Hillman Hunter caught in the wild! And is that Persian script on the left of the bootlid? Driven by a Javier Bardem-alike but I didn't have the chance to praise his fine choice of falconry nor question him over its potentially Peykan sympathies

when I was a child these were automotive driftwood -  I can recall a white Singer Vogue living nearby - utterly unremarkable at the time. Nowadays - when the Nissan Jomit and Ferrari California so pollute automotive form (and yes, there were plenty of offenders when the Singer was in vogue too) there is a nicely restrained elegance to this car's form, as well as the clear sensation that the sculpted edges have been welded about the horizontal middle...

Baby you can dwiive my car...

I've never seen it parked the other way awound so cannot say if the paasenger side is inscwiibed similarly. As it is, I like to think it serves as a remiinder where to put the shopping and where to sit... as I imagine it's oowners fleeting viisits to the real world requiiwe some pwompting.

Actually opinions are diviided over the Pwiincess Beemer. I thought it was an act of voluntary infantilization (as if the stiick-on M badge doesn't do enough) but my assistant thinks the car was a gift - probably from father to daughter - maybe it's even an attempt to make her more... anyway I really hope it belongs to a man.

Unlikely. Best guess is a teaching assistant or p.e. teacher, given where it's parked

your car gets your hipdom forgiven

nice kit, not sure what it is tho

restyled by snow

restyled by snow 2

I'd like to think that this is closer to what Citroen originally had in mind and that Peugeot rejected the translucent canopy with augmented reality interior on cost grounds

restyled by snow

restyled by snow... worst of the Crossfire's excesses cured. (what a name... why not 'Collateral Damage'...or 'Friendlyfire')
