Soviet Conveyance: Riga Autobus Factory

Scott Ith October 10, 2012 Cars You Should Know

Riga, Latvia, was an important city to the U.S.S.R. It provided a key port to the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Latvia was incorportated into the U.S.S.R. in 1944, when Nazi occupation ended. Riga had been an advanced city for centuries and was known for its resources, industry, and trade. Capitalizing on the local talent, the soviets created the RAF, or Riga Autobus Factory (Rīgas Autobusu Fabrika in Latvian).  The vehicles they made were exclusively for utility and transit.  Today, the factory is closed and most of the RAF vehicles are gone, but the remaining examples serve as reminders of the not-so-distant Soviet past in Latvia.

Ran When Parked: 1929 Model A Pickup

From the “This is probably too much of a project for you” file, a 1929 Ford Model A pickup for sale in Helper, Utah. There are people out there who could turn this into a great hot rod or rat rod, but not many. Others might just call it yard art. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

Wagon Wednesday: 1968 International Atlas 12

Scott Ith September 26, 2012 Wagon Wednesday

Someone took the name Travelall very seriously when they created this 12 door International. Oddly, at this time, it doesn’t have five rows of seating, but rather, a vintage moonshine still in the rear of the vehicle.  The owner claims that it was ordered for the Harlem Globetrotters and that they used it for four years. 

Today, it is in surprisingly good condition.  Click through for one more photo and more information about this monstronsity.

24 Hours Of Lemons, Thunderhill 2012: A Beginner’s Perspective

Scott Ith September 20, 2012 24 Hours of Lemons, Featured

The sun rose over the rolling hills of golden winter wheat and filled my tent with light.  I rustled, rubbed the sleep from my eyes, and thought, “Holy shit!  I’m first on the track today!”  This was my first-ever Lemons event and I was…um…nervous. 

When Pete sent me the invite just two weeks previous to join Team Killer ZomBees (You may remember the ZomBee itself as the HCOTY for 2011), I did what any rational, self-respecting person would not do: I said yes.  What follows is my attempt to describe what the 24 Hours of Lemons was like.

Modern Art Monday: Sandy’s CanCars

Scott Ith September 10, 2012 In General, Modern Art Monday

Some of our favorite subject matter here at es in from our readers on the tips line.  is a perfect example of one of our readers (Thanks, Bruce M.) pointing us in the direction of something remarkable.  

The website features the work of Sandy, an English draughtsman turned technology teacher living in New Zealand.  Having been involved in the world of competition modeling, he had seen aircraft models made from aluminum drink cans. They always used the inside, plain aluminum of the can.  Then, the idea came to him to use the color and art on the cans themselves to celebrate and display the origin of the building material.  He also made the decision to build cars instead of aircraft.

Ear Candy: A Supercharged Inline 8 Cylinder Powered Roadster


Some ideas just sound right.  An example of such an idea is taking a straight eight Packard engine, adding a McCulloch supercharger and four Stromberg carburetors and dropping the whole monster in a stripped down ’30s roadster body.  The result isn’t just an idea that sounds right, but a car with one of the greatest engine notes of all time.

Hit the jump for two videos and the aural delight.

Midget Update: LeMons Prep

I would like to announce that I have made the questionable decision to accept the poorly thought out invitation from the Killer Zombees Racing Team to join them at Thunderhill later this month.  Yes, it is just a short two weeks and a short drive (12 hours) away.  I have never participated in a LeMons event, so I am nervous and excited about the opportunity.  To ease my tension, my trusty companion, the midget, will be making the trip.  First, it needed a few upgrades.
