OK, let's get to today's caseload: Great Unk & Auntie are styling in front of a 1961 Dodge Dart Phoenix 2 dr hardtop. If a "race car," I hope it was packing a Mopar 413 RB dual quad cross ram. And 1961 was the peak year for car rooflines IMHO. twitter.com/brown_cody72/s…
Apologies for neglecting my car ID duties of late. I continue to welcome your requests, especially for old family album pics, and please use the #DavesCarIDService hashtag. For additional guidelines please read: dcids.substack.com/p/dcids-the-te…
*Savannah built a 25 mile course winding through city streets and country roads, using prison labor, to lure the event. First car race in the US run under international rules, it attracted entries from Europe and the US and 60k spectators including President Taft.
Happy United States Grand Prix weekend from #DavesCarIDService. The first US Grand Prix (Anglicized to "Grand Prize") was held Nov 1908 in Savannah GA, and won by Frenchman Louis Wagner in this 120 hp (!) Fiat.

Right across the street from the mindblowing Carbide & Carbon Building (Daniel Burnham 1929)
If you like cars & architecture, the old Chicago Auto Club building is another treat. Now a Hampton Inn in the Loop, they preserved the Lobby as it was built in 1928, include giant roadmap of the US and a '28 Ford A Roadster.
The old IL Auto Club is almost like a church or civic building, with its steeple-like bell tower. Now used as an event space.
Not car IDs, but car dealership IDs: when I was in Chicago recently I strolled along the Motor Row district, home to some ornate building that were once car showrooms. 1. Marmon (duh) 2. Hudson 3. Premier (duh) 4. Car sihouette weather vane on the old Illinois Auto Club
with music written by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne (also RIP), and Bryan Cranston as Gus "Out of this world!" Grissom. It's just a fantastic little gem of a movie.
RIP Peter Scolari. One of my fave bits of one of my fave movies, Tom Hanks' "That Thing You Do" is how his old "Bosom Buddies" costar Hanks cast him as the host of The Hollywood Television Showcase.

Someone at work (originally from Estonia) didn’t know the English word for “cowboys,” so they called them “American horse pirates” and I may never say cowboy again.

CZ When you drive on I-80 through Iowa, the exits seem to form the most perfect cool-bop era jazz sextet ever. Adel is the vocalist, Colfax on piano, Wilton on bass, Tama on drums, Durant on sax, and Kellogg on trumpet.

I'm sure this will come as a terrible disappointment to the many people who want to pay you to live in Austin twitter.com/textranquilo/s…
Incidentally, I am today celebrating my 7th anniversary as an official Texan
I can do my job from anywhere in the USA. Here's how I came to live in Austin: criterion 1: does this place have state income taxes? criterion 2: does this place come with warm weather, bitchin' hot rod scene, BBQ, live music, and friends who already live there?
*I was misinformed
personally I moved to Texas for the skiing
"I have never once met a person who moved anywhere primarily because of taxes" <turns off notifications>

How'd you do betting against Iowa when it predicted Iowa would lose to Indiana, and then Iowa State, and then Maryland, and then Penn State? I'm not mad at it, I'm laughing at it. twitter.com/kevkell4/statu…
