    G'day

    It sort of reminds me of the perspective effect where you take a close up shot of your dog's nose with a fisheye lense.

    It is an Opel GT from late 1960's

    cheers

    Yup, it's a 1970 Opel GT, love those 70s colors!

    While we're on a green roll, here's another for the mix, although my shot is a bit scrunched.

    I saw something just like that in LA last month.

    Must be the same one, since I'm in Santa Monica. I hope there's not more than one, lol.

    Karen posted this over in the Support forum, but I'll copy her note here, since this is a pretty active discussion:

    I'm afraid so.

    It's the product of an illicit liason between a Scion Xd and a wheelbarrow.

    Only in SoCal eh?

    I'm thinking the front bumper looks more like an xB though.

    I'd just like to note that I got two consecutive pictures, correctly.

    Which is a new record for me... ;-)

    I'm OK with Porsche making SUVs/CUVs/sedans as long as they keep making great sports cars.

    I'm not OK with BMW doing that AND changing their 'ultimate driving machines' into soft, complicated sedans that are no longer class leaders...

    It's a Lancia B50 Cabriolet, with the world's first production V-6 under the hood. The engine is aluminum, and the 4-speed transmission integrated with the rear axle. All that in 1950--wow! Lancias of that time were beautifully engineered cars.

    G'day, A very beautiful Pininfarina designed Lancia Aurelia convertible. Reminds me of a smaller version of an early 50's Bentley convertible.

    If Santa feels generous?

    Cheers

  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,800

    Yep, that's a 1950 Lancia Aurelia B50 Cabriolet by Pininfarina

    You have two options - you can use the Image button and paste the URL in the dropdown box or click on Attach a file and browse to a photo on your computer. This is an attached file:

    G'day

    Anyone care to identify this one? I took this at a transport museum in Alice Springs in Central Australia

    Okay so the photo has posted but resizing it might be an issues. How do I get this right? Cheers

    A Griswold Coronet?

    If you click on the photo, it'll blow up to full screen size. And there should be a magnifying glass you can click and zoom on stuff, like the badging on the rear quarter panel. :)

    At least, that's the way it's working for me in IE11.
