Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance (I)


Friday 19 September, 2014 by Uncle Spike

This week’s first entry from me for the Weekly Photo Challenge is my old car. “Ellie” is 26 years old, has almost hit 300,000 km, and is my farm workhorse/tractor here in southern Turkey, as well as being the family shopping car, school run minibus, and the vehicle of choice for our mountain tracks. She is the embodiment of ‘endurance’ around this farm 🙂

Hope you enjoy this entry.

    26 years old and still running … pretty amazing after seeing the log filled trunk and back seat! Definitely endurance; thanks for the smile and the very interesting interpretation of the challenge.

  5. My goodness. And there was me thinking I abused my car when I moved house and couldn’t see out of any windows apart from the windscreen and driver’s window, or use any mirrors other than the wing one on the driver’s door.

    I wonder how many creepy-crawlies you’re releasing into your car along with that wood!


  6. Now that’s truly testing the limits of endurance. I hope she still has miles to go before she sleeps.

  14. Long may she endure! We’ve had some vehicles that endured not only long but through all sorts of labor and they are/were greatly appreciated.
