I like your style.

I always joked that if I ever owned an appropriately-blue car, I'd get "TARDIS" as a custom plate.

I still have to take some glamor shots of my Sonic Blue 5-Door, so I swiped an FF image... I hope nobody minds...

Instead of a "My Other Car is a TARDIS" license plate frame, I'm looking for a St. John's Ambulance seal... ;-)

Nearly a year in and i still get strangers asking me about my car:"What kind of car is that?" "What is that color called"..
Great.

Nice images, Ron. I wanted to fine somewhere as picturesque as the previous posters, what with all the pretty scenery, but all I could come up with was a little park on Lake Erie. The iPhone camera just doesn't do it justice, either. I'll have to find a better location along the lake and pull out my 450D. Here's one from the iPhone, right after she had a bath (this morning).

I'm pretty fortunate to be where I'm at since were right at the foothills and that location is just a few minutes away and Red Rocks park is about 10 minutes away.

Congrats. Even without the sport package I still think it is a really fun car to drive. Did you get the manual or the dct?

Gorgeous color. I'd probably have mine in this paint if I couldn't have my red candy. Maybe someday I'll have a Mustang in this color. Enjoy your car, and definitely get out that Canon!
