    Very interesting photo montage

    I'm fascinated by people who keep cars forever since I can't seem to keep one for more than 6 months... :P

    A photographer gathered several people who bought their cars new and still had them 20-30 years later. He took photos of them how they look now and put them side-by-side with old snapshots for a nice comparison...

    I found this very fascinating. What do you think? 8)

    Very cool idea. I'm impressed that half of those cars are still running, especially the Fiat Ritmo/Strada.

    That's great! I like my current batch of cars, and I know I'll have my x7 until it get's forcibly taken away from me, lol. Kinda want to do something similar, but with a pic every year for as long as I have it in the same pose and at the same spot, might be fun .

    Damn! I'm one of those Keep It Forever people, but I never had the bright idea to take a photo WITH the car. :roll:

    The series is awesome, though. A real heartstring tugger.

    Nice, DF! Gotta wonder why that one eye-talian gentleman opted for a 1970 Caddy Eldo tho :? .
