The second one sure brought back memories. The ZIPPER was my favorite ride back when. I saw one a couple of years ago. I think the shrank them since I rode Nice shots Dave

Great shots of what would be for me "lunch losing" modes of transport.

I use to love the zipper as well Patrick - was on one once that broke down and a cable (live electical cable) came flying by our all steel car - just one of those it was not our turn moments.

haah thanks kerrorwdown I still like the thrill but like Patrick says most of them seem smaller now or my back / neck can't take the jarring anymore.

more cool shots, gosh I wish I could ride those again. As life shortens a person becomes more cautious, that doesn't make any sense does it. Thanks for the thread Dave, enjoyed the rides.

Great fairground photos, Dave. I like the effect of the lights against the dusk. I remember riding the fairground attractions; I love the carny feel of a fair, but I'm too old for the rides now.
