Yesterday on my way to work I passed an interesting load on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  A pickup pulling an open trailer with two early 50s Jaguar convertibles. One was 3/4 a car the other was about 1/2 a car.  Both looked restorable.

On the way home, same road, I'm passing a big Ram pickup with an open trailer. Load wasn't interesting, just an SUV.  I'm driving about 80 with cars in front of me, truck is going maybe 75 with other slower traffic in front of him.  I'm looking at the trailer, and all of a sudden this friggin Japanese Rocket motorcycle goes flying by, BETWEEN US.  It's only two lanes there.  I watch him swerve to the left and pass the cars in front of me in the left shoulder.  The bike was going so fast that he disappeared ahead of us.  IDIOT!   There was barely a few feet between us.  All he needed was to hit a mirror and he's an organ donor!

I saw a late model Chevy van with what appeared to be a Cadillac Escalade front end on it today on I-95 near the MD-DE border. Only got a glimpse of it since he was southbound and I was northbound.

Just pulled into the local Walmart parking lot to see a really nice, clean, red and white, '57 Hardtop with Baby Moons and wide whites.

Ummm.... 57 Ford? 57 Chevy? 57 Olds? 57 Studebaker? 57 Nash? :unsure:

 I've seen a variety of cars on the streets in the last couple of weeks. Yesterday saw a Tesla Model X, before that a 1959 Chevy Impala 4 door hardtop, a MG-TD, Lotus Europa TC, and an early (1960 or 61) Ford Falcon.

Two shockingly clean mid 80's FWD Mopars?!  A 4 headlight Daytona Turbo Z and a Non-Shelby 4 headlight L-Body Charger!

Not actually on the road, but while I was at the Gold Strike Casino while on the road for work. Some movie cars they have on display and one non movie car.

Furious 7...

Couldn't get a picture, but I just saw a nearly Police Box Blue late model Civic sedan with TARDIS in chrome on the right side of the trunk.

Was at an intersection this morning between a dark red Challenger Hellcat and a new Jaguar F-Pace (first I'd seen of the new CUV).   Both had very different, but appealing exhaust notes as they pulled away...

I saw a U2 Spy plane doing touch and goes at Beale Air Force Base. I loaded at a sand plant basically across the street.

I've seen the SR-71 up close. When was in high school I was in the Air Force Junior ROTC. We tool a trip every year to Edwards. We got walk around it. It is an awesome piece of aviation history.

Would have been even cooler to be there when they were using '68-'69 SS396 El Caminos as the chase cars. B)

Saw a late model Ford Crown Vic with big rubber on it--hanging out the wheel wells 2-3" on all four corners. Looked like many models I built in the '60s, and I don't think I've seen anything like that on the road--at least not a big American car--since the '70s. :blink:
