Looks like Vasquez Rocks, in southern California.  Location for more than a few films and TV shows (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_productions_using_the_Vasquez_Rocks_as_a_filming_location).  When I was in the cub scouts (or boy scouts?) we would go camping there.

I was pretty sure that's Hidden Valley out in Joshua Tree, but I could very easily be wrong. My Gf back in the day had a 5 acre homestead in JT and a 62 Jeep Wagoneer. We spent a lot of lost weekends out there.

ETA... never mind, wrong location...

Yes a lot of the old original Mini's and their variants went down under.  I imported one fairly rare 998 Mini Cooper back from Oz 20 years ago, and two from the UK at the same time.

Talk about an "Oh Shit" moment. 

Been there, but mine had a banana seat and the dirt berm is a couple of cinder blocks and a 2x6...  Ended the same way I suppose...  LOL

New York? Looks like the Subway scene setting from Ghostbusters 2.FB_IMG_1629347201901.jpg

Guastavino tile vaults are absolutely gorgeous and structurally ingenious.  Built without formwork.

Correct. Great story, I hadn't heard that one. We just had a great weekend away in Adelaide, so plenty of SA jokes. Don was one of those great pollies from the 70's that helped transformed Australia from plain white bread to the vibrant modern country it is today.

Oh and that car - that photo is pretty much exactly my first car! :lol:

There are some legendary riders from the past.  Hobot has excelled in bringing them to life in pictures.  Thanks Hobot.
