Having picked up a copy of AM Radio’s lovely roadster (Michele and Chestnut both wrote up the event), I naturally wanted to drive it around. I was frustrated on one racetrack, designed more for puny go-karts than big muscular roadsters that want lots of room to devour. Then Michele suggested the big empty salt-flats of (appropriately enough!) an AM Radio build.
Here I am, having just rezzed the roadster. Does it not go beautifully with the setting and the sky?
(Click through to flickr on all of these for access to larger sizes etc.)
Michele got hers out as well. They were different colors!
We didn’t figure out until later that there’s a dashboard control that lets the driver instantly recolor the car. Another advantage of SL! That, and harmless crashes. :)
Here’s roughly the same picture with the HUD showing. (The roadster includes a lovely HUD dashboard, that also puts the world in a very AM-Radio soft light.)
Tearing happily around the salt flats:
(And yeah, I was by coincidence wearing a dress shirt and vest that went very nicely with the overall ambiance.)
Parked out by AM’s 1912 Spring Racer airplane, available for a mere 700L (I bought one):

AM Radio’s sense of design is amazing. These pictures just take themselves. :)
