Apparently, Klattu has not figured out how to load pix on this Forum. Klattu, if you need help, please go to the Welcoming New Members Forum where you will see where I posted a welcome to you when you became a member. Or look at any welcoming post. The information on how to post pix to this Forum is in every welcoming post... We would love to see what you have.

You have to say the magic words to Gort "Klaatu barada nikto"

Oh wait - that was Klaatu not Klattu.

(hint - it was 1951......)

But I'd like to see the Tbird too!

I've looked and looked... is the only way to post photos by paying $20 a year?
I see lots of photos, but no way to add a photo.

We drove past that house during a Sunday drive, stopped and asked if we could take photos.
Was funny to see a house that matched our car.

And they probably said "Those crazy people painted their car to match our house"

Have to admit after owning Little Birds since 76, I am really liking these paint schemes and the next generation Birds. I Googled Larry Watson and read about him - very tallented person. I'm thinking I need more garage space!!!

Wow,:eek: scarey isn't the word. From a distance it would look like the Purple People Eater floating off the ground coming to gobble you. It would be great for Halloween.:D

Neat-O. That green should look great with the paint scheme.

Funny thing - I've been adding a white led strip (white car) in the power dome (aka - hood scoop) on my car. Going to add a switch to the secondaries and when they open the light comes on.

Geez - thinking about it though - they will be on a lot - might as well wire them on all the time - :D

Yes... we did use it on Halloween.
Over in a dark corner of the yard.
