    Default Buttercup?????

    I was just going through my picture files, and I came across this very curious pic of a DS that bears a number plate VERY similar to Bob's car, with the same foglight mounting bar, but I have to say it looks nothing like it did in paris, or outside my appartment the other night!!!!
    Is this the same car, or have the plates been changed?? john s

    Just while we are on DSs, we used to call them Sharks in my old country.

    That is the same car. Buttercup has a second skin, which as you can see is covered in genuine ROBRI accessories (well a girl must have her accessories!). The pics you have there are from Cit In 2003 in Qld (see more pics here)

    She was in black while her 1st skin was off being resprayed prior to going "abroad".

    She's a very tricky girl

    This is 'Blackcup', Buttercup's ugly twin sister. And just like in the melodramas, you never see them together. I wonder why?

    PS come to Dubbo and see Buttercup and her younger (by 2 years) sister, wearing identical outfits.

    I reckon that it is only the last front DSs that deserve to be called sharks. That last nose is just so aggressive. The earlier single headlight DSs (whether the first or second version) look so much more benign and friendly that to me they cannot be called sharks.

    Agreed. Kermit comes to mind - the ultimate frog in my book.

    Already booked and paid for, and I'm really looking foreward to it! Besides, I want to explore some of the places I didn't have time for last time I was in Oz. I can tell you, bob will need to give buttercup a very thorough clean, as it's covered in road salt at the moment, really filthy! john s
