The Xm picture thread... :D

Post by andmcit » Thu Feb 04, 2010 1:18 pm

How about having this one thread where all 'powerful'/arty/strange or even just plain nice pictures of these visually
distinctive cars can be collated together for newcomers as well as all the regulars to pop in and appreciate?

I'm not suggesting a member's cars picture gallery where it's purely a resume of 'regulation' shots tallied up with
who has what in which colour and wheels etc but something where more unusual shots not normally seen are all
in one place. OK, it seems I'm a bit quiet at work this minute but here's some I have on my photobucket file that
I've saved along the way because I liked them (or in some cases they're horrid but I cannot take my eyes off them... :? )

Just nice cars/pics:

Jan - that's an amazing cake in the last picture (well it looks like it maybe be one!!)

Paul - I thought I'd titled the smashed ones under 'downright ugly' :?

"Odd front bumper over-riders - headlamp washers?" Yes, that's correct - they're fitted to series one cars over here in Norway, series 2's have the nice discreet pop-up one's same as in the uk.
