  7. Went on a really nice run with a few friends to Leominster and around.
    Stopped off at this place for a bite to eat.

    On the way back I called in to top us the gas and this lovely 1920's car pulled up behind me.

    a little road trip with a couple of buddies with wifes riding shotgun :) A week up the west coast of Scotland at the end of September. Covered roughly 1200 miles without a hitch.. The light coloured coupe was just just buttoned up the day before we left, this was its maiden journey..

    1650 miles in the last four days, through six states and back. Most of it on secondary roads (US30 East from Chicago to Philadelphia. US20 West from Toledo to Chicago.)

    Wheels were clean and shiny when I left.


    That’s about the end of the year, though. Plates expire on Saturday.

  19. A couple of years ago I went that route part way through IN and the roads were so rough, I thought it was going to knock the front axle right out from under it!

    Going to a U-pick vegetables joint to make some homemade Hot Giardiniera but looked great in the field of Hot Peppers. FBAE1944-1C5F-4BC6-A3E9-7F51E2562A69.jpeg

    Drive my Desoto powered duece coupe every day its dry. Cant beat the feeling.
    At my age, I dont buy green bananas to do not put off anything that is fun.!!!
  28. I had a appointment to get new mufflers. It was snowing yesterday morning which is the earliest I can remember in Missouri. After that I figured what the heck it's already wet might as well drive to work 70 mile round trip.

    It seemed ok to me, no worse than I’m used to around the farm country west of Chicago. I got off 20 West at 39 South to pick up 80 / 294 / 88 as the last leg on the way home. Didn’t want to mess with 30 through Chicago Heights again.
