This is an empty vintage brass fire extinguisher made by the General Fire Extinguisher Co. and it is  model 85HD.  It is the 1 qt. size and is about 14" long and comes with it's original mounting bracket which has a new coat of maroon   paint.  It has been polished and lacquered and as you can see in the pictures, it displays very well.  Someone did a lot of work on the website "vintagefe"  and that site states that General fire extinguishers were featured in Chris-Craft accessories from 1937 to 1960.  This would be the correct extinguisher for a 1949 - 1952 Chris-Craft boat. The extinguisher has some small dings  on both sides of the brass label but don't show up well in the pictures, they are that small.  The T pump handle moves in and out as designed.  The brass label retains nearly all of it's original paint but some has faded over the last 60+ years. The would make a great addition to a collection or mounted on a vintage boat, car, or truck.  Please check out my other vintage fire extinguishers I have listed.

With the system expected to be up and running within 12 months, Toyota has revealed how it is expected to work.

Slather your Fiesta with bacon!

Today, trends have little in the way staying power. In fact, we're astonished that the default image-meme typeface is still Impact. The recent MTV VMAs inspired much hand-wringing about Miley Cyrus' tweakoid performance, but the truly startling thing was that *NSYNC was pretty much as close as the show got to a legacy act.

Lotus takes the top off Exige S

Lotus is adding an Exige S Roadster to its lineup, based on the new Exige we saw at the Frankfurt auto show. Unfortunately the road-car version will not come to the United States. The Roaster is powered by the same 345-hp V6 as in the hardtop Exige, as well as in the bigger Evora.
