard thinking and changed the way automakers built cars. It was offered in a coupe, convertible, truck, van, sports car, almost anything you wanted from a Corvair was available from the dealer. It had an air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, unibody construction, and an new swing axle rear suspension (later replaced with a fully independent rear suspension.) The Corvair suffered from bad press due to it’s suspension shortcomings. But by 1962, Motor Trend magazine had named it the Car Of The Year for 1960, the suspension problems had been addressed, the 1962 Monza Spyder trim level had 150 turbocharged horsepower (making the Corvair the first production car to offer a turbocharged engine as a factory option), a 4 speed manual transmission was the only transmission available in the Spyder, and the Corvair was officially, just a fun car to drive. It was also simple things that made the Corvair unique, like not having power steering because the car was already light and even less weight than normal was over the front wheels. The Corvair turned out to be ahead of it’s time and by 1966 was seeing competition from the Mustang, Chevy’s own Camaro, and the multitude of other pony cars that were offering more bang for the buck performance. It lives on today with a die hard following that won’t be broken. There are car meets throughout the US aimed at strictly Corvairs and they come in every shape and size you could ever imagine. Hopefully they will continue to be remembered as the car that Chevrolet built for the masses and it delivered that in spades.
