After a bit of drama and a couple of cuts to my hands, it's finally up and being decortated at the moment. It still touches the ceiling, but she's sweet. A couple of my kids won't be here for Xmas, so are having a get together this weekend...just a trial run for next week.

It's a wildling pine from my daughter's place (not the daughter in the Laser) and is about 3 years old. Wildling pine are a rampant pest in NZ, they grow 7 times faster than where they came from. Maybe we will get the next one at 2 years old.

Nice tree, but I'm loving the "Melbourne taxi yellow" Laser even more...that 3 door model was called the Lynx here. They were crazy expensive when new!

Pinus Radiata I'd say, they have pines on both sides of their property. They grow like weeds.

It's a Laser Lynx, the Ford version of the Mazda Neo. Powered by the B6 engine, North Americans will know it in the Miata, what the rest of the world calls an MX-5.
