A hundred landmark cars 

Paul Gover has a list of his 100 most significant in the Murdoch Press today. The list starts off pretty well, but gets more dubious as you go down—but bear in mind that Gover is writing partly from personal experience (he has driven a first-generation Lancia Lambda), and it is Australian-centric. I would be hard pressed to name a strong 100 myself.
   At a quick glance, I can’t spot current vehicles—most, if not all, are historical. The —now a Caterham—is there, and one could argue that Gover refers to current cars when he writes of the Landcruiser and Prius.
   It could also mean there’s not much out of today’s crop that could go down in history, unless the Tesla Roadster and others take off in a big way.

Is that a parade of vintage cars? I love vintage cars!  
Not a parade, as far as I know, but it was at a car show. It’s a photo off Flickr—I understand that as long as I link the thumbnail to the Flickr page, it’s allowed.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
