They're American makes, so a camera...would be something in the Kodak line.

I needed some work but that was fun, Still needs some motor work (more HP's) My 1985 Mustang GT 5.0L Conv.

Nice 5 liter convert. A fun, performance car.

A good buddy of mine has one. He bought (new) a 1989 25th anniversary Mustang GT, 5 speed, 5 liter V8. Great cars...love the sound of that 302, small block V8...especially as you run it through the gears.

BTW he has a film Pentax KX and his wife has a digital Pentax KX.....both bought new. Dyed in the wool Pentaxians....wonder what that means ?



In this case I know....both times they bought their cameras they asked me for advice....

I know I drew such an analogy on these forums a few years ago. I'm sure I'm not the only one. BTW... Olympuses are the Mitsubishis of the camera world. Again, like Pentax and Subaru, not perfect. But highly functional, useful and ever-so-interesting.

I knew I read it from somewhere ....I bet I picked it up from your analogy. It's stuck in my mind and I think there's a lot of truth to it.

My car? A nondescript one indeed. Not even worth a shot at. That has been 3 Accords in a row

Work vehicle is whichever is assigned - currently a GMC pickup.
Personal vehicle is 1990 Dodge Dakota.
But (other than hiking boots) vehicle used most often is Nishiki:
