Car crazy

This past week end was the Napa classic and American muscle car show, a show I've seen three times now and enjoyed no end. American car culture has resulted in some amazing cars and the skill shown at the show by owners and renovators was outstanding. As I left for the show I photographed the above shown atrocity committed on a Rolls Royce by one of my neighbours. just who does that to a roller? from the ridiculous to the sublime indeed.

Some people play with houses.some people play with computers,some people play with trains (real or toy) and some people desecrate Rolls Royce cars by adding too much bling,oh dear never mind it's in a country that's a long long way from Cheshire so it's out of the way.

I spend my own money as i please and i have no comment on how others spend theirs...if they earn it.

..... or not, Thud?

anon...some things are beyond the pale but then being an American you would never understand.

As a guest in my country you might want to hold back on insulting the hosts. And yes even Americans can detect BS.

Thud said...

You are certainly not my host as I'm rather particular about the company I keep, now be a good boy and run along now and leave the grown ups alone.

As a modern Roller is just a transvestite BMW for the nouveau riche, it no longer matters what people do to them. If they'd done it to (say) a '64 Phantom V, then breaking off diplomatic relations might have ensued........

But I am more concerned about that leaf in the midddle of a pristine road. Sweepers gone on strike?

It's another version of those chrome scaffold bar 'cod pieces' you see on the front of a certain brand of SUV Thudders!

Only what the heck you call a thing like that on a car's bum I dunno...

Perhaps he gets a lot of punctures...?

Thud
I guess you are less particulate about who you visit when you deceide to enter my country as a guest?

You certainly got an attitude but I understand this is you just acting macho to cover up your catholic guilt.

There is really nothing wrong being a decorator and enjoying barge boards and pink cowboy hats, so grow up and stop acting.

anon....I'm flattered by your attention but you should know I'm not that type of chap. It seems you are fascinated by my two year olds hat, perhaps it reminds you of when you and your boyfriend play dress up. Please fell free to fuck off and stalk someone else as this is getting tedious.

Well you've been caught out Thud, it seems anon has upgraded you to a "decorator" when we all know your just a labourer, your own words and stop pretending your travelling around the USA when we know your only on a 3 week vacation and your renting a house in Boca Raton Fl all on your lonesome :-).

Gordan Bennett Thud you sure have attracted yourself a stalker here, close your curtains lock your doors you dont want him breaking in through the back door now. It could be worse mind, it could be from Berkeley.....or Obama
