Saturday was glorious. 70 degrees and sunny. Cool in the shade and warm in the sun. The kind of day 9 days out of ten this time of year usually are, but one day out of ten has been this year.
Have had 3 days in the last 2 weeks where I could work, it is generally sunny and pleasant here this time of year, but this fall has been a very wet exception. The window was just a test fit. Frustration mounts.
This is an admittedly flattering picture, it has surface rust on the bumpers and a cracked grill as well as numerous dents, but only a couple of spots of rust through, and none in the rear fender ells. All four hubcaps, drives well, no bad noises shakes or shimmys.
Dont know if this has been featured here or on Jalopnik before, but well worth a watch. Haven't watched it for years, just did again, still wow.
I am an old dude who has subscribed to Road & Track forever, and Car and Driver off and on for nearly as long. I know readership is down but trying to get the pulse of Jalops on interest and readership.
I had a lot of brilliant things to say tonight, but the world will have to wait for my words of wisdom, because I remembered that earlier today I saw a thing and took a picture of it.
I have big plans for the day, I actually went to bed (and sleep!) before 10 o’clock last night, I was so excited. I usually only do this (go to bed early) once or twice a year if I am really tired or sick. Now I am awake, my plans for the day involve digging a trench to re-route my underground sprinkler lines due to…
In my littlish Midwestern community.
House down the street in my new neighborhood, 60s Beetle and a Honda Insight a true Renaissance man, maybe a jalop or opponaut?
30s Fords are growing on me, spotted when I went out to supper last night. That is a fine looking truck.
Tomorrow we tear down my single stall 21 x 13' garage. The replacement will be a 3.5 stall, 21 x 40' (city won’t let me go deeper than 21', setback limit).
I dig fender mirrors
Screw it, let’s go wheels
I recently got permission to post here so thought I would say just a little about myself and the things I may be posting about. Lifelong British Sports car guy with lots of Healeys, Triumphs, and MGs in my background. Currently have a TR250 which I restored myself about ten years ago.
Aristotle Me. The statement has been empirically proven for nearly 40 years by me. I am printing T-Shirts, who is in?
Wickedly awesome, pictures I took from the cruise by don’t do it justice, lowered modded late 60s or very early seventies t-bird.
Remember the pre-cgi days when movies set in the future always had cars that were lightly disguised contemporary vehicles made by a couple add ons or deletions to look “futuristic”.

Here is an old video from a year or two ago, but don't know if it has been featured here or on Jalop before.
I have figured it out, after reading articles about how Eddie Murphy, the edgy, black humorist from the 80s has become decidedly unfunny, I know what he is doing, and the act is not original. Remember Jerry Lewis, the madcap, crazy 50s and 60s comedian became the trying to be suave and decidedly not trying to be…
