    That beetle is dope. Wide body kits make almost anything look awesome, when done well.

    Probably dropping the kids off at soccer practice then heading to the mall.

    The annual Bantam Jeep Festival is being held this weekend in Butler, PA, about 40 minutes North of Pittsburgh…Butler is the birthplace of the Bantam, precursor to the Jeep. An interesting story of a small shop’s design and prototype being given to the “big guys” to produce…+600,000 of the vehicles in 4 years during WWII.

    I think these are really sharp looking.

    Hoping in a few years they add a third row option.

    The Lexus GX has a third row option, not that I've priced one out or anything.

    Yup- also really nice looking, but a $12k premium to the Yota. And you need to spec the second level up (+$5k) to get 2nd row captain's chairs which I think are vastly preferable to a second row bench.

    Toyota’s configurator isn’t working at all on my iPhone, but I did find this Car and Driver staff exercise in Land Cruiser builds: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a4...ld-spec-price/

    Nice looking rig, not the rig I need. And it needs the vintage putty/dust color to be available for the 1958 trim.

    I’d have to sit in the 1958 trim version to determine what it’s like. Supposedly this lower priced version will use lower grade plastics and materials. I like the idea of fabric seats and no sunroof but I do like a higher grade sound system.

    So I’d have to sit in one and play around to see if the entry level is ‘good enough’. I’d bet it is. Anyway, I doubt I’m getting anything but it’s a fun exercise.

    Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh...cool place to visit if you're in town...from the website.

    In 1879, the Old Residents of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania established a historical society to help preserve local history. Five years later, the name changed to the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania and has been in continuous existence for more than 135 years. Originally, membership in the historical society was limited to men who had lived in the region for 50 years or more, though the rules changed within a few years to include women and younger people. In those days, members enjoyed lectures and country outings and got together to reminisce. Perhaps most importantly, early Historical Society members worked to preserve archival materials and objects of historic significance, forming the foundation of the History Center’s collections.

    The Historical Society brought our region’s history to the public. In 1908, it celebrated the region’s 150th anniversary; in 1911, the centennial of steamboat navigation; in 1958, the region’s bicentennial celebration; and in 2008, the region’s 250th anniversary. These events served as the basis for the many events, publications, educational programs, and exhibitions that the History Center offers today. Early meetings of the Historical Society were held in members’ homes and churches, though a significant step was taken in 1893 when the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh at Schenley Park offered space for the archives. In 1914, after securing the funding, the Historical Society built its own building on Bigelow Blvd. In 1996, the History Center moved into its current home in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.

    With the opening of the Smithsonian wing in 2004, the History Center became the largest history museum in Pennsylvania. The new wing allows better opportunities found in our affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution. The additional space added the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, the Mueller Education Center, the Special Collections Gallery, and the McGuinn Gallery for traveling exhibitions. Since its opening, the Smithsonian wing has been home to various exhibitions, including Pennsylvania’s Civil War, Vatican Splendors, 1968: The Year that Rocked America, Pittsburgh’s Lost Steamboat: Treasures of the Arabia, We Can Do It! WWII, Toys of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, #Pixburgh : A Photographic Experience, Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission. In 2014, the History Center opened the new Museum Conservation Center, located directly behind the museum on Penn Avenue. The nine-story building houses the museum’s artifacts under one roof with Smithsonian-quality storage.

    Cool. The Springfield (Mass.) Museums has a 1975 Corbin electric motorcycle. I guess Corbin was quite the bike guy, and set a record at Bonneville on an electric bike.
