Rat Redux

UK is being pounded by snow again, and Seth just sent me this photo! Seems like he doesn't like me referring to it as a "Rat", but here in 'Merica that's what we call it, so I don't care! ;)

Thanks for the photo, don't worry it's been below freezing over here too, so I will come prepared. See you soon mate!...

Rat Hunter

I have featured this "Rat Hunter" before, which did caught the attention of Seth, the owner. I wanted to dedicate another post to it though, since I think what Seth has created so far is just Awesome!!! You can read more about this car and its metamorphism in Seth's thread at Retrorides.
Special Thanks goes to Seth for being such an amazing enthusiast. Hope to meet you soon mate!!!

Excitingly Big

Minx was the "world's most trusted car"?.. Really?... I didn't know that, that is awesome! ;)


Tehran has been suffering from unprecedented amount of air pollution lately, which has led to the closure of business, schools and more.
