    A Triumph Stag, under its own power in our neighborhood. I’ve not seen a before.

    Oh Lord above. Please don't tell me that the automated PC police actually censored his last name.

    No... that was a self-"censored" joke. We have no automated stuff, just us :)

    Not sure I understand what you mean. When I made the post the system returned the line instantly. I went to edit it, but then changed my mind so I left it. When I hit the Cancel button I was surprised to see the word was displayed. Later on I went back and saw the censor had returned. But the original was certainly automated. And of course it was not a joke at all, but a well-known individual's actual name.

    Been so long since I'd see it in action and everyone here is very well behaved, so it slipped my mind!

    Black car is a Buick of indeterminate year, 1942-48 I believe. Wheels and tires are anachronisms.

    @fintail,
    That black car does have a vaguely Y Job vibe.

    parked up front in the valet section of a local fancy steakhouse, a gorgeous white and blue 2 door 55 Belair. Stunning condition.

    This might be fuzzy, because I had to zoom in.
    I opened my garage door, and heard something rumbly. Spotted this behind the house on the next street over.

    What the heck is that black thing in the foreground? Looks like some sort of mutant crab.

    Whatcha think, 60’s GMC or early 70’s?

    In traffic today saw an E-Type roadster, maybe a quarter mile ahead of me, but they have a distinct shape. Also saw a Vanagon, W124 making creaking sounds, a R107 SL parked beside a R129 SL in a church parking lot, Tercel 4x4 wagon near a late 80s Subaru AWD coupe I see whenever I take the old car out, and that was about it - a little warm here, which might keep non-AC cars off the road - my car feels like an oven when it is 80F or more.

    I cannot quite see the front of the hood clearly, but it almost appears to have the sharp crease that the 67/68 models did not share. Based on that, I'm going to guess 69/70. I believe they changed up the look of the tailgate lettering for the 71/72 years.

    black Dodge van behind red truck. Which I can't decide if it is an IH or a Dodge.

    the white truck at far left, front I think is an International.
