#083-365 Eight

Boomer will understand straight away that the theme refers to the cylinders, that this hot road is so proudly showing, what amazes me is that it is street legal. This was part of the sideshow exhibits at the Redcliffe Show, which I attended a little while back and although I am not a car man per se, I was attracted by the colours and the chrome, and I think it makes a pleasing photo.

Great car - love the flames in the paint job. Nice angle for the photo, too.

Of course I got it Ron, 4 pipes coming out of one side and four on the other, if my math is still correct that would be eight. BTW I'm diggin the ride.

Hi Ron,
Awesome Car!! I'm with you, I'm not much of a car person, but love the pretty colors and chrome.

P.S. I've never read a Clarence Mulford book, but I'll look him up at the library. Thanks for the suggestion.

Fabulous shot! I really like how the bright yellow wall showcases that unique car.

So you are attracted to shiny objects?! Nice approach to theme.

It does not take a man to appreciate cars. Some women "know" cars and engines too. I like the chrome headers (coming off the head) and the long chrome muffler leading to the tailpipes. And yes, boomer, the 4 on this side means there are 4 on the other side, which equals 8 cylinder. This vehicle would be "hot" - capable of speed (and a gas guzzler). (That's a bit of car lingo for you!) So I can appreciate shiny objects too! lol

I'd really like a ride in this jalopy - I'd say drive it, but the steering wheel is on the wrong side for me. :D

I am from a family of professional drivers (not race car drivers) - three were over the road truckers, three of us women were school bus drivers and one continued on to become a dump-truck driver. I drove school bus for 12 years and even drove over the road too until I decided it wasn't my cup of tea. Was "second" mechanic to my late DH when it came to car repairs.

Great shot and composition.

Almost as colorful as a Lorikeet! And a very creative take on this theme too.
