This past weekend they re-played the series "cars that made America".
They were showing John Delorean and on the wall in his office above his head was a cross-section of a Porsche 914. Didn't notice that before.

Took a ride on the Tail of the Dragon. Saw this at Deal's Gap:



The bike gave me a flashback from Easy Rider.

Also saw a real Cobra. I've seen many kits and this was the real deal! It had the usual paint chips in the front like any DD. I told the guy I was amazed that he would take it on the street. He just shrugged and said he bought it to drive. I snapped a few pics but the card crapped out on me and I lost those.

Neat, but the images I picked at random were watermarked to hell and back; I've seen fire hydrants that haven't been peed-on as much. They want $400 for the image I uploaded here.

Images and profiles of WW2 Romanian IAR 80 fighter.
IAR 80
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAR_80


Quote:
When it first flew, in 1939, it was comparable to contemporary designs being deployed by the airforces of the most advanced military powers................

On 10 June 1944, IAR 80s took part in a major air battle when the USAAF attacked Ploieşti with 36 P-38 Lightnings of the 82nd Fighter Group carrying one bomb each, escorted by 39 Lightnings of the 1st and 82 FGs.................

...........Hatch saw two IAR 81Cs hit the ground after taking fire from his guns, and his fellow pilots confirmed three more kills from his guns, making Hatch an ace in a day. However, the outnumbered 71st Fighter Squadron lost nine aircraft. ............

After the Soviet occupation of Romania, all remaining IAR 80s were replaced with Soviet designs and scrapped. No complete original examples are known to survive.
