Guys, have a break!

Let's get together here to talk nonsense, smoke a cigarette, have a laugh, etc.
Talk about anything other than coachbuilding and cars.

Enjoy!

Three years and I'm still danger of turning into a serial murderer.

Well, sometimes.

I know the feeling and admire your strength for the past three years and the many more to come.
I still say: "I quit tomorrow." ;)

Larger

I had the good fortune to work at the United Nations HQ for two years in the mid-'80's,
doing engineering for their new phone system. Having an "all-access pass",
I discovered one day that the the door to the roof of the Secretariat
Building was open, looking out on this view of Manhattan.

There are oodles of pix of the famous NYC skyline, but none with the incredible
Chrysler Building front & center. Because of its distance from the Empire
State Building, it even looks taller! In this 1986 shot, the brown box
with the glass skylight in the foreground is the Ford Foundation
(with its large, forest-like atrium, a great space to spend time in),
and the major thoroughfare at left is fabled 42nd Street.

This view can never be replicated, due to buildings that have since altered
the skyline, lessening the Chrysler's visual impact. As true devotees of
All Things in Design, what unique views do other CoachBuilders have?

Hey guys, one day with a cut-off internet connection, and what do I find next? Here are you sharing oportos, cohibas and photographs!
Wasn't it a coachbuild forum? Back to work! :lol:
Hard work lately, it took me two hours to update myself!
I come from cutting a damn branch of a pine in my garden that threated my roof (a mediterranan pine type) and I'm almost dead. It feels nice to relax, having a cup of wine and smoke a cigarrette (now that my wife is not around. This is really a nightmare. Let's forget it).
Great view Tom! And great chance to get it...

Wow! That's quite some view!

Mine is a bit more tranquil.
