    This is his '49 Chevy he (my Dad) fixed up. This photo however, was taken just before it was crushed when interest was lost and other projects were on the way (his '40 Ford coupe, '57 Chevy, and '55 Chevy). He painted the flames and raced it around his father's concrete plant (Maurice Concrete Products) when he was 15 years old. The flames were strongly influenced by a Car Craft magazine featuring a flame paint job on a mildly kustomized '56 Chevy from either '60 or '61. The car was a medium blue with yellow flames, he never got time to finish doing the tips I don't believe. All painted on the 4th of July in of '62.

    (The crane on the back of the truck which my grandfather constructed - a truck that was part of Maurice Concrete products.)

    Another classic damsel in distress: Elsa Lanchester. Newly
    "transplanted" to the U.S. from England with hubby Charles
    Laughton, she won permanent public recognition with her
    brilliantly quirky and very poignant 1935 portrayal of the
    Frankenstein monster's made-for (not mail-order!) mate
    in the Browning-directed "Bride of Frankenstein." For my
    money (and maybe Mel Brooks', too), even better as a
    sequel than the '32 original "Frankenstein," which also
    starred Boris Karloff. Above famous production photo,
    THANKS to the New York Daily News!)

    Though Elsa is unarguably best remembered for "Bride
    of Frankenstein," some may be surprised to learn that
    her entertainment career lasted over 50 years, from 1925
    until 1980! Stop and think. You probably won't be surprised
    to remember her distinctive persona in movies ranging from
    1957's "Witness for the Prosecution," "Lassie Come Home"
    ('43), and "The Razor's Edge" ('46), to "Mary Poppins" ('64),
    "Willard" ('71), "That Darn Cat!" ('65) and "Murder by Death"
    ('76).

    Elsa clowning a tad between takes.
    Photo THANKS to thehorrordrunx![/QUOTE]

    AND, if you remember, there is the I Love Lucy episode when Lucy is going to take the train to Florida with Ethel, loses the tickets and ends up sharing a ride with Elsa Lanchester in a Dodge Wayfarer (and trying to change the tire, jacks the jack head through the top of the fender)

    The story is kinda backwards. Pitts S2B is a production aircraft, now S2C. Google Aviat in Afton, Wyoming. The Eagle is experimental amateur-built. Kit form. A very nice acro unit, but not a production aircraft.
    Charlie Hilliard....RIP!!

    Informal portrait of 260714 Wing Commander Robert Henry Maxwell (Bobby) Gibbes, of Balgowlah, NSW, Commanding Officer of
    3 Squadron RAAF, standing while eating a meal at an airfield in Libya, 16 January 1943. S/L Gibbes had taken three days to walk back to safety
    after being shot down in the desert behind enemy lines. Note the discarded (but very useful) English Army greatcoat he found in the desert.

    "..................leave was given to many of the Squadron’s members who visited Tunis and other places of historical interest. Flight Lieutenant Tom Russell was able to "commandeer" an American sedan and, with a few mates, enjoyed a week's adventurous road-trip into Algeria (suffering a few inevitable breakdowns)."

    I am only guessing, but the picture was late fifties, the favourite O.H.V. in British stock car racing at that time was the Oldmobile Rocket
