    Default OK they are cars, with nice colours

    Was cruising through Hamilton and stumbled across these bunch of Challengers all of course with nothing but the best in them a HEMI, I of course had to stop, its just a HEMI thing, I got a long well and it was fun, all HEMI owners shooting the breeze up best way to get performance boost and other gear head crap and music playing. This is some of where I lost shots because the dust, so yes this has been PSed, I will not sell it nor give it away, but I will be doing a small set and just sending them a few they would like and never PS'ed. Anyway I did a little PS'ing, go to town for my heresy ... This I Just did for fun ....

    Good picture. I would hope they will soon be relics of the past with there gas guzzling engines like the old Jaguars here which had similar designed engines.

    Seems odd to me fastest Diesel car has been built by a digger manufacturer and it is only car they built. "JCB Max". Rather puts things into place when one considers it has two 750bhp engines makes the rest seem a tad under powered!

    One realises how the diesel has taken over from these gas guzzlers when one sees filling stations with more diesel pumps than petrol.

    Here one only sees muscle cars lined up like that in owners club rallies. One for archives will soon be rare picture.

    Ah, what to say from a man who grew up with Muscle Cars,HEMI's, GTO The Judge, '55 Chevy with a 357 small block with dual 4 barrel carbs, and on and on. Oh the day will be a very sorry one, nothing matched American V8 Muscle then and once again they seem to be on the ball. I only ever owned one vehicle smaller than a 4.7 L V8 Dodge Magnum and it was a Inline 6 - 4.0 L. The New HEMI is a 345 CI (5.7 L) very impressive muscle in a gas guzzling AWD/4WD Pick Up and I love it. Then again I live in a Country that like takes 58 or 59 hours to drive across and nothing give you comfort like a beast of a pickup or car with a big MOFO America V8.

    And he built one totally useless car other than to claim he built one, he needs to build several hundred million to have a real impact I would think. Not anyone has yet to to prove the long term plausibility that even switching to diesel will stem the flow of fossil fuel, we get a few extra years and ignore the fact we need to move away from fossil fuels. You know people build single seat jet cars to break land speed records, that is about how important that car is, just a personal best and good for him. Bio diesel just makes food more expensive, impacts the poor and again not feasible. So if and when they actually put out a proposal to find an alternate fuel source I am in, as long as it doesn't starve people, rape anymore of the land to cut down trees to grow bio fossil fuel. People who worry about The Planet Earth, they have it wrong, it will be just fine with out us it was before we infested it lmaooo.

    I do like a nice car shot. The vignetting is cool.

    I do appreciate these muscle cars, although I have never owned one. I have however owned a Turbo 4.0L 6(inline) and various 4 cyl turbo cars which can hold their own against these beasts. Maybe one day, but for the city driving I do the smaller engines suit, but nothing sounds like the rumble of a V8 ... and IMHO if I have to smell smoke better it is from petrol than a diesel which I find particularly stinky.

    Great shot A.L. I think it's the first photo of yours that I've seen. My boy would like that on his wall for sure. When he was younger (about 14) he told me that he was never moving out because then he 'could afford a really nice car'. I told him that he was moving out and that was all there was to it. Aren't I a great mother?

    Really? Well I keep very little on the intertubes so could be why. Even here after a few days I clean out my flickr account, just habit.
