Doubt if they'll be too pleased, their own property looking to be maintained on good nick, which can't be said of the car.
But the close association does allow for a good shot, Herman.
Good paint job HermanBlush well done.
Nice juxtaposition of contrasts, Herman. Really good shot and composition, and I'll see you and call you on rust. I love shots of rust also. Something about the beauty of decomposition.

Yes Herman I stay in Gauteng. See the Machine Guns on fixed lines and the Four Ridge backs. I thought all Cape cars were something like this, full of rust , they say here never buy a car from Durban or The Cape

The lovely bright canopies help to emphasise the rust on this old car which is beautiful in it's own way.

Now Mikbee would love this as he was the rust lover of us all.
It amazes me too that this should be allowed on the road.
Great shot though Herman and love the MOD too, what a hooot…..GrinGrinGrin

So that is what has become of erstwhile epzer Mikbee, he's only been touring around South Africa in his old banger! No wonder he's been absent from here, I wouldn't bank on him getting back home though as his motor looks like it will fail its MOT!GrinGrinGrinGrin
