I just posted 40+ Pix in the album section from our visit last week while at Carlisle. The pix' files are rather big so you may have to click on them to see them.

For some reason the photo thumbnails appear then disappear...?
Would you be able to send through another link on a different site?
Cheers,

Glenn and everyone:

When I get home next week I'll resize the pix and repost them. All of them are large files so you may not be able to see them....

For about a month or more any new pics posted in album show only when I browse full size. The thumbnails end as boxes with X

Wow, they need to seal that car up quick. But before they do they could put a short dummy in the front seat. One who appears about 60, with a crew cut.

The remaining metal sure has shown a lot of deterioration since we saw it exhumed in Tulsa 2 years ago. At that time, there was just a pencil diameter hole that was visible.

Strange that the tail panel seemed to suffer more than other areas, this area usually survives well on cars left in the elements above ground. ---John

SUPERB pics! Thanks for sharing them!
Love the "tide" marks on the speedo cluster where the water level has risen and fallen.
Interesting that the steering wheel has even blistered, looks like it was a black wheel painted desert gold? I thought all steering wheels were factory colored plastic?
Were there any engine bay photos taken during this session?
Wonder if they got the doors to open yet?
That stainless sure looks mint in some photos.

Does that one gauge say "WATER" on it?







Or is that water in it?

Glenn,

No, we didn't get a peek at the engine compartment this visit; they haven't gotten the doors open. The stainless is in good shape!

Sad, If they were going to put some preservative on the sheet metal it looks like they'd better do so soon as that metal looks like its dissolving away. Now there's a big hole in the top of the trunk lid and the panel below the tail lamps is basically Swiss cheese.

Yeah I saw a lot of deterioration, (albeit the car has been "cleaned up"), since my first visit to Ultra One about a year and a half ago. I don't think I'll be going back...
