Hey, no fair -- y'all did this while I was away!

Great car and great pics, Richard!

Actually I was in Aruba at the time, which I understand is sort of Dutch, right? I think a lot of people were speaking Dutch, when they weren't speaking "papiamento."

By the way -- what water is that in the background?

In Aruba they do speak a kind of Dutch dialect.

The water you see in the back the North Sea, in front of the port of Rotterdam

In fact I do have some more :D.....

Here's my cars galery on PBASE
Nice collection!
Just to make sure everybody will realize...... (I found out by accident) -- there's a lot more than what you see on the first screen. You can get more pics of each car by clicking on it, then you can enlarge each of those by clicking on them.

Question about the Peugeot 206 RC: I see that it's a TINY car, also that it isn't a hard-core sports car or anything like that. It's a practical car, a little hatchback (right?). I remember that when Peugeot was selling in the U.S., their cars were considered very high quality and great "driver's cars" (although they broke down all the time :donno: but let's ignore that :D ). So, I wonder, are those little Peugeots extremely good tiny cars, or are they tiny cars that are just like any other tiny car? In North America, there never seem to be any GREAT tiny "regular" cars. The cars might be good, but they're not great. (We might say that the Mini is an exception.)

That's one reason I'm looking forward very much to the BMW 1-series, although I don't think those cars will be "tiny." (And it remains to be seen if they're "great.")

Here in Europe the 206 isn't really a 'tiny' car, there are cars that are much smaller :p . Here in the Netherlands the 206 is one of the top sellers. The quality of these Peugeots is average. The blue one in the pictures is my wife's 206 GTi its al little over three year old now and it never had problems. Both the GTi and the RC are real drivers cars, they are quite small but have a lot of power ( 138 hp for the GTi and 177 hp for the RC) which makes them quite fast. On the road these are great, althoug they can be a bit tricky in fast corners :D

Anyone like the Mondeo but me? I didn't think so.
Well, it looks great (tried to post the image but it didn't work), but I don't know the car at all. I imagine not too many people do.

The previous generation Mondeo was what we got in the US as the Contour. I had one in SVT form that was OK. It handles similar to our TSX, but the interior and quality just sucked. No comparison. I imagine this Mondeo uses the same chassis, but I was surprised how good it looked, including the interior (despite the red seats). Isn't it funny that Ford (and all American manufacturers) refuse to go with things that are standard overseas. Like the navigation system. It's popular everywhere, but my guess if Ford would charge something like $2500 for it and it wouldn't work but about half the time.

And they wonder why their loyal customers (owned something like 17 Fords over the years) have jumped ship to Honda and Toyota.

Well, what about Honda? :D
If they had brought the Euro Accord over here, we wouldn't have had to wait for the TSX.

(Mostly just kidding. There really are differences, and I think they're important.)

We actually have a Ford Contour in the family. Unfortunately it's completely dead. :rolling_e
