Nerdvana: Ian and Dad photographing the rear view camera display, in our rental Inifinity 3.0 litre sedan. With distance markers *and* projected path indicated! IMG_3673

Thanks for the faves, Beetlebomb and Ian!

 

My own image of the display is one before this one. I think thats reverse of the order I shot them in....

 

We're really very nive people, we clean up well, and this Infiniti had the lateset 2019 console electronics, 3-5 years newer than our fleet (Jeann and I have a 2010 Yaris and a 2014 Civic). Kelly and Ian have a VW and a Honda Pilot,

Dad and Marian have two Acuras or something equivalent.)

 

Anyway, as they wrote it in Tropic Thunder, this is a picture of two dudes taking pictures of their rental-car display with their mobile phones. One dude is looking at his phone display to frame a picture of the car display. The other is looking at his phone to make sure he likes his picture of the car display. And then I'll take a picture of the car display using my phone... As I said, nerdvana.

 

Wouldn't you love to send this image and caption back in time to a cross section of automotive engineers, managers, and reporters, world wide, in, oh, 1968? You could helpfully add that the Infiniti brand is the upscale (Oldsmobile/Buick or Lincoln/Mercury) of the Nissan company, which is the real name of the people who are starting to sell Datsun pickup trucks, soon, in the USA.

 

Note headlights are reflecting off the concrete wall of the underground parking garage...
