  4. Well, I wish more people would post!
    I probably shouldn't say it, but after the uh, ...meltdown by mods over the thread, I think people are just afraid to post. Ryan is a reasonable and GOOD GUY, as long as folks use good judgement, there is no reason not to post.
    I sound like an old crank I gueuss, but it's not possible to understand today if you don't understand yesterday. History is invaluable, it's the sum total of everything humans have done.
    Enough philosophy, sorry. POST AWAY!

    If I had old interesting pictures, believe me I would post 'em. But like many here I am in awe of those you put up. Thanks again!
     
  6. Well thanks.
    But I have to say again, 99.99 % of these pics are just taken from the web. A few research skills help, but Google IS good ( at least for this, they SUCK as a corporation)!
    But thanks again.

    You were lucky, as a child, to have caught salmonella. Much better than what you have caught later in life after the strip club opened.

  12. Interesting! I'm a huge fan of the Navy, I'll search NavSource some time to see if I can figure out what ship this is. As a kid I was awed by the Reserve Fleet at Tounge Point ( including, I think Iowa) on the Columbia River and the row after row of ships at Tumwater ,Washington. I posted on another thread about loving to go to the dismanteling yards to gawk at surplus as they tore down the WW2 Navy. Clear until the 1970's! At one point I remember 5 inch gun barrels stacked like cordwood.I visted a bunch of ships in the 50's and 60's as my Dad was a machinery kind of guy ( though he was USAAF in WW2).

    Being a middle ager (by what I see here on this site, and the fact that I just turned 55.) I love seeing the pictures that have been getting posted recently. Thank you to Gary Reynolds, and swi66, and all the others, great photos. I do have a question or 2, maybe 3. First is there a site that has pictures from then and now, of the same spot, or vehicle? Where can one find more of these photos? Last but not least, I have wondered many times just how many of the cars, or trucks have we seen in a damaged state after that picture was taken in another picture, right here, on this thread
     
  15. Google my friend! Try both the web and images, and use different combinations of words to search. It makes a huge difference in what you results you get. Trial and error is the only way.
    I don't know of any specific sites that have what you mentioned, BUT...I'm sure you can find what you want if you are persistent and creative in searching in any case I guarantee you will find tons of interesting stuff, things that may be OT here, but are amazing and cool!
    Experiment, see what you find.

    Google Earth is another venue...I have yet to find out if I can copy a location on "street view," but when there are photos posted near the site, you can copy them...that's what I did on my post of the Royal Laundry above..I have used Google Earth to find out what is a the location of many of the old speed shops, hot rod manufacturers, machine shops, etc......if there is a way to copy off Google Earth street view, please school us!

    Gary, good point, it's not that hard to find old photos with cars, etc...the mods have been good about the pictures as long as they have old cars, trucks, etc. in them...most cities have a historical site that has been digitized, and local libraries often have on-line photo collections (the Los Angeles County Library is a great example)...
