What did you see on the road today?

Recommended Posts

The wheels had a bit of surface rust, but I didn't see any in the body. Of course,  I didn't climb up there with a screwdriver either.

Not on the road, but in a parking lot near home as I was walking home from a local grocery store.  Haven't seen a Yugo in forever.  Not sure where  it was going, but it had Michigan plates.

A guy used to race one at our local track that had a big cube s&s motorcycle engine in it 😁

Outside a "higher end" grocery store in Windsor, CA.  I believe that is a '46 Ford stakebed under that material.  And yes, that is mine at the far left.

Is that a bug shield on the front of that or a Covid 19 mask?! 😃 On the local news here the other night they showed a big yellow school bus that was driving around neighborhoods that had a big sheet "mask" like that on the front. It was filled with kids that were being driven around to other kid's houses that had birthdays that week.

I only saw it briefly as it passed through an intersection, but appeared to be an early 30s 3 or 5 window full fendered coupe. Very cool indeed.

I assume its a Covid mask, the local authorities have mandated every person wear a cloth facial covering if outside the home.  The Ford is just going with the times.

I saw the motherlode all at one repair shop. A '49 Lincoln Cosmopolitan,  a '50 Buick Roadmaster and a VW convertible.  None were exactly jewels but all were fun to look at. The Lincoln was a real sleeper as it has a Ford 390 under the hood.

I know where you took those pictures. They do get some interesting cars from time to time.

Yes they do, as does Holley. I have one of my cars there now and the place looks like an indoor car show.

Considering their age these cars look very good. At least the "tin worm" hasn't had it's way with their bodies.

I live on Mill Rd. directly across Emmett St. from Holley's. Every time I go past there I have to look to see what's new. When Barry was still running Holley's, he'd sometimes give me a little tour.

It hit a deer. Its Honda Canadas test car. I think it already had like 180,000km on it. They drive it through snow storms and beat on it every day.

This is especially true considering these cars are in southwest Michigan!

It’s neat to hear about a supercar that’s used like a daily driver. Thankfully, the damage doesn’t look too bad.

I had my first sighting of the 2020 Corvette today - a black one. Sorry, no picture, but I suspect you know what they look like.

I saw this Econoline roadster pull into the parking lot this morning at well, you can see where.  Would make a great parade car for the prom queen if there was going to be a prom this year?

A friend of a friend saw this the other day. Not just on the road, but in their driveway. They had someone inquire on something they had for sale, and the potential buyer was driving THE Dady Rat.

Here’s a link for some more information on it.

I have to agree to an extent.

I can't tell any of these "super cars" apart anymore.

They all look the same to me.
