And completely by chance, the above yellow Maserati pulled up almost alongside this little number... A boy on a skateboard uttered some exclamations of surprise!

Jessica. I loved her, but she didn't love me.

Great car, but for short periods of time. Owned her for 9 years and sold her last year for $4,000 more than I paid for her. :)

She’s a beauty. The S2K is one of my favourites. Not surprised you sold it for more than you paid - they are becoming collector items, especially ones in the condition yours looked to be in.

Had to stop by my auto mechanic's this morning, to pick up a car he had just finished repairing for me, and I noticed this semi-vintage and modified muscle car sitting in parking area, waiting for mechanical ministrations. A Chevrolet Camaro...

The interesting lines of its (optional) rear spoiler are rather intriguing.

The classic old-fashioned round headlights seem almost at odds with some of the other design elements.

It's one of those cars that looks like it's going fast....even when it's standing still.

I didn't get a look at the engine but one gets the feeling there must be a lot of cubic inches underneath that hood.

This last angle from in front - focusing on the headlight and part of the car's front hood, with the windshield looking unnaturally thin, thanks to the distortion and perspective of the wide angle, is my favorite image from this series.

Cool external rear-view mirror housings, too.

Of course, if you're into the 'muscle car' look, it helps to have wheels that look fast, also
I'm guessing they probably are quite capable of propelling this Camaro along at speeds well ahead of the posted Speed Limit signs. But whoever bothers to read those signs, anyway?

The windows were down, so I got a quick glimpse of the dashboard, as well.

And... voilà! There you have it.

I've a soft spot for Morgan 3 wheelers. My mum and dad had one (with a Matchless engine) but had to get rid when son number 2 (i.e. me) was born. Theirs wasn't as flash as these still racing versions, which look a bit of a handful, from the 1930's.

Thanks, Walter.

The phone's a relatively cheap Chinese ZTE T86. They are all but indestructible, with a Gorilla Glass screen, and included Gorilla Glass screen protector; IP68 to 1.5-2m; drop proof; superb reception (perfect signal inside a lift (or a refrigerator!); and a battery life of around 4-8 days (14-15 hour days); USB-C; etc, etc. Also takes up to a 512 GB microSD card, IIRC.

The camera is a dual lens job that supports AI fake shallow DoF (which I've almost never used), and also takes RAW + JPEG. I have one program set to square format and the other to 4:3.

I'm very pleased with it. My 6 y.o. previous ZTE T84 still works fine, but kept running out of memory (only 2 GB / 16 GB RAM) as filled with pre-installed and unremovable Google crap. The T86 has 4 GB / 64 GB with almost no pre-installed crap. Android 10.

Are you in the U.S.?? (Oh, i see not). That battery life would be life-changing indeed.
