    Ha Fountain. You beat the Greenwich Time on a major story once again. Poor Neil Vigdor must be peeing in his pants this morning.

  4. if i could get out of my mom’s basement long enough to get a job, my paddle would be raised high for that BMW 507

    Speaking of Delahayes, my father bought a late model used Delahaye once owned by King Mohammed V of Morocco. Every once in a while he used to take it out and drive me and my sisters to school in it. It’s now sitting in a museum in Boston. Here’s a look at this beauty…

      the most over-the-top (or fabulous) Delahaye i’ve seen is the 175 S Roadster with coachwork by Saoutchik:

      DB… The photo credit reads as follows: Photos by Douglas Wilkinson at the Blackhawk Automobile Museum in Danville, California.

      Please explain the Boston reference, and which museum specifically…

        Now, now, LA. Don’t be a buzz kill. For once, $Bob wasn’t spouting off his usual annoying nonsense. Let us not discourage this civil discourse by quibbling over mere facts, man. ‘sides, he didn’t claim the car in the photo was Dad’s, only one like it. My dad (I jest not) raced cars for fun in the early 60’s. I’ll be damned if I can find a pic from one of the races, though. I must be feeling unusually civil – chalk it up to the time of year!

    What I want to know is which is higher maintenance, the car or the model standing next to it? Can I take both for a test drive to see which is worth the price of admission?

    Here’s an even better vehicle, Al Gore’s private helicopter.

      Love the part in the article where they say: “Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change, but here ice is building up.” They go to reexplore an area that was ice free in an earlier expedition in 1929, and here it is all frozen in. Never let the facts get in the way of the official narrative. A good article.

      “…We’re stuck in our own experiment. We came to Antarctica to study how one of the biggest icebergs in the world has altered the system by trapping ice. We followed Sir Douglas Mawson’s footsteps into Commonwealth Bay, and are now ourselves trapped by ice surrounding our ship.

      Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change, but here ice is building up. We have found this has changed the system on many levels. The increase in sea ice has freshened the seawater below, so much so that you can almost drink it. This change will have impacts on the deep ocean circulation. …”

    I think I like the headlights on that model more than on the car.

    Is this an optical illusion? I don’t see a car in the pic. If I know LA, he can’t find it either. Man, it’s warm in here.

    Yos, it’s there. Here’s the trick to seeing it: Stop staring at the BFM and look behind her to the left. That’s where you’ll find the car Dullard Bill’s dad allegedly once owned a variant of.
