Easter Friday Madness at the Ring

I guess everybody had to get a couple of rounds in before looking for Easter Eggs. The Lincoln 2 door Coupe was the bomb.

I could probably do that considering I survived rush hour in Albuquerque.
Yeah, it would be kind of hard to pass the Lincoln. It takes up a lot of real estate, especially while underway.

I like the mini with the luggage on top. Makes me think vacationers took a wrong turn.

And about a third of the way through , a FIAT 600 goes past with rear wheel arches faired in because its been modified to put the rear wheels about 30cm apart in the middle. Why?

I saw that and wondered the same thing. Damned strange, wasn't it?

You talking about the grey fiat 500 with the Isetta rear wheels that is an aftermarket mod to drive a car with a Moped/Scooter DL in Germany at the age of 16. Its called the Ellenator"

You don’t have to wear a helmet, even in a soft top? Wow!
NB little car with luggage on the roof is a Trabant, former Eastern European two stroke favourite with the body allegedly made out of papier-mache, tho in fact it was recycled cotton waste and resin!

So they have a rule that says if one takes a little little car and make it less stable, it is then ok to let the youngest and least experience drive it in today’s traffic!

That is a dissappiontment.
