That is a neat shot. Almost looks like it could be out of a period-piece movie.

A Vector?? That takes the cake.
Cars and coffee kind of thing? I just wish such things existed around here.

there's nary a car on that list I don't like, except maybe the Shelby 427 replica---these cars are SO much nicer with a 289 or 302.

I have a hard time remembering the ones I don't like.... that's why the list is so good....
Hot rods and Model A pickups don't really do it for me (but those were there, too)..
Clapped out Jetta from the '90s..
Early '80s VW pickup (that one is actually cool)
Alfa Romeo Milano

Here in the Northeast, the summer cars are put away.
A Cruise-In would consist of a bunch of pickups with mounted plow blades.

1974 Ford Pinto Squire in forest green metallic and the requisite wood grain paneling. It was quite rusty and a bit of a hooptie, but to even see a survivor in any condition is quite amazing.

Was out driving with my daughter today (yet another practice session parallel parking. I think she can now teach the other kids how to do it!)
while on some local streets, an early (pre-Bumper) Gremlin passed by, then returned a few minutes later. Had a V8 (that I could hear) and I think a stick. blue. Needed paint, but body looked sound with no rust noticed.
Told my daughter that I wanted it bad. She, as usual, thought I was nuts!

I remember as a teenager having some 60+ weather one January in Chicago quickly followed by the worst blizzard in it's history - but relax!
