      Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

      I reckon it was probably a very nice experience. I hope that I eventually get the opportunity to visit several museums in Germany.

      Pebble Beach 1951

      It catches the moment when Bill Pollack, in Tom Carstens' black #14 Allard, passes Phil Hill in the ex-Tommy Lee Alfa Romeo 8C2900B. Pollack won the event, while Hill faded to finish fourth.




      n this photo by Don Meacham; Bill, in Tom Carstens' HWM-Chevrolet "Stovebolt" leads out of Turn 4 at the 7th Pebble Beach races, April 22, 1956. Following are Ernie McAfee in Bill Doheny's Ferrari 121LM, Phil Hill in John von Neumann's Ferrari 860 Monza, Carroll Shelby in Dick Hall's Ferrari 750 Monza, Pete Woods in his D-Type Jaguar, and Bob "Gus" Wittke in his Austin Healey.

      There are more Colt 1911's in this thread than cars. I think everyone on pg3 has one. Except C-96 Mauser man. I love C-96 Mausers.

      You can pretty much always tell a Packard by its distinctive radiator shell. We had one of their trucks at a show a couple of years ago that had a 600:1 differential for pulling stumps.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      Well of course you are right.

      I guess the pic sort of scrambled my brain, she did have that effect on a few people, including the Kennedy's







      18 Feb 1954, South Korea --- 2/18/1954- Korea: The power of a woman. Over 10,000 GI's turn out to hear and see Marilyn Monroe as the bosomy blonde makes an appearance in Korea, February 16th. Not since President Eisenhower made his pre-inaugural visit has there been such a turnout for a celebrity. The serviceman traveled from all points of the Korea peninsula to get a look at the movie queen.
      1956, London, England, UK --- Creating a minor riot on opening night of her husband's play in London, actress Marilyn Monroe was the center of attention among the audience viewing Marilyn, in a revealing dress, turns to look back, as she sits with playwright Arthur Miller, (left), and Sir Laurence Olivier, (right), with whom she is currently making a movie.

      Well done, TCL.
