Two weeks before Election Day, and there were at least eight people there at the same time, voting, plus there were collection boxes outside for people who had received mail-in ballots to drop off.
But I parked right next to this:
It’s not a Prius?!?
I can’t IMAGINE a more appropriate vanity license plate.
Sorry, should have posted this earlier.
The Jag has arrived. It came last Sunday. Here it is on the transporter with 1700+ miles of road grime on it:
And here it is parked in the garage, clean and with about 60+ more miles on it than it had when it rolled off the trailer:
Just one more – this is Jaguar’s “Celestial Black” under direct sunlight:
It’s absolutely gorgeous. Reminds me of Colt’s Royal Blue finish.
And yes, it runs like a striped-ass ape.
willing to become single again, I’d be signing on the dotted line for this.
UPDATE: She said “Yes.”
Paperwork should arrive tomorrow for my signature(s). Then I just have to wait for the car to arrive from Illinois.
I think I’ll be attending car shows as an exhibitor. This is one-of-255, and most of the 255 are convertibles.
Remember my 3/4-life crisis when I sold my Mustang and bought an MG?
Almost a year later, I’m rid of the MG. Took a pretty big loss on the deal, but my garage now has a hole in it, thank you jeebus. The new owner seems pleased. I’m pleased. My wife is pleased.
Now I need to clean up the garage so she can park her car inside.
The second Saturday of every month, one of the high-end strip-malls in Tucson holds “Cars & Coffee” where, for a couple of hours, anybody can bring their car and show it off. There’s a wide, wide variety of vehicles at these things, but this month there was the largest turnout I’ve yet to see – at least a couple hundred cars. Here are some of the highlights:
First, the exotic:
Then the classic:
Next, the unusual:
And, finally, something I’ve never seen in the wild before – An aluminum-bodied, right-hand drive AC Cobra:
There were also of course Camaros and Mopars, Golf GTIs and Subaru WRXs, BMWs, Porsches and Ferraris and more Mustangs than you could shake a proverbial stick at. It’s a good show every month, and gratifying to know that there are still a LOT of young gearheads out there interested in going FAST, along with us old farts who can finally afford the cars they dreamed about in their youths.
Went to Tucson’s version of Cars & Coffee this morning. Here’s some of what I saw. First up, the unique:
And the damned near unobtanium:
And a personal “grail” car for me:
I really have to try to get to the next one by 7AM. By 9AM a lot of the cars had already left because the temperature was pushing 100°F. Good show anyway, though. I figure there were at least 125 cars there. Followed a C7 Vette into the parking lot with the license plate “HER401K”. That was pretty amusing. Didn’t see it long ‘Vette Row though:
Today was the annual Fords on Fourth car show here in Tucson, or as I like to call it, “twenty acres of Mustangs and some other Fords.”
Here are some of the other Fords.
Saw this outside the burger joint I ate at tonight:
Lighting sucked, and all I had was my cell phone, but very tastefully done!
Since the big gun bloggers are doing it….
Seen at the job site I’m currently working:
A GMC 5-window 1-ton dually welding truck, 4X4. It doesn’t get much cooler than “Ole Skhool”
