    Oh, and I certainly appreciated them. I blew every penny I had to buy a 73 just like the one in the pics, when I was 23 years old (1978):eek: I’d watched the CSL win at Sebring and Daytona, and I was on a mission to get that car.

    I had a buddy with a white 73 911S and we’d swap keys for a couple of days every once in a while. I just had to get to used to that dang Porsche shift linkage - aim to center of ashtray for 3rd gear! And tiptoe around the cornering limits. Very fun times. BTW, have you seen what a clean 73 911S goes for these days? Holy cow!

    Timeless - I don't know... but this Morris Minor is doing pretty good for 65 years old. Its designer, Alec Issigonis also came up with another classic - the Mini. I photographed this one in a field just this afternoon, on my daily walkabout (we are allowed one a day), so I couldn't resist posting it here!

    And to get it back to images, this is my idea of what a beautiful, timeless auto looked like in 1955.

    This one really is a timeless classic. The K2 kiosk was designed by British architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1924. Millions of people around the globe associate this image with London - in fact they were used in many places throughout England, like this one I photographed in Pott Shrigley near Macclesfield just a few days ago... and it still has a telephone in it!

    Yeah that's very cool. I have a Hamilton Jazzmaster, i was googling the guitar and a pic of the watch came up amongst the search results. Had to have one! They have so many great designs.

    My Dad had one of those in 1960-61, when he/we were stationed (USAF) in Toul-Rosieres, France.
    I actually fell out of it when I was a toddler.
    This was eons before cars seats, and seat belts.
    I was playing with the door handle.
    I found out how it works, the hard way.
    Actually being a toddler, I think I was made of rubber.
    I didn’t get hurt, but 60 years later, I still remember.
    I’d LOVE to own one.
    Dad’s was British Racing Green.

    I’m not even from Orstralia, but I can see this being a timeless design.

    Porsche 911 for 'dress up'. This one for everything else. I had a few of these, growing up. '69 was the best year...

    I saw your post come as an email alert, with no pic, just "[ATTACHMENT]". But I could see who was posting, and your avatar. Soon as I saw it.... D'oh! Of course.

    Maybe gotta be a Deadhead to appreciate it, but there's a ton of timeless artwork...
