New addition to TDFcc!

TDF fly into a bad Bloody Mary, and serves you with a nice new recipe

Our favourite pink bird did a fly by at a small southern Swedish town yesterday. T(ired)DF wanted a drink and though: Why not a classic Bloody Mary?

But… – NO FLAMINGO LOVE FOR THE BLOODY MARY AT GÄSTGIVARGÅRDEN IN VÄRNAMO! Bad excuse for just plain… Read more →

With great sorrow TDF must report the loss of Don Featherstone

As you all know TDF is a big fan of Don’s work, especially the design of the original Pink Plastic Flamingo (designed in 1957).  But Don also made more that 600 other designs during his 43 years of employment at Union Products. He is also known for his wife and him matching their outfit during the years with same pattern shirts and skirts! Don Featherstone – a true inspiration! So it… Read more →

HONDA CB125 – The lightweight Cafe

A short trip to the garage got the Flamingo to try out some small mods this week. Observe! TDFcc-pagevote is on: For colour I am thinking about staying with the black framework.

The Honda C110 gets some attention

The TDF joined the awesome Classic Honda Club last week.
