Over here I'm more likely to spot a unicorn sporting a Stetson Straw Boater.

But then, isn't exclusivity part of the "draw" for ownership?:)

Ha! Our illustrious Republican previous governor Rick "oops" Perry has called Austin "a blueberry in a bowl of tomato soup", blue being the color rather arbitrarily assigned to Democratic political leanings, and red the other party. Which I've never understood, as the colour red has historically been associated with the "liberal" viewpoint. Go figure. 

(note how I have, in the spirit of international relations, provided both spellings of the word for hue)

Fantastic looking car Tocus,   I have a question though,  The compomotives had a shorter top and bottom arm on the rear to make up for the deeper barrels of the rear  wheels, 

Just looking at your car your wheels seem to fill the arch much nicer IMO than some other esprits, I take it you left the arms standard and did not replace for the shorter ones.?

I only ask as i have gone the opposite way and need to see how much those old arms will effect offsets to the hub etc.

Enjoy the car she looks amazing :thumbup:

Why on Earth would someone put up such a fence there?

Is the phonebox a remed to call for help while being caught on the barbwire?

Kind regards,

Jacques.

ps: nice car ;)

Don't know exactly why, but you can bet someone did something stupid to cause them to put up that fence.  And they probably did it multiple times.

That looks like the Gare Loch, home to HMNB Clyde and often just referred to as Faslane the small town there - home to our nuclear subs - a beautiful part of the UK. The give away for me is what looks like the grey Royal Navy supply shipped that is docked.

Picture probably taken from near the village of Shandon looking up the Gare Loch. 

Given that I can understand the fence which is probably the outermost perimeter.

I may be wrong of course...

Well okay then. But that fence is probably not holding up to a wirecutter. So there must be several other installations ;)

Anyway, a pity to shaden the nice panoramic view ;)

Kind regards,

Jacques.

That's actually Loch Next-to-Ness, and the fence is there to keep Nessie's cousins from slithering onto land.

They were the highlight of the show for me. All beautifully restored. There's just something about the natural beauty of the S1. But why is the one in the middle a foot narrower than the others? Perhaps Lotus was running low on fibreglass that day!

Cheers guys it looks very shiny....in reality the paintwork is no where near as good in the flesh. Ive at least 3 shades of pink red with lacquer peeling all over the place. Amazing how photos can make it look much better!
