    1. Nope, not without doing what I advise you to do, go to the source I linked to, and zoom in, use snipping tool, then windows and Fax viewer to clip and save, then display and enlarge the image, giving it a 180 turn to be read upright.

    2. The back of the car says "On with the Show", then a line I can't read, and "Municipal Airport". I can't read what is on the side of the car.
