In the case of Tulsa, Oklahoma, one time capsule that was supposed to yield buried treasure turned out to be a disappointment 50 years in the making. The year was 1957, and the city of Tulsa was celebrating the state’s 50th anniversary with a competition. The prize was a brand-new Plymouth Belvedere with only four miles on the odometer. But like any big PR stunt, there was a catch:…

This 1233 Horsepower Diesel-Nitrous Truck Is Nuts

Old Smokey F1 is Scott Birdsall’s multi-purpose 1949 Ford pickup-bodied race truck, built at Chuckles Garage in Santa Rosa, California. Under all that patina and plumbing, it hides a 5.9 Cummins diesel with a sequential turbo setup operating with a maximum boost pressure of 106 psi. And since it weighs just 3660 lbs., paired with 1233 horsepower and 2000 foot pounds of torque at the wheels, the figures end up being absolute mayhem: What started out as a $225 ’49 Ford from Craigslist has a full tubular frame, with the…

The Death Car: Urban legends surrounding “haunted” cars difficult to explain

The term “urban legend” became widespread in the 1980s after Jan Harold Brunvand, an English professor at the University of Utah, published a series of popular books named The Vanishing Hitchhiker: American Urban Legends and Their Meaning. But we didn’t really need Professor Brunvard to tell us we love scary stories, and adore passing them on as “This one is true, you’ve got to believe me!” With the emergence of Gothic literature in the late 18th century, horror stories became a favorite mode of entertainment. They revolved around haunted houses,…
