The 1958 model year began the exposed four-headlamp treatment that would continue through 1962, but rear chrome trunk spears were unique to 1958.

    Car: Ford Bronco

    Year: 1969

    What makes it special: Ford's Bronco model were produced from 1966 to 1996. They can be divided into two categories of early Broncos (1966–77) and full-size Broncos (1978–96). Built on its own platform, it was Ford's answer to Jeep's CJ-5 and International Harvester's Scout 4-Wheel Drive models. The early Broncos were offered in wagon, half-cab, and a less popular roadster configuration. The roadster version was dropped and the sport package, which later became a model line, was added. Its long option list included front bucket seats, a rear bench seat, a tachometer, and a CB Radio, in addition to more functional items like a tow bar, auxiliary gas tank, a  snowplow, a winch, and a Post-hole digger.

The 1964 model was similar to the Chevelle forward of the B-pillars and carried both "Chevelle" and "El Camino" badges, but initially Chevrolet marketed the vehicle as a utility model and Chevelle's most powerful engines were not available.

  • Beer Mug: Rampage

    Name: Rampage
    Brewery: Black Diamond Brewing Co.
    Location: Concord, California
    Taste: We didn’t want this to be Jagged Edge on steroids. Thus rather than using the same hop combination, we chose more fruit forward hops to balance out the alcohol in the beer. The medium crystal malt adds a very subtle color and sweetness.  Nugget and Millenium hops are used to bitter. Citra is a new variety to the market that has some similar properties to Simcoe but a more pleasant fruitiness; pineapple/mango aromas mixed in with pine and cat's pee. Centennial brings candied orange and Amarillo adds big grapefruit.  The liquid in the fermenter is dry-hopped three times- each dry hop equal in weight to the dry hop of Jagged Edge. This multi-stage dry hopping is meant to layer the different hop aromas.
    What makes it special?  The beer is fermented cool to suppress fusel alcohol development, and dextrose is added to allow it to attenuate out highly, leaving very little residual sugar. The idea was to avoid that syrupy "gumsmacker" effect that’s sometimes found in Imperial IPAs. Other than barrel aged beers, this is by far our most labor intensive and expensive beer to make. Rampage fans are legion and we believe they deserve nothing less than the very best we can give them. Read More

  • AJ's Car of the Day '68 Mercury Cougar XR7-G 428 Cobra-Jet

    Car: Mercury Cougar XR7-G 428 Cobra-Jet

    Year: 1968

    What makes it special: The first generation Cougar finally gave Mercury its own "Pony car," and slotted between the Ford Mustang and the Ford Thunderbird, the Cougar would be the performance icon and eventually the icon for the Mercury name for several decades. The Cougar was available in base and XR-7 models, and only came in a two-door hardtop body style.

  • TOP 10: ACTION FIGURES OF ALL TIME

    Jessica Alba's likeness has been committed to at least four action figures at this point: the ‘Dark Angel’ doll, the ‘Fantastic Four’ figure, at least two ‘Sin City 2‘ mini-Albas — but that doesn’t mean that the actress keeps the little hers around the house. In fact, Alba keeps them where they belong. In storage. Away from her family. Considering how racy her latest doll is, that’s probably a good idea. Alba hit ‘Conan‘ to chat about the latest ‘Sin City’ feature — the long-titled ‘Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For,'and the host couldn’t resist asking about the latest Alba doll to make it shelves. As the actress plays a murderous stripper in the film, it’s not too shocking that this one isn’t for kids. It’s also just not really for Alba.

  • Beer Mug: Streetcar Kolsch

    Name: Streetcar Kolsch
    Brewery: Avondale Brewing Company
    Location: Birmingham, Alabama
    Taste: The Streetcar Kolsch is a German style ale that has flavor and aroma profiles much like a lager or a pilsner. This beer is our lightest and most sessionable brew in our line up. The Streetcar’s engine is going full steam and packed with flavor. Our Kolsch is nicely balanced with low hop bitterness and a light malt backbone. This beer has a medium body, a fizzy head and a slightly cloudy straw yellow hue. The Streetcar Kolsch is low in alcohol, bursting with flavor and extremely refreshing which makes this brew perfect for any occasion.
    What makes it special? Between the age of the horse drawn buggy and the modern three-car garage, there was a time when the streetcar was the greatest invention of the day. Every day businessmen and school children alike would grace the No. 41 streetcar to and from Avondale, making stops at Avondale Park, Lakeview, and Forest Park.  Read More

  • AJ's Car of the Day '70 Chevrolet Nova SS396

    Car: Chevrolet Nova SS 396

    Year: 1970

    What makes it special: The Chevrolet Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968 before the Chevy II nameplate was dropped. Nova was then the nameplate for the 1969 through 1979 models. The 1970 Chevrolet Nova continued as the entry-level Chevrolet and little changed in appearance compared to the 1969 version, the one distinction being a new egg crate-patterned grille. Like the 1969 model, the 1970 Chevrolet Nova was offered only as a two-door coupe or four-door sedan.
