VictoriaLynn, that's a beautiful car in beautiful settings.  Where in Oregon?  I have a stepson and his family in Ashland, but since I'm in NJ I don't get out there very often.

I live In Yamhill County. Near McMinnville which is the heart of the wine country. About an hour west of Portland. Half way from Portland to the beach at Lincoln City. Beautiful area.

Victorialynn2, I bought my 1956 chevy truck from a couple in Hillsboro just west of Portland back in 2001, I had it shipped to michigan, the truck lived most of its life in that area.  Some day we will get out that way, I here it is nice.

I bought this 55 Desoto in McMinnville. And the flying Hudson happened just outside of Banks.

Lots of nice cars in this area and they don’t salt the roads here. 

 

Someday I need to post the pics of my dad’s Hudson’s for you he used to have. Looked just like yours Xander.

Grey barn is Shadwell farm owned by the sheikh of Dubai The white barn is Manchester farm just behind the famous Calumet farm. That barn has about 20 horse stalls. When I die I want to come back as a thoroughbred race horse.

No cars in these but these were some of the sights here a couple weeks ago.

Things quickly got drab.

The first photo is looking south of my driveway.

The other two are at the mill pond here in town which is currently being drained for a big reconstruction project which has been in the making for years.

Nothing like our second Glidden Tour @ Bretton Woods NH in 1998 !  Toured a week in this color photo.   Sometimes we get this here, after Nov. first.

Ah, I grew up in the little NH town of Goffstown. I miss NH. Bus loads of people used to pull over across the street in the fall to take pics of our Colonial with big Maple Trees and a stone wall driveway and also the Victorian next door. I could never understand why back then.

I took a picture just for you guys this afternoon.  There are 2 months of the year that make it worth while living in New England.  September and October.  Sometimes the first couple of weeks of Nov too.  Otherwise, not so much...

Those colors will definitely do just fine.  Beautiful!

Thank you, Victorialynn for starting this post and for everyone's sharing.  It's great to see beautiful cars in autumn settings.

 

The two pictures of my beloved 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado were taken in October 1999 in Harrriman State Park.  Harriman State Park

The park is about an hour north of NYC on the west side of the Hudson and a bit south of West Point Academy.  I hiked there for many years when we lived in that part of the country.

The Olds was my daily driver for 28 years and 200,000 miles.  I do miss The Queen Mary's styling inside and out but I don't miss driving a sofa alongside today's distracted drivers.

 

The other pictures were taken last week on Mount Lemmon (8000') in Tucson, AZ.  We do have deciduous tress in the desert...!

 

Enjoy...! 

 

Paul

Regarding those concrete walls:  I don't know for sure but I suspect they were part of a now defunct water storage facility.  Also

in this area are partially exposed old galvanized water pipes on the ground and small concrete junction boxes.  It's all very curious.

A bit farther down the "road", there are two huge water storage tanks (each is ~212,000 gallons / according to the data plates).

Wells are part of that facility too.  The larger of the two "houses" between the tanks is the pump house / chlorination station...

Attached are last year's pictures of the big water tanks.  They supply most of the water for the Mount Lemmon community.
