The Pere Marquette 1225 was built in 1941 by the Lima Locomotive Works, and later donated to Michigan State University in 1957. I've never heard of a university with its own steam locomotive! In 1985, Van Allsburg published the Christmas book “The Polar Express,” later made into a movie with the same name, all inspired by the Pere Marquette 1225.

An ultra-rare 1970 Ford Falcon XY GT in “barn find” condition recently sold at auction for $230,000 in Sydney, Australia. Over 400 bids were placed before the hammer went down.

It’s an all-aluminum, Mercury Racing-built, GM LS7-based V-8 that uses a set of in-house-developed, four-valve DOHC cylinder heads.

I think one can buzz this engine all the way to 8,000rpm.

They all seem to have side exhaust on these ‘66 convertibles.

He saw it driving down the street, turned around and followed the owner and ultimately bought the car. It made its way to Hinsdale shortly after that and was spiffed up a bit but was in remarkably good shape. I used to take it home for lunch (I lived 3 blocks away). As you can see it has one piece power side windows and a very custom one of grille among many other special features that you can spot when you pull up the Mecum add. Every day was fun at Classic Motors!
