Didn't do that, but did have a hazelnut milkshake for breakfast at a Burgerville (healthy!)

They are beautiful cars.
Yeah, the Fiskar is simply stunning in person. I saw plenty of exotics on Saturday around the "Mag Mile". It was a strange day. Left the house in a short sleeve shirt with 60 degree temps and by 7 O'clock I was walking out of Water Tower Place mall with sleet falling down and wishing I didn't leave my coat at the hotel. Saw an Aston DB (couldn't get a good enough look to see which number, a few Maseratis, a Bentley Continental convertible among others.

I've just finished appraising two Aston Martins: a DB2/4 Mark III drophead (rather rare, especially with left hand drive) and a DB6 with Vantage motor option, done in a very nice, but alas, incorrect navy-bluish color. These are not the most valuable of Astons but they ain't chump change either.

Nice, I've always appreciated Astons. Sure some are more desirable than others, but I've generally always liked their style.

Unlike some exotics, these Astons look really good "in person". The DB6 is a handsome car.
#27554 of 30830 1987-91 Olds 88 coupe...

spotted on my lunch break. It was white, and looked like it was in great shape. Kind of a rare sight now, and even when new, these coupes (as well as the LeSabre version) just didn't seem all that popular. By that time though, it seems like the coupe in general was pretty much past its prime.
I think they look sharp in black, with alloy wheels. But this one just had wire spoke hubcaps.

I have the old car out today - someone else has similar ideas, as I saw a white 356 coupe. Not a common site on a chilly Monday morning, no doubt.

Now what are the odds? In our parking lot this morning was the same vintage 88 sedan. Lt Blue with wire spokes and dark tinted windows. Looks to be in great shape.
Do you remember the LeSabre T-type coupe? There can't be many of those left.

Two doors down from our first 'starter' house, was a soft-spoken, very nice older fellow named Bob who had a very sharp late '80's-era Delta 88 coupe, that ubiquitous maroon with the aluminum wheels you'd see on Toronados of that period. It was a very nice looking car IMHO. He told me once he had owned a new '62 Olds Starfire and that he really enjoyed that.

Was out in the old car again, saw what I think was a ~70 442 convertible, top down on a mid 30s day. Also an early NSX and a copper red 70s 911. Nice to see enthusiasts taking advantage of the weather.
Also something weird, Fairmont wagon that looked to have never been washed. Around here, that means it was covered with algae/mold, looked like it had been pulled out of a lake.
