We love this long exposure of a winter night in Finland by @anthophotographie.

This time of year often reminds us of Finland. It’s a place we love to visit during the season of long nights to experience the skillfulness in which they use warm light to create spaces for coming together and reflecting and celebrating with the people who you just shared another year of life.

Cybertruck Circa 1966

1 Comment and 2 Shares

In 1966, Ford designed a concept truck they called the Ranger II:

Ford Ranger II

From Ford’s press release:

Ford Division’s Ranger II is an ultra-modern pickup truck with a custom designed passenger compartment. Seen as a two-seater vehicle in the above photo, the Ranger II converts into a four-passenger pickup (below) at the flick of a finger. The rear portion of the cab moves 18-inches into the bed of the truck while a roof section moves up into position and two additional bucket seats fall into place. The Ranger II’s ultra-streamlined windshield is made of specially tempered plastic-type glass. It also features high intensity headlights of rectangular design, extruded aluminum grille and walnut flooring in the cargo bed.

There is more than a passing resemblance to Tesla’s Cybertruck, down to the “specially tempered glass” and “high intensity headlights of rectangular design”:
