There have been a few car gatherings in town lately because, of course, it's summer.

Last weekend I had to avert my eyes from a few 'for sale' signs as there was a 1953 Chev calling my name -- love the trucks in particular.

That's my birth year and there's a big birthday coming up and I'm really having a hard time talking myself out of a big reward for making it this far...

This week (lord help me) it's Jags.

Chequebook stays home! But damn, it would look good on me.

(But they're a good investment, right? Right??)

Omg! That is gorgeous!!!!!!

But ... Yes. Back off, checkkbook!!!

I would be absolutely no help as I'm already in the passenger seat waiting for you to hop in for the test drive.

Good gawd that is a beauty!

You should call me after I start my new job on 8/12. The company I'll be working for restores and sells classic Corvettes and other performance cars, as well as later model used cars (Vettes, Jags, BMWs, etc.)

Sadly, I have no garage. Just a carport, and the racoons would probably move in immediately....

Yes, I don't have a garage either. That's my excuse too.

So beautiful ! will hate the repair/maintenance bills and the insurance.
You would be paranoid to park it anywhere !
Dreaming is cheap.

FaithFool posted 7/27/2013 16:47 PM

Exactly right ^^^. Spoken from experience too.

Spoken from experience too.

Yes I am ! Classics are my weakness.

You would look SO elegant riding around in this!

On the other hand, you wouldn't be able to afford to eat, or pay for your mortgage, or pay for gas for it, etc.....
