    I'll post occasionally some pics that were previously hosted on my site.

    I'll start with some that were from Jim Arnold.

    Sorry they're so small. They were posted in the days of dial-up and were meant to be viewed on an 800 by 600 monitor.

    I'll post another bunch when I get 5 mins.

    Agreed, it's neat as hell, but can you imagine hacking the roof off of a 3 window today?

    And Convair 340 s/n 42 Mainliner Cedar Rapids survives today - converted to turboprops and registered ZK-KFH flying freight in New Zealand.

    The other shot's in Palm Springs and it's a current one too (note the license plate on the Edsel) - I know the owner of the Studebaker; it was in very rough shape before he restored it. He's a big Stude buff and knows them in and out.

    This is my mother and grandmother around the time my parents were married, 1956. That's my Dad's Buick behind them and my mother's aunt is in the back.

    One of the Goad family car dealerships. They sold General Motors products in Texas, the family had a remarkable run, remaining in business continuously or near-continuously from the early 1920s through at least the early 1990s in at least seven different locations.

    That's Nye Frank on the left and Tom Hanna on the right, two terrific tin benders. Nye Frank was the original co-owner of the Peters and Frank "Freight Train" dragster, and my partner (along with Bob Muravez) on the "Pulsator" dragster.

    First thing I look at when I log on on the morning. Coffee and vintage street scenes - followed by the Official 60-66 chevy trucks picture page, and then on to the definitive MILD Custom thread.

    Started a couple years back. I was happy when I finally was able to catch up to the last page!
