1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I never use the right-hand side mirror. In fact, I believe older cars didn't even have right-hand side mirrors, only the left-hand one--and sometimes that was just an option.

    I particularly like the appearance of fender-mounts--you see them on MGs and Alfa Romeos as some of them didn't have factory side view mirrors.

    It is not an SM, the SM is much better looking and has the plexiglass over the headlights extended over the licence plate that is inbetween the headlights, thus following and complementing the shape of the bonnet.

    NR, why did you skip the XJS'

    Btw, a "nicer"car than the 6 Coupe.

    I didn't completely skip it, but I should have gotten a shot of the front too. It's a 12!

    I'm sure someone has done it already, but go buy a container of vintage American cars and unload them in Japan for profit. They sure do have an eye for stylin' cars over there.

    I agree,

    Throw in some old T-birds, Shelby's, Road Runners, and a 57 Corvette or two...you would absolutely be assured to make some money.
