    ; after the second click, you'll see "link title"---you erase that with

    I have yet to see "link title" come up.

    Sorry, but I don't get it.

    Went to the local MBCA show today and Took a few pics

    You can see both of my beasts there.

    Oddest thing was probably an 18K mile 6.3, and a 6.9 Frankenbenz with powertrain put in a SWB W116.

    Insanely hot day for here, 95+ in the suburbs...fintail did not like 75mph highway driving, temp gauge shot up, went lower when I got down to or below the limit.

    I was thinking something like that yeah, something seems clogged maybe, or perhaps the thermostat isn't working right. I know it has been flushed in the past 5-8 years, maybe sooner.

    Visit my car space page & there will be a photo of the Mustang.

    Thank you. :)

    GT grille with fog lights always looks nice on those
  • euphoniumeuphonium Great Northwest, West of the Cascades.Posts: 3,333
    Thank you. Prior to Halogens the fogs were replaced with General Aviation landing lights that are very bright, but are so hot, you have to be going at least 55 mph to keep them cool. Today, they are more for sho than go.

    This Sunday the car is entered in www.columbiariverconcours.com & we hope it doesn't rain. :)
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,949
    Vintage fogs on a period car always look cool. My old car has period fog lights too, they often get a comment from those who are into the cars. Doesn't look like there should be much rain Sunday...good luck.

    The big Kirkland Councours is in a few weeks...top event of the year up here, well worth the price of admission.

    Today was the annual Kirkland Concours d'Elegance, and I took quite a few pics...something for everyone, from affordable Model As to an amazing assortment of Ford/Shelby/Cobra cars, Packards, Alfas, bikes, boats, even a nice MB or two for me.

    Thank you for sharing the show. Excellent photography. Much appreciated. :) :)
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,949
    You're very welcome ;)

    I'm still kind of in awe of all the Cobras and GT40s.

    But I'd have to say my faves are a couple of the Packards, the MB 380 roadster and the dirty unrestored gullwing, and that crazy big brass Peugeot.
  • euphoniumeuphonium Great Northwest, West of the Cascades.Posts: 3,333
    I was interested in viewing the 41 Cad Converts. I don't remember one colored Avacado. The '52 Cad Series 61 convert, in White, is appreciated as are the Fords of the 30's & Packards of course. Thanks again. :)

    Were any of the Cobras real, or just fakey-doos? It's not always easy to tell unless you get close in.

    Considering the very high quality of the Founders Committee who extends invitations to the participants, it is my opinion only genuine vehicles would be involved. Fakey doos reside mostly in the CA areas, but up here the Micro Soft engineer can easily afford the real deal.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,949
    All real, as far as I know every one of them. The GT40s too. Most of the cars had their history spelled out on the card in front of the car. IIRC the car wearing #1 is actually Cobra #1, and of course the Daytona Coupe #13 is famous. I think there was also Shelby Mustang #1 in attendance too.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,949
    That green 41 Caddy caught my eye too, a loud color for a not bright color, reminded me of Fiesta dinnerware. The white Caddy is actually a 53 Eldorado, the sought after expensive model.

    A coupe of Saturday's ago, I attended the Labor Day weekend auction in Auburn, IN. I was very impressed with RM's effort. I think they took control of the auction in July, so they had a short time to pull it off and they did very successfully. I've been attending this auction for the last four years and they had more cars this year I would want. The quality of the cars was "kicked up a notch". Plus, improvements had been made to the grounds and facilities. A reporter from the Fort Wayne paper came up to me and asked some questions. I think he wanted to interview someone who could compare and contrast the auction under Kruse & RM's stewardship. That next day, my name and quotes were in the paper. Kind of cool to be quoted. :shades:

    It seemed to me there were a few quite reasonably priced cars that sold, judging from the listing I saw. I haven't been to Auburn in years. Quite a show.

    Anybody going to the Fall Carlisle show this weekend?

    The Cadillac-LaSalle Club/Valley Forge Region is having its Fall Meet this coming Sunday at Peddler's Village in Lahaska, PA. I hope to have my Brougham there this year. I missed the last two years due to very poor weather. Last year's show was a complete washout.

    Anybody going to the Fall Carlisle show this weekend?

    Lemko, Fall Carlisle is actually the following weekend (September 29-October 3). Hershey is the weekend after that (Oct 6-9)
  • lemkolemko Posts: 15,196
    Thanks! I'd have driven out there and grbeck would've been like, "What are you doing here?"
  • lemkolemko Posts: 15,196
    I attended the Cadillac-LaSalle VFR National Fall Meet in Lahaska, PA with my 1989 Cadillac Brougham yesterday. It was the first time I attended in two years as the weather was very bad the previous two years and not so hot this time. I ended up washing and detailing the car two times this weekend just to get it back in the garage before the rain really broke lose! :mad:
