A few interesting finds...

Blue 67 Chevy truck I was talking about in another thread...would love an old Chevy truck at some point.

Blue 65 Bucik skylark, two door hardtop, just like my parents had as a new car when I came home from the hospital in 65. Easy to forget what beuaitful cars 60's buicks are...also another blue Buick...63-64 4 door post...just north of 5th Avenue in Chillicothe...

Daughter and I went to a couple of car lots and checked out a red 2003Boxter S and a red 2005 Honda S2000. Methinks there may be another roadster in my future...and yes I know roadster is supposed to mean a car with no roll up side windows, but I degress.

Looked at a red 2009 MINI Cooper S at Midwestern Auto Group, the same place we checked out the Boxster. I think I see one of those in my future as well. Black roof, black stripes...

Red 65ish MGB downtown parked when we were waiting for a 4th of July parade...

Blue 1950's Volvo on High street waiting at the light at Gay street...

Blue Prelude SH, about 1999

Red Ford Bronco, first gen, nicely built mud truck, sitting at the BMV when my 16 year old son got his learners permit.

White G8 GT GXP at a stoplight down near Cinncinati.

White BMW 1 series...

Blue 1957 Pontiac 4 door hardtop, nice, sitting in someones yard on state route 104 about a quarter mile north of where I live. I may need to go ask questions about that, looked like a nice car.

As far as black cars, orange cars, or other colors...same lot that had the red S2000 also had a beautiful 1999 C5 fixed roof Corvette coupe...less than 20,000 miles, less than 20,000 dollars. Who needs porn when there are so many cool cars to lust after. VERY well cared for, nice aftermarket wheels and a few other aftermarket items.

Green Morgan roadster...

Orange MGB GT (the coupe)

Black original mini

Green W-31 olds Cutlass, 1969, sitting south of Broadway a block south of Kroger. Green on Green, IIRC a green vynal top. Must not be many surviving W31 Cutlasses in 3X green. IMHO the best looking car of the whole bunch I've posted...

What was nice about the cutty is although it had minor rust it was untouched and unmolested...original paint was still shiny...original rally wheels...looked like it was about ten years old rather than forty. Unusual to see a nice survivor on the roads up north here.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, black Chrysler 300L (1965). On Grandview Avenue, about noon on Saturday. White interior, looked to be a well preserved original.

Seemingly out of nowhere on a gravel, creekside road this weekend, an early Porsche 911, followed immediately by a red old school Mini. Also, a huge trike with an SBC and a seat wide enough for 4 people, going up and down the road a few times in front of my bro's cabin. ALSO an orange 2010 Camaro coming in the opposite direction on a 4-lane highway on the way home yesterday.

I love it when people actually drive old sportscars like the mini and the 911.

Down the street a piece, there's a triple green '74 Valiant sedan parked in a driveway, in fine condition.

Cool...I like the old Darts, Valiants, Dusters, and Demons. My older brother's only foray into Mopar ownership was a triple green '71 Dart Swinger 2dr ht, w/ slant 6. Had it around 1979, when he had a '71 Ford custom van and a '75 Firebird Formula. He's had 50 some cars over the 43 years...

Fellow Oz greatness lurking in front of me, first exiting the Staples parking lot and on down the road together.

Fun hearing both of our exhaust notes as she prodded the LS2 and I just kept punching it to stay with her on Rt. 1 and then off onto the next road. Funny, I was all into it, and she was just "driving the black car"...or at least it seemed like that. Hard to tell from behind 8)

Stopped for a bagel and coffee this morning, saw a black '10 Camaro SS in front of Einstein's Bagels. First one I've seen up close and personal...nothing parked on either side, so I could do a walk-around...this car has some great proportions and contours...love the rear fender 'hips'....it's proudly RWD and low and wide. Looks even better in person than in pics. I'd previously only seen them at speed on freeways or streets and from a distance at a Chevy dealer.

Was running down the highway at 85 nest to one with my top down.

They look even better in motion, Cubical-Moltar.

On the way home, I saw a pale blue '76 or so Dodge Aspen 4dr, tan vinyl interior, windows down, 65 mph...looked solid. I pity the poor guy driving w/o A/C on a 110 degree day like today.

Near home, I saw a white w/ black vinyl top and Cragar SS wheels '71 Pontiac GT-37 (saw the badges!). Very clean except for a large scrape on the left front fender and door.
