    The other day we spent a while admiring the perseverance of somebody who keeps an ’81 Cadillac Eldorado alive and in pristine condition, despite living in Iceland, not a country which The Firm With The Duck Spangled Crest has ever held as their number one target. But then again, driving around in the reddest, shiniest…

    I was staggered, I tell you. Blown away. Awestruck, dumbfounded and hornswaggled. Iceland is a tiny island with a population less than a third of a million souls. I couldn’t possibly have imagined the sheer diversity of cars that I would find during my recent trip to this beautiful, fascinating country. Click the jump below…

    Ya know what we haven’t done in a long time? A good olde Vehicles I Saw In Traffic©®™ post! What we have here is a common Volvo 850 sedan, but this one had its roof chopped off.

    The Thorn in Mistley is well known locally, and probably regionally, for its gastronomic credibility. People flock from miles around to sample some of the best seafood in the North East Essex area, all washed down with wine of suitable provenance. As a result of this it’s almost routine that there be something of interest…

    The weekend was crammed full of Peugeot 205 content, so I’m riding the coattails of that goodness even today. As a Helsinki sighting, here’s a very bright little Pug for your Tuesday enjoyment.
