Any of you seen one of these?  I inherited from my father and used it in my 356A for years.  Then I had my pal QC restore it a couple of years ago.  He left were I "fixed" the handle with a pipe cleaner.  Ha, ha, ha!

That's Madeline Smith. Years ago, I had a booth at a memorabilia show in Birmingham (UK), and she had a booth next to ours. She was selling autographed pictures from her appearances in Hammer horror movies and the like. She was very polite.

 

You "knuckleheads" are absolutely right on! That is Madeline Smith and/but her "particulars" are as follows: Born in England 8/2/1949 and at the height of her movie "career" was 5'5'' tall, weighed 119 lbs., and her cup size (NOT tea!) was 38E.  Yes, her being "very polite" would have been very nice, but if she looked then as she does in this photo...well, I'm surprised your sense of hearing wasn't temporarily placed "out-of-order" by your sense of sight! 

Here she is being "very polite," I'm sure, with Roger Moore (James Bond) in Live And Let Die (1973). Does this still make you think of a 356?

For fun, I was going to find a picture of an old lady to joke that she looked like that then but looks like this now......

Life advice, don't Google slutty grandma.

Yes.  The Komenda design is the only truly female sports car.  The fenders are breasts, the bonnet the belly, you figure out the ass!

Don't tell Cory Drake that. He swears his car is all boy LOL!

I made my own tool kit by looking through all the tools in my shop and realizing a bunch were from a 356 tool bag.  The hammer I added a decal to.  Certainly saved a bunch of money.

Very cool. Some of us love stuff like that. Is there a pouch for the cue ball? I used a croquet ball as a flanging tool for my Spyder build; wouldn't think to keep it in a kit back for roadside contingencies but then I don't have half your roadtrip experience.

Remember Sean Penn in "Bad Boys" with the pillowcase full of soda cans?

That cue ball could be a formidable weapon, with a spare unused tube sock LOL!

I don't think so. Not trying to look like Robin, not gay. But he has a silver Speedster with dual Spyder-type helmet fairings on a turtle-back tonneau.

And black paint "darts" around the headlights. To me, it looks like Cleopatra eyes. I think most cars evoke a certain femininity, especially shapely convertibles. And definitely of the 356 variety. Since his is "all boy", this strikes me as funny.

And it's Cory, no "e". If you come down to Carlisle you'll meet a bunch of us characters in May. We absolutely revel in busting each others stones. I have a white Spyder with red seats and red darts. He likes to call mine an ambulance. And so it goes.........

If Cory is gay or not gay would hardly affect him being a great guy.  Weapons?  You mean he would shoot someone who thought he was gay?  Sounds a bit overbearing, doesn't it?  Is he on this forum?

Cory was on this forum before it was this forum. He's at Carlisle every year, and most of us know him and he knows us. The thing is, lots of relationships here can be measured in decades. He's stayed in my home a few times over the years, and we talk on the phone at least once a week. I drove down to St. Louis for his wedding.

The dude was in the military for about 20-ish years, and saw action in pretty much every hot, warm, and lukewarm spot on the globe. When there wasn't any action, he'd do his best to make some. He'd do anything for a friend-- ANYTHING-- but if you push is buttons, he wouldn't hesitate to go all PTSD on you. He's a fireman now, and Jeni has calmed most of the storms, but it's still a good idea not to make sudden movements in his peripheral field of vision.

His car is a reflection of all of that. Elemental, and yet really complex. Rough in a lot of ways, but elegant in form and function. There's always a hint of violence, controlled or otherwise. It's fast, loud, and a ticket waiting to be written. Cory usually drives it like a puppy-dog, but sometimes he lets the Rottweiler out. And that car is a dog who can bite. It's one of a kind, and one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

There was a change of format here a few years ago (10 maybe?), and Cory lost a bunch of pictures he was archiving here. He's still salty about it so he doesn't hang out as much. Pity, that.

He's over on FB though. Look for the bald guy with the Hawaiian shirt, smoking a Clint Eastwood cigarillo. Lately he's into old bicycles. I'd approach without making eye contact, palms out, fingers spread. We'll see if he likes you.

If he does, you've got a friend for life.

Your goal is constantly to stir crap and come up with this stuff.....sooner than later that tool kit may be the tools needed to extract a well placed boot.
