I was unloading photos from my phone this morning and noticed that - among the thousand or so on there - quite a few were car or transportation related. None of them merit a full post on their own but taken as a collection? They certainly constitute a good old-fashioned Grab Bag. Like the Statue of Liberty Vector above. Saw that at the Glenmoor Gathering. (I saw it years earlier at the Detroit Auto show too.) I shot a bunch there but I'll only include one more - a car show seems like kind of cheating in this context.

Anyone got an ID? This was at a scrapyard in Michigan's Upper Peninsula so I suspect this one is long gone.

Military vehicles anyone? You have to admit, this thing would be a blast to play with.

Preston Tucker's house in Ypsilanti. It's still standing. (I have a book on Tucker coming out next year.)

Yes, that's a Harley. I think they'd like to forget they put their name on things like this.

And a fire truck in someone's backyard. Not far from downtown Calumet, Michigan.

And if you haven't had a chance yet, give my podcast a listen. I describe some bizarre but true Lemon Law stories. Here it is.
