ON THIS DAY in 1904, Heath, American driver, wins the great automobile race!

ON THIS DAY IN 1904, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “WESTBURY, L.I. — An American driver, George Heath, with a 90-horse power Panhard car, won the great Vanderbilt Cup race for automobiles this afternoon. Albert Clement of France, driving a Clement-Bayard 80-horse power car, finished second. [Herb] Lytle, driving a Pope-Toledo twenty-four horse power car, was third. Heath, the winner, was born at Astoria, L.I., but for several years has been racing in France. On unofficial time, Heath won the race by 1 minute and 28 seconds. The finish between he and Clement was wildly exciting. Heath had started ten minutes ahead of Clement and during the early rounds opened up a big lead. Then his car met with mishaps and Clement passed him. The last two rounds of the race were a desperate struggle between these two men, Heath to maintain his lead of ten minutes, and gain

EPA Administrator says American public “isn’t ready” for California’s ban on new gas cars [Video]

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler spoke with Yahoo Finance’s Alexis Christoforous in a special conversation for Concordia’s 2020 Virtual Annual Summit entitled “From Wildfires to Pipelines,” focusing on the state of environmental affairs in the United States. He comments on the new California mandate which calls for no new gas vehicles by 2035.

Video Transcript

ANDREW WHEELER: I don’t think the public is ready for that at this point. You know, under the Obama-Biden cafe standards during their administration, they set their standards that would have called for 50% EVs by 2025. And the data we were looking at over the last couple of years, when we wrote our regulation, our cafe standards show that the American public is just not embracing the electric vehicles to that extent. I don’t know how they get there by 2035.

There’s a lot of questions. I think it’s more aspirational at this point and

It’s been a rough year for Detroit’s big car event, the North American International Auto Show.

First, it was moved from its longtime spot in frigid January to a new reimagined and expanded event in the summer, but those plans were scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic. (TCF Center, the longtime host of the show formerly known as Cobo Center, was turned into a field hospital for COVID-19 patients, but it was never used to its full capacity. It closed in May.)




Then, earlier this month the organizers of the Los Angeles auto show announced it was moving its show from November to May, smack dab in the middle of the New York and Detroit shows — what one auto journalist called a “declaration of war” on both.


On Monday, NAIAS announced it was moving the Detroit

6 Shocking Facts About Wallis Simpson, the Scandalous American Who Stole King Edward VIII’s Heart

The Queen may be Great Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, but there’s another woman who forever changed the country’s monarchy: Wallis Simpson.

The American-born Duchess of Windsor, who died this week in 1986, is the reason Queen Elizabeth eventually took the throne. As any fan of The Crown could tell you, Simpson’s eventual husband, King Edward VIII, gave up the throne after less than a year because his family (and parliament) wouldn’t accept Simpson, the woman he loved (and a two-time divorcée) as Queen.

Edward’s abdication (after which he was known as the Duke of Windsor) put his brother, George VI, on the throne, thus making the present Queen Elizabeth II the heir apparent.

It’s this history-altering scandal that Simpson is best remembered for, but she lived for 50 fascinating years after her husband’s abdication – and led an equally interesting life before she ever rubbed elbows with royalty. Here are just
