A bit bored and took a couple of pictures at Christmas of mum's and her husband's wheels, he's recently downgraded from a late nineties SL500 AMG to this Brabus:

You can see his other car here in the background, a Series 2 Landrover soft top:

Mum's on her second Mini Cooper (clam shell bonnet type):

Although she has also got a Series 2 Landrover hardtop that she got for christmas the other year.

So any of you got some interesting or semi interesting vehicle shots of family vehicles on this cold winter's night?

I really do love those old Land Rovers and I will own one, here's one of the nicest I've seen:

Re: family vehicles, nothing too radical or exciting but here they are!

Dad's:

Mum's:

And one of mine which, quite frankly, should be driven by someone of the previous generation but I love it:

Old Man currently has

80 Fiat 124 Spider
62 MGB
and A Subaru Legacy.

His coolest car in the past was a WB Holden Statesman Deville Magnum. Rare car that one. Fell off a hoist when being serviced.

Dad never had an interest in cars, his lifetime of cars was Jowett Van, Mini 850, Metro and finally Datsun Sunny...had it 12 yrs and moaned like mad after 11 when it needed its first new battery. :lol:
Dad in law likewise...he is a Toyota Corolla man and is in 6th by 20mph...
I get mine off my grandad who was dispatch rider in the great war.

:lol: :lol: Clearly it does!

It's not that we're a smelly bunch in my clan but I usually open the sunroof (if it exists) when photographing cars! I don't really take photo's of people, just cars so I like them to be aesthetically pleasing! :thumb:

My Mum poles around in a 2.5 X type, which, I am reliably informed by someone 'on the inside' are 'Mostly shit'.

Father in Law drives a 1.8T Octavia I recommended that he should buy 7 years ago. They both earned their badge of honour this summer:

Mum's got a 2003 A4 Avant TDi

Dad has a choice... 2.0 DTi Zafira (dog), 2.2 6pot BMW Z3 or a 1954 MG TF which he's in the process of rebuilding a new (overbored & race con-rodded) Agra engine for. Should be good for 60bhp now :D
