Three things of interest....coming home from work last night.

First of all... nice 78-79 Olds Cutlass, clean but not showroom clean, silver, decent.

88 Ford Mustang foxbody hatchback, nothing exceptional but not rusted, modded, or destroyed either. These cars have almost disappeared from the road around here.

A Caprice wagon, Maroon, Yellow tribal style flames, with two lime green surfboards on top and 22" wheels...Oh...and a high rise cowl induction hood. Quite the odd car, but it almost half ass worked in a half ass sort of way.

Oh, and make that 4. Really good looking Solstice...white...black top....nicely polished wheels.

Saw/went for a spin (for the first time) in a Cyclone Gray '06 GTO M6 owned by a guy in Connecticut who was also down to Rocksand Racing in Bethlehem, PA for a suspension check-up. What a ride and I always forget that awesome extra "thrust" from a stick car :AH-HA_wink:

While in PA caught this (Macungie car show day...so there were a LOT of very cool classics roaming the roads):


Then at Rocksand the 9.xx second Rocksand GTO:


And someone else's project beside it:


Then on my way home, a hot blonde in a Stryker Blue Premium/Sport '09 G8 GT followed me out of Wawa in Quakerstown, onto 476 where I first lost her because she wanted to play and went full speed around an on ramp loop and then we continued tagging each other back & forth until the next tolls. Fun. I like her, whoever she is, a LOT :D

Super-disturbing extension of a disturbing trend: mid-90's Wrangler Sahara and late 90's S-10 ZR2... both supposed to be serious off-roaders... both with 20 inch, blinged-out rims and rubber band tires. Dopes.:rolleyes:

Caddycruiser: I wish I had been along for that trip!

You had a good car day.

I did. And while my G8 was being finished at the shop and the other guy's GTO pulled in, we were downtown with the owner, on one of his renowned field trips, at the new Sands Casino--that was even more fun. I saw, rode in, chased, etc. more great cars and admired more sites yesterday than I have in a while, and the G8 tag team chase on the way home was a great wrap up.

Further confirming my predicted soon move to eastern PA, well, for that, and other reasons. Or just out of Delaware, almost anywhere for that matter, but I enjoy PA.

Oh...also saw a red '09 ZR-1 up close for the first time on display at the Sands. Yeah, I'll take one, but not in red...killer car.

1970 Dodge Super Bee, it was SWEET and in MINT condition.

Awe...we had one of those, in "'77 Corvette yellow" (I always remember it from my father responding with that when asked) with a white rear stripe and--unchanged--the original green interior that was almost flawless, but never had a chance to convert to black before we sold it. Loved that car, loved how it looked, and loved how it felt, very cool and it was the last one we took to shows.

Cool Gladiator...haven't seen one of those in ages..that's the pre-73 (or 71, not sure what year they changed it) front end.

I haven't seen one of the early '60s Wagoneers with that style front in ages either...they even had a 2dr version (not the same as the Cherokee 2dr that came in the mid '70s) and a panel/sedan delivery style body as well..

Also, ran a service call for work in the middle of BFE. Found not one but two yards with old cars in them.

First Yard...Mostly falcolns, VW beetles, 4 door trash sedans, etc...

But they did have-

An intact 47ish Plymouth that looked like it could drive out of there.

A seemingly "real" B5 blue 70 Roadrunner.

A 60 Cadillac convertible, white with a red interior.

You wonder how cars like the Road Runner and the Caddy ever wind up in junkyards.

Silver looks great on all of them...but on a 66 GTO...WOW!

Neighbor growing up had a 'real" 69 Z-28 with the cross ram manifold and the rear disc brakes and a few of the other "rare" Z-28 goodies. It was Cortez silver, no vynal top, and a blue interior. A little different, but man what a car.

Bet they didn't build many 69 Z's in that combo.

The other car that wears silver well is the 78-El Camino. Saw a really nice one in that salvage yard. Looked clean, which was odd as the plant growth around it suggested it ahd been sitting there for awhile.

  • Cadillac Refreshes the CT5 with an Updated Look for 2025

    Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cadillac unveiled the refreshed Cadillac CT5 sedan.  CT5 retail sales have been on an upswing of late, increasing over 35%.  In a time when sedan sales are stagnating or disappearing entirely, Cadillac's positive numbers have given hope that the luxury sedan market isn't quite dead yet. The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign


    Ford updates the 2024 F-150 with More Standard Power, More Hybrid Production, and a New Tailgate

    Tonight at an event ahead of the Detroit Auto Show, Ford unveiled the updated 2024 Ford F-150. Starting in 2024, the F-150 will drop the base 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V6 in favor of the familiar 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6. This increases standard power across the line by 25 horsepower and a whopping 135 lb-ft of torque.  Additionally, citing a 28% increase in hybrid F-150 sales, Ford is increasing production of the hybrid powertrain to meet this demand. Ford expects to double the mix of hybrid a
