1965 Shelby GT350 Front AngleThis four-owner 1965 Shelby GT350 is being offered after approximately four decades in a private collection. Built at almost exactly the mid-point of first-year production, it incorporates several interesting features related to the running changes made early in the production process. Serial number SFM5S265, it was received at Shelby American on May 14, 1965. The transformation from stripped Mustang to full-blown Shelby began on the same day and was completed on May 19. It was ordered by Reynolds Motors, Inc. of Syracuse, New York, on June 17 and shipped there on June 21. A radio-delete car, it was invoiced to Reynolds at $3,863.75 including Cragar wheels and freight and first purchased by Kent Bewley of Greenville, Tennessee. It changed hands two more times until Michael E. Cocolichio of Bayside, New York, purchased it in the early 1970s, retaining ownership until 2014.

2015 ROUSH Performance Ford Mustang Stage 3 Front AngleThere is nothing quite as intense as the raw power of a 5.0L V8 engine. Add ROUSH Performance’s new 2015 2.3L TVS supercharger to the mix, and you’ve got a whole new beast on your hands. The all-new 2015 Stage 3 Mustang is a force to be reckoned with.

The 2015 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is the most powerful and well-balanced production Mustang to launch out of the ROUSH Performance garage. For starters, standard features include a ROUSH Quad-Tip exhaust (with the ROUSH Active Exhaust System as an optional add-on), and of course, the fierce new “R7” aerobody, complete with graphics and badging. Twists and turns are no match for the RS3, which comes equipped with a standard single adjustable coilover suspension system, with an optional competition-tuned 3-way adjustable system available.

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible Front Angle1957 saw the Eldorado (in both Biarritz convertible and Seville hardtop bodystyles) with a revised rear-end design featuring a low, downswept fenderline capped by a pointed, in-board fin. The rear fenders were commonly referred to as “chipmunk cheeks”. This concept was used for two years, but did not spawn any imitators. Series 62 Eldorados (as distinct from the Series 70 Eldorado Brougham) were further distinguished by the model name above a V-shaped rear deck ornament and on the front fenders. The rear fender and deck contour was trimmed with broad, sculptured stainless steel beauty panels. Also seen were “shark” style fins pointing towards the back of the cars. A three section built in front bumper was another exclusive trait of the Series 62 Eldorados, which came with a long list of standard features. Four specially-built 4-door hardtop Eldorado Sedan Sevilles were also built in 1957.

Solar Roadways

The possible future of our nation’s roadways has received seed funding via crowdfunding.  The technology is called Solar Roadways and it received a little over 2 million dollars in funding on IndieGoGo last year.  Just imagine covering all roads in the country with thick glass hexagons that are solar powered and contain heat elements and LEDs for lighting among other things.  That’s the concept behind solar roadways.

Scott and Julie Brusaw are the husband and wife team behind the concept.  They have spent the better part of the last decade developing the modular hexagon panels that would make up solar-powered roads.  These panels offer some amazing benefits.
