***AUGUST PHOTO CONTEST: THIRD PRELIMINARY THREAD*** [View all]

This is the third preliminary thread for the August photo contest. Please vote for the photo that best expresses the following theme, which was chosen by LakeArenal:

Trains, Planes and Automobiles…etc.

Any battery or fueled passenger vehicles. Parts or whole, inside or out, above or below, with or without passengers. (Though passengers might make things more fun)

Hot air balloons, motor bicycles, go carts, etc. (I have a friend who professionally races go carts). All run on fuel to name a few.


There are three threads. Please vote in each one and leave comments, as we love to read them!

These preliminary threads will run for 72 hours. They are posted in GD with the permission of the Administrators.

Here are the links to the other preliminary threads:
