Earlier this year I bought my first “modern classic” car – a 1980 Chrysler GH Scorpion, designed by Mitsubishi and built in Adelaide, Australia. As I’m quickly discovering, old car ownership can be a joyous thing, tempered by pockets of sorrows – like the day it broke down recently while on my way to visit friends interstate. Alas, the car stayed where it was while I took a borrowed car on that journey, so the anticipation of showing her off to my friends was curtailed. Never mind, there will be more opportunities.
This photo was taken the day I shot the photos of a shearing shed; as I got back in the driver’s seat, I was momentarily arrested by the view through the window and behind the car.
