Since Kevin posted London from the air (splendid, Kev!) let me hop on his bandwagon and present another great city of the world: Chicago, on the shores of the great Illimichiwiana Sea (stereo-X pair). We flew into O'Hare on a Continited tube on Friday, while Chicagoans were enjoying a brief respite from their normal winter weather; by Sunday, when we left, it was back to low ceilings and freezing rain, with a nice 20 knot wind from the NW.

A lot has to happen before it is a go. I think we will know by June. If PRS comes off, I think they will race. Lot's of moving parts.

On a brighter note, every gearhead should know what hood scoop this is.

Hi guys,

Wishing you all the best for 2014, thank you for the entertainment you have provided throughout the year. This has to be my favourite spot on the web.

Cheers

James

Sorry no cityscapes but a few from Legends (yes, still working through shots from July!!!)

The start of the altered wheel base cars, a class which would become Funny Car.

Lots of cool images on this page! Nice one, Brian.

Here's some lights at our local Pedernales Electric branch; seems like they're using lots of their own product ;-)

Happy new year everyone!

I really like this photograph Tim. Your drag racing images are always a treat; as are your other racing and aviation photographs. Did you catch "The Belvelderer" as he was starting to launch or is the nose-high stance simply the way these bad boys looked with the altered wheel base? I should know this from my youth; however, I'm drawing a blank at the moment. The 1/2500s EXIF made me wonder if you froze him dropping the clutch?

He was pulling into the water box. Just have a burnout pic.

It is nose high as it sits for the weight transfer. You can see the leaf springs mounted on the straight axle.

You can see from this pic, the Willys were really set up nose high.

Quite a year closing salvo from you guys and gal. Just took Gracie for the last flight of 2013 and it was a treat for both of us. We were watched over by none other than my Buddy Bryan, fitting.

Seems JR has been craving a Quarter Pounder for a week or so, looks like we'll be dining in high fashion this evening at the local Golden Arches. Wishing you all the happiest of new years, whatever dreams didn't come true in '13, I hope a basket of them do in '14. Most of all, I wish you all health, peace, and a deep relationship with The One Who got this ball rolling.

Happy New Year!

Here's my last photographic goody of the year. (We're staying in tonight too many nuts on the roads already...lol)

Roadrunner in Johnson Country, TX. Captured today!

Thanks Jo and Laura

Here is a shot from today, likely one of the last of the year, just tInkeRing with a new toy for a few minutes.

Happy safe new year to everyone!

My last post of 2013. It's been a great year of aviation photography. Thanks to all the MA2A family for your help, camaraderie, and inspiration. Happy New Year my friends.

Happy New Year to the MA2A family from chilly (and soon to be snowy) Boston! I may not post much these days, but visits here are highlights of my day, and I thank everyone for that. May 2014 bring you and your families peace, happiness, and well-being.

Steve, that Chicago shot reminds me of a view I will never forget. Flying out of O'Hare in 1987 and climbing east over Lake Michigan. Very early morning, the lake shore and the lake itself covered in a brilliant layer of white fog, but the tops of the skyscrapers were poking up through. Looked like they were sitting on a bed of cotton. Unfortunately, no camera with me.

After serious & cautious consideration. . . .

Your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2014.

It was a very hard decision to make so.... try not to mess it up!

My Wishes for You in 2014
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.

May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills.

May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!

May your clothes smell of success like bacon frying and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.

May the saddest days of your future be no worse than the happiest days of your past.

May the problems you have forget your home address!

In simple words .. .. . .
May 2014 be the Best Year of Your Life!!!
