A somewhat eccentric neighbor of mine built his own TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) which actually doubles as a garden shed, and to date at least has not demateralized and zipped its occupants through time and space. Its just like a real TARDIS, except it is bigger on the outside than it is on the inside!

Anyway I stopped by on the weekend with the TR250 and got a quick camera phone snap I thought I would share. (Fez and bow tie optional)

cool

almost a bit of a tear in the space-time continuum with the TR in the front and what appears to be a newer suburban in the rear

Looks like a phone both to me. I never heard of a Tardis before. Nice looking TR though.

Not a doctor who fan, I take it.

The 250 needs Sarah Jane in the driver's seat.

Yes - exactly! Aparently you can vote for it on Facebook. It is pictured outside our local libary (Carlisle MA) in the competition.

I agree - Sarah Jane Smith. Sadly Elizabeth Salden who played Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who (as well as in her own spin-off series) passed away in April this year.

Jelly Babies will just not make me smile the same way any more.

Sorry to hear that Elisabeth Sladen passed away as it was fun to see her guest appearance in the latest incarnation of Doctor Who, but Billie Piper drives a mean reasonably-priced car on Top Gear!

Heard about Sarah Jane passing, liked Billie Piper, but I'd have NO problem with young Karen Gillan sitting next to me in any of our LBCs. It's sad that I am old enough to be her father.

I was wondering if "Tardis" had already been used on personalized plates in our state.

Nope, she doesn't. The girl is smart enough to not want to know what I'm thinking.

matter of fact, she doesn't monitor ANY of my behavour.

She's a bit on an enabler, but one heck of a spouse!

One of my close friends says that out of everyone he knows, I'm the one that hit the marital home run.

She truly does rock, and I love to sing her praises.
