Happy Friday

My favourite blog, Jalopnik, used some of my pictures for their Down on the Street Bonus Edition.

Jalopnik, "obsessed with the cult of cars", has a regular posting called Down on the Street where Murilee Martin, a resident of Alameda California, posts pictures of cars parked on the street.

With Alameda's warm climate cars survive there for years even if they've started to rust, unlike my beloved Geo Metro after one winter in Ontario.

Also, apparently, Alameda residents rarely drive their cars off the island, so in an automotive sense, Alameda is the island that time forgot.

The "bonus edition" part of Down on the Street started when Martin became inundated (I imagine) with pictures of cars from elsewhere. There have been many excellent submissions from Denver.

Anyhoo, I submitted some pictures and they were posted. Woot! Woot!

Oh, and if you're really not into cars, don't bother with the links below, because they'll just lead you to pictures of a bunch of old cars, and you won't understand why anyone in their right mind would want to see them.
