I really like that composition. The film colours suit the Cortina's image, and the inclusion of yourself in the shot, gives it an edge that stands out. It looks like you picked a good day to visit the glacier also.

Thanks:
The glacier has retreated over a kilometre since then; very sad!

Cortina was my girlfriends grandmothers. Girlfriend bought it off her and we drove from Sth Auckland all across the country. I married the gal and we now have a couple of grandkids (some motorbike pics soon will feature my grandson).

You are right about the holes Pieter. That is probably why other Meccano steam engine models were 'reverse engineered' with a little electro motor driving the piston instead of the steam engine working to produce electricity

Still nice to see those working models. Your two boxes might be worth some euro's these days in case you want to get rid of it.

Did you know we have a dedicated motorcycle thread?

Nice picture and it for sure is automotive - but the motorcycle thread could use some love

Bambina

On a trip to Italy, in Bologna, I was talking to a local and mentioned that we had lots of Fiat Bambinas in New Zealand.
He had no idea what I was talking about so I said Fiat 500 and he recognised the model (of course).
It had never occured to me that the Fiat 500 WASN'T called Bambina outside of NZ and prehaps Australia but there you have it: even in it's home country the name is unknown.
The fellow I was talking to broke into a huge grin: "That's a great name for that car" he said

I had one as a young man, I'll find that shot too and post it here but, in the meantime, here are a pair of glass Bambina's
