Is there really any debate?
That dream that won’t go away, but will probably never be achieved. For me it is an e type. Had a few very close calls where I probably could have made a purchase happen, but for various reasons didn’t pull the trigger.
Don’t worry kids, if you liked the vintage stuff there is much more to come.
1977 First Car 1966 Austin Healey Sprite. Sadly I have no pictures, this was pirated from the internet, it was purchased for $500, and wasn’t this nice, the green was also more of an olive drab non-stick color
“What is it?”
We have roofage. Rain, January like temps, and snow, have slowed but not stopped progress on garage majal
I apologize for the poor video, especially my mirror, and also apologize to the world for driving while videoing. I actually saw this thing parked and planned on snapping a couple quick pics as I went by, but then it pulled out and ended up next to me at the stoplight. I felt compelled record its presence. Took this…
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.

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
