Kids monorail inside a John Wanamaker's Dept. Store

Old guys connecting with young guys while fixing up a Duster for SEMA, and during the build, learning a lot from each others generation

This awesome group is all about getting the local kids in their area into the car hobby and teaching them skills and work ethic.

Doing everything to finish it in time to go to CA to the Hotchkis Event at the Auto Club Speedway October 16th - 18th. The best part about it is that they will get to drive the car with the Hotchkis team coaching them the whole way through it and explaining to them why the car is performing the way it does.

Kids auto races at Venice, Charlie Chaplin 1914

Kid Auto Races At Venice is a 1914 American-made motion picture starring Charlie Chaplin in which his "Little Tramp" character makes a first appearance (although Mabel's Strange Predicament was technically the first film in which he portrayed the character, as it was produced a few days earlier).

So old it's painted... not printed

Lots of wasted time showing off a Lamborghini, not even a fraction of a second of it spinning a tire

So far I've spun more tires on trying to find footage of this publicity scam than it has on the track, or parking lot, or even in a garage. So much wasted time 

Red Bull wins this, and didn't waste money on a Lambo.

Superior, a movie about one last adventure before the draft

In the summer of 1969, two 18 year old boys with very different futures ahead of them go on a 1,300-mile bicycle adventure around Lake Superior.

Superior was filmed on-location in the Upper Peninsula during the summer of 2014. The film crew traveled more than 7,000 miles round-trip in a truck and three sedans from Los Angeles to remote regions of the Keweenaw Peninsula to work on the film.

Inspired by the real journey of Karl Benda and Dan "Dudza" Junttila that took place over 40 years ago. Superior is set in 1969, at the height of the Vietnam War. It tells the story of Chuck and Derek. Chuck is on his way to Michigan Tech for college, and Derek is counting down the days until his draft eligibility. The pair decides to make a 1,300 mile bike ride along the shores of Lake Superior.

Writer/director Ed Benda will be taking the movie around the U.P. during the "Official Superior Roadshow."

Question and answer sessions will be held following each of the screenings. They will be at the following locations on the following dates:

Oct 6: Sault Ste. Marie - Lake Superior State University at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Oct 8: Escanaba - Bay College at 7 p.m.
Oct13: Negaunee - Historic Vista Theatre at 7:30 p.m.
