TPKoC (The Pirate King of Cars) and TPPoC (The Pirate Price of Cars – age 10) journeyed out to Pennsylvania to see Super Cars.
Unfortunately, there is a proper horde of children at the old Pirate Ship and the journey didn’t begin until late. Arriving at 2PM for a car show that ends at 4PM isn’t optimal. Alast, hopes to see the elusive Bugatti Veyron have been dashed, yet there was still plenty to be seen. Plenty that can’t be seen on a daily basis. Doing things and seeing things that you don’t see on a daily basis is the heart of being a pirate.
Driver’s were even getting in to their cars and driving away as we arrived. Twin Lotus supercar’s left as we arrived. Well, a supercar TPKoC could potentially afford isn’t really a supercar. Supercars should be like supermodels – utterly fascinating to look at and utterly unattainable.
$5 fee is certainly reasonable. We even bought a t-shirt. TPKoC hopes that the monies aren’t being taken by erm, pirates, and go to good causes.
TPKoC and TPPoC spent about an hour looking at the last of the Super Cars and taking pictures. TPPoC will be making his own post with his own pictures and thoughts sometime soon!
We then took in some of the sights at the Warminster park, including a 2+ mile trail. There was a large centrifuge there that apparently would still astronauts out of ordinary human beings. A number of signs about the solar system and one of the largest play grounds we’ve ever seen.
In another bit of the parking lot we saw a bloke attempting to windsurf on roller blades. It wasn’t going so well while we were there.
This area, which turns out to be the birthplace of the steamboat, is very picturesque and seems like a nice area to hang out.
Enjoy the pictures!
Taking Motorcycles to a Car show – of course! Wish I could have done that!
Hot MB 1
Hot MB 2
Hot MB 3 – perhaps they learned a thing or two when they were partnered with Chrysler – about great looking vehicles.

Someone put this poor Ferrari out to Pasture
Why, why am I on the grass!
Am I smiling
Only Lambo we were in time to see
What the heck is this!?
Why do I have such a big butt?
McLaren – why do they have to always leave a door open. It just ruins the lines. At least the artist knew this when he painted it.
The wave of the future? Make a mundane car your unique vision.
It is such a good job, I left the advertising visible. Maybe when TPKoC buys the lit motors C-1 – it will be wrapped!
Always my favorite Honda
But Honda could have used a bit of class when designing the engine. Looks like it is a Civic Engine.
GT 40 !!!
Somebody close me!!!
I look like a regular car, but I can go like snot out of a child
M3 with a hot paint job
Oldie but a goodie, but…
FR-S – a $25K car that has a sticker of $30K with dealer add-ons. TPKoC loves this car, but it should be stock – and let the owner decide what aftermarket items they want
I want to be a Porsche
Ahhh, this is awesome. Even if – the great god Clarkson says it has no soul!
Now, Honda, this is how you do an engine. This doesn’t look like it came out of a VW.
Still wants to be a Porsche
Wants to be a Porsche – oh wait it is a Porsche. Too bad you can’t take the engine out of this and put it in the VW.
Poor form! It is an automatic! It should be illegal to buy a sports car without a manual transmission. You buy it, and you show the world you know how to drive it.
Would love to capture video of this driving down the road
Wonder if this has manual steering – might be a bit tough to get through the twisties.
Fastest car to be driven on public highways.
And it has got the documentation to prove it.
Once, TPKoC was a part of this part of the bigger part of the military.
I’ve got big eyes!
Am I smiling? Bet you would if you got to drive me…
Big Brakes, baby.
Look at my buttocks!
Something about this car is great, but this angle, it looks like they took a regular car and glued on some sleeker bits on the front.
Da Big Bird.
I’ve got a big but, oh yeah, but nothing compared to that white car.
