I don't recall seeing one of these yet...
German Fuchs Porsche wheel. So many imitators.
I was going to add the boomerang yesterday, but it's got a mention already...
I was kinda stuck finding the exact right pic I had in mind and got side tracked on something else...
oh yes, even 12-stringy at times hah
This is a million years old but it's worth a watch:
My first car was one of these, about the same age. Mid 1950s? Loved it.
Also a +1 for the Volkswagen. I had 2 1963's and a 1970.
But these are more to my taste nowadays
Edit - PS she who must be obeyed said "Anything Audrey Hepburn ever wore." Who am I to disagree? Find your own pics.
This looks like my brother's garden - despite the Lotus Elise in the garage, he would much rather be out on 2 wheels!
Haha - it must be a toddler thing - my Uncle Joe was giving us a lift from the station in his MG TC (known in the village as 'the Red Devil')... I was sat in the front on my dad's knee when Uncle Joe took a hard right turn at some speed. The flimsy door swung open and I nearly went with it but for some fast hands pulling me back in!
Well, I am expecting a very good replacement for that boomerang :0)
A truly timeless design :

lots of different types and uses for the Boomerang ,,,, hunting different animals or for killing in wars...
the returning one was good for the fellas hunting water birds rising up ... if they missed any birds they didn't have to go over into the scrub on the other side of the water to find it.... if they hit, the stick would drop near the bird... making good throwing weapons takes a bit of time and not something you want to lose...
hunting in open grasslands they could pick them up as they walked along.... they didn't need them to come back, also those throwing boomerangs had a different shape and heavier to knock kangaroos out...
of course the returning ones were more of a fun thing to throw..
Timeless, yes - you can see the shapes evolving over hundreds (thousands?) of years as different designs were tested and improved on.
A good point - a classic design is usually the simplest one - paring the object down to its essential functions and discarding the rest
Their existence depended on them being really good at throwing those tools.... spear throwing as well....
My other half said Audrey Hepburn. But you just read my mind!
When I was a teenager I read about a local dentist who made laminated boomerangs so I got one and still have it to this day. What a revelation over the cheap toys I had.
Love Jags. But save some garage space for a Shelby. And an Alpha. And an MG. And an Austin. And a Gullwing. And a Targa. And an Avanti.
And whatever happened to Saab Sonnets? The minute you turn your back . . . .
