Today on Modern Mechanix we look at this crazy contraption for transporting your dog. The general consensus of our commenters seems to be that a) the dog really needs some goggles, b) opening the driver’s door would decapitate poor rover and c) WTF?!?!. In 1956 not only were there still lots of little local phone companies in the US, some of them were run by one person! We also looked at how Houdini performed his tricks, a machine for communicating with deaf and blind people, a pair of young kids who run their own newspaper and a radio picture frame. And remember folks, when it comes time to remodel your house, it’s all about keeping ahead of the Jonses.
