This thread is open to everyone to contribute to and is intended for people to view quality pictures of mechanical transportation machines and be able to be viewed by anyone of any age at any location. If your 8 year old kid can’t view it in his classroom at school, it shouldn’t be posted here.

2. Planes (commercial, private, military)
3. Trains
4. Trucks including construction equipment (cranes, bulldozers etc)
5. Boats and ships
6. Military vehicles
7. Motorcycles and Bicycles
8. Anything built my NASA
9. Engines or parts of any of the above items
10. Anything mechanical that moves under its own power, wind power or gravity.

Pictures of the following are not welcome:
1. Sunsets, landscapes, seascapes
2. Pets or animals or anything with a pulse.
3. Artwork
4. Human bodies parts of any kind
5. Buildings or houses

Not a quality photo, but a rare one......................................

SAAB Hovercraft

Quote:
In 1963, yes, Saab also built a hovercraft known as the “Saab 401″. Much like the Aircraft industry being ordered by the Swedish Air Force, the development of the hovercraft was ordered by the Swedish Navy.

I've taken a break from P-cars for about 2 years now...I'm itchy as always to get back in the game, but that will have to wait at least another 2 years or so...for now this is my chariot...

Pinzgauer!

I love my Samurai, but if it ever gets struck by lightning, I'll replace it with a pinz 710!

In a couple years, we'll be able to import the diesels... a bit homely (even for a pinz) but it's got a Volvo (read:vw) 2.4 turbodiesel
