This stunning and
practical 1939 Ford 1/2 ton stake truck started life as an original rust-free
California truck. After years of trusty service, it was treated to a meticulous
frame-off restoration. During the process, the body was removed from the frame
and reworked through and through to include the fuel and brake lines
re-commissioned to ensure safety while motoring. The red in color exterior
paint is immaculate with it"s deep rich luster. Newly upholstered black
vinyl bench seat and headliner complete the simple but sophisticated interior.
The powerful V8 Flathead engine fires right up and runs very smooth. Truck
corners, steers, shifts and brakes great! The engine bay and undercarriage are
highly detailed. There is a full size spare located under the oak bed floor.
Should you own a business or need a marketing niche" this truck can serve
as a rolling billboard among the countless other uses. Truck is 100% turn-key
ready to show or put to work! Best of all, this truck runs and drives
fantastic! Call now!

Well here we go...Ryan Hunter-Reay was the winner after a 10 lap shootout to the end, his first win at the 500. Helio Castroneves did a great job of fighting for first, but it wasn't meant to be. Third place went to Marco Andretti. The Andretti Team had for cars in the top six places.
There were a few people that I watched during the race. Ed Carpenter, the oval master, was bouncing between first and second in the last forty laps bringing the crowd to its feet. Unfortunately he crashed out on lap 175. Tony Kanaan just couldn't get it together and ended up in 26th. Takuma Sato ended up in the 19th. JacquesVilleneuve, who hasn't raced in open-wheel in what seems like forever, ended up in 14th. Carlos Munoz, who as a rookie came in 2nd, finished with a very decent 4th. Juan Pablo Montoya, who has been away from Indianpolis for 14 years, posted the fastest lap at 225 miles per hour and ended up in a very decent 5th. Nice job!
The drivers all claim that they like Monaco, probably because of the party factor. Today's modern cars can't race there that well. A slow course and hard to pass. Rosberg had a flawless run start to finish. His teammate came in second and these two have been flip-flopping first and second all season. Daniel Ricciardo came in third again.
NOTE: Brabham was one of my favorite drivers in the 60's. Always a joy to watch.
Triple Formula One World Champion Sir Jack Brabham is gone....he
was 88. According to reports, he passed away peacefully in his Gold Coast,
Australia home earlier this morning. Until his death, Brabham held the
distinction of being the oldest living Forumula One World Champion.
icon of motor racing amassed a total of 14 F1 victories and three titles in his
career. He is also the only driver to ever win the World Championship in a car
of his own design and construction (1966). That is a feat that is unlikely to
ever be repeated. His other two triumphs came with the Cooper Racing Team in
1959 and 1960.
Australian also participated in four Indy 500's, finishing as high as ninth in
1961. Jack was also the first man ever knighted for his services in motorsport.
team he co-founded won 35 races, four driver titles, and two constructor
championships, between their inception in 1962 and their final race in the 1992
Hungarian Grand Prix.
In his homeland of Australia, Jack is a trailblazer, a pioneer,
and holds the crown as the first Aussie to obtain a Formula One title. His
maiden race victory came on the famous Monte Carlo street course, commonly
referred to as Monaco, in 1959.
Jack Brabham was an astonishing talent behind the wheel, a genius in the role
of constructor, and will be missed by people from all corners of the motorsport

HERE IS A VERY NICE 1977 HONDA CB 750 SUPER SPORT. ONLY 4056 ACTUAL MILES. VERY CORRECT ORIGINAL BIKE. I HAVE OWNED IT SINCE 1990 AND ONLY RODE IT A FEW TIMES OVER THE YEARS. I PUT NEW TIRES ON LAST YEAR, THE ORIGINALS DID NOT LOOK SAFE TO RIDE ON DUE TO AGE CRACKS. THE PAINT, CHROME, SEAT, TANK, COVERS, AND LIGHTS ARE ORIGINAL TO THE BIKE. WE TUNED IT UP, SERVICED THE BRAKES AND IT' RIDES NICE. THE VIN # CB750E2109455 THE ENGINE # CB750E2609407 EXHAUST # HM410 HONDA AND IS ORIGINAL TO THE BIKE.
ONE SIDE COVER HAS SOME CRACKS AND NEEDS REPAIR OR REPLACED. THE OTHER COVER IS OK, BUT NOT PERFECT. I THINK THEY ARE REPAIRABLE. I HAD THIS STORED MANY TIMES, AND IT GOT BUMPED A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I MOVED IT. THE DAMAGE IS NOT FROM PUTTING IT DOWN ON THE GROUND.
THE TANK AND STICKER IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION FOR A BIKE THAT'S 33 YEARS OLD. I WAS ALWAYS CAREFUL WHEN FUELING IT TO NOT CAUSE DAMAGE. THE FENDERS AND LIGHTS ARE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL. THE SIGNALS, AND BEEPERS STILL WORK AS DOES HIGH AND LOW BEAM ON THE HEADLIGHT.
THE GRIPS, AND FOOT PEGS ARE EXCELLENT AND I THINK VERIFY THE MILES AND THE WAY THE BIKE HAS BEEN USED. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL AND BOOKS WITH THE BIKE.
Still traveling, but I did get to see this race in Russian. No internet where I was located which is why there was a delay in posting. It was a race, at least for the leaders. Hamilton took first by a very small margin to Rosberg. Other teams had close finishes between teammates too. Daniel Ricciardo finish another amazing third place.
Even though there was action it was few and far between. You know it is slow when the announcer gets excited over a challenge for 20th place.
