Texas A&M barrier

Engineers at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute are testing the pipe-shaped barrier for the U.S. State Department. Researchers say the passive barrier is designed to keep a 15,000 pound truck from crashing into an overseas embassy complex, and the goal is to keep the bed of the truck from penetrating one meter past the protective side. The barrier is made from a 12-inch diameter steel pipe that’s an inch thick, and the ends are embedded in a concrete base.

Jalopy Jam Up

JalopyJamUp Jalopy Jam Up

It was a gamble. What if you and a couple of old-car-loving pals held a show in the middle of rural Canada, far from any urban centre, down a back road, in an old frontier-style ghost town? And on top of that, what if you kept the focus tight, almost exclusive? Nothing after 1963. Traditional hot rods only. How successful could that be? As it turns out it was whole lot more than successful. It was fabulous. It was the first annual JalopyJamUp.
