Yep, borrowed it, but I couldn't resist. One of the most impressive photos I've ever seen. :cheers:

What's the next challenge? :?:

I wanna play too. Does this one count?

Front right is my 1972 Fiat 124 Spyder donor on the day that it arrived at the hanger, center is my 1981 Cessna 172P, front left is my 1942 Ford GPW that awaits restoration, rear left is my Locost frame up on the build table (you can easily see the roll bar, between the GPW and the 172 is a 1981 Ski-doo. My wife calls this my "toy box".

So, the parts of my Locost are on two sides of a classic airplane....do I get double points?

Challenge -> a photo of a person trying to enter or exit a Locost that has a roof on it and/or doors. I've seen one old picture of this with an original 7 and a guy that looks to be about 7' tall trying to get into it with the roof up and it makes me grin!

Surprised this hasn't come up yet, a Seven in the snow; preferably being driven.

This is how to drive a Seven in the snow on the other side of the pond.
Sevens do not work well in the snow. Don't ask how I know! Dave W

That photo alone is worth it's own thread and audience-submitted captions. :cheers:

To steal one from a very old Road & Track picture caption, "Good tires, says Bob as he casually examines the tail end of his Seven sticking out of the bush, but certainly not great tires."

I know this is pretty old, but I'm bored at work and haven't seen this thread before. Besides, this photo challenges look kind of fun. Maybe with more cars around it will get more submissions now. In the hopes of getting it going again, here's an old picture of my locost in the snow. It wasn't running yet, but it was a roller with a complete drive train and steering.

It's getting cold up here in the north already, so how about a picture of a locost with a palm tree or a beach?

Here's a palm tree. How about a Locost in the rain?
