    Works for me! :D One of the neat things about Monroe is she had so many looks and was able to pull all of them off so well. I'm not too big on the glamour shots of her, but more the girl-next-door thing she had going on.

    And there's certainly nothing wrong with the other girls of that era either...
     
  2. The Misfits is a great, great film. If you never saw it, get it and watch. Monroe is awsome in it, as is Clark Gable and the whole cast. If you ever doubted Monroe's acting ability, you won't after watching The Misfits

    Caption: WOW! Bob,--Looks like you are running 3 pots on a Sharp intake, with Edelbrock finned heads, Mallory ignition, with Advance headers.
    Bet you are runnining a '49 Merc crank stroked 1/4 inch on the inside, with an Isky cam 3/4 race, bored to 3-3/8, Olds intake valves with adjustable tappets, Port & relieved block, & a lightened flywheel with HD clutch assy. & 11 inch disc.-----RIGHT????
    I think thats "Bitchen"---Now I'll knit some tiny "Booties" to hang from your mirror!:)
     
  7. Martin mars flying boat. WW2 killed the flying boat concept, but what fantastic machines! Some Mars are still flying today as firebombers!

  8. Looking at those B-24 pictures makes me think of my late father, Ken A Reynolds. Here's where he spent the freezing winter of 1944-45, living in mud and tents, flying out of Spinazzola Italy with the USAAF 15th Air Force, 460th Bomb Group-The Black Panthers. He was in that nose turret over Casino, the Po Valley, Vienna, and all over Germany, Austria and Poland. Five Bronze Battle Stars and the Air Medal. Screw the Luftwaffe! He was hard of hearing from firing those twin 50's. Thanks Dad.

    Only one is still flying. It was featured in an episode of Smithsonian Channel's 'Mighty Planes'
    Here's the full episode

  12. The only problem with all this vintage stuff is I remember too much of it when it was new.

    Great photos, Gary! And love the background on your father. Sounds like he was a true war hero. My dad has an uncle that (from what I'm told) was one of the highest decorated airmen from the 8th Air Force. He flew in the B-17s, mainly as a radio operator, but found himself shooting and even flying one of them back home. He flew multiple tours. We owe a LOT to that generation.

  14. My Dad would have denied being any kind of hero, he just did his duty.
    Here's a tiny pic of the Black Panther after 50 missions. Yes, 50!
    And my Dad was to be transitioned to B-29's until VJ Day in August 1945.

    50 - that is amazing! Yeah, my dad's uncle was the same way; my dad says he didn't even like talking about it much. Luckily, someone was able to talk him into writing a short history, of which I have a copy tucked away that has been read several times over. I think they earned every bit of recognition and then some by serving like they did.

  25. Also 1937, Imperial Japanese Army soldiers celebrate victory in Shanghai China.
    WW2 had already begun, we just didn't know it yet. The ugly result of unbridled militarism and nationalism, sprinkled with religious fanaticism.
