    went with a buddy to test drive a couple cars
    heres a few vehicles we saw during the day
    not super skilled in NONsuper processed photos
    so cars were pretty difficult.

    and a super crop on something i tried to focus on while flying down the highway and it on the side road, just for hep cat, i thought shed like the car! there was some car show... somewhere... we kept seeing parking lots with 10 ish cars, but not ONE spot where they all seemed to be going... it was confusing. i said "our hep is weak, so we cant track them properly" my buddy didnt get the humor...

    I'll take that cool car in photo #2, the kick-ass vintage Bronco and the turbo charged Subaru beast (I miss my old WRX)

    the fairlane was at the ford dealer
    buddy test drove an ST Focus while there

    i LOVE the old bronco!!!!!!
    the wrx was nice, but i like the inside of the focus st better, it was... neater? lol it was sleek and techy feeling
    the wrx was pretty bare bones feeling in comparison
    tho i still want a crosstrek v, lol

    i really enjoyed the neck-snapping acceleration of the Subie. I would just drive around the city looking for onramps to freeways. :evilsmile:

    He's had a 700 something hp mustang. I've yet to feel stuck to my seat more in anything other than a roller coaster
    The Subaru had way more low end feel than the focus st he mentioned tho

    I finally figured out the thread title......a little slow.

    I'm looking at that Fairlane again. It's so beautiful. I can picture it in a parade, but it's hard for me to imagine that people used to drive these beautiful cars to work and the grocery store. I don't think the owners knew how lucky they were. The cars today are clearly lacking in comparison.

    Someone loves that bicycle. It's had some good work done to it. Dynamo front hub, awesome mini front rack mounted on the brake bolts (I have something very similar on an old 70's peugeot), well-worn brooks saddle, it's been repainted (an ugly color but still, someone thought enough of it to paint it)... That's a nice old workhorse.
     
  10. Great collection of rides.

    I'd be satisfied with either, but as long as I'm dreaming, I'll also take both.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Not to mention some kind of saddlebag, fenders, barcons, the big old Riv-like stem - they don't sell em like that so there's a lot of home brew stuff combined into a working whole. I used to spend as much time thinking about bikes and building up old frames in various ways as I spend on cameras now.

    I sometimes feel like using my old film Minoltas is like bike building. With lenses going for $25-$80 all day long, you sorta never stop tinkering. That plus filters, and then rubber hoods, and which bag to use... Nice thing about the X100 is that lenses are not an option. Sucker is bolted down on there.

    the x100 is a great second camera
    i had it with me while i was shooting my rx1! lol
    yes two 35mm cams!
    the fuji set up for zone focus, and the rx1 for shallow dof buttery creaminess!
