That's awesome.

I like the 1961 (or 62?) Michigan Manufacturer's plate on the front, too.

I'm sure most here are familiar with the Wide Track advertisements done by Art Fitzpatrick/Van Kaufman.

Art would do the car illustrations and Van would do the backgrounds; they would travel to exotic locations (on paid expense account) to create appropriate settings for the car art.

There are a number of original illustrations on display in the GM Heritage Center. When looking closely at the artwork one can see the exactly trimmed car artwork placed directly on top of the background layer.

Not only does it demonstrate the technique mentioned here but it gives the picture, when viewed in real life, a cool "3D" effect.

There are some speed limit changes for the better coming up, if a bunch of laws are passed in a number of states:

In West Virginia, the change to the posted speed from 70 mph to 75 mph.

The Oklahoma legislation wants to raise the turnpike to 80 mph from the current 75mph and would also make rural interstate highways from 70 to 75 mph.

Montana would only raise truck speed limits on interstate highways from 65 mph to 70 mph throughout the day. Currently, state highways are limited to 60 mph during the day and 55 mph at night.

Massachusetts would increase the state’s 65 mph speed limit to 70 mph

Kentucky will increase the speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph on Interstate 165 and I-64.

California will get rid of speed differential for cars and trucks, and allow faster travel for all vehicles on portions of Interstate 5 and state Route 99.

Arkansas is proposing a bill for higher speed limits on certain highways and mandate a 75 mph speed limit on freeways outside urban areas while large trucks would be allowed to travel up to 70 mph.

What do you do when you know there is a terrible hail storm coming your way?
