I think the picture is legit Bob. I checked and that is a 1967 Chaparral. It just looks incongruous in those surroundings.

Re photoshop; yeah thats what people say although there are many other photo programs available. It's like the British when talking about vacum cleaners they call them Hoovers which is a separate make of vacum cleaner.

Comment by Bob Stuart on Saturday

Hi Gary: You are absolutely right. It looks like the picture of the Chaparral has been put in the picture afterwards.

You are an experienced photographer, if it were so, would it be called today 'photo shopped'?? 

Comment by Gary on Saturday

"The Chaparral looks out of time in the 1967 Targa Florio".

Hi Gary: This Jaguar is a very nice looking car. As usual I like the black wheels  as well as the red colour. Recently I saw on Avenue Road parked a very similar new red Jaguar and it was absolutely beautiful. I actually stopped and had a good look at the red Jaguar.

Bob yeah I'd love to go to New Zealand for a few weeks.

Seen the new Jaguar?

Comment by Bob Stuart on Wednesday

Hi Gary:

I just watched Pre-war cars at Goodwwood and Worlds Greatest Motorcycle Rides and thought they were great. The older cars had such hugh engines and New Zealand certainly looks and sounds like an excellent place to at least visit.

If you're up around 11:00pm EDT or later you can watch the sun come up here.

From Fox News:

This day marks the confluence of two long distance communication milestones, notes. On August 20, 1911 a dispatcher in the New York Times office sent the first telegram around the world via commercial service, which made the trip in 16 and a half minutes. The dots and dashes simply read: “This message sent around the world.” Exactly 66 years later, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration sent a different kind of message–a phonograph record containing information about Earth for extraterrestrial beings–shooting into space aboard the unmanned spacecraft Voyager II.  In 1990, After yielding a wealth of planetary information on its grand tour of the solar system, Voyager II headed into deep space. But it’s still sending data and is expected to do so until the year 2020
