Weekend Roundup -- 02-18 (for letter "B")


Weekend Roundup:
Starts with "B."  Weeks favorite.  New Beginning. 

(1) Starts with "B"  "B" is for Bellaire, a Red 1957 Chevy Bellaire Convertible.  It is the First month's picture for my 2018 NAPA Calendar.  BTW, I had a very good friend who had one of these new.  Both he and the Chevy Bellaire were consumed in a Gas Station Fire.  Someone lit a cigarette, my friend was working at the station.

The specs:  Either a 265 c.i.d. or a 283 c.i.d. engine.  My flathead Hot Rodded 1952 Ford 2-Door** would outrun or keep even with all the overhead valve 1955-6-7 Chevy's



(2) Weeks favorite:  Mood helpers:

 
Happy MacDonald's Balloons and
Hopeful Promise (Rainbow after Rain):


(3) New Beginning:  My Chevy Bellaire is also a New Beginning as it is to be found on my NAPA Auto Parts Classic Car Calendar, New for January 2018

As I have mentioned before, I have them from the second to this one.  These NAPA Auto Parts  Calendar had their beginnings in the 1970's.

** Note:
My 1952 Ford 2-door, hot rodded, had a Mercury Flathead valve V-8 engine that I built, bored and stroked, ported and relieved, with a "Street cam".  It had an automatic transmission, looked stock, except for upgraded seats.  We calculated it to be 297 c.i.d.

It was a very pretty green, I bought it two years old.  I don't know how fast it would go but the speedometer only went to 100 and I drove it so fast you could look down into the instrument and not be able to see the needle.  Those were my 'fast days'.

4.1. LagniappeBMW Car Logo (starts with "B")
found at http://www.car-logos.net/

4.2. LagniappeBraunschweiger (starts with "B") Snack that I take with my Tri-glyceride Meds (take with food" directions). I buy them at our New (beginningsAldi's Grocery Store for $1.99 for a one pound package.  My other name brand had gone up to $3.99 for eight ounces at our name brand store.
BTW, you may call this treat "liverwurst".

Little Red Wagon

"Little Red Wagon" Foto Tunes
[incidentally, I'm sitting in a little red wagon in my profile picture]

 

1970's VolksWAGON, found in Montevideo, Uruguay, January 1, 1917.
[Click on the pictures for a larger view.  Back button returns to here.]

We were making a pit stop potty-wise, and not many places were open on the New Year Holiday.  Not even MacDonald's.  But this gas station was kind and loaned us the use of his facilities 

This Little Red VW find was a beauty in my book. I'd like to have seen and heard it run. I believe it is used for street purposes?  Street racing?  I'm too old for that now though my Mustang GT strains at times but I hold it back.

Below are a couple other "Little Red Wagons"
that I found on our Montevideo city tour that day:

  
 
I had been wanting to post the VW find, quite a surprise for me.  But for today? 
 
I didn't know this song existed until I Googled "Little Red Wagon" and I've never heard of Miranda Lambert (search) before.  You may have, I don't keep up with the moderns songs, it's mainly the Oldies and Classic Rock songs for me.

"Little Red Wagon"

You only love me for my big sun glasses
And my Tony Lomas
And my Dodge Dart classic
You said "I'll be Johnny and you'll be June
I'll ride with you to the moon"
But guess what?

[Chorus:]
You can't ride in my little red wagon
The front seat's broken and the axle's draggin'
You can't step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain't my fault when I'm walkin' jaws droppin' like
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah

Oh, heaven help me
I've been sowing wildflower seeds
And chasing tumble weeds
But that's just who I be
And you're just trying to slow this rolling stone
But I'm on to you baby
So guess what?

[Chorus:]
You can't ride in my little red wagon
The front seat's broken and the axle's draggin'
No you can't step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain't my fault when I'm walkin' jaws droppin' like
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah

Oh, you only love me for my big sun glasses
And my Tony Lomas
I live in Oklahoma
And I've got long, blonde hair
And I play guitar, and I go on the road
And I do all the shit you wanna do
And my dog does tricks
And I ain't about drama, y'all
And I love my apron
But I ain't your mama!
So guess what?

[Chorus:]
You can't ride in my little red wagon
The front seat's broken and the axle's draggin'
No you can't step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain't my fault when I'm walkin' jaws droppin' like
Ooh, ahh, ooh, ahh
Oooohh, yeah. Ahhhhh. Oooooohh. Ah
