Some of them are highly collectible, especially if the stinger is intact.The basic Kaywoodie would be close to
$100 in today’s money. I never thought of them as being a particularly expensive pipe. I have a Kaywoodie made in the 1930’s. I suppose I should give it more respect.
That Nash was the baddest thing on the road in its day. Either your Shelby or my Dodge Hellcat is probably a very apt comparison.15 to 50 mph in less than 13 seconds! I suppose it seemed quick. I'm guessing the 3.3 seconds, 0 - 60 mph, for a Mustang Shelby GT500 (stock), will seem slow to some future codgers.
I only wish I had a Shelby! My neighbor across the street eases his GT500 out of the garage every other week or so for a bit of exercise. I'm not sure how fast it runs, but it sure sounds sweet.That Nash was the baddest thing on the road in its day. Either your Shelby or my Dodge Hellcat is probably a very apt comparison.
It's like the Kawasaki K1back in it's day. 900cc engine with 4 cylinders of Japanese fury pushing 87 horses to the wheel. If you had one it was because you had a death wish according to the codgers of its day.
I had forgotten all about the Nash. Thank you Columbo for bringing that back.
I did something right too after yesterday's disappointing smoke: I went with Sir Walter in my Stanwell straight billiard with the acrylic stem for a good 30 minutes' smoke, only 1 relight, no tongue bite or dryness. Sir Walter rarely fails to deliver.Tonight I was smoking SWR watching TV and gravity fed a bowl very lightly and realized a loose pack vs. a pack only slightly tighter made the smoke taste like an entirely different and better blend - sweeter and milder I’ll need to pay more attention in future.
