…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Makela Auto Tuning’s 1929 Ford Model A?

1929 Ford Model A

A 1929 Ford Model A isn’t exactly the car that you expect to see for Tuner Tuesday, but when it’s been given a 250 HP rally-spec Cosworth engine for motivation, anything’s possible.

Built by Makela Auto Tuning, it’s basically a pristine condition classic with a few extra ponies added in for fun.

To handle the extra power, the original wood wheels were replaced with wood-look metal, and better seatbelts were installed to keep things under control should the going get tough, but besides that, it’s pretty much 1929 through and through.

What types of numbers are you looking at here?

How about five seconds to sixty and a top speed of 124 MPH?

Unique is one word for it. (Crazy is the other.)

…The Trader Bar lets you invest in your drink?

The Trader Bar

The Trader Bar in Melbourne, Australia adds a new and very interesting twist to the traditional method of ordering your favorite libation. Above the bar, large TVs show the drink market, where drink prices fluctuate every 5-9 minutes depending on public demand. The higher the demand for a particular drink, the higher the cost. You are then faced with the decision of drinking your old favorite that may be at a high price or trying something new for a lower cost. Fear not though, every once in a while the staff will replace the bar music with a large crashing sound and the bar market will crash, causing all drinks to go to their lowest possible price. Plus, with signature cocktails like the Arbitrage, the 1929, and the Cayman Fund, you’re sure to be a bull in no time. Just watch out for those penny stocks, they’ll take your portfolio from you in a hurry.
