img_002headingCandy Borden is candid and proud of the fact that she is a much sought-after nude model. She began by posing for art classes in Paris, France, while studying art. By the time she discovered that she was not going to make it as an artist, Candy had already become popular with several French artists and without realizing it, she was automatically tied into a successful modeling career.

ill_001 Frilly lingerie and soft fur, that’s Betty Price’s only clothing hang-up. She wears all styles well, from miniskirt to evening gown, but when she really feels "dressed" she must have fancy undies and be wearing her furs. She wears a waitress’ uniform at work and can’t wait to get home, shower and "dress up," often for a dinner and dance date.

Not one to mask her feelings, Audrey Gates faces right up to artefact used in jungle Devil Dance. (As if any devil could lure men into his spell as easily as angelic Audrey can!)

Motor racing world champion Jim Clark has been killed in a car crash during a Formula Two race at Hockenheim. Clark, 32, was at the wheel of his Lotus-Cosworth which left the track at 170mph (274km/h), somersaulted through the air and collided with a tree on a remote part of the German track.

The twice Formula One champion, who sustained a broken neck and a fractured skull, was dead before he reached hospital. The cause of the accident is not yet known although experts have suggested it could have been a fault in the steering mechanism or rear-axle suspension. Although it had been raining prior to the race, this is not thought to have caused Clark’s car to skid.

The car seemed to be in a thousand pieces   

Eye-witness

117389_jc2The 80,000 spectators, who were informed of the accident via loudspeaker some two hours later, were stunned by the news. They spontaneously rose to their feet in silent tribute. The only witness to the accident was a track marshal who said: "I was horror-struck. Everything happened so fast. The car skidded off to the left and seemed to dive through the fence only 10 yards (9.14m) from me.

"It went skidding and somersaulting across the grass and hit a tree with a tremendous thump.

Hell of a gap
The 32-year-old farmer from Scotland, who was not married, had been involved in several spectacular accidents during his 15-year career but had never suffered serious injury. Tributes poured in from around the world as the news of Jim Clark’s death was spread. Fellow racing driver Graham Hill, who was in the same race, said Jim Clark’s death "leaves a hell of a gap in the racing scene". He added: "For me as well as for thousands of others, it means the loss of a friend."

Jackie Stewart, also a racing driver, said: "Jimmy’s death is probably the most tragic thing in my experience of motor-racing – probably in the history of motor-racing. "Jimmy was not only a famous driver, he was an international personality, loved by all his fiercest rivals." Clark’s body is due to be flown back to Scotland later today. His funeral is expected to take place Wednesday in Chirnside, near his home.

In Context
Jim Clark was one of more than 100 international racing drivers killed ‘in action’ between 1958 and 1968. Clark, who is still considered by some as the most natural racing driver of all time, won the World Championship twice – first in 1963 and then in 1965.

He won 25 Grand Prix races and was the first Briton to win the gruelling Indianapolis race in America. He was made an OBE for his services to motor racing in 1964.

The Retinal Circus was a divey rock club at 1024 Davie Street, Vancouver that opened in the summer of 1967. This was the Velvet Underground’s second performance there, and the last show before the venue shut down (as ominously suggested by the “Goodbye” at the bottom of the poster) – Text and images found at “Past Tense

01550_4x4

I know that most people love expensive, stylish or powerful car. Personally I usually go for strange, funny or downright silly, like the 1968 Ferves Ranger here.

This is what I manage to find out about the 4×4 micro car. I apologise for the somewhat strange English but the text  was found on the Italian version of Wikipedia, translated from Italian on the Google translator and  then“washed”.

Open four-seater, with a steel body, build on a rectangular steel frame. The windshield can be folded down on the front like the classic Jeep. The car could be ordered with an optional fabric roof, supported by ribs.The Ferves was built with Fiat parts, suspension and brakes using the "600D", the front drive shafts of the Autobianchi Primula and the engine and steering box were from the "500F".

The engine, situated to the rear is an air-cooled parallel twin 499,5 cc. producing 18 hp at 3,000 rpm. The brakes are drums, with independent handbrake on the rear wheels, mechanically controlled. The suspension is independent with coil springs and triangular arms in the front, and obliquely to the rear. The "Ranger" was also produced in a version called "Cargo", with the ability to upload up to 300 kg of payload.

The original brochure could tell that the 4×4 was designed by Ferrari, the same man that designed the Yeti Samas, a vehicle for off-road and agricultural use.
