      I'm a sucker for a good POV shot...

      I would love to have a thread dedicated to some good Point Of View interior shots from the drivers seat.

      I'm sure I am not the only person to get satisfaction from cockpit view shots of cars to help imagine myself behind the wheel. I am casually car hunting at the moment and I keep finding myself staring at drivers POV pictures of perspective cars I am looking into. How I feel about a cockpit is usually a make or break part of my car shopping experience.


      So TCL members, lets see some that rub you the right way! Anything from average vehicles to classics and sports cars.

      Here is one of my old wrx that I particularly loved (taken with a potato)

      Really old pics of the drive home after a trip to Dubuque in early January, note the air and coolant temps! This is within a half-hour of leaving and going east through/past Galena, there are more pics on my Photobucket. In the last picture the barn looks like that because it got ripped in half by a tornado

      It would've been better had they been the same color beige, but I think it works.

      How about shuttling backcountry skiers up Berthoud Pass?




      Dodge Ram view of Winter Park.




      Crappy old beat a$$ 986 Boxster




      MK2 GTI




      MK1 TT




      EZ GO




      Sh*tty Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton




      Retired Vietnam era Huey converted for commercial use.




      MK6 Golf R, dont mind what you can see through the windshield.

      It's better to have loved and lost I guess. Sad to have sold it, but it helped me through my career change. Depending on how a few things shake out, I'll be back with something fun hopefully sooner than later.
