Thanks for blowing that up.  I can attach but have yet to figure out how to do so in the larger size.

 

You may enjoy this one too.

Cruising down dirt roads in a car of that vintage must transport you back in time...

 

Absolutely.  That is the roads that I enjoy driving the truck on most.  Just like going back in time.

Interesting comment.

 

Everyone who rides in it can't beleive how well it rides, especially on dirt roads, and rides best with 4 people in it.  No rattles either.  Buick had it figured out even back then.

 

I'm certain the large tire diameter has lots to do with it but there are no 'shocks', just the internal friction of the leafs for dampening.

 

This is Tipsico Lake Road, so old and narrow at most points with high wooded sides you have to nearly stop to let the oncoming person squeeze by.

Some awesome pics guys!

 

Leaves are fading fast after high winds and rain but got a parting shot today on a trip to Wally world for some supplies.

Another bonus day today. Can't be many of them left for this season.

Looks very nice John... also looks like the new springs are starting to settle down a bit, or maybe you just filled the gas tank!

Thanks Doug. But they are not setting in at all.  If possible, I will probably install matching springs up front after the winter.

About as much 'color' as we get around here (go ahead and laugh!) :D

It was almost 60deg F here in Michigan today and planned on going out for a drive but it started raining.  :-(

Unfortunately, its that time of year again, but there are a few remaining nice days to get the cars out.  Mine get put away and driven sparingly in the winter, so I got the Electra out to burn off some old gas and top off the tank with non-ethanol 94 octane for the winter.  A couple of pictures from down the street.
