Four-Links – women of trucking, Gut Terk, Frank Fox, snow plowing

Published in

This week, The Women of Trucking blog took a look back at the pioneers who fought their way into the male-dominated industry, going as far back as Luella Bates (pictured above) and Lillie Elizabeth McGee Drennan, both credited with being the first licensed female truck driver.

It’s a few weeks late for us to point this out, but this San Francisco Chronicle profile of outlaw biker Allan “Gut” Terk is interesting.

All the drivers who raced in the first Indianapolis 500 no doubt had remarkable lives, though it sounds as if Frank Fox, who drove competitively with just one leg, might have a few of his competitors beat. The First Super Speedway tried to track down more on Fox’s life.

To commemorate — if that’s the word — this past week’s back-to-back nor’easters, The Old Motor gathered a group of images of vintage snow removal equipment.

Finally, a reporter for WBKO recently got a chance to venture down into the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole to see what it’s like and find out what the museum chose to leave beneath the SkyDome. (via)
