What did you see on the road today?


Recommended Posts

Saw this driving home last night. Couldn't get any better pics.

 

Appears to be some sort of Kenworth race truck. There were definitely some big chrome turbos on it. Thought I got a pic of the team name on the door.

No pictures but I had to share...

I was coming home on the New Jersey Turnpike on Thursday afternoon.  Speed limit is 65 but unless you are going 80, you are in the way.  Every so often you hit a snag of traffic where a few slow moving cars decide to clog the road side by side.  This was one of those times.  Three lanes wide and three slow vehicles averaging between 50-60 in the lanes.  And of course they kept slowing down and speeding up. The one in the fast lane was also wandering in the lane.  I got in the middle lane and that car moved enough forward that I was alongside the car in the fast lane.  I glance over and see that the driver is a young woman.  Then I saw a small head and realized she had an infant on her lap!  At that moment I saw a flash of white tossed to the passenger side of the car and realized.... yes!  She was changing a diaper!

Last Friday while coming back home after visiting a local Speed Shop, I saw a Duster:

And on Saturday was one of the first really warm days around here. So I went for a little Cruising with my Pickup Truck and saw these... It looked like there was a lot of cars in traffic!

On the same day I also saw some others where I wasn't able to take a picture, or I was, but I missed...:D They were at least a red '63 Oldsmobile, Triumph Herald, '68 or '69 Roadrunner/GTX/Satellite or something like that, light blue '65 Valiant Convertible, Opel Rekord C Coupe and 1st gen Opel Manta. Plus a Lotus Seven.

...And today I saw this '65 Rambler American which is used as a daily driver all year round. Of course the winters around here are pretty rough for these classics, so it's not in a perfect condition anymore. But, it's still a million times cooler than any of the new plastic cars.B)

I'll attempt to post a photo here. A Dodge panel truck (modified?) I'm guessing it's from the late 1950s. 

Well that didn't work. I'll have to try to figure out how to post a photo from an e mail.

My father found this in a barn over the weekend with 2 trailer loads of Model A & T parts. It's all been in there for well over 50 years. It's a Model T Ford that they used on the farm. We put some gas in it & a battery but the starter was dead. I told my father I'll crank it by hand, after a spin we heard the coils buzz & about 4 cranks later she came alive. It sat there & idled like a new car, it was still strapped to the trailer so we didn't check to see if it would move on it's own. Maybe next weekend we'll go for a spin.

Riding my bike today, it felt like my seat was coming loose. I happened to be right in front of a garage with the door open. I went in to borrow an allen wrench and there was a Lotus Esprit sitting there, solid but dusty. I want to go back tomorrow to give the guy a coffee shop gift card and take a picture.
