    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: under the bridge

    #3 looks awesome due to the close up idea of highlighting details of the car. I just wish the focus was centered on the headlights and not the grills. #1 and #2 has too tight of a crop for me. Nice ride, btw.

    I have no idea what kind of car that is, but it sure looks like a fun ride!

    The grill seems to have the Citroen logo type in it. My wild guess would be a CITROEN, Chris.

    I bet 2 cups of coffee and a bagel that this might be a new model of Citroen, Chris.

    I have no idea how they look during the 60's but I have heard of the brand from a friend who is really a car buff. Must be famous back then.

    Hey Jiro, they sure were, especially for their sophisticated hydraulic control systems. Plus they were pretty fast out of the blocks as well.

    Just two cups of coffee? I was thinking about you yesterday, Jiro, when I was cutting my oldest's hair. I think I had had four cups of cups of Extra Dark Italian Roast (my fav) coffee and no food. Oh. My. Word. I was shakey and jittery. Oh, and I was going to say it was a Citroen but you beat me to it.

    Chris is asking me to slow down on the caffeine so I only bet 2 cups, but I did include a bagel with it. LOL! Ooooo... that's some nice coffee, Mary. I wonder how many coffee fanatics do we have here at CiC aside from us?

    What does Chris know? Hmmmm... I wonder how many? I like a dark, rich coffee but w/out that acidic bite... then I add sweetener and cream. It tastes more like coffee ice cream. My husband hates it when he picks up my cup by mistake.

    I thought Citroens are like "umbrella on wheels", this one looks like a speedboat with wheels.

    That was funny. That means you make your coffee quite unique from theirs. I like mine dark without creamer, just a small amount of sugar, not sweetener and it must be really hot! I'm weird.

    Mine has to be really hot as well. I always put it in the microwave since the cream cools it down, or I warm up the cream. I can't stand warm coffee. If it won' burn you it's just not hot eough.

    Hello Vandenberg ! !
    I like this image a lot. Lately Citroen is better in design terms.
    I post here the best car I have ever had. It was automatic - not very common in 2003 - 150 HP and a pleasure to drive. I long for it.
