Love Those Cars!
« on: May 02, 2017, 10:13:11 AM »

Don't know what happened to the old thread, but decided to start a new one. On my way to work, this morning, "Martin's Moonshiner":

P.S. In case it isn't clear, the purpose of this post is to start a thread (or revive the old one) to post images of cool cars, classic or new. Everyone's contribution is welcome.

Is the moonshine, for human consumption packaged in jars? Is the "moonshine" a suitable substitute for gasoline?

In its infinite wisdom, Bob, our government has concluded that moonshine is good stuff in our gasoline tanks. When you put ten gallons of gas in your car you're putting in about one gallon of moonshine. Reduces your gas mileage and has a not-so-great effect on your engine, but it's supposed to cut down on emissions, which, in turn, are supposedly bringing on "global warming." When the globe didn't warm satisfactorily as projected by computer models our government changed the name of the adverse effect being controlled by moonshine to "climate change." Nowadays moonshine is keeping the climate from changing.

Sure it is. . .

A pristinely restored version. Considering the color and shape of this car, clearly i would like to put this in front of that "cloudfactory" building...

Love this one... an era where F1 cars really were quite beautiful, if only in my mind :)

Maybe we can get a thread featuring people sitting in cafe windows reading newspapers?  That would be exciting!

No, I agree.  They can be stunningly beautiful. 

Here's something more modern...

Oh that's a very nice photo!

Someone gave up on starting this one when they realized they didn't have the right end...

Thanks! That's a good one too.
With that rope it makes me wonder if it was being towed and then they realized they lost half of it somewhere along the way.  ;D
