You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick introduction to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (excluding Springfield)
: Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

Der Škoda 860 war das größere Schwestermodell des Škoda 6 R. Der exklusive PKW kam 1929 mit verschiedenen Aufbauten in Holz-Stahl-Mischkonstruktion heraus.

Sein wassergekühlter, seitengesteuerter Achtzylinder-Viertakt-Reihenmotor hatte einem Hubraum von 3880 cm³ und eine Leistung von 60 PS (44 kW). Der Motor hatte hängende Ventile, die Kurbelwelle war neunfach gelagert, die Kolben waren aus Leichtmetall. Er beschleunigte das 1265–1850 kg schwere Fahrzeug bis auf 110 km/h. Über das an den Motorblock angeflanschte Dreigang-Getriebe mit einer Mehrscheibenkupplung und einer Kardanwelle wurde die Antriebskraft an die Hinterräder weitergeleitet. Der Rahmen des Wagens bestand aus genieteten Stahl-U-Profilen. Die Achsen waren mit Blattfedern und Stoßdämpfern ausgerüstet. Auf das Fahrgestell mit 3,57 m Radstand konnten alle möglichen Aufbauten gesetzt werden. Insgesamt wurden bis 1933 nur knapp 100 Fahrzeuge hergestellt von denen nur drei überlebt haben. Dieses Modell wurde durch den Typ 850 abgelöst.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T – The Trio (In Good Business)

1968 Dodge Charger R/T - The Trio (In Good Company)

There was a 4 calendar year time period from 1986 through 1990 when these 3 cars saved every single other firm, tucked absent in a non-descript storage building around an industrial place in Yakima, WA.

This grainy, awful (and priceless) image tells the tale about how the Charger, a 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee, and a 1967 440 4-speed Plymouth GTX had been in storage with each other when I went again to college many miles absent.

Early in 1983 I persuaded my dad we required a family job that we could turn wrenches with each other on and potentially turn a profit at the conclude. I uncovered a 1967 Plymouth GTX in “rough” problem and immediately after 2 yrs of sweat, cash, and exertion, it turned out awesome.

Very unexpectedly, I uncovered an previous drag racer with a stable 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee (ran 11’s) in 1985 and with some luck persuaded him to sell it to us. An additional calendar year later with much more sweat, much more dollars and much more exertion, it also turned out awesome.

This remarkable Trio remained with each other, dusty and frozen in time, until early 1991 when each the Super Bee and GTX had been marketed.

I typically imagine of the heady times when I owned, at minimum partially, 4 traditional muscle mass cars, (my day by day driver was a 1969 G.T.O.) but some of my fondest recollections are of the times my dad and I expended with each other restoring the GTX and Super Bee.
