  On Tuesday, western New York’s most unintentionally hilarious congressional candidate left her mic’s windscreen at home, and held a press conference near the Peace Bridge to draw attention to things she’s largely made up about America’s southern border... (more)

Although I usually root for the old car which has been pretty much left showroom stock, every once in a while something comes along which is so well done I give it a thumbs-up. Like this 1955 Plymouth Belvedere Suburban... (more)

It’s summertime, and there’s nothing more refreshing than a chilled glass of iced tea. Knowing how to prepare homemade iced tea is both inexpensiveand useful, especially if you’re averse to buying sugary bottled teas from the convenience store... (more)

What I’m Reading Now

Hey, it’s summertime in Buffalo, where both irony and cynicism are dead. So, I have nothing to tell you except to point you in the direction of things I’ve been reading lately:  1. Kyiv Post: Pro-Ukraine English-language compendium of news & views about the Ukraine – Russia war... (more)

Cuomo Engages In Dirty Campaign Tactics

There is nothing scarier than a politician with a huge ego and an obsession to win re-election big to set themselves up for a shot at higher office. In New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by all accounts was going to win re-election as Governor last year... (more)

YAK Car Pic of the Day

posted July 28, 12:01 am on Artvoice Daily

Saw this 1956 Chevrolet Two-Ten four-door Friday night on our way home from an evening in Downtown Buffalo. Naturally I went back the next day to take pics.

You could, if you wanted to, buy a Pontiac 6000 coupe from model years 1982-88. The entire 6000 line was discontinued after the 1991 models. For me anyway, the 6000 is the most-forgotten of GM’s front-drive mid-sized cars from the ’80s and ’90s even though it wasn’t the first to disappear — that distinction goes to the Chevrolet […]
