    Trivia Time Trivia Time!

    OK fellow history buffs ... what's the origin of what's shown in the photos - and ... where is it now?

    I know. I cheated, but I know. Back in the day it was pulled by an IH. My first guess was an old Flash Gordon rocket.

    I had to go back and find them, but I'd run across a couple photos by coincidence a couple weeks ago.

    Man, and I was wikipedia-ing x-planes. It has a bit of the X-1 in its design.

    A bread truck... Neat story, thanks for sharing!

    At first, I thought it was the X-1 as well. But the more I stared at it, the less it looked like a plane.
