    I use a lot of my own pictures for my desktop, so I have a bunch of randoms on Flickr, but if I'm in the mood for a good picture, I head over to www.wallhaven.cc, and before www.wallbase.cc died, it was good too.

    My current desktop...being a Kei fan, that means I love all sorts of small cars and, weirdly, as I'm a fan of the current FIAT 500 (I help moderate a global FIAT Facebook fan page, FIATALY), I've always wanted one of the classic ones for a 'fun' weekend car.

    Not fast, but relatively cheap to buy for a classic (you can get decent, but not pristine examples for like $6000-7000) and incredibly reliable as they were 2-cyl air-cooled engines, so less maintenance :). The original classic 500s had 499cc engines with like 18hp with a non-syncro transmission, but you can plug-and-play swap in the later, larger 650cc engines from the FIAT 126 with 26hp, and synchromesh transmissions to make them more 'modern road' friendly! I know, blisteringly fast, right? :p

    I have a new one.
    It was sent to me by a friend of mine from their track day.

    I vary them, but usually come back to a version of the new Alfa Romeo 4C. I love this car.

    I approve, haha! I actually help run an Italian car FB fan page, so we have articles and pics of the 4C quite often...gorgeous car!

    I got a new one. It just snuck up on me. If you don't know about the 300 SEL 6.8, go check it out now. Watch some Youtube videos. :)

    It makes the HAMMER beside it look absolutely civilian.

    I really respect Morgan especially considering how skilled their craftsman have to be to continue their traditional car-building methods......that being said, however the only Morgans that I am a fan of the styling on are their classic 4 / 8 series cars and the Three-Wheeler. The Aero 8s always looked a bit too weird for me with that crazy "cross-eyed" look. Saw a classic 4 series in town here awhile back! :)

    I try to use my own photos for desktop background but this is my most recent one.
    Being a fellow drifter and a long time Skyline owner/lover I had to put this up for awhile.
    Pic is from 10th Anniversary R32-SOU, check out the vid, trust me, it's dope!!!


    This is the desktop photo

    This is literally AS GOOD AS IT GETS!!!!!
