Well if you're going to post a pic of a past museum trip...

One of my all-time favorite aircraft. Took this pic (among many, many others) the last time I went to the USAF museum in Dayton. It's so big it's impossible to get the whole thing in one picture. Anyone wanna take a guess?

Ding ding ding!

Funny you post a Flight Sim pic of that... about 10 years ago I started doing a 3d rendering of it with the intent of turning it into a flight sim model since (at the time) there were none out there. I did the whole nine yards - made up a 2d and 3d cockpit, made up a sound scheme for it from some old VHS tapes... Gave up on it though, and it's a shame, even now I think I did a great job modeling it. Just couldn't figure out textures.

That's a good looking model, terminator, bet it took some time!
I'm trying to teach myself "Blender" now, so I can only imagine with the interior and all.

Yeah, it took a good chunk of time. I modeled that in gmax back in the summer of 2004, IIRC. The tutorials and online community were invaluable; the software does have a bit of a learning curve to it. Doing the cockpit and landing gear is what took the most time though. I've still got the source file for the model, maybe some day I'll finish it...

Also looking at this picture, I can't wait to lower my car.

6-7/8" diameter, Push in solid circle mount no tabs. They fit the 4 lug 10 hole and the 89-92 "14 slot" 15" aluminum wheel. I still have the SHO caps they are early style plain no SHO logo I think they will also fit the SC and Sport wheels.

OH, and I may be wrong, but I don't think those pyramids are in NOLA

Did your cruise to Mexico launch from NOLA?

I was just in NOLA in October/early November. I just missed you guys! lol

No it left from the Port of Milwaukee! Yea Port of NO, what fun place to party, we definitely want to go back someday. Carnival was ok, but I don't think we will cruise with them anymore. Overall is was fun. Just the 58mm lens that came with the camera, an 18-55mm. Thanks Ron!

Wonder if he turned that stang too sharp at one point with those wheels or they adjust the panel for clearance... the gap on the door/fender is terrible.

I see a lot of cars with ridiculous wheels around my area. I can't imagine not turning or how the ride feels on a good road, I'm right on the river with steep hills and brick paved streets.
