She even dropped by for a visit.

Good thing she didn’t go searching...

(All kidding aside, I have great respect for her work as a spy photographer and am really enjoying her artistic ventures on Facebook)

2012 Ford Explorer test mule

No, it's NOT a Taurus X
The front end was grafted on from a Flex

The bright side of my long commute from Surprise was this Explorer mule out flood testing in Phoenix.

[Ed: based on the side creases, it might be a Lincoln, rather than a Ford, based on what’s been shown on AutoblogHowever, their Lincoln story said a current Lincoln front end grafter onto an Explorer.

Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc

That’s one cracking motor! Brave owner parks his unique £1.6m Bugatti Veyron supercar made of PORCELAIN in Paris street | Mail Online.

I did not shoot it with my puny p/s.  Brenda Priddy was not there. She did not totally scoop me or this website with her spyness and armloads of SLRs with 1000mm lenses.

I was also not at Waldo’s, nor were people walking around naked on dares.

It’s a shame, really, because that would have been a better day than the one that actually happened.  Stupid REM sleep.  So much promise; so little delivery.

I expect you to drive. I lead a charmed life – survivor car capital of the world, auto festivals every week – girlfriend actually encourages me to go (as opposed to the ex, who would punish me for hobbies that weren’t shared), actually met the world’s greatest spy photographer.  So, let’s play name that Aston:

Aston Martin DB5
Bumpers are for sissies
