My brother was trying to move the car (not a short distance mind you) with nothing but the starter motor. This caused all of the ground wires to turn into toaster coils igniting all the fuel that had leaked (it was french ya know) onto them. Great show.

Yup and it wasn't THIS brother :D It was another.

Also the natural state of a french car is on fire, either self induced or by a youth. :mrgreen:

Do I see Ferrari badges on it?

Yes, they were a common if unfortunate addition to the Mera. However, it does look well done and being a factory job instead of a 'men in a shed' kit seems to have held up fairly well.

Also, as mentioned elsewhere - spotted this Triumph Herald 1100:

The Triumph Herald is so cute, you just want to hug it or something.

The Herald must be a very small car. Look how enormous that corolla looks

That's a Camry actually. The Herald is still tiny though, tiny and adorable, like a puppy.

It is a very small car, but that's not a Corolla.

My bad, I thought it was a corolla XRS. Never did it occurred to me the thought of a interesting Camry

Trust me, that Camry may look otherwise but it is a far, far cry from interesting. :p

Nope, didn't even have one on me that day. No, I'd asked if I could photograph her, and she said yes then was wondering why anyone would want a picture of her car.... and in the middle of that, I took the picture.

You took the opportunity to impress upon her just how UTTERLY AWESOME her car is and that she should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES allow it to be sold for scrap, right?

LOL, it would suck if she let it go for a Camry "Standard" (what 85% of older people drive in Central PA it seems, if they aren't in a Buick) or something else equally appliance like because "the kids suggested it" or something.

Heh. She said she was keeping it. Get this, her prior car was a Triumph TR3 - and some idiot stole it.

Whoa! That is all sorts of awesome, except for the jerkoff who stole it...hopefully he'll rot in Hell. :mad:
