Cool Cars

Well I finally found my camera (it had been missing since spring break) and so I now have the priviledge of showing two pictures I am proud of – the first is a little fuzzy I had a hard time getting a good picture but if you have discerning eyes you can see that it is a Dodge Viper.
This car is a little rarer than the Viper – I thought at first it was a Lamborghini Diablo but it is not. It is in fact a Lamborghini Countach Anniversario – manufactured some time between ’88 and ’90 . Pretty Cool eh? Well the coolest part about it is that “they” keep track of cars this rare, according to the registry there are (a minimum of) 8 of these registered in Texas. Most of the 657 (that is all they ever made) of these are in Europe.
Amazingly I saw these both on the same day, Sunday at the beginning of Spring break. I need to thank Mulltrain for rummaging around in the back of my car to get my camera out of my boot so that I could take these pictures. Fun times.

    Interesting pictures of cars. Even though I’m a guy, I don’t know that much about the kinds of cars by just seeing them; but perhaps I’ll develop that some day…

    And both of those cars were in your review mirrors. How fast were you going to keep those kind of cars behind you.

    Sadly it wasn’t that exciting — the Lamborghini was stopped at the same light as me and the Viper was stuck behind me on a one-lane road.

    On the other hand you should see the movie of me passing the Lamborghini ; )

    Pretty high tech — Jim West used to keep knives and explosives in his boot, but you have a camera hidden in yours. Where do you get them boots?

Thought For The Week

I want to clarify that there is no political problem that is not really a heart problem with hearts not connected to Christ. Only one Kingdom is really important, and this isn't it.

But just as it's sad to see poorly coded software, a badly built building, or an ugly city, it's even more sad to see a nation being thrown away. As custodians of this earth, we should do better.

-Mark Ritchie
