    IMO, the Hornet and the Maverick never looked better. May the delivery trucks return from whence they came... How many who have watched this found themselves wanting one of them for a project? How many said "aww that's not that bad.." They are like pets aren't they?

    Ever see that History Channel show “Life After People”... Welcome to Earth: Population Zero. I loved the Life after People show and the follow up series. Just goes to show how insignificant we are.

    Beautiful photographs. Something very zen about the whole thing.

    I'll never forget a rainy February day (redundant, I know) driving around somewhere in Snohomish County, Washington while house hunting with the wife... winter of 1999. I was driving along a rural road and on a long right-hand sweeping curve at the base of a hill, obviously clear-cut some time in the 80s a flash of orange caught my eye. There, about 75' up this steep hillside was a Triumph TR7 with an alder tree growing right up through the middle of it! How the hell did it get up there? I made a mental note to come back on a dry day and photograph it, but I was soon distracted and forgot the location. I've driven just about every road in the foothills since trying to find that car. Given that it is now a decade later the car is likely completely overgrown and invisible. sigh. --chuck
