Planes, Trains & Automobiles

1937 Duchess of Hamilton Locomotive
We think we've found long lost relatives at Go Away Garage only they post stuff that we don't think we could ever get away with (their site is not always safe for work or children.) We have shamelessly swiped their photo of the high-speed steam locomotive Duchess of Hamilton that could cruise at over 100 mph on Britain's pre-WWII rail lines.

USS Macon in Hangar One Near Almost Everything Autobody

USS Macon (ZRS-5) at Hangar One, Moffett Field, California, 1933
Great photo found at the site of Go Away Garage of the USS Macon dirigible at Hangar One in Moffet Field, Mountain View, California, just a few miles from Almost Everything Autobody. The photo is from 1933, about 2 years before the Macon was lost at sea (and 75 years before our shop was opened.) The Macon was just 20 feet shorter than the Hindenburg. She carried several airplanes inside her frame and could launch them in mid-air as a floating aircraft carrier.

Watch this great old footage of a large, precision motorcycle drill team in Rome. We love the way the old bikes look.
