I have a laptop that no longer has a HDD. I was hoping to find a small img to flash to a flash drive and boot from that would allow me to use it as a SSH terminal. Is there anything out there for this?

I'd imagine any reasonably new Linux image designed to run from a flash disk will suffice. I know that PLOP will do it (but there are better solutions). I've never bothered with them, but I'm pretty sure Pendrive Linux or Ubuntu Live if you want a GUI.
