Speed Metal

City Daily Photo's Theme Day today is Metal.

It's a perfect excuse to post this photo from the recent South Pasadena Clean Air Car Show. Global warming? From this vantage point the future looks pretty cool.

Hey Laurie, Happy first theme day! And what a view. . . Under the hood of the wave of the future, a hydrogen fueled engine. Very cool choice!

Looking under the hood there, I wonde r how they squeezed it all in. What ever have to the days when you actually had room under the hood to work on things?

"Louis" is amazed at how people buy into this 'Global Warming' idea. The fact is that the average global temperature during the decade is actually .6º COOLER than in the previous decade. And while the arctic ice cap is shrinking, those who are creating the 'Global Warming' hysteria ignore the fact that the ANTARCTIC ice cap is growing. Many of the same people who are crying 'Global Warming' now are the same ones who, 30 years ago, were using the same scare tactics that we were creating a new ICE AGE! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....

Rant aside, "Louis" tries to think of earth-friendly ways of doing things. We DO have a responsibility to conserve where we are able to do so....

"Louis" thanks you for visiting San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

A few years ago I might have found it interesting but now I don't drive it bores me - but that's only this particular photo - your blog as a whole is NOT boring - far from it.

Our capitalist overlords have been baiting us with these cars for decades, but pull them back from production until they have squeezed every petrol dime out of us first. I'm tapping my foot impatiently here. Nice choice, Laurie.
