  • Yep that's the one (there can't be many, huh). What a machine, I had to just stand and stare a while. Close up, it has an interesting mix of highly-polished perfectly-straight sheet metal and old beat-to-crap skin, also highly polished...evidence of many years of hard use and alternately, careful restoration. Basically a national treasure.

    • More airplane stuff then I'll quit (grin). My nephew who was a studious toe-the-line type unlike me is these days a battalion commander for Cal Fire, directing air drop and ground action from an OV-10 Bronco. He just posted this video that's my kind of stuff, no blah-blah-blah and short (7 minutes). His is the main voice flying, and the female voice is a pilot not a dispatcher.

      • Being a Retired Rural Volunteer Fire Fighter......
        We also were the FIRST OUT Units for Wildland Fires...
        This video is only 7 minutes long.....
        The REALITY of this Fire, is from "Tones" to end of video,
        This Fire Consumed 30 acres, and was just coming under Control !!!
        Wildland Fires spread in EVERY DIRECTION, 360 !
        AND More down wind !! On average, they can double in size every 60 seconds !!!

        Don't be a "Flatlander", .....start a burn pile,.....
        And Burn The Neighborhood Down !!

ID:	1326930 This was taken 2 winters ago about 50 feet into the woods behind the house. Still haven't seen the bear that has destroyed a few birdfeeders of the neighbors, which is okay by me.

                    • Looks like a South American Opel of some sort to me. No expert but that's the general vibe I get.

                        I was thinking Opel vibe too. The car in Patrick's photo sure has the right lines but it has a marker light and a badge on the left rear fender and the one with the gas can appears to not have those and the one with the gas can has some extra trim around the around the taillights. Maybe it's a Mopel...

                                I took that photo this morning before I started on the right side (still waiting on gaskets to seal up the left side). I took the radiator surge tank loose and hung it up on string and THEN (don't ask me why) I took the cap off of the surge tank and I heard all that antifreeze running down into the engine and OUT the open elbow above the intake manifold and Into the valve train. It went straight down the timing chain into the block, about a quart I guess. I couldn't have poured it into there more perfectly on purpose, it didn't even spill a drop on the floor.
