''Automobiles'' (or cars ) is a suggestion made by spanishliz.

Well this is one we had a few years ago, when my husband managed a pub/restaurant called "Mad Dogs" It was fun to drive around in.

Neat car, ren. I have so many photos of cars, it's going to take a while to choose one.

A Rolls Royce Silver Spirit - beautiful car, but where do you park it when you go out!

These are in a steam museum we have in Jersey, it has all manner of items other than the engines. I posted the Model T Ford a while back so here are some other cars, not quite as old, but not new.

When we went out on Saturday we parked next to this car, when I saw the owner come outside I asked if he'd allow me to take a photo.

Meet Ed and his 1957 hardtop convertible Skyliner.

Taken at the car show in Arizona a couple of weeks ago. It's not very often you get to see an Edsel.

Great to see how we all automatically gravitate to old cars rather than the blobs they build now. I particularly like those cars Sue, the first is a bit too small to identify but the next two were ones we owned in the 60s, a Renault Dauphine and 750 and then the Standard Pennant.

Here's the last old car I spotted, a Rover parked in Stroud Green.

I went shopping on the weekend, and bought this! It is a 2003 Holden Commodore Equipe, V6 automatic, and goes like the clappers.

The nearest one might be a Hillman Husky perhaps.

Here are a few of the cars that graced the main street downtown one Saturday last summer. I don't know the make or model of this shiny red number, but doesn't it look like something straight out of "Rebel Without a Cause"?

Er, George did you take that photo yourself? If you didn't then you are breaking the rules!
