It's sounding more and more like you need to move to Georgia.

Rodney Dickman might be able to help with Meras.

Here is is...

When a new rocket is tested, it usually carries a "payload simulator", which means just some concrete blocks or something else to add weight. Elon Musk used one of his cars for the payload simulator, and added several cameras attached to both the car and the 2nd stage (to which the car is still attached. And, of course, a radio transmitter to send pictures and video back to earth. Here's a sample...

Here's the last picture sent. The "starman" is pretty far from Earh here...

If you could get Elon Musk to put one on top of one of his rockets, you could send it to Mars. ;)

A sad day in Fiero land. I have what may be the last custom Fiero sails Paul made -- the ones that say "XD4" on my yellow car. He also made the "Fiero XD4" decal on the back, and the decals on my wheel centers.

General Discussion / Falcon Heavy launches, but the roadster will miss Mars
« on: February 06, 2018, 11:24:43 PM »
By now you probably know about the test flight of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket. The first stage of this rocket is 3 Falcon 9 rockets strapped  together, making it the currently most powerful rocket in the world. And you probably know about the cargo -- Elon Musk's red Tesla Roadster, with a dummy in a space suit in the driver's seat.
The plan was to send the car to Mar's orbit, but Elon revealed in a late tweet that it's actually going past Mars to the Asteroid Belt.
Here a couple of pictures... First, the launch...

This picture will give you an idea of the size of the beast. The press was allowed to get close up before the rocket was fueled for launch.

I'm trying to figure out what the fluid is.
Motor oil is brown, (fresh) auto trans fluid is red, brake fluid smells, and coolant tastes bitter-sweet. (Yes, I know it's poisonous. Spit it out after tasting.)

If it's for a Fiero, get your slave from Rodney Dickman. You'll be glad you did.

They actually used my red Fiero (which my brother Lloyd has now) for some of the interior shots. They removed the windshield and put in a new one when they were done. They gave me a convertible hardtop Beemer to drive while they had my car.
They had two red Formulas that they used for the exterior shots, and I heard that the production crew trashed them.
