    This pic was obviously from across the pond, probably England (spelling of "tires" is different over there). We love this photo for it shows something about the historic Corvette being an artistic form that translate into any language back then: drop dead gorgeous!

    Anyone know where I can find a high resolution of this photo, love to see it in the Harley Earl book someday!

  13. Chickie James....Pix? Anyone even recognize the name?

    I'm hoping someone here has some pix they can post...Chickie James was a 1950s and 60's working model and actress who resembled Marilyn Monroe and was commonly utilized as a model for artists painting novel covers and editorial art in which the Art Director wanted a Marilyn-looking character. The great agent Ed Balcourt represented her but photos of her are rare....I'd appreciate anything, even painted art of her-I'm trying to show a fellow artist that seems to believe that Marilyn did a lot of novel art posing before she went Hollywood when in fact many of those covers were the great Chickie James. Thanks in advance-Mark

    Your thinking of Buford T. Justice in Smokey and the Bandit.
    If I recall correctly, Joe Higgins' Sheriff character said "You in a heap o' trouble boy"!

    Ford later bought the Willys factory in brazil and the Willys cars and Jeeps that where made there was sold with Ford name after that.

    The Willys CJ5 became the Ford U50. (don't know about the CJ6, but it might have become the Ford U60.)
    The Willys Itamaraty bacame a Ford Itamaraty.
    The Willys F-75 stationwagon became the Ford Rural. (there was a pickup version also.)
    The Willys Aero became Ford Aero.

    Ford Also became co-owner of a factory with VW, and made some Ford named Volkswagen also!

    Ford Verona / Volkswagen Apollo
    Ford Escort Mk V / Volkswagen Pointer
    Ford Orion / Volkswagen Logus
    Ford Galaxy and Versailles / Volkswagen Santana
    Ford Royale / Volkswagen Quantum

    FlickR member ggaabboo posted this pic of his/her grandfather and his car last October.
    He/she wanted to know is the supposition of Austin 10 saloon is correct. Whatever it IS,
    it's a NICE car!;)

    FlickR member JosefNovak posted this beautiful photo just last February. His cryptic notes
    seem to indicate it was shot in Switzerland (looks right! WOW!), using a process called Photo-
    chrom (Photochrome?). It appears to capture an idyllic moment in a peaceful day, prior to
    world war, perhaps in the mid-'30s? From the color, it appears Photocrom may have been
    a real-photo process similar to Lumiere's Autochrome, which was discussed last week on this
    thread.

    [​IMG] Sinking of the GEORGIA LEE and DeSoto U of Wisconsin neg 12957


    This photo from the University of Wisconsin Library collections is thanks to a great
    river-boating history site called LeeLines.com, covering the age of that line that plied
    the river trade from 1862 all the way to 1926. This is apparently one of only two known
    photos of the wreck and sinking of the Georgia Lee and the DeSoto, originally named
    the James Lee. The incident occurred in February 1918 when the then slower-flowing
    river formed a solid ice gorge, crushing both vessels' hulls. That's apparently the De-
    Soto at left, converted into an excursion boat in 1914.

    This 10-foot alligator gar was caught and photographed at Mhoon Landing
    (correct spelling) in the Tunica County, Mississippi, in 1910. David Foster
    posted the public-domain pic on FlickR for us all to marvel at. This pic is
    from the U.S. Museum of Natural History and was shot by a government-
    employed photographer, so -- being the earliest pic of such an amazing
    predatory critter:eek: -- it appears all over the internet.

    Gars this length, though not unprecedented, are VERY rare nowadays, and
    the alligator gar is considered threatened to endangered in most of the many
    states it used to frequent throughout the Mississippi drainage system. In fact,
    they are no longer found AT ALL in many of those states. After the river
    channelization that began in the '30s, this huge fish's range is now probably
    only a tenth of what it once was (big gars USED to thrive in brackish back-
    water acreage along many rivers, which is now dry and farmed, behind
    earthen dikes).

    To me, it seems a shame, since these scary, toohy predators date back a
    hundred million years. [Incidentally, one of the wildest areas where the
    alligator gar still thrives is in stretches of the Atchafalaya River -- STILL
    remote enough from mankind to spawn rumored sightings of the suppos-
    edly EXTINCT Ivory Bill Woodpecker!;)]

    Around 1990, my wife and daughter were walking on a beach in East TX and came upon a 6ft alligator gar dead on the beach. They had never even heard of one of these and thought they had discovered a missing link! One of the park rangers explained to them what it was.

    :D ALTERNATE CAPTION - "THE SAD
    PRICE OF PROGRESS! - As the city
    continued to grow in size, competitors
    in Gotham City's famed "Street Car
    Drag Races' soon began finding the
    city streets so clogged with automotive
    and pedestrian traffic, that finally, in
    1934 the entire series had to be
    cancelled!
