Damn, I was gonna say mine. It's over there <<<

Doesn't fit much in the boot, I have to put my tripod behind the seat unless I leave the spare at home, but it's fun to drive!

I had to move to the Caribbean and bust my ass for a while.

Oh you poor thing - living in the Caribbean, taking photos for a living, and earning enough to buy yourself an S-type - your life must suck! ;-)a

On a serious note, I was just saying to someone the other day how much I love the whole retro front end Ford/Volvo/Jag/Whateve​r they call themselves these days have going on the S-type - very reminiscent of their earlier cars. Plus it probably has a kick-arse amount of room in the boot, right?

Actually the boot is a little small. Fancy rear suspension and a 70 litre tank get in the way.

Working 90 hours a week in 120f heat with a serious case of tennis elbow with cockroaches and a wife going nuts wasn't exactly "fun". but parts of it was.

90 hours - I can do that.

120o - bring it on.

Cockroaches - sorry buddy, you're on your own now! I can't stand them. :eek:

My "photog" ride is fine... A F-350 crew cab dually that holds everything I need to carry plus some. And it runs on used veggie oil.

I'm fairly happy with my current toy as far as being photographer friendly...lots of room for gear, easily accessible and not too bad at the gas pump.
