Sandy Paws and I agree: its simple, perfectly sculptured curves make this arguably THE most stylistically beautiful production-car ever built.

We had the privilege of absorbing the awesomeness of several of these classics at the “Brits on the Beach” car show in Ocean Grove, NJ recently.

The car was produced in three major series, from 1961 to 1975, and available in the roadster, or 2+2 coupe.

The view is awesome.

Across the Hudson River, midtown and north. Note the new and very tall  “residential” skyscrapers now beginning to dominate the skyline to the left.

Cruise ships berth right against Manhattan, as seen from Hamilton Park.

A view slightly south: the Chrysler Building, left; Times Square area buried within, just to its right; and the Empire State Building.

Four miles down-river stands the Freedom Tower.

This wide view shows the tower in lower Manhattan; Jersey City to the right; and lower pathways and view spots in the park (foreground.) Jeanne is talking to a friend, Linda, on the bench.

Looking down river with my telephoto lens, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge is almost 12 miles to the south. Just beyond and left (out of sight,) the Atlantic Ocean.

It was a nice day for a visit to this special little place.

As part of a weather front ahead of thunder and lightning, the sea gull was also a bit mystified. >

I watched curiously to see if a flying saucer or other extra-terrestrial visitor would emerge from the turmoil. >

Was the shadow on the flag an ominous sign? >
