It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

And we're here with our cameras to catch it as it unfolds. We've been shooting the madness since before you were born. Here you'll find our forays into the world of cars and street scenes. Sometimes it's grail cars at a parking lot show; sometimes it's a survivor car hidden behind a fence. Sometimes it's news; sometimes it's a story triggered by a chance sighting.

  • a “formal” roofline instead of a hatch. Now there’s two body styles, like with a Mustang II. Woo hoo.
  • Stick some vinyl on the roof.  Now it’s like a Mustang II Ghia, and also a small Grand Prix (a car Pontiac liked and so did America).
