Love that MINI!




Chris, for a happy, long relationship, you've got to be faithful to the one you're with, not to all of them!

Rob C,

Like the top one - inventive mood, but what is it? Seems to have the Blue Oval, might say Le Mans, but I've never seen one of those and the lights look Japanese.

?

Rob C

Thank you.  The top one is my baby.  A 1999 Ford Cobra Mustang.  They call it the "New Edge" style which is probably the most modern 'looking' Mustang to date.  After this style they went retro.

Thanks.  There is a large mini culture in Thailand.. wonderfully preserved and well loved.   I remember this one well.  It was monsoon season and it was raining hard and I conned my teenage son into getting out of the car and taking it for me.. Smiley

Nice pix, Chris; makes posting cellpix feel a bit silly, but I've got my PS computer back this afternnon, so I've stuck together two shots of a machine that sits in the town's marina as well as in the dirty backstreets... Seems apt, the latter, and the reason I also walk the backstreets is that they are all backstreets here when you leave the front! Unfortunately, many here chew gum and keep dogs that run free; makes for people walking with their eyes down - only tourists gaze at the sea that appears at the end of everywhere.

Our friends with whom we used to go on cruises owned a penthoue on Palma's Paseo Maritimo, which overlooks the marinas and yacht clubs etc. Their front aspect was super de luxe, and the rear of the building backed onto a slum. That's Mallorca!

Curiously appropriate, Rob, that it is the rear-end that spots the epithet "My Bit Of Rough"!!

Nothing, it seems, is left to chance in these matters!

That's a beautiful shot, Chris; I never had paintwork look like that on any car in my entire life so far... does that give me hope of better things to come? Certainly lends a good name to black/white.

Lovely shot Chris! Your picture of the VW brings back memories, I had three of the things in various guises at one time. One was a '69 that had a transplanted 2.1L Carravelle ( VW's bus) engine with twin downdraught Webers and dropped and tuned suspension with front discs. Scared the hell out of the local Golf GTI hotshots for quite some time.

Nice lines, Justan!   And Steve, that first one's pretty sweet too!  Seeing the girl in the tiger cage seems somewhat ironic, but probably safer overall.  Also I can't believe I missed those Corvette images...

Here are a few more:

Behind Bars


1953 GMC


Firebird


'Dappled'


1930 Model A


End of the Road

What is it with people and cars and cliffs, anyway?

Mike.

Much the same as with guns and road sˇgns, I guess... the tall poppy from opposite directions.

Did it look anything like this?

The blue bug reminds me of a story out of the sixties. Some students who owned bugs noticed that a professor owned one too. One of them knocked on the professor's door and asked him if he'd like to join the Volkswagen Bug club. The professor gave the kid a funny look and said, "And do you have a toothbrush club too?"
