I’m as guilty as everybody else. We all coo and wow over every new shiny projectile that shows up in Hooniverse News. We also all salivate over whatever extraordinary artefact Hooniverse dredges up from Craiglist, whether it be an unseen-by-human-eyes-for-decades barnfind or some insane combination of chassis, engine and build-sheet that defies any possible explanation and is all the more awesome because of it.
We love this shit. But I can’t help but feel that we all look a little too far from home to find something to celebrate.
So, I’m laying down a challenge to
everbody anybody willing to accept. Your challenge is to go outside, right now, to your daily driver and photograph just one thing that you really, really like about it. If you can’t think of anything right now, the chances are you’re driving the wrong car. But go and take another look and find something. Then come back and show us.
Meanwhile, to provide inspiration and to show that beauty can be found anywhere, take the jump to see two features I like on a 1997 Rover.
