Tintin, a boy journalist featured in a popular series of comic books and cartoons, drove and rode in a wide variety of cars throughout his adventures. We were just e-mailed the URL of a Web site that not only shows each car as drawn in the comic books, but also includes pictures--in most cases--of the real car that the comic car is based on. Just click a thumbnail on the All Tintin Cars page (or Toutes les autos de Tintin, for you purists), and two pop-up windows show the original comic and a photo of the real car. As Tintin was created in 1929, the Web site features a great collection of vintage European cars. Among the treasures on this site are a Citroen 5 CV, an Autocar Saurer bus, and an Isetta.
We hope we haven't completely distracted you from your work day.
