I am pretty sure I saw a DB12 out on the road.

Love that color!  Like to have a Ridgeline in that with a brown interior.

Wait, a RHD Corvette?  I believe the gas filler is on the driver's side.

The side of the car the steering wheel is located is not what I noticed in that pic wink

Can you ID this cannon?  Size suggests a sea coast weapon, to me, the OD decor suggests it's French.  Thoughts?

I don't have any clue but google image search sez they are at Gripsholm Castle.  There are a lot more pix of 'em out there, and some info which is only partially conflicting.

https://www.reddit.com/r/ArtefactPorn/comments/nm8yxj/cannon_named_wolf_used_in_livonian_wars_15581583/

Translated description seems authoritative but IDK if it is really

Galten and Suggan are among the more famous canons in Sweden. The inscriptions on the cannons indicate that their original name was "The Wolf" and that the larger cannon was cast in 1579 and the smaller in 1577.

It is uncertain which cannon was captured when but in 1581 Pontus De la Gardie took one at Narva and the other was taken by Evert Horn in 1612 at Ivangorod.

In 1623, both cannons were brought out to Gripsholm castle, where they now stand in the castle grounds.

My favourite car at the Cruise-In this morning. Home built tube chassis, turbo Coyote set back 12", 4 link rear, huge brakes. Built, not bought.

Some sailplanes use this for the wheel brake.  Your left hand is busy with the spoilers, feet are flapping the rudder, so this is soooo much easier.

Hard to pick up, it's just in front of the stick.

Well no, but I sure do like the slicker late model version that cruises at 124 mph!
