If Ben Franklin had gotten his way, this would have been the wattled, beady-eyed, bumpy-skinned symbol of American patriotism, not the bald eagle, which ole' Ben considered cowardly carrion eaters.

Well speaking of "wild turkeys",

I'm not convinced the Bin Laden tag was legit since I'm not certain the original image was actually Bin Laden himself, but it must be FATE that I take this tag. (Plus I played one of the Fates - John and Wendy Fate - in a production of Woody Allen's "Oh God.") 8)

Ok this 1971 movie (< hint) featured this lovely rider and 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T.



you'll need the hint and the name of the movie to find the tag.

I remember seeing this movie when it came out, and later telling my mother "Sure, go ahead and take my younger brother to see it." I had completely forgetton about this part of the movie.

It was fine for my brother to see...the problem was my mother, who we all conspired to "protect" from the actuality of the culture around her in order to have a quiet life.

You boys enjoy...

Well OK...if nobody else remembers this one I'll post it.

The Vanishing Point: Kowalski (Barry Newman) speeds across the Western U.S. in a white 1970 Dodge Challenger that he's trying to deliver from Denver to San Francisco in less than a day. While he's driving, his mind occasionally flashes back to an earlier time... when he was a race car driver. As the film goes on, we learn a bit more about his history, and we encounter a few other characters that he meets on the road, as police in four states try to capture him and disc jockey "Super Soul" (Cleavon Little) spins the soundtrack, feeds him coded advice on what the cops are doing, and elevates the driver to the level of a folk hero.

I've been playing around with Photoshop since about 1998 or so. My first big "project" was switching the heads of my brother and his wife in one of their wedding photos. Ahhh, memories.

Back in the day, he was the man.

He though of himself as a mechanic first, but he is the Godfather of a lost art brought back by custom cars and motorcycles in the '50s.

And though he hated money, his nickname is now a multinational clothing company.


But to get this tag you're going to need his real name too.

(and while I don't normal go more then two pages, you'll need to go a couple more)

I'm certain I know who this is but I'll be damned if I can find this image...searching on his real name, his working name, combinations thereof, etc. Is there some additional trick to finding this specific image?

And a gorgeous image it is!

OK, I give up! I found the image, finally, on somebody's MySpace site, but it was a cropped version of the one you used. Close enough, I hope, as I'll be staying up late to finish the project on which I should have been working.

Kenny Howard - a.k.a Von Dutch - who reintroduced pinstriping and caught the wave of the hot rod / motorcycle culture in Southern California.

Interestingly it seems a number of iconic figures from that era are having their names slapped on clothing lines either with or without their permission. In Kenny's case his daughters sold the use of his "Von Dutch" trademark after he died in '92.

Son of a commercial artist, he came by his talents naturally. In fact in looking for this image and reading more about him, I discovered that his father created the Western Exterminator logo...a commercial icon I remember fondly from childhood and one that I can still drive by, in 3D form, on Highway 101.

This one was fun!
