Big Bear is a cool place to spend a long weekend

in the summer

no way I’m going up there at this time of year

I hate snow

Scenes on Sunday # 10

This Sunday I offer you some more ‘scape pictures from my library.  ‘scape pictures?  Seascapes, cloudscapes, landscapes, cityscapes, roadscapes, or pictures of a lake in Big Bear….

All these shots were taken with a compact LUMIX Panasonic DMC-AS3 camera.  This camera is so lightweight, small, and smart that it’s good  for taking everywhere.

2015 Mustang

It’s not a sports car.

P1010890

Real sports cars don’t have wooly power steering, air conditioning, four seats and a decent boot, (trunk).  However, all 3 versions of the Mustang come with more than 300 bhp, and reasonable independent suspension. The downside is there almost two tonnes to lug around, (3705 lbs), most of which is sitting over the front wheels.

In comparison a Porsche 911 has around 400 bhp and weighs around 3,300 lbs, (still a porker, still with all of the weight behind the rear wheels).

P1020029The Mustang isn’t a small car ~ there is wasted space all over the place.  For example there is no spare as standard, but there is an appropriate well in the boot.

The six speed auto-box is slick, but don’t bother with the ‘sport’ setting.

P1020195The suspension is forgiving, but it didn’t encourage me to hustle it through the bends on the 6,000 foot drop down from Big Bear.

A Porsche will set one back around $84,000.  You can buy a Mustang for $33,000.  Men would buy a Mustang.  Wankers buy a Porsche.  Only real men would buy a 7.
