Been out in the mountains..the Guadalupes, which run from far West Texas up into New Mexico and are the remnants of an ancient reef, then up into the Sacramentos ( Cloudcroft, Ruidoso ), then on up into the Sangre de Cristos range north of Santa Fe...some of the most splendid and dramtic scenery in the US...the culture out there is as interesting as the geography..three layers..the indigenous Pueblan peoples, then Spanish civilization imposed on that, then our gringo culture on top of that...spent most of three weeks without not only an inter-net connection but most of the time beyond cell phone range...Hallelujah..for those of you who've forgotten, life is not only possible under those circumstances, it's perfectly pleasant and strangely liberating...

I swear I did not send that twice! The page suddenly did some really weird 'flips' and disappeared and when it came back, the dupe appeared...

Hey, welcome back, Patito! Whare have you been? I have been away, too, and some folks thought we had run away together, heh. A Bouts has been forlorn because he had no sparring partner and we all missed your humour... Good to visit the loonie bin again, eh?

...make that 'where' instead of 'whare'.

Looks like about a '48 or '49 Cochino Lento, built by Renault-Espania for export to Mexico. The engine turned out to be woefully inadequate for the steep, mountainous terrain for which it was intended since the engine had only three cylinders: the third cylinder burned the un-combusted hydrocarbons in the exhaust of the first two cylinders. Only a handful of CD's, as they were called, are still known to exist, though a few have been carefully and lovingly restored and may be seen from time to time along the streets of the wealthier neighborhoods of the larger Mexican cities.

Great photo - happy dogs. :) Anyone recognize the manufacturer and model of the car?
