    Should have called it BOMBOJOB! for what it did to the effort.

    Hey, I still need a new Sofia decal.. actually.. three?? The one I have which is on my '97 Silverado is almost unreadable, I'm going to be spending a lot of time from now until I'm unable (nothing coming that I know about other than normal I have to recognize that I'd better do it in this coming decade!!)

    Crap, I went and did attempted thread hijack!

    LOL.. losing my mind! Silverado is my 5,400 lb "toad" need one for it too, I mean, primarily need one for trucker also one for coach!! One just for spare..

    Again... MISS YOU@@

    Miss you guys!!

    Wow, I don't know how much of that information was included with the website package that I turned over to Rod Lewis when his media group took over the rarebear.com domain, certainly everything that I had on the server... I just can't remember how much unpublished stuff went with it.. I also don't know how much of it they now have available..

    But I can guarantee you that John Slack could bend your ear for days on end on this subject!

    Was that spinner off a DC-7? Looked pretty cool.

    I think the cowling is DC-7. I would be curious to know also if it is the spinner is off a DC-7.

    I'm pretty sure neither the cowl or spinner in that pic are from a DC-7.
