If they are my own I have on photobucket they are simply big photos. But if I am copy and pasting the URL of a photo I find I look for big photos, 800x600 at least. If you google image the size is in the lower corner of the photos if you hover over them. At least on my computers here and work.

This one is 3072x2304



800x640



300x300

What TV show had the star driving a Sunbeam tiger for the first season or two then began driving an Opel GT?

Dinger may have got the answer but it wasn't done properly. The proper answer would have been, " Would you believe, Get Smart?"
Picky, picky, picky!

In 1946, the Hughes H-4 Hercules was moved from Culver City, Ca. to the Port of Long Beach. This was a 28 mile trek to haul the 75 ton fuselage, the wings were hauled separately. The trip took 2 days and was hauled by a single vehicle. What was the name of the vehicle that hauled the plane to it's destination? Why did they haul it to Long Beach? What was the nickname for this flying boat? What engine powered this truck andf how many H.P.?



This was a fun read, I might be able to find the entire article and post a link. Shouldn't be too hard, I gave away a lot of info.

All I know is it's the Spruce Goose, designed by Howard Hughes. I had the pleasure of going thru it up in Washington at a museum.

The truck pulling it, holy cow, haven't a clue.
