Anything to do with the mode of transportation that's replaced our use of the horse. Cars, car races, carburetors...

This is my Dad's 1968 SS427. Only just over 1800 made with the options this one has, and very few left.

A fine collection of E. type Jaguars at a 50th anniversary rally. Hopefully all the people all far enough away to comply with guidelines.

This is what they drive in Australia!
No, seriously, this is the most orange car I've ever seen, and I saw it in Australia.

This is my car after a freak duststorm a couple of years ago. The whole city turned a delightful shade of brown.

What a week! Our daughter turned 21 this week AND finished her Bachelor's Degree AND got a new car.

We actually didn't buy the car for a birthday or graduation gift. We bought it because her previous car was older than she was and it had got to the stage where it just wasn't worth repairing any more. So rather than pay out hundreds in the necessary repairs, new tyres, not to mention the registration being due next week, we decided it was definitely time to upgrade. We got a good deal on this 2007 Toyota Yaris. And what does she like best about it? It's blue! ( smilee)
