Feeling nostalgic lately? With spring around the corner and the focus on things being new and fresh maybe now’s as good a time as ever to do a little look back and focus on revivals…revivals of the beautiful look and feel of some classic cars.
If you or someone you know loves tinkering around on engines, especially of the old variety, maybe they’ll also like to build some puzzles that celebrate the sleekness of some classic Chevys. Seeing how things fit and match together to create a seamless new product is an activity for both the car-lover and the puzzle-lover, after all!

If you are anything like me, you can’t wait for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby coming out this May, even though historically they have failed. The Great Gatsby has a double charm—it’s an American classic, but it’s also adored by the average reader. It’s going to be a challenge to turn the introspective book into a successful movie, but let’s keep our fingers crossed and our hopes up. Here are some puzzles that I think Fitzgerald might like to do during breaks from writing if he were alive today. Here’s hoping he’ll also like the new take on his novel.

There were days when, if you had a car, you could wander the streets safely. Traffic jams did not exist, and there were less rules and, of course, less cars. Environmental issues were just starting to make surface, there was enough fuel for everybody and car makers and customers didn’t worry about fuel consumption. In these golden days, you needed some serious mechanic skills if you wanted to drive your car around the country. There were no companies to call in the middle of the night if your car broke down on an unknown country road.
The cars that you used to see during those days are now considered antiques. But these classic cars will always remain in our memory, not only for their beautiful design and sometimes outrageous performances, but also for the way of life and decades they stood for.
