A Unique Thanksgiving Tradition

Everyone has their Thanksgiving traditions. Dinner with the family, of course, but maybe also going to the Macy’s parade, or listening to Alice’s Restaurant, or watching “Turkey’s Away” from WKRP in Cincinnati. For us, it’s Laurel & Hardy’s 1933 classic March of the Wooden Soldiers and, once the big meal is digested, a trip to Wall Stadium Speedway for the annual Turkey Derby.

Ride-Sharing Apps Lyft Congestion in an Uber Way

Nashville is not the first small city to turn down such transit initiatives, meaning it will not be the only small city to regret such a decision in the next decade, when booming development and the related ubiquity of traffic and ride-sharing apps create an impossible to untangle web of downtown congestion without reprieve.

Trends From the Nashville International Auto Show

Unlike larger events of its ilk, the Nashville International Auto Show was housed in one room of the Music City Convention Center, with test driving options to take enthusiasts around the city. The smaller event did provide more opportunity to interact with each vehicle and speak with representatives, however, and here are a few key takeaways from the show.

The Mad Motor Maker

And not for the first time within the automotive sphere.

The Beetle Final Edition and the End of an Era

Through oil shortage and parts shortages, through overreaching government regulations, and through a history of scandal most recently culminating in the emissions disaster of 2015, Volkswagen has weathered its fair number of storms.

  • Bonnie and Clyde, Thelma and Louise, Daimler and Maybach
    On March 17, 1834, Gottlieb Daimler was born in Germany. Had he been born 100 years later, he would have seen an automotive industry the likes of which early automakers could hardly dare dream, and yet, had he been born 100 years later, that very auto industry might never have come to pass.

  • Happy Birthday, Janet Guthrie
    I could tell you that her driving suit and helmet are at The Smithsonian Institute, or that she became one of the first athletes in The Women’s Hall of Fame.

  • Strong and Fast – NASCAR is Founded
    Despite the need for an obvious distance between cars and cups, one of the most important, influential and long-standing elements of the car industry is deeply indebted to the prohibition era and the rum runners who provided America’s degenerates with drink for so long.
