Mechanics! Popular Ones!

Hi from Oregon, where I just purchased a house. Details to come (as well as slides from my vacation, my college major, and last night's dream). Excited yet?

I recently came across a dozen Popular Mechanics mags from the 50's. Here are a couple of doozies.

Here come the convertiplanes! I was promised flying cars when I was a kid. Where the hell are the flying cars?

"Mister Rogers, should I put this detached speaker cone with the dangling wires on this wall?"

"This sure is a swell racer Tad. Is there anything else you have that's midget?"

Florida's blow boat derby. The less said about this the better.

A Camel Fan for 24 years, a terminal cancer patient 24 years later.

Camel. America's most popular cigarette - by billions! The favorite cigarette of Preacher Rowe and Early Wynn. At least they weren't on steroids.


Pretty funny stuff! :)
