Hey SoldonHD ~ Nice Vet! I've got sitting down in our garage a '64GTO, Tri-Power, 389, 4-speed, with the wooden steering wheel. 100% original! So if we're not on the Harley's, we're in the GTO.
My other hobbies. . . .I sew and embroider.
The '64 & '65 GTO's are my favorite Pontiac muscle cars.Yours with the tri-power carbs is a rare one indeed!
The picture of my '63 is so small I figured everyone thought it was a radio controlled car!! I accidentally wiped out all of my pictures except this one.I had used this picture as my avatar on another forum and I stashed it in a folder.
Bikerman...I can drink with the boys on this one... I get to pay my ex!! Long story... but women's lib bent me over on this one.... lol
Since the love of my life passed away last Sept. 11, my hobbies seem to have become mowing, weed-eating & house maintenance!! He gets a 'blessing' every now and then for being gone!!!
But I do love to collect depression era glass - mostly green boopie (bubble), primitives, old chalk pieces - mostly dog stuff (am owned by a French Bulldog), old advertising stuff, Whiting-Davis (it's a shiny stuff thing lol). Not going to admit that I liKe vaseline, too.... lol THE GLASS!!! THE GLASS!!!!
Used to be into archery... won all of our 3 state tournaments 2 years in a row, back to back (in my other life), love to hunt and fish... mostly approach the woods now with a camera... things change..... and bikes... always bikes.

Hey Kevin! I've also done some stereo photography using slide film when I use to work at Eastman Kodak. That is how I got involved with their camera club. I have an old stereo Realist that I used.
Most folks use slide film for it. It just adds a certain richness and - well - depth, that just isn't there in prints. I used Realist format cameras for a few years, at least until Kodak stopped mounting them. Cheap commercial mounting was the only attraction of it to me. Without that advantage I VERY quickly shifted over to twin camera rigs of one sort or another until I finally built the new camera from a pair of old Argus C3s. A hacksaw, some epoxy a few bolts and you've got a full-frame interchangable lens stereo camera. Using that I get standard mounting commercially which I can easily preview and then switch over to 7-sprocket stereo slide mounts if I want to.
Got a few radio control race cars too, been racing them half my life, they have come a long way.
I knew I liked you for a reason Jerry.
This is my Hyperdrive Hyper10 with a 9 turn double Mister Twister motor, panasonic 6 cell batteries and a Tekin regen electronic speed control. It's belt drive, carbonfibre chassis with full suspension tuning.
