Striped Tomato

Striped Tomato 

Continuing my Americans Abroad theme, this time of a replica  of the infamous Ford Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch, which was affectionately known as the "Striped Tomato".  As a kid growing up, this was one of the cars we used to dream about, and was as much a leading character of the hit TV show as were the main stars Starsky, Hutch and Huggy Bear.

This photo was taken about 2 years ago at Keith Parrington  XJ Restorations workshop here in Eastbourne.  I think I fell a little in love with this tidy looking XJ that Keith and his team had just finished restoring. No glitz, no glamour here, just refined elegant retro style. Please note I have a page dedicated on my website to Keith and his restoration business here.

A rare square format photo in my photostream (thank you Instagram for showing me the way here. I am ever so in love with this style of Mercedes, and maybe it has something to do with childhood, and these being the epitome of success and affluence, not that affluence is necessarily something that drives me. However, there is something about Mercedes Benz from the 1970’s and 1980’s that really still appeals, and in my opinion these are still good looking cars, and love when opportunity presents them to my lens.
