Bicycles of the 1970s The blue Rollfast skoot was the best wheelie bike I tried.I used to borrow it off my friends sister the gearing was just right.She was also my 1st love until I told her I didn't like Donny Osmond her idol.She dumped me before I was even loaded!The demise of the muscle bike was the stick shift causing injuries.My problem was the gooseneck raising my voice.When B.M.X. hit the scene they had a pad there Why didn't I think of that?About 15 yrs.ago I bought a 3sp. CHOPPER $5.00 at a garage sale in bad shape called a museum in Chicago for it's value sold it to a local bike store for $150 they reconditioned it and it now hangs from their ceiling.The Grey ghost Schwinn when I last checked yrs.ago was worth several 1000 dollars!I owned a Iverson 5sp. muscle bike desgned by George Barris the custom car designer of Batmobile.Green Hornet,Surf woody,Pink Panther,Chipmunk,Munster Koach,Dragula,Beverly Hillbillies,Monkeemobile,General Lee,Knight Rider,Starsky & Hutch,Banachek,etc...He did not design the DeLorean in back to the future,though most beleive he did.LONG story lonnng my bike is worth(was) over $1000.00 Because of George Barris' role in design.

Chrysler Turbine The fourth-generation Chrysler turbine engine ran at up to 44,500 revolutions per minute, according to the owner's manual,[1] and could use diesel fuel, unleaded gasoline, kerosene, JP-4 jet fuel, and even vegetable oil. The engine would run on virtually anything and the President of Mexico tested this theory by running one of the first cars—successfully—on tequila. Air/fuel adjustments were required to switch from one to another, and the only evidence of what fuel was being used was the odor of the exhaust.

Jean Harlow 1911-1937 Jean Harlow was one of Hollywood's most popular actresses when she died of renal failure at the age of 26. Plagued with ailments throughout her short life, Harlow was in the midst of shooting scenes with co-star Clark Gable for the film Saratoga on May 29, 1937 when she was taken ill. (Ironically she was playing a scene in which she was supposed to be ill with a fever.) Between scenes she told Gable that she was not feeling well and asked to be taken to her dressing room. It was thought she just had the flu, and the shooting schedule would be delayed only a day or two, but when Harlow's condition worsened, doctors knew Harlow was in far worse shape than initially thought. Kidney failure was a death sentence in 1937. When Harlow succumbed on June 7 filmgoers were shocked. MGM shut down for the day of Harlow's funeral. She was interred in her crypt wearing a dress she had worn in the film Libeled Lady. Saratoga was finished using long-range and short-range doubles for Harlow's scenes and was a surprising box office hit. Even today scholarly audiences watch Saratoga to see if they can tell which scenes are truly Harlow's and which are the doubles'.

Collyer Brothers - Famous NYC Recluses On March 21, 1947, New York City police received an anonymous telephone call reporting a dead body at the Collyer home in what was once a fashionable section of Harlem. The brownstone house was shared by Homer and Langley Collyer, two brothers who gained a measure of celebrity for living like hermits in New York City. The sons of a physician, the Collyer brothers were once prominent and productive citizens. Homer, the older sibling, was an admiralty lawyer. Langley was a concert pianist. Both were Sunday school instructors. Upon the deaths of their parents, though, the brothers shut off themselves from the outside world. They stopped paying taxes and lived without utilities for nearly 30 years. Homer went blind due to hemorrhages and later became paralyzed. Langley became Homer's caregiver. He cooked food on a portable kerosene stove and carried water in buckets from a public park four blocks away. Langley also became a notorious pack rat and scrounger. Venturing out of his house only in the dead of night, he'd shop for whatever food he needed for the day and pick up discarded items of all sorts. He retained newspapers for years so that Homer could catch up on his reading once he regained his sight. He occasionally befriended newspaper reporters who wrote stories about the reclusive Collyer brothers. Langley often fed Homer 100 oranges per week in the hope it would help him regain his eyesight. Fearful of burglars, Langley turned the Collyer house into a maze of pathways and crawl spaces amid the numerous junk and refuse that collected in the house. He built booby-traps to ensnare potential intruders. Based on the anonymous phone tip in March 1947, police broke into the Collyer home and found Homer, clad in a tattered robe, dead in a chair from malnutrition. Nearly a month went by before Langley was found amid the 140 tons of items that had been piled haphazardly throughout the house. Langley's body was found by sanitation workers under a mountain of debris only about 10 feet from where Homer's body had been found. Police theorized that Langley had accidentally tripped one of his own booby-traps and died of suffocation. Helpless and with no one to care for him, Homer slowly died of starvation about two weeks later. Among the wide variety of items found in the Collyer house were 14 pianos, most of a Model T Ford, tons of newspapers, thousands of law books, sexy pin-up posters circa 1910, dressmakers' dummies, unopened mail, 34 passbooks for various bank accounts, and unused tickets to a church function from 1905.
