What Andrew suggested, "try doing a View > Source"
is how I can get the location of photos on flickr - by searching for ".jpg"

to screen-capture (good for youtube)
have the video paused on the monitor, hit the [PrintScreen] key which puts it in the clipboard memory,
then open a graphics program and [Paste as New Image],
crop if necessary, save to your hard drive,
then re-host on Photobucket, and use that URL with "img" tags:
Ahh that's how you did it... I am at work and we have IE8 no FireFox here sadly.

From what I can also remember, it looked like a Mark IV grill instead of the Mercedes design but I could be wrong. (this is kinda like an early proposal for the Versailles??) My brother took the set of Automobile Encyclopedias when he was married in the 1980's so I don't know if he still has them. I'll have to ask.
I don't think it was an early proposal because it is a bit smaller than a Versailles. I think it was intended to be a Mercedes-Benz fighter.

Re: 1973 Lincoln Mark I Concept Car

WAaaaaaaaaaaaaah I just lost an involved post - trying to re-create:

^ well if that concept wasn't a direct precursor to the Versailles
it shows that their thinking along those lines had already started
(an old Mercury textfile lists the Monarch as debuting as a '75)
((an even OLDer file, prolley on an HD in storage, had most models and basic dimensions going waaaay back))

I lived thru those bleak days...I guess...seem to have blocked them out mostly now
...like when someone says they remember the 60's, they're lying. Most/many of us from back then now just draw a blank...PROVES we were there
