Easy Peasy Kach. Woulda thought you would know how.

Right click on the image, select 'View Image Info', selected image would be highlighted, right click on the highlighted image info and select copy. Then back to Pelican Parts, select the image icon and paste the image info.

You do realize the "P 40" is actually a French pre WW II racing aircraft, a Caudron C 460?

Some may think that cornering flat is overrated.

Ride the Machine: Vintage 1980: the GM Lean Machine,

Quote:
"The GM Lean Machine was developed by Frank Winchell of General Motors (USA) in the early 1980's as a concept car. The single seater vehicle is a "lean" machine in the true sense of the word as it leans into corners like a motorcycle whilst keeping the stability of a normal car. The original model was powered by a 15 hp 2-cylinder engine that produced a maximum speed of 80 mph with a fuel economy of 80 mpg at 40 mph. Shortly afterwards a second model was produced that was powered by a larger 38 hp engine. With a total body weight of 159kg this gave the vehicle outstanding performance and the Lean Machine was able to reach 60 mph in just 6.8 seconds with a fuel economy of over 200 mpg."

I just assumed he was joking.

He did post an RC model of a FW-190 after all.

Never underestimate the power of john70t stupidity.



Thanks for posting that Tracer, Kach. That is almost my dream car except mine would have more easy egress and a tow point
