JUNE 2019 CAR SPOTTERS!

Recommended Posts

OK, I'll play your game.  '56 Continental Mark II in perfect shape, black with tan roof, parked in a driveway... in a light rain weather situation.

In other news, we've had a couple Benz GLA 250s traded in the last few weeks where I work.  We sell Hyundai and Mazda at my location.

Had to run to the post office this morning, saw a sharp red w/ white top '59 Edsel 4dr sedan at a gas station and a very clean black '96 Impala SS.

Saw a sharp 73 Grand Prix. Rolling on Cragar SS mags.  Custom purple-blue paint.  Nice rumble.   - Moltie

Was out doing the lot lizard thing.  Local country dealer has two WT Z71 extended cabs with the chrome bumpers, 18" wheels, Duratrac tires and the plenty able 4.3.  Silver and Shadow Gray.  They are SO NICE.  Sigh.  Want one.

Beautiful weather again on Sunday... saw a sharp 73 Grand Prix. Rolling on Cragar SS mags.  Custom purple-blue paint.  Nice rumble.    Went up to the lake, found a nice local Mexican place for dinner, found some beautiful hilly, twisty backroads (Willoughby Hills/Kirtland, Oh) and on one of those roads saw a new ZR1 (bright orange) zipping along, followed by a clean early 90s C4 convertible in white w/ red interior.   Saw a gorgeous silver w/ blue top '67 Corvette convertible.

Lot-drove this '60 F-100 4-spd today. Shifted way nicer than my '40 for some reason- perhaps it was more worn in. The '60 was in for brake & exhaust work.

Just saw this sharp 71 Impala sport coupe.

A few min later spotted a sharp silver blue 72 Cutlass formal roof coupe in a driveway.    Then later on the way home saw a really clean '86-90 Pontiac Safari wagon in traffic.  Dark blue w/ blond plood trim in good shape, wire wheel covers, whitewalls and mudflaps.  No rust that I could see.

Saw a '90s Roadmaster wagon in dark blue w/ light trim in the service bay at the FCA dealer this morning.   They had a white GC Trackhawk in the showroom, pretty sweet.  Didn't check to see if they had any Gladiators yet, didn't see any.

 I was in getting my 40k service plus oil & filter change, tire rotation, recall fix, etc.  Going back in tomorrow to get the passenger side mirror that I smashed replaced.

Yeah...neat to see a CUV being used like an SUV. (J/K)  And the loading area in front of Ace is on an uphill slope, so you end up loading at an angle.  I loaded some mulch, soil, anti-grub spread, etc in my Jeep along w/ lightbulbs...playing the Mr. domestic suburban homeowner role...

Grubs become lightning bugs.  I stopped killing them years ago when I learned that.

 

It's a wonder those Teslas weren't all red... to match the ink on the balance sheet.

The problem w grubs is the deer dig up the yard looking for them.  Made a big mess last year.

Saw a Cherry Pontiac G6 2 door Coupe on the way to the gym today. Wow, first one I had seen in forever. Had out of state plates, but could not identify them.

Took a drive yesterday out into an area I hadn't been before (Norwalk and Milan, Ohio), saw a variety of interesting older cars..several 30s Model A hot rods rolling along (must have been a car show they were coming from/going to) , a sharp modded dark blue '68-72 Nova w/ an outlaw style hood,  a pair of early 60s Studebaker 4drs in front of an old, closed gas station,  a clean blue '64 Olds Cutlass 2dr ht, and a sharp white '73 Mustang convertible. 

Visited the Thomas Edison childhood home and museum in Milan, Ohio...neat little town w/ several museums.    

Then went up to Marblehead Lighthouse (been there several times) and out to East Harbor State Park and Beach in Marblehead--very windy and blustery on Lake Erie yesterday, but sunny.   Saw a clean white '66 Impala 2dr ht near the beach. 

Ended the day at Firelands Winery in Sandusky for wine tasting...picked up a few bottles for the stash.  Didn't see anything too interesting in the parking lot, though.
