As you know in a major metro area driving and commuting is not a pleasant undertaking; we had to pick up a car and took the "back roads" and an additional 30 minutes to reach our destination. Occasionally taking a slower drive and appreciating the sites is a good change of pace.
On the return, we initially caught a glimpse and then drove by a new "premium economy" car (we will not mention the make) on the 401, in the flow of traffic its lost among all the other vehicles with at best limited street presence.

Maserati starts celebrating its 100 anniversary this month, as you can imagine it will go on all year for 2014...the fork in the logo is a "tridente".
Mustang will be 50 years old...think about this Mustang launched 50 years ago...look at this photo of a 1965 Mustang and suddenly it all starts to "sink in".
The priceless lesson from Nelson Mandela is that "You can..."
Our usual old race cars from the East African Safari Classic, a bit of water, dust, mud, and superb photography.
