I prefer action shots hence this is one of my favorites. The smoke is tyre smoke as my inner rear wheel was spinning as I came out of the hairpin.

So many photos to choose from. I like the first one I took of it sitting in the garage where it sat untouched for 12 years after being painted. Then there's all the photos of it in a gazillion pieces during the mechanical refurbishment. Of course I like the photos of the completed car (well, almost, it will never really be totally completed) on my driveway on a beautiful late summer afternoon before a short drive to the ice cream shop.

But if I have to choose one, it would have to be of its first visit with some British relatives (the car's, not mine) at the September 2011 MG all British show in St. Louis, MO. It was also its longest drive to date (34 miles!) in iffy weather (hit a few rainy spots on the way there). memini55's (Mark's) Elite and Elan are in the background. Great memories.

This is one of my favourite photos from our best trip in the Dolomites.
I think this is Canacei if I remember correctly.

Anyone a Photoshop guru? I'd love to see my car's wheels (at Road Atlanta, two posts previous) with dark gray spokes.
Thanks,

These two are not in Scituate, photos were taken in August, 1996 on a trip out west. A very different set of scenery than the Blue and green that this flat lander is used to.

Since a couple of you have posted more than one photo, I guess I can as well. First is a photo of my S2 racecar at Watkins Glen, second, my road S2 near the summit of Mount Evans, 14,130 feet above sea level; third is of her at Talladega Raceway just before going an indicated 115 MPH and finally my Plus 2S (AKA Elan Plus 2S, Papa Elan or Fat Bastard Elan :D ) before Randy (Sea Ranch) cleaned her up and made her respectable.
