    Swede Ralston flying through the hangar (his name is painted upside down as he flew upside down (inverted six) quite a lot), no auto in this photo, but it's pretty darn cool without one.

  9. I remember this from growing up in Florida. Built in 1888 as a luxury tourist hotel on Ormond Beach, it was THE place for the wealthy snowbirds. The site of the early beach speed trials. Was also the anchor for the AACA swap meet that evolved into the now famous Turkey Run in Daytona. Suffered a fire and was torn down in the 90's.

    That's a thorough list of the riders and their horses, but you left out the most beautiful horse, (in my mind) Diablo, who's real name was "Pair O' Dice", ridden by the Cisco Kid ! They used as many as 4 different horses in the filming, because he was so valuable. I have seen every Roy Rogers TV Show, at least a half a dozen times, and all of his movies as well, he was truly a great man. During one of his interviews, he talked about having Trigger, Buttermilk, and Bullet stuffed, and with a smile said, "Now Dale Sleeps With One Eye Open"!
     
  17. looks like the hotel from movie "some like it hot"?

    Look at that, Larry Hovis, Seargent Carter of "Hogan's Heroes", wrote the screenplay. So obscure there isn't much info on it.

  23. Ah, the site I was looking at left him out (you'd think they'd've added him in since they identified Panchos horse). Sheesh.

    There is one in Sequoia and another In Yosemite. There may even be another in the Redwoods, not sure about that since I haven't been there.. I have driven through the other two which are the best known ones, but the Pioneer Cabin tree was really an interesting one.

    In the late '80's, I had the privilege to work with my dad, building props at the old TNN.Every fall, they would tape Hee-Haw.One day, dad said, hey sport, somebody wants to meet you.When I raised up rather fast, slightly dizzy, there stood this legend before me. Big smile, squinting eyes, hat, boots and all.Super nice guy to me.I never will forget it.
