There’s not much I don’t like about this picture: I’m a big fan of the rear-engined Skoda 100L, like this 1970 model shown here, and I think the driver has a great look going on with the pixie haircut and the oversized sunglasses, and I’m sure those two dudes are stand-up fellas. I’m also fond of car brochure pics that take place, inexplicably, in fields. So what am I kvetching about here? The gaze. Where is that driver looking? What is she driving at?
Let’s follow the driver’s gaze here:
What’s going on? Are they tailing a squirrel or field mouse or vole? Trying to smush a cockroach the safe, clean, gas-burning way? Is she a notary public who made a decision to shun a conventional stamp and instead ordered special tires with her notary stamp carved into the tire sipes, and is currently directing her car to a stack of documents in the field that need notarizing?
