I'd like to save some of them to my hard (he he, he said hard) drive, but when I right click it wants to save as an .html.  That won't do.

Any sugestions?  :getmecoat:

Interesting Ski, I just tried and it defaulted to JPEG (I tried from the large picture slide show thingy). Is HTML the only option you see when saving as?

I'm using FireFox, and it actually wants to save the image as image.php.  Sorry about the confusion.  Although if you have a link to flickr or something to get the full rez I'd be interested!\\ :shy:  :P

Flickr galleries for your SJ profiles are on deck guys.  :)  Just not quite ready to spend the fifteen bucks for the plugin. 

Once the forum is converted, you'll be able to access anyone's gallery by clicking their name in the forum. 

If you are using Firefox you can right click the image, select "View Image" and then save it from there.

Great pics Guy. I cant wait for the Zippo. You plan on going? We'll be camping all weekend.

 This car runs a motor I built.  Possibly also the Shelby Coupe replica. I know I've done motors for a few of their cars.

Oops I messed up, I posted there.  I didn't catch that it wasn't your photo.

That is freaking awesome!  :gtg:

"The cars that run because of Mr. Peabody'

That should be a story on it's own!  :o

Ray! Ray Snooze? Ray?  :getmecoat:

Seriously Sherm, tell us how one and the other came about please, somewhere.
I'm sure all SJ children will hang onto your lips. Well not the Portly boys of course, they get a nice comfy chair.
 :yes:

Mr. Peabody's Big Block Blog?  :hmm:

(dunno WHAT the Heck that mosquito gave me in the middle of night but....  lol )

I'm with Caspar.  It would be really cool if you could blog about, or at least share some stories behind these Engines, and cars.  :gtg:

Ok. I work at an automotive machine shop that specializes in hi performance engines. I do the test fitting + final assembly.  We have equipment ranging from a dyno to a 5 axis cnc machine for head porting.
 One of our biggest customers is Cobra Automotive in Wallingford Ct. www.cobraautomotive.com (we laugh every day about the comments on there about them doing engines and "the boss spends so much time in the dyno room we call it his 2nd home." )They do alot of top-end Ford work. Restoration of Cobras + Gt40's-+ Mustangs. They also do alot of race prep + track support.
 We probably build about 10 289's a year along with plenty of freshen ups for them--they sell them all over the world. Last year we did a whole bunch of FIA legal motors that got shipped to customers in Europe. (One customer is the shop that preps the GT40 + the red Falcon in GTL.)
 So what I end seeing is an engine block on an engine stand + a pile of boxes-then many hours of putting it together and measuring -take it apart + machine again and again -until its finally assembled with exacting clearances. Then it goes back to Cobra--they put on a show worthy paint job + attach all the shiney stuff (as we call it, their valve cover installation area  :rotfl: ) then it comes back to us to be dynoed. Then I sweat it out that I did EVERYTHING exactly right while it gets flogged on the dyno. Once finished it goes back to them-and they take credit for it and off to the customer-or installed at their shop. I dont see the cars-I just do the engines. Only time of the year i see any of them is at Watkins Glen in Sept.

Would be nice to read about your adventures regularly for the petrol/gearheads here.
But this is a cool story too! Thanks.
