I like this shot, it is very well done, lucky or not the planning was great.

BTW, I'm not in the 'auto detailing business' but I like my cars having 'that wet look'.
Me too. Kind of like this?

Sorry about that Ted. I've corrected it now.

(I had not bothered at first to remove the password as I didn't think anyone would want to see the original.)

I wish. I really like to look at the classic cars and hot rods at auto shows.

Mine is the Trans-Am that you see under my name for this forum. A special car that I've had since I bought it new back in 2001. Still drive it frequently, and often get good comments from strangers. (Something I don't get from the 2 SUVs that my wife and I drive.)

(In the past I've also had a GTO and a Z-28 Camaro)

Steven, I know what you mean. The first two cars I owned were a '67 Firebird (the 326) and a '67 MGB convertible. Oddly, the OEM "wide-oval" (but bias-ply) tires on the Firebird only lasted for 10K miles (why would that happen?). But even so, in the car department it's been largely downhill ever since, for me.

Except for one car - my '86 Acura Legend. That was the first year for Acura so that car basically was a Honda Accord with a 2.5 liter 24-valve V-6 stuffed in it, reasonably light weight (not even power seats) not porked up like later years. With the 5-speed stick I could blow the doors off of most other cars. I wish I still had it.

It's not you Bob; it's not showing on my computer tonight either. Apparently Smugmug must be having some difficulty. If it doesn't come back soon I'll report the problem to Smugmug. It is rare for them to have any problems.

Boy, you bring back memories! I had a 1966 Goat that had the "wide oval" Tiger Paws with a thin red line instead of the white stripe. I bet nobody in this young crowd remembers those.

Hi Steven, just been scrolling through the POD and they had a pic of a seal in there. Similar set up but the other was barking. I liked yours just as much, especially the way the water was flowing off his face.
