Shipwrecked: The Story of the Chrysler Norseman
When I get exiled from the living room, I either go out to the garage and tinker on the hot rods or grab something to read. On one particular night last week, the garage was too cold to paint the parts I was working on.

I had read this particular book many times before, but there’s one car in that book that has always intrigued the heck out of me. It’s the 1956 Chrysler Norseman.

Let’s look at the technical side of how the British defeated Hitler’s V-1.
Bruce Peterson, the REAL Six Million Dollar Man
Each week, a popular TV show opened with the actual NASA footage of the aircraft crash that critically injures Colonel Austin. Every young fan of the show could quote the words that played out during beginning of each show. As a 10 year old kid, I would never have guessed that my paths would later cross with the guy who was actually piloting the aircraft in that famous NASA video.

He’s been in the industry since his teen years, and is the one responsible for my automotive affliction.
