    Russo and Steele is now saying that the damage wasn't as bad as people think, but of course they have a dog in this fight and might be trying to salvage a really bad situation.

    I wouldn't store my $120K classic car in a tent, no way, no how.

    I wouldn't let my convertible sit in such an environment for a long period with the top down either, especially if it was raining outside.

    What do you suggest we do, Jim? Give him a spanking?! :P

    This Friday-Sunday (6/25-6/27). Anybody in the more-or-less local area planning on going? Lemko's going on Saturday, and taking his '89 Brougham. And as soon as the coffee kicks in, I'll finish packing my '67 Catailna, and will head on up there for the whole weekend.

    We had a very scary storm here yesterday afternoon. Fortunately, most of it was to the southwest of me. South and West Philly and Delaware County got hit the worst. How's the weather going to be tomorrow? I already have the DTS ready as a backup.

    Informal car show on the eastside of Seattle this Sunday...in an affluent area, so there are some interesting vehicles seen in old shows. I've thought about taking the old beast, but I don't know if I want to spend a whole Sunday there...or if its patinated condition will be outclassed by every other entrant.

    I think the big local Mustang show euphonium attends is coming up soon too.

    I would encourage you to enter because there is a lot of pleasure and satisfaction in not only seeing other cars, but talking to their owners as well.

    You're right about the Grand National Mustang Show, Bellevue College, the following weekend, 17th & 18th. I will attend the Participants Choice Show on Sunday and look forward to visiting with a couple of old friends & other entrants.

    If I get into the wood - fine, but don't expect to this year as the competition at the Grand National is extreme. Hope to see you there. :)
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,509
    Yeah, I've been thinking I will...I know there will be some other MB there, hopefully some other unrestored cars too. My car isn't that bad for a nearly 50 year old beast with 250K miles on it...it's just not the pristine pink of perfection usually seen at a show. More and more people are respecting preservation...or so, they should.

    Hopefully the weather will hold for your show, I remember last year it was pretty warm. I plan on stopping by sometime on the Sunday of the event.

    Anybody planning on going to the Carlisle Chrysler show this weekend July 9 thru 11?
  • andre1969andre1969 Posts: 21,849
    I'm heading up tomorrow morning, Lemko. And no, I'm not putting the 5th Ave in the burnout contest. :P

    Stopped by the Mustang show today...didn't notice Euphonium (IIRC his car is a blue 66 GT), but I wasn't there til around 3, so maybe he left as I know its a drive.

    Saw every Mustang one could imagine of course, including what I think was the first GT350, a 64 Pace car, 3x 79 Pace Cars, old police cars, ASC McLaren versions of the Capri and Mustang, every Shelby and Saleen variant imaginable, a pristine loaded white on white Mustang II Ghia...a good show for people who like Stangs. Some cool non Mustang cars too...a first gen Cougar XR7 with a factory sunroof stays in my head, along with an extremely cool fully documented black on black 63 Galaxie convertible 427/4 speed.

    I really like the first generation Cougar. In addition to the exterior styling, the dashboard was nice too. If only Mercury had continued to design such beautiful cars it wouldn't be closing shop today.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,509
    I was interested in the sunroof, a very rare option on those cars...but the car itself was cool too, sequential turn signals almost guarantee something interesting.

    The 66 Ivy Green Metallic GT was there until 4 o'clock because it was awarded First Place in it's class in the closing ceremony.

    We were parked next to a Poppy Red Coupe, it took 2nd in the A Class.

    There were 25 64.5 to 66 Coupes entered yesterday.

    Did you take in the Resto mods? There were some beauty's there like "Burpule" a stunning 66 GT Coupe with very tasteful mods.

    The Long Distance award went to a couple from NC!! Well, it was a Grand National Show that included many from BC & Alberta too.

    This is over a day later & my grin is starting to fade a little.
