E.J. Potter, aka The Michigan Madman, was the creator/rider of that V8-powered bike. In blunt terms, he lived.

I was a listener to Shep's late-night WOR show. I wish that I'd known about all the radio gold available back then. There was real entertainment in radio in the '70s-'80s, unlike today.

The first pic might be a 1979-1980 Ford LTD. American cars aren't common in Jeddah, are they?

Aside from the fascinating color of the frog's gall bladder, I remember very little of dissecting frogs. An amphibian shouldn't have to give his life for that. Substitute cayenne for formaldehyde,...

Mine was a gift, I didn't earn it. Unfortunately I didn't get the (quilted?) button-in liner or rain hood. And the tag is torn off. The only part remaining says, "DO NOT REMOVE THIS LABEL".

That's my daily. I'm a Seiko 5 convert now. It runs against the BIG WATCH continuum, but it just works so well. And there is not a more comfortable band AFAIK.

These were especially good, particularly the dry lakes footage. A Bugatti! And Earl Bruce's distinctive '40 Ford. At that time it seems like the earlier 4 bangers were on an equal footing with the...

Most anything by Stevie Nicks alone or a good amount of Fleetwood Mac's hits. Whether I actively listen or just let it wash over me as background, always magic.

Here in the salty-wintered, rustbound Northeast, probably 198X. Unless stored unused for thirty years, there just aren't any. It's a shame most of us will never know how good these cars were.

Glad it was simple and easy.
