Just thought that I'd add this photo of my '38 that I took last fall, just as I was putting it away for the soon to arrive Michigan winter. Love Michigan in the fall, but hate to see what follows.

From Remembrance Day, 2009. This is one of my favourite photos and serves as a background on one of the computers.

Of course, around here, we get a fair amount of wind, so once the leaves are ready to fall, they get blown off, so getting a nicer colour shot is more challenging.

post-70733-143142230422_thumb.jpgHere's what fall looks like in the Rockies.

Looking west to Mt. Princeton (14,200') on the continental divide, from our front yard.

We're only at 8500'.

That is such a great photo Mike. I love it!

Here's one I just snapped today, in the midst of the Catskills.

Nice Photo JD. However, the Catskills in no way compare to the mountians in the West. There is snow on them there hills in July and August. In fact it never seems to go away. 90 F in the valleys, and cold enough to keep the snow on the peaks every season. I want to go back...Specially to the Hot Springs out there. Dandy Dave!

Berta, I was on Route 10 between Cobbleskill and Delhi, about ten miles south of Cobbleskill. I should have taken a wide angle shot here but it probably would not have helped cause there is nothing but this view for 180 degrees at this spot. I'll have to check those mountains Dave mentions next summer. Meantime today was a beautiful day here and I found a spot to snap these

Nice. And the 56 is out Front... :cool: JD, when you get out West, you will be dazzeled. Expecially if you take Rt. 80 though Donners Pass. Given the terrain in that area, those folks were really determined. Even building the modern highway was quite an undertaking. Be sure you have no less than excellent brakes. A lot of places it is best to down shift and let the motor hold you back. Truck pulloffs are every few miles so that they can cool their brakes off. Passed by an 18 wheeler being winched out of a ravine. It did not look good for the driver. Dandy Dave!

Beautiful pictures. Maybe Mr. Earl will photoshop Terry in there for his screensaver, and we can all use it ???????

Kevin,

A great looking "Cat". I think that metallic bronze is the same color that my '65 Riv was. Always loved that car. Even @ 9mpg.

I'm driving my 56' every day until I can't because of bad weather! Sure is nice to have her out on the road finally! Here is another shot or two. One with the 47' being wetsanded in the background and another of a shot I took on the way home today! Pays to take the "long" way sometimes.
