Dennis, Dennis, Dennis...

what's with this "holier than thou" attitude all of a sudden?

Did you finally manage to fuck some kind of higher life form than a sheep?

Latex paint is not a form of contraception so don't go dipping your pee pee in there.

Absence of B-pillar in the Element precluded the possibility of installing a skylight in a more traditional location -- above and somewhat behind front row seats.

Element's skylight pops off completely and carry tall items sticking through the opening - look for some owners carrying Christmas trees that way come Holidays.

Your van thing is a crappy replacement for your 560 from any perspective, and your hanging around here from now will just further dilute your interest value.

Nothing about your posts was ever perfect (let alone a foil for anything).They were more about some puffed up self aggrandizement (the true feature of any long lasting OT contributor btw....ok, as you well know).
You are a snipey poofey shit that deserves a sad immediate future of indecision over which Honda sunglasses suit your drivers seat armrest reflection.
Other than that, you're not a bad bloke (for an expat) - just don't take my word for that as Gospel though.......

Sorry to burst your bubble but you are not Keri Hulme, not even a comedic parody of one.

Gotta stop inhaling that paint thinner. Please look after yourself and wear a respirator if you're dealing with oil-based paints.

Keri is (was?) a living defective... but a talented writer - more up your alley I agree for an imaginative introvert and fantasy/sanity nutter.
Neither faux finishes nor faux finishers cut the mustard down this way - just returning an equally obvious hint.

Ahh cmon, if craftsmen in NZ had the technology to shape metal into more than just pick-axes and pig iron locomotive parts you'd be driving a Christchurch LaBaron.

Ya know, the Vibe, the xB and the Element contest regularly for the "most ugly vehicle in America" title...but that's actually a very pleasing angle for that shot.

Tall, short wheelbase cars are very common in Europe and in Japan. I used to own a metallic green bicycle when I was a kid. Only when I brought it to the US did people say it's an ugly color for a bicycle. Since then, I have been aware of this particularly conservative view on design in the US - that automobiles should look the certain way and bicycles ought to be painted in certain color (though regarding bicycle paint jobs, I now see neon pink, fuscha, and acid green so things a looking better).

I freely admit that Element is no beauty, but it clearly manifests its functionality which I like. It's like the C130 transporter and it hauls stuff, not like the sexy 727s of bygone era.
