* While digging around for our quick story on the 75th anniversary of the Wienermobile this week, we came across the above photo at These Americans, which shows the later, Fifties-style Wienermobile as well as Little Oscar, portrayed by Meinhardt Raabe, an actor who also played the munchkin coroner that pronounced the death of the Wicked Witch of the East.

* Car guys may know Woodward Avenue as the location for Detroit’s world-famous Woodward Dream Cruise, but to Detroiters, it’s one of their main thoroughfares – Main Street, almost – and Barry Wolk pointed us to this excellent pictorial on DetNews.com chronicling the avenue throughout the years.

* While the World War II Jeep served well as a military vehicle, it lacked certain refinements as a passenger vehicle after the war. As we see from an April 1947 Mechanix Illustrated article posted to Modern Mechanix, a number of backyard builders attempted to remedy this situation.

* Land-speed racing is and always has been just as popular a motorsport in Australia as in the United States and Britain – it’s just that less is known of it. Take, for instance, the Anzac and the Fred H. Stewart Enterprise, two early Australian land-speed racers recently profiled over on Kustom Kulture Australia.
