    Great idea henk, there's an '82 sport quattro, an '89 Camaro and (I think) and 60's Bronco too - I'll try to do the Quattro first but I'm only just a beginner in photography so be warned.

    EDIT: Either that or you're talking about lower class cars and I just didn't get it?

    you can put in any car you want, Americans can come up with an common Ford Fairlane or whatever, an 89 Camaro would be OK, but remember, there has to be a story to it.

    Great - I'll look into the history of the Camaros

    And just one more thing - if you're basing your report on only just one car of it's kind, should there be a report of it's history as a car or it's own individual history? I sense a good storyline with the quattro (it might be possible that it was a former rally car - as the only other of it's kind was the Group B S1) so if I meet up with the owner then I'll definetly ask. It'll have to be on thursday though as school is keeping me very busy.

    personal touches will add to the interest of the car.

    How about anything from the often over-looked Singer and Riley?

    BMC&Rootes groups,By The Way,I admire Your wisdom for putting this footnote:"I find the whole business of religion profoundly interesting, but it does mystify me that otherwise intelligent people take it seriously"

    I'm like You a Scientific type,but knowing Psychology,helped me to express verbally the real reason,so no mystery'll be there any longer,the cognitive development of each individual is the 'culprit',You see it has to do with education(Formal,or Informal),I was lucky that at age 7 years old,i happened by a rare chance to borrow a Science book from the library,it opened my mind!,however,not many folks are that lucky.and so they stay fixed in an earlier stage/s of cognitive development,often it's not their fault,the problem're the fanatics that hurt others(to say the least).
    You appears to be on a higher rung of the cognitive development ladder,being more scientifically educated(That's my assumption).

    none of both, but others are free to post, as long as they present the pics together with a story. That makes the corner different from Matt's hide-out
