I heard that word before but Im just curious to know what it means?
I think its a cool word..

I also think that it may of been involved in a James Bond movie? (if so, then what is it in the movie?) Perhaps I may be wrong but I just got this gut feeling..

So anybody know??

While the answers given are correct, you may want to consider writing ghost. I'll bet that is the answer your instructor wants. On the other hand, you may get extra for the other answers. Forget the Kia though, that is Spectra. Go for 12!

Nice picture Hubris. Pity those weren't around 35 years ago. Might have been many less lives lost in SE Asia.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

My pleasure. I was a HUGE James Bond fan 30-35 years ago, I had all the books. Unfortunately, I cannot find them, but I think my memory is good on this.

Hey Ps26, how many Kia Spectras could you get for I AC-130H Spectre

Better yet, how many Spectras can you get INTO a Spectre? (and how many students into a Spectra?)

Cheers,
Pete

They were...AC-130A and AC-130H model gunships were used with much success in southeast Asia. Still in use today with the latest being the AC-130U. Possibly the most accurate and deadly aerial firing platform ever made.

a spectre is a ghost-like image. a form of astral projection. it is not a car.

yes, i caught the "A" - I do marvel how these topics go off on weird tangents. But I guess that's half the fun.

Delta-Flyer   30-35 years ago.. yikes!!

Indeed!! The first movie came out in the mid-sixties - Dr. No, followed by From Russia with Love and Goldfinger. I was in high school then. The Aston Martin was the talk of our class (not to mention 007's women).

Cheers,
Pete
