Went for a drive today. Saw some not great examples of great cars, an engineering marvel too.

Saw a friend, he told me about a scrap yard that is filled with old cars. So I went.

I started with an Isuzu Impulse, this was a good sign,

Then for the engineering nerds, get ready. A Lift Lock for boats that was started in 1886, opened in 1904. It works using no external power, just gravity & water displacement. 141ft long, 33ft wide, & a fall of 65ft. It was the 1st lock to be built with concrete, & the (then) largest non-reinforced concrete structure in the world.
