I've seen a few versions of Tow-Mater and I like them. He was my favorite character in the movie. I've even seen a couple done in scale. Pretty cool.

Mt. Vernon, Washington - every time I drive by this place there is something cool parked out front...

This happens to be the owner's car and it's not a Radiator shop these days but it is an Upholstery shop with a constant flow of high end projects!

O.K., I'll play. This first shot was driving across interstate 80 from Salt Lake to Reno, just after the GSL contest in 2005. The shot is looking out across the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Posted Image

Staying with the GSL trend. This shot is of Mt. Hood, just outside Portland , OR that I took from the window of the plane as I was flying back home after the contest in 2007.

A1A in Daytona Beach last September.

Driving through a tree in Northern California.

And, just in case anyone didn't realize just how big the trunk of a California Redwood tree could be.

Here's a few more.

Winter in Oregon

Posted Image

Driving through Crater Lake in Southern Oregon. This is in mid June, believe it or not.

Posted Image

One very scary bridge that stretches from Oregon to Washington right at the channel to the Pacific Ocean in Astoria Oregon.

Posted Image

This fine looking F-100 was sitting outside the Harrah's casino in Cherokee NC.
Posted Image


And here is more examples of my driving/photography skills. My wife hates it when I do this. This is along I-70 in Utah going through Devils Canyon.
Posted Image


And then on the same trip on I-70 in Kansas we came across this OCC chopper for the U.S. Army.

That's a load of snow. When I was 5 we lived in Klamath Falls (around1953). I am sure we saw snow for 9 months...at least it seemed like it. Going into Crater Lake all I could see was snow far above our car. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr. All I remember of cars was they were old (40's and early 50's) and they were always snow-mud splattered. We had a '50 Chrysler Windsor sedan at the time.
