He must be a really nice person, to go so far out of his way to comply with truth in advertising...

I found the first person account of the 120 MPH speed in the Pennsylvania Railroad Class T1. Great reading, and I would love to have seen it. My distant personal connection: my dad's Uncle Harry was an engineer on Baldwin steam locomotives.

Obligatory photo, taken on my phone in New Hampshire this summer.

That's a whole lot of awesome. We had a customer of ours bring down his 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports in that stunning gray color the other day. What a beautiful car. First time I've been close to one. Even the starter motor sounds classier and higher quality than other cars. And then the owner let the one service writer take it for a spin unsupervised. They had gotten talking the one time when he brought his Vette in for service and had mentioned his Bentley to the service writer, and the service writer had said he'd never seen that car before so he just drove down with it and then told the writer "It's insured, go for a drive in it, have fun."

That's the story I was thinking of. Its crazy what they got away with back then and even somewhat later. For example, the New York Central line ran right through the middle of Oneida, NY, and by all accounts they used to run through the middle of the city with the Johnson bar buried down in the oil cans at 90mph. They relocated the line outside of the city in around '65 due to the North Shore Limited plowing into a fire truck that went around the crossing gates in '63. The speed of the collision was 80mph.

Yeah, they're coming to Philly, but it's a general admission show and I think I may be getting too old for that E36 M3.
