Hideous and unnecessary. It my be sacrilege, but I am also not a fan of the DB5 as I always find it out of proportion: For some reason, it went downhill when the DB4 got longer and taller and the DB6 is simply horrid. Before that, the DB4 is close to perfection, especially in open headlight configuration. And early DB2s are my favorites. The DB4 GT Zagato on the other hand is a completely different story ... Mike
   Well, first I thought "Gary, just chill". There are a few reasons - and Mickey and Alex mentioned the most obvious ones why I scratch out my visage. Second thought was "Well, Gary has a point". Doubt it has anything to do with insecurity, but showing your face can make it much more personal. I am also active on classic car boards and there, I would never scratch out my beautiful mug if it is in a car shot. So, Gary, that one is for you. Mike [[SPOILER]]  Back to rocking...
Wanted to make an effort to wear more EG. So here is this week's attempt. Love how uncomplicated it is to throw stuff on in an "wear everyday" kinda way. And love the spring weather in LA: Wear your winter layers at night, wear shorts during the day. Mike   [[SPOILER]]   [[SPOILER]]   [[SPOILER]]   [[SPOILER]]
 Ha, I also bought it from PDG. And will also throw it on with the Penn ... Finally got around to start buying EG. Picked up the Aviator in grey tropical wool from Jack Straw on a business trip up to Seattle (Still my favorite piece) and bought the Cambridge shorts in the black batik print yesterday. My favorite print this season, I think ... Also tried on the blue (Ripstop? Pique?) USN pants - Found the fit and especially the color very boring. Also tried on the Long...
[[SPOILER]] I think this looks great and the shirt is well worn as overshirt. Love it with the pants. missed those last season and they look really good. 
No, no, going slow only works if the car is right: 1) Very old 2) Very light 3) Built with a purpose in mind (Honda Civic, you kidding, right?) 4) Rare 5) Can break easily   For your consideration: The best "Drives slow, feels fast, ass on the road" car: Abarth 750GT. Less than 60 hp from 750cc (pending your state of tune). You get a good one for $120k, ~250 made (We think …), Zagato hand made body, Abarth tuning genius, Fiat underpinnings. It does simply not get...
Still no SH? Come on, man, don't be a sour puss, come back. You are funny and got taste. A good bulletin board needs 1) strong opinions an 2) folks that can credibly back it up.    Good job, Sugarbutch, for digging out some nice stuff.   Mike
Pitching in on the horsepower discussion. The most satisfying driving experience of any Porsche I have ever put my hands on: 1956 356A - 60hp of eternal bliss behind your ass from the "Normal" engine. The car feels like it has double that horsepower and, from the beginning, Porsche knew it is the handling, not the power per se.   I will regret to all eternity that I ever sold this particular car. The best colors Porsche ever put on a car and, in my opinion, apart from...
I am late to the party (Traveling like hell over the past three weeks) but Shoreman, your write up is brilliant. Dude, I am ten years older than you and (try sometimes? Often?) to dress even younger. Inappropriate? Mid-life crisis? Hell, yes!   Love what you are doing!   Mike
