Random TRANSPORTATION pictures

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.

All photos posted should be of one of the following:
1. Cars (race, street, old, new)
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
6. Cartoons
7. Anything that doesn’t fit in the first 8 items listed above.
8. No girls on or standing next to cars/boats/planes/trains.

I’m not a moderator so I can’t force you to follow the guidelines but I can only ask you as a courtesy to others to follow the intent of the thread.

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

SAAB Hovercraft
http://www.saabhistory.com/category/401/

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.

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
