    Thanks, Maggie. I think I get it. While they were lowering the surrounding ground level during the regrade project, the tracks were supported on wood so they could remain in use.

    Remarkable how a single shot can spark an interesting side story.

    Man you have a good memory. What street was this on or what is the name of the high rise. I'm going to have to check it out. I've lived in Victoria most of my life. Live in Sidney now. In 1962 I was just about finished high school. Guess I had other things on my mind

    ^^ Yeah, lots of detail in that one - Looks like a halibrand quick change, and maybe Buick brake drums. It must be good to have GM's prototype build facility at your disposal when you want to build a Hot Rod.

    Some more, based on the criteria of interesting, appealing, not familiar.

    Well, good luck with that one, Mate.

    From the original caption:
    The Nashville Police Department’s armored emergency chase car, a 1935 Buick Model 90 seven-passenger sedan with bulletproof glass able to stop .45 caliber rounds in all windows, steel plates on all sides, fender guards to protect the tires, armored window port to fire from and heavy armor over the grill to protect the radiator.

    My point is that while it may not be photoshop, when you research all his steam locomotive and other shots that appear to be period it is disappointing to find that they were all set up. Diesels were already the order of the day, and he had all those steam shots in the landscapes staged with the help of the railroads. Not to take away from his talent as a photographer, but they are not the candids they appear is all.

    upload_2017-2-18_9-31-29.png The HISSO V8 aircraft engines were dirt cheap surplus after WWI, many got cut in half to make four cylinder engines for dirt track race cars. Check out the early ones on this link. Bob http://winfield.50megs.com/Hisso.htm

    I got to sit in this one before it was shipped to Germany for a TOTALLY underseved restoration back to the 1908 Mercedes GP car. The car finished in 4th place in the first INDY 500 driven by Spencer Wisehart. Bob
