Space shutte-spotting

September 24, 2012












Seeing the Space shuttle do a flyby over Berkeley CA caused a columnist to have the nihilist’s version of the St. Paul’s moment.  Read all about it later today in the column that will be posted on Op Ed News, Smirking Chimp, and Bartcop.

DOTS Berkeley Style

August 31, 2012












This 1969 21 window split windshield was seen in Berkeley CA recently.  The occupants of the vehicle (who root for the All Blacks?) were donating books to the Berkeley Public Library (seen in the background).




















What ever happened to the DOTS feature on Jalopnik?  Maybe we should apply for the job of being the DOTS intern?













How did Suicide Doors get that name?

August 29, 2012

We will send a link to this page and these pictures so that if the Jalopnik question of the day editor needs them, he can use them if he takes our suggestion to answer the question asked by the headline above.












The cars that have front doors that open towards the rear are few and far between these days.  We wonder how Suicide Doors got the name.




















What’s not to love about a mint condition (1954?) Rolls Royce (seen last Sunday afternoon in Berkeley  CA) with Suicide doors?












Classic car spotting on Shattuck Ave. in Berkeley produced these photos.












Isn’t there a song about a car owned by a little old lady from Berkeley CA?

This photo has been in the “on deck” file for some time, so we figured we would post it today when we be postin’ like crazy.

Ferrari-spotting in Berkeley CA

July 26, 2012












We saw this Ferrari in Berkeley CA and so we took us a picture.  We have noticed beau coup Ferraris in Berkeley the last week or two and will try to learn “what up wid dat.”

Tie-die still in fashion in Berkeley CA

July 26, 2012




















We may do a column about tie-dye still being fashionable in Berkeley and so we might need this photo to go with such a future column.

Better crops

July 24, 2012












This cropped image will probably be the one we use to go with the Smirking Chimp column.  Tune in Friday morning about 10:15 a.m. PDT to see how that goes.

Getting ready . . .

July 23, 2012












This is a file shot of a sign that was posted in Berkeley CA about two years ago.  Since much punditry is being written this week about guns and gun control, we plan on using this photo for the new column that will be posted Friday morning (PDT) on Bartcop, Op Ed News, and Smirking Chimp.












We may use a copy of this photo and crop down to the TrustoCorp name.

For a good cause!

This guy was selling bobblehead dolls of the members of the String Cheese Incident Band on the street in Berkeley CA, Sunday.  It would be inappropriate to use it with the next column so we’ll give the plug for them here.

jambandbobbleheads do com my point you to them.
