A weekend of petrochemical bliss (with some electrons thrown in for good measure)

This weekend was the annual Boston Cup, a fabulous auto show on the Boston Common.  As well, it was culmination of National Drive Electric Week. It was, in other words, a celebration of four wheels -- the gas guzzling kind as well as the electron munching kind -- and featured cars ... all kinds of cars ...



There were short ones 




and fat ones 




and skinny ones 




and old ones 




and new ones.




There were orange ones 




and yellow ones 




and red ones 




and blue ones.




There were electric ones 





and mechanical ones




and expensive ones




and even more expensive ones.




There were some you’d park in a field to smoke some herb in




and some that go really fast




and others that go really slow.




There was one made by some MIT students




and one with two badges on its hood. It turns out this one belonged to rock and roller J. Geils.




There were even some two-wheeled ones.



For the petrol-head, and the electron-head, it was a weekend of paradisiacal bliss.
