So this is an idea that I have taken from another Forum I am a regular on. The idea is that you complete the challenge and then set a challenge for the next person. The challenge is usually a photo of your Locost in a location or near something etc.
Rules
1. Take a photo for the challenge do not use an old photo (or just use an old photo if you want to).
2. Post a new challenge after the challenge is completed
3. Keep the Challenges easyish
4. If a challenge is not completed withing a week a new challenge can be set, by the previous photo winner.
5. Have fun this is supposed to be a light hearted thread to enjoy

Example A Locost with your Wife and Son in the seats.

Ok.

Here's mine (red and silver on left) and another (yellow and silver) on right. Plus a Caterham (left background) and a Birkin (way back on the right).

How about a Locost in rush hour traffic?

I know this can be a really fun thread but it needs to get off the ground. Someone must be able to take a picture as they are driving in rush hour, I would love to help but my car isn't even a roller yet.

My car is barely a roller, but I think I can come up with some artsy pics. Nothing my g/f would allow me to hang on the living room wall, mind you, but I'm thinking I can find something interesting.

I do have some bloody fingerprints on my Lalo body panels that might be interesting?

Your photo does not really count JD but in the interest of keeping the thread going we can give you a pass. Now you need to come up with the next photo challenge. Let make it really easy this time.

I'll take that one Graham. This is from the 2011 Gathering. Tom Suppa took this photo of my car and posted it. This was shortly after we arrived after >13 hrs on the road IIRC. The hood is off but the luggage is still packed.

Image

next challenge: How about a Seven in the midst of an emergency repair on the side of the road.

Yeah, right, like that would ever happen! :shock:

Pity about the new-photo requirement, I'm sure we could find plenty of old ones in the archives. Guess we'll need to wait 'till the next member has a fender fall off.

OOps, In my excitement to participate, I missed that "do not use an old photo" requirement. Sorry! I guess my entry is disqualified and subsequently, my challenge......... Back to the "packed for a trip" challenge.

P.S. Never mind this person. There is nothing to see here. Move along.....
