Ford’s Model A

Here’s Henry Ford’s personal Model A. Having seen his personal Model T and his personal ’42, my Loyal Readers will recognize old Hank’s preference for black paint, a few experimental features (check out that huge bottle of water in the back seat!), and not much in the way of luxury. Honestly, what’s the point of owning a huge car company if you don’t get some cool machinery for yourself? The guy owned Lincoln, for crying out loud. They made some pretty hot stuff back then.

On the other hand, at least he was riding around in a car with his own name on it. That’s got to count for something.

Yet another Extremely Short Shrift night. Had a meeting right after I got home from work and the day’s gone yet again.

I have just seen the most amazing robotics video ever. Dave Barry linked to it in his blog, but there’s no need to go way over to his site. Check it out right here. Have you ever seen a more amazing robot? It looks downright alive.

And that’s it for tonight. Controversy tomorrow. See you then.
