Would you buy a used car from these guys?

I was going through some of my photos this Sunday morning as part of some digital housekeeping when I came across this one, of my podcasting partner Shel Holtz and I taken by Shel’s wife Michele in Concord, California, last June:


We were thinking of updating the pic on our For Immediate Release website as the one there was taken in March 2006.

We’ve changed a bit appearance-wise in three years.

Great pic though it is (nice job, Michele!), we haven’t used the new one. No particular reason, just didn’t get around to it. Looking at it today, though, maybe a subconscious reason in my mind is that maybe we look kind of Blues Brothers-ish but not so stylish. Funeral directors or mafia hit men perhaps. Or just a bit like dodgy used-car salesmen.

So what do you think? Would you?

[Update Oct 5] Brendan Cooper, clearly a wizard with PhotoShop, has a little bit of fun with the pic:


Shades of David Bailey‘s Ronnie and Reggie rather than Neil and Chris. Obviously.
