    Great picture!
    I also remember the sound of my own car the first time that I saw it drive by. Very impressive.

    It seems that the rest of the pictures are lost! Can't we start this thread over again?

    :)

    You've seen the Dino, it's pretty small.

    The TR6 is maybe 3/4 that size. You bump elbows in the middle if you aren't careful.

    Also, that steaming straight six 2.5 litre, producing about 110 HP when stock is a treat, too. Talk about your hot cockpit (can I say cockpit here?)

    Although with the top down, on a nice spring day, it is pretty cool to tool around in.

    Not a lot of leg room either. I'm not quite 5'10" tall and I'm about as tall as you'd want to be and own this car. It's pretty funny to see my 6'5" brother in law driving it. He looks like he's in a go-cart.

    It's very exciting when you pull up next to a tractor trailer and realize you could drive under it, and that the tires are taller than your car. Staring at the hub of a giant truck wheel can be a little disconcerting.

    It causes one to pause briefly, then accelerate as quickly as possible away from the monster trucks.

    On a personal note, how appropriate that I would be having an exchange with you for my 2500th post!!! seems we talk pretty often here.

    congrats of 2500, that makes u an F1 Rookie.

    well we are two guys who are really into cars and it just so happens we live near each other and you have some awesome cars.

    you could pull a fast and the furious and drive under the truck to avoid cops.

    I change mine often, but this is what it is now arguably one of the most beautiful roads on earth. I drove this raod up and back to Monterey to win the silver in my class. Unfortunately the two cars that beat me only saw this view from their trailer. This was a wonderful day 6 hours and not one bug on the winshield, can a Ferrari driver ask for more?

    Do you guys physically take a picture of your screen, or is there a way to copy and paste the desktop image to transfer it to F-chat?

    control-print screen copies it.

    Then open whatever program you use to edit pictures, and paste.

    Viola!!

    Then resize to 640xwhatever, and away you go!

    My friend at Ford (composite engineer for the new GT40, lucky dude) drew this for me of my VW. As for F-car content...I'm still looking at my options. Love the look of the 308/328 but the Mondial is now sounding like a nice family car...
