This photo provided by Maltz Auctions shows Wyndclyffe Castle in Rhinebeck, N.Y. The dilapidated mansion in upstate New York believed to have inspired the phrase “Keeping up with the Joneses” is on the auction block. The mansion was built in 1853 in Rhinebeck as the country house of Manhattan socialite Elizabeth Schermerhorn Jones, a member of a wealthy family and aunt of American novelist Edith Wharton. The property’s elegance is said to have prompted owners of nearby Hudson Valley estates to build even bigger mansions, giving birth to the idiom “Keeping up with the Joneses.” (Maltz Auctions via AP) THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

With an advertising and marketing campaign stating the facts, the midsize Pontiac Tempest/LeMans could be optioned with the GTO package, featuring a 389ci Tri-power (3-dual carburetors) engine, dual exhaust and hood scoops. Pictured here is a ’65 model and its 2005 offspring.
