1952 Ariel Square Four Wood Racer

More than one person actually built one of those vehicles, and one of the cars is in a museum in St. Louis, Missouri (oh, and check out that 1956 prediction of a Smart Phone).

We bet that most people are only faintly aware that the Ariel motorcycle brand existed at all. There was a time, though, when the British company was a pioneer in new and exciting technologies, innovating where others were content to soldier forward with tried-and-true methods. In fact, its eventual failure was due in part to its futuristic designs. For instance, Ariel introduced the world to its Square Four motorcycle in 1931. Named for its oddly-shaped engine architecture that placed four cylinders in a box pattern, the Square Four was completely unlike anything else offered at the time and used two sets of pistons mated at the flywheel inside a single engine block that was capped by a single head casting. Different to say the least, but ultimately pretty successful for Ariel, which went on to sell over 15,000 of the bikes before production ceased in 1959.

An interesting home-built hotrod has just shown up on eBay that mates this classic engine to a custom wooden body designed by – get this – a boat builder. The vehicle itself was inspired by a Modern Mechanix Magazine article from the ’50s and features a French connection by way of suspension components from a Citroen. Cadillac bullet-shaped tail lights may look a little out of place, but are nothing if not period correct.

Saturday Matinee – Bustin’ Off The Ice, Japanese Graduation Ceremony, The Third Degree & The Heavy

Saturday, 1 February 2014

Incomprehensible Japanese Graduation Ceremony is awesome. [via]

The Third Degree is an Aussie band specializing in retro R&B and does it well. That lead singer’s got the vibe of early James Brown and Smokey Robinson, backed up by the Bar-Kays.

The Heavy  has a great mix of funk, soul & swamp rock style (even though they blatently stole from Screamin’ Jay Hawkins).

I heard that the SuperBowl is coming up. Chili by 3, Broncos by 10. Have a great weekend, folks, see you tomorrow.

Step back (or squint) for the effect.

[Similar illusion, with explanation here. The image above was found on a forum that I’m not gonna link to because it’s got wads of offensive stuff. You’re welcome.]
