And this is the Ford Lotus that won Indianapolis in 1965, driven by ... James Clark... :)

Heh.  You know, I never thought of that. I always think of him as "Jim" Clark :)  That's funny though!

Actually I was wondering if you were using "james Clark" as a nom d'écran in hommage to Jim... but life is full of fun coincidences  ;D

No - in my case it's a blend of my first name and my wife's last name (which I use for my gallery page for a number of irrelevant reasons.)  That said, I've always been a HUGE Lotus fan and have been lucky enough to own several - currently debating the merits of an Evora 410, and if I can afford one with a home remodel coming up :)

Here's another car shot though - English again - a new Morgan trike.

I love that car, and hope with all my heart that innovative (or retro-innovative?) contraptions like that remain possible in the future, despite the technocratic economic reality of today.

And sometimes, cars end up like this (my daughter demonstrating her teenage driving skills - she is, miraculously, ok - a testament how well today cars are designed to withstand a crash - only the impacted part collapses, leaving the rest almost intact):

Wow, sooo lucky then. We frequently have such an image in the news where a car simply folded around a roadside tree. The result obviously isn't as fortunate for the occupants, and they are virtually always young drivers ( < 24 yrs).

Admittedly it is not a car, but then cars aren't landscape either, so it might as well fit here. Was actually being used, well restored without bling, just cleaning and restoring to original.

I pass this every now and then, so tonight was a reasonable time to take a quick shot with the complementary orange in the sky.

It looks like the "Little car that could."

My current drive. Bought and built it into this for obvious reasons. Simply awful in the city, some places it simply won’t fit. Been stolen once, they are very popular in the various wars being waged in Africa and they tend to gravitate north once stolen. I was pleased to recover it. I have been hit from the back twice on the freeway. The first time I had to engage 4X4 to get it off the VW that had lodged under it because the back tires were up in the air. Scratched my bumper, a bit annoying but the VW was totaled.

Pardon my ignorance, but what are those reasons? And what is that black thingy next to the windshield?

I go places that can be very hard on vehicles and very remote should it go wrong. This thing has a tent on the roof, metal canopy for strength and security, multiple fuel tanks, water tank, built in refrigerator, winch,shower, diff lockers and so on. The black thing is a snorkel, bot for dealing with water as most people think but to feed cleaner cooler air to the engine. Lots of interesting places to visit if you have one of these
