    Neighbourhood sightings encouraged as well.

    My Dad got a new toy.  Not exotic, but a real survivor. 

    He had a white 1961 Galaxie just like this one when he met my mom in 1965.  This one is very clean and in pretty nice shape.  44,000 original miles.


    I do like a Galaxie, especially the wagon.

    @dbCooper: Love it! Thanks for sharing.

    Must say… makes me wonder if we have other members holding out on us. 

    This is a callout for all of you who haven’t yet revealed your sweet whips. You know who you are!!! Now show us the money!

    Did get notification that my wife’s new Bronco slated for build in early December….so there’s that. Will snap a pic of my dad’s 1973 Formula 455 when I go to his house. Me and my siblings will be fighting over it when he’s gone

    I’d share a pic of my Veyron….but it’s in the shop.

    You know how I know that’s not mine?  Because it’s parked next to another car.  And it’s not in the shop.

    @dbCooper- That is one sweet ride.  How often do you roll the tires and drop the top?  Bonus for the third pedal.

    When I was active in the Porsche club....this is a club member's house.   And he's outside the good levees.

    Weather dependent, try to enjoy at least monthly driving, Apr.-Oct.  I've taken it from 53k miles to 78k, but miles driven/year has gone down with time.  Top down is the preference, I'd say it's down 50% of the time.
    *sad to see the third pedal largely disappearing.

    Much appreciate the info.  Glad you get it out and about as that would be a total waste under cover in a garage.  Hopefully climate change is not the down driver in miles/year  =)  Go forth and enjoy even more.  
    Edit: Given the vintage I'm guessing it can go quite a distance before you use a battery tender.  But no chance for the 6 months.    =)

    Always believed non-use can be the hardest use of a car, need to exercise the mechanicals.  😁   I do use a battery tender year around, along with a disconnect switch.  Only "off" draw is the analog clock (which does not work).  Takes but a couple minutes to swap in/out, so I do it.  Ancient tender and Optima Battery, both still going strong.   🙂

    @ColbyLang  how’s your wife’s honker doing? And what bronco trim package did you order? Hard or soft top? Curious

    Honker almost back to 100%, way better than she was pre surgery…thanks for asking!

    Bronco is a 4 door soft top Outer Banks edition. Soft top as my inside scoop told me hard tops are what is delaying production. We’ll add the hard top once they become readily available at the dealership

    Glad to hear @ColbyLang! That bronco is going to be awesome!

    @alaskanassasin, just heard from my buddy that owns the dealership. Our build week of 12/6 is the final build out for 2021 for Ford. We could potentially have it before 2022. We were initially told July 2022.

    Looks like someone took a newer charger and chopped it up to look like a rampage.

    That's weird.  Chargers have four doors.  There was some serious work done to that.  

    I kinda like it!

    It appears to be a Smyth Kit.

    Porsche 718, which I find beautiful.  Excellent proportion and design.




    And a very clean Citroen


    I've not seen an SM driving in the wild for years, great spot and a fabulous car.

    People drop the Maserati Merac engine in the SM, I read.  Car is nearly perfect except for "adequate" acceleration.  Hard to believe the SM is around 3200 pounds.
