Even back in 1965 they were trying to tell drivers to slow down for better fuel mileage.
Why are they not doing commercials like this today?

Yeah , but it's TV. At least you can get this without commercials for the slightly higher rate. I've been considering CBS All Access as a way to watch some excellent shows I've rarely seen , like Big Bang Theory. This show might be good. It's always kinda hard to get the Trekkers aboard for a new show/movie. But they do show up, don't they ?
I just saw a #Lysol advert entitled "Protect like a Mother" that is beyond excellent!
You do not see this every day! Or any day. EVER!!! WOW!
Pappy would be proud,
AV-8B Harriers assigned to the "Blacksheep" of Marine Attack Squadron (VMA) 214 perform a reverse landing onto USS America's flight deck.
Interesting video, that show is usually pretty good.
Two points from GM's VP of propulsion (which I have been saying for some time):
- autonomous ride share cars will be full EV's
- with today's battery technology and with the speed it is developing, he doesn't seem to think high frequency charge cycles are going to be a problem. -

Very cool, but not what I thought it would be. I thought the pilot would back in, which would be a blind maneuver. I'm glad they didn't try it, though.
The efficiency would be $**t but who would not want to drive this kick@$$ Toyota Hilux turned into Tonka truck concept?
Jay's vid find of an early classic that I once owned. Well sort of. Mine was the Scooter.
According to Wikipedia initially they came with either an 1.4L 52 hp or 1.6L 60 Hp motor.
They were upgraded in 77 to 57 Hp or 63 Hp motors.
In 78 they offered a HO version that bumped the HP up to 70.
I am not exactly sure what happened here but you make the call...
A bit of fakery but still funny.

I grew up in the 70's and had no idea they even made a AM/FM, 8 Track with a 23 Channel CB radio in single unit.
