The TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008) is quite a controversial lens. I just had to get one to find out for myself what this lens is all about. Follow my blog as I use this lens on a daily basis and discover for yourself if this lens is indeed a diamond in the rough, or if it simply just another average, try to do it all, kit level lens.

1909 White Steam Car Lamp

This is most likely a 1909 White Steam Car Roadster. Have a look at the video links here to see one being built up by Jay Leno from a pile of rust. What an amazing car!

The White Motor Company operated from 1900 to 1980. On July 4, 1905, a racing steam car named "Whistling Billy" and driven by Webb Jay set a record of 73.75 mph (118.66 kph) on the Morris Park Racecourse. In 1909, president-elect William Howard Taft selected a 40 hp (30 kW) White Model M 7-seat tourer as the first official automobile of the President of the United States. The last steam cars were built in 1911 after which the company moved over to petrol cars.

Here is my shot taken at the Southward Car Museum. I do hope the photo will do the car justice :-)
