    Sara: washing the car on concrete, the soapy run off, or sitting in the car and heavy rain coming down on the windshield, no wipers going, or in the carwash



    School Bus was right for my entry, all you smart guessers

    mmj, is it a busted phone?

    Thom, I have no idea and would not even try to guess, but since you love little model planes, it might have something to do with that.

    I have another interesting snippet out of a big photo, guess

    You are brave to be driving ON the bridge while it is undergoing repairs!

    CORRECT. That is the detail of the servos on my J-3 Piper Cub. Longneck was the first to guess correctly.

    That bridge was flawed from day one, they used faulty concrete when they poured the pylons, so cracks appeared instantly. Now there is just a lot of repair to keep the steel cables from rusting, they are being scraped and painted in this picture. No danger driving over it though, unless a tanker or other huge ship will hit it like it did the old one, a day I shall never forget.

    Thom, before I can see the attachment, I would venture to say that this might be a Dichroic Glass piece

    So, I have another one as well. This is a load of fun. Great idea Thom

    I'll accept that answer - it is indeed a CRT. It's an old broken television.

    You can see the smashed glass tube at the front lined with rows of red, green and blue phosphors and a bit of the shadow mask behind it.

    Here's a shot of the whole TV
