Cohort Outtake: Mitsubishi Colt Being Attacked by Giant Bird

This is a great shot, posted by Pikesta at the Cohort. Not only are these Galant Sigma/Colts now gone from our streets here in Eugene, but the backdrop is of course wonderful. And it instantly reminded me of a shot I made some eight years ago here.

This was a storage lot for a seller-repair shop for vintage Mercedes diesels, at the height of the bio-diesel boom. Back then we had two sales lots selling nothing but W123s and a few W126 diesels, undoubtedly plucked from California’s vast trove at the time. Where have they all gone? Eight years seems like just yesterday; or maybe not, actually.
