Ed, you know, I try never to just blend in. If a task can be made more difficult and the outcome more distinctive, I’m a sucker everytime. Glad you and others appreciate the extra effort.

I've got that Silver w/ black vinyl interior 65 Gran Sport. Pretty typical.  When it gets moved to the front burner, I'm going to go with the black fabric seats and look for a set of the Gran Sport wheel covers like yours.  Don't want another one just like the other one. What would it look like with red line tires? Or do I do black walls or triple stipes? 

 

Non-compliance is one reason I'm perfectly content to drive a '94 Roadmaster Estate wagon.  Probably get twice as many comments on it as the guys driving their new Camaros get.  Plus I'm getting spoiled "Driving the Lazy Boy leather covered couch" down the highway.

 

I don't know if he still has it but a guy I know has/had a Sedanette powered by a '455 with a TH400 behind it.  With the steel wheels and Buick dog dish caps, it was a real sleeper.

 

Which car are you taking to Gettysburg?

We’re driving the convertible up from Tampa. Along the coast we’ll get our fill of oysters in Savanna and Charleston and on the return we'll go through the mountains to Asheville and Atlanta to visit grandkids

When we met in Harrisburg in '10, Linda and I went back via the mountains.  It was a great drive and very scenic.  Except for when that underpowered 5.0 liter Olds motored 84 coupe of mine couldn't get uphill.  We got as far south as TN and KY before heading west towards home.  We visited Gettysburg then and explored the area pretty thoroughly.  Don't know if we want to repeat again this year.  Going the same place twice just isn't in my makeup.  Too many stones yet unturned.

Lovely—are the 1965 and the 1966 both Turquoise Mist?

Hi and thanks!  The 65 is Turquoise Mist;   The 66 is Aqua Mist.  They are nearly identical in  color - but the 66 is just a bit more blue in it.  Thanks for your inquiry!

New coffee mugs for The Aqua Zephyr!

Created by a good friend of mine who does this kind of craft work as a side job.

I’m visiting the northern Rivs this week. So far, the boat tail started right up and sounded pretty good. I’ll try another one tomorrow

New Diamondback triple stripe whitewall 235/75-15 tires and new stainless steel lug nuts installed on The Aqua Zephyr today. I like how the taller tires fill the wheel wells more than the old tires.

New tires before I washed the protective coating off.

Hey! All 3 started right up and ran just fine. And I just discovered that my Max Trac still works. Anyone else have a working Max Trac in their boat tail?
