Texas Man Finds Stolen Car Ripped Off in 1970!

In 1968, Bob Russell paid a friend nearly $3,000 for a 1967 Austin Healey.  At the time, he was living in the "City of Brotherly Love".  Well, it turns out that "brotherly love" was the last thing on Russell's mind after he parked it on the street for the night.  To make things worse, Russell, then a graduate student at Temple University, was cash starved to insure the vehicle.

But, there is an unimaginable happy ending to this story, one that rivals the "Miracle On 34th Street".

Number of Uninsured Drivers in Texas Drops in 2012

Again, I'm not really a statistics guy, and readily admit that percentages of  some arbitrary poll excite me about as much as waiting for a  five mile-per-hour, 100 car train to pass through a highway crossing, when I'm already tardy for an appointment.

But, I was pleasantly surprised to hear, that uninsured drivers in Texas has dropped nearly 35% compared to one year ago!   What does this really translate into?  Nearly 2.5 million numbskulls are currently behind the steering wheel today without minimum insurance ( a state law violation), compared to 4.2 knot-heads last year.

Watch What Happens When Deer Collides With Corvette [VIDEO]

I've seen them on a winding two lane highway with my mind racing in nano seconds, so as to avoid a direct hit, while they stand their ground as if it's some territorial rite of passage.

One moment they are grazing at the road's embankment, and then with the stealth of a roadrunner, but clumsy first step, much like a newborn elephant trying to stand after birth, they make that daring dart across the street in a game of "Russian Roulette".

Be Aware of New Obstacle on East Texas Highways [VIDEO]

Had some business in Nacogdoches this morning, and on the journey back to Lufkin, I saw something on the highway that has not appeared before me in 15 years.  Is it because I've been "out to lunch", or have I been sleep walking through abnormal driving trips.  Right about now, you're probably saying to yourself, - "What's that weirdo talking about?...Outside of the collage of splattered, indescribable animals in their final resting place, where's the big mystery?"

What’s Up With The Construction On Timberland Drive In Lufkin?

Have you driven on Timberland Drive lately?  Don't mean to be sour grapes, because re-paving of the road will be a nice gesture to my tires, but in the meantime, the loose rocks for over three miles is tearing up the under carriage of my lime green 1974 Pinto, not to mention the pebbles being unleashed at ramming speed by other motorists -- all in point-blank range of my windshield!

Lost Harley Motorcycle From Japan Tsunami Finds Its Way To Canada [VIDEO]

Just thinking out loud here, but is there any rational explanation as to why we are required to wear seat belts, but don't have to wear a motorcycle helmet - in Texas?  As long as you purchase state mandated credible medical coverage, your locks can be 'blowin in the wind'.

Thought It Would Be A Routine Trip To The Gas Station, But… [VIDEO]

About three weeks have passed since I met a man while filling up the tank of  my 1974 lime green Pinto with 8-track player.  Have you seen me driving around the city?  By the way, want to thank Dornan and Clarice who were kind enough to push me out of the Timberland/Chestnut intersection last Saturday.

The man with the Arkansas license plate on his vehicle started complaining about nothing to do here.  "Been visiting relatives for four days", he said.  Must have been his wife in the front seat with his two children in the back.  10 years old I'm guessing.  He continued his calm rant by telling me that in the small Arkansas community where he resided, there were far more attractions to attend.  His disdain for the word "Lufkin" was evident, almost as if he had just swallowed a grasshopper.
