Hi...

Just put more of the popular Shado Moonbase UFO series pictures and some additional ones from outside of the show. Sorry if I've put doubles of any of them...

One of the pictures shows(I think) a Porsche 914. I had a second hand 914 in the 80s. I was so excited I had a Porsche..it was around $2000...I was s real hot mama, or do I thought...one day on the way to work the engine caught fire...all I could do was stand away from it and watch it burn...later I was told that happened a lot. But it was fun while I had it!

Oh-My-Giddy-Aunt! What an experience. The Porsche must have been a dream to have and to own - until it caught fire! Drat! Bet the Top Gear team (the real ones not the sloppy mob that have taken over - always detested that perv Chris Evans) would have delighted in lounging round in your dream auto, Mae. That would have been a fair few dollars to fork out in the 80s... Good on you... You've lived - and simply existed. Unfortunately I passed on my dream Jaguar XK 8 (I always imagine we are custodians of such motoring pleasures and now owners) this summer past. A 4.2 V8 that roared with the best of them, when you accidentally 'pressed' the kick-down rocket SPORT mode. My neck still suffers now.. But we don't mind these injuries, do we Mae??? We just drove by the seat of our pants.
I'll have to take a peek at this image... I know they had a couple specials for the series.

One of my former bosses always always drove a Jag...back then it was the xke(?)...he was a big flirt and told me that a real lady drove a Jag....as I remember his was in the shop along time. When my husband came home from Vietnam Nam he bought an Austin Healy Sprite. Gawd! I could barely fit in the seat and never learned to drive it.
A few years back I slipped on some ice and broke my ankle..,almost a compound fracture and wound up at home for over a month. Channel surfing I ran across the British show Wheeler Dealers and watched a marathon on a cable channel. Great fun and loved Ed Chyna

Now that I’m an old broad I drive a Honda with all the safety features but I have to admit I’m still learning all the gizmos!

Just looked at the XKEs... needed to scrap my tongue off the carpet. Classic cars with the curves of beautiful women. Jags are always a she... That was another classic collectable car: The Sprite. Crikey! Nam, heh! Oddly enough, my old man who was meant to be in the merchant navy but was somehow with the British special forces in those way back communist insurrection places/jungles with the Malaya Scouts (gawd they had to deal with some shit - you wanna see the pictures) apparently ended up in Nam having fisty-cuffs alongside the Yanks. Last we ever heard (or didn't heard) of him!!!
Wheeler Dealers is pretty OK too! Although the noisy sod in it looks like he needs a bash! :D (Big Grin) 
Went out trying new cars of the future (greenish-boring) over past month or so... Saw some nice ones until the financial advisor told me quite abruptly: No new cars!!! Year old or nothing!!! :o (Eek)

It IS a great theme tune though! I don't think it has dated much in its sci fi context - but I would gladly be corrected!!! I can see those boxed sets flying off the shelves...:D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin)  I love trying to beat out the tune on my electric guitar with numerous pedals selected - at least it keeps the cats away!!! :o (Eek)
