Cars as Art?

From today's BBC R4 evening news Here is a link to Stephen Bayley (cultural commentator) arguing that cars can be art and Sarah Thornton (art critic) arguing the opposite, using a Ferrari 250 California as an example.

Re: Forum Software Upgrade

The one I have been using gives a 500 pixel wide photo that can be clicked on and increased to 1028 pixels wide. Is anybody actually clicking on them? If not, I will make my life easier and switch to Tom & Josh's way. Tom, The detail in your large photos is great and very much worth the effort. I'm...
