Nothing new in the audio world for me, but it’s been a while since I posted it
Can anyone identify this? It’s in the middle of the Sahara in 1959, if that helps
Alternate title: gmctavish needs to work on shooting with a camera that will let him mess up
My future plans have included a 4 door Montero for a little while now, since eventually the Raider will be killed by rust. As far as I can tell, Monteros were never sold in Canada other than as the Raider, until the third generation. So finding one already up here, for $600, is extremely tempting...
I feel like I’ve done a version of this before, but I’m not sure, so here you go. To keep this more manageable and relevant, I’m only including cars that were at some point my daily driver, other than my first car which I only drove once.
Why do people make “replicas” that look nothing like the car they’re a “replica” of?
Gibsons is a small town on the coast of BC, only accessible by water or air. I went there last weekend to buy a camera, and now I want to live there.
I’m sleeping in and buying breakfast and nice coffee on my way to work as a present to myself. Post old German and Swedish cars pls

What may be the best Minolta SLR, mine for $50. This thing feels like it’s milled from a solid block of steel. Heavy and feels like real quality. Unfortunately the mirror is staying up unless I move the exposure dial, but other than that it seems to be working perfectly.
One of my favourite songs to come out of Vancouver in the last while. Lots of artists and musicians have moved away with how expensive things have gotten, so it’s good to see that there still some new music here.
I’ve only posted the “best” ones, which is to say the least bad, since this camera is pretty terrible. This is what the Minolta is replacing for compact film camera purposes. If some of these look familiar, that’s because I’ve already posted versions of the same photos taken with other cameras. I’ll make another post…
On film that is. My dad shot film until a few years ago, but I never had much interest in it until this thing. I actually have the little Opus point and shoot to thank for this, but the Minolta is the thing that’s really got me hooked. I’ve been on about a two week binge of info and reviews of more cameras, in an…
But I’m feeling really good today. I got a raise at work last week, plus strong hinting at another bonus, and being told by the owner that he wants me there long long term. My significant other has a job for the first time in 6 months, and it’s a good one, starting at what I just got raised to.
A couple more period correct photos of the Raider, as requested.
Anyone ever see one of these before?
There’s not much that can make me giggle and smile like a child, but the sound that car makes is something that does.
This has been a PSA
No car content here. I want to take more photos of cars, but that hasn’t really worked out yet. In the meantime, enjoy a couple of old bridges.
