Nice car show pics!

Wow, a lot of engineering went into this rig, twin front mounted VW engines running together.


Don't wish too much too be me, David. one more month and I'm back in the fl panhandle at the height of hurricane season.

Cheers Richard

Can you identify these UFOs from 1960s TV shows?

Just Don’t Call Them UFOs
The U.S. military wants pilots to report strange sightings in the sky, but doesn’t want any of the stigma that comes with it.
https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2019/04/us-military-wants-pilots-report-ufos-despite-stigma/588232/

Quote:
Pilots are about to receive a new memo from management: If you encounter an unidentified flying object while on the job, please tell us.

The U.S. Navy is drafting new rules for reporting such sightings, according to a recent story from Politico. Apparently, enough incidents have occurred in “various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace” in recent years to prompt military officials to establish a formal system to collect and analyze the unexplained phenomena. Members of Congress and their staffs have even started asking about the claims, and Navy officials and pilots have responded with formal briefings.............................

“Nobody wants to be ‘the alien guy’ in the national-security bureaucracy,” Mellon wrote in a Post op-ed last year. “Nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue.”

^^^ I don't understand the 2 fans on top. Are they electric? Doesn't matter really cause they don't do much of anything.
