      Hello again, Don,

      Let's see... the left photo is of the truck... the right photo is of
      an old time watchman's tower and Model T. Now I get it!
      I made both photos into active links a few minutes ago.
      The Semi Tractor has another new link to some more photos
      so that each page will load faster.

      49K tractors and trailers?! I sure hope so. I could do it but
      I will need to hear from a lot more folks before that happens.

      Most trucking companies had 50 to 100 tractors and about 150
      to 200 trailers to be of any significance, so I guess that's your
      goal. I'm still trying to figure out what your references to 15K to 25K
      "records" is all about.

      Just scratching my head and thankful for your humor!
