You sure that's not a little rye in that cup?

Since we don't have to drive home from the show, 

some adult Beveridge wouldn't be the worst idea.

Rye is good, but personally, I prefer just a dash or two (sometimes three) of rum in my coffee while contemplating my modest collection of old cars.  They're all works of art to me, and I marvel at the genius of the design and manufacture involved in even the most so-called "simple" vehicles.  Like Chris Bamford, I've spent many a happy hour in my garage just looking at my cars. 

 

Stay healthy out there.

 

Cheers,

Grog

I've certainly done similar lately. I had my own car show in the driveway last Saturday.  Wednesday evening I took a rye out to my dark garage. I sat in my '38 with the dash lights on and dreamed about it being  an earlier time. Decades earlier when the old car was someones shiny new car.

 

Seen here, a photo from Saturday. I had them both running in the driveway. I smiled and was rewarded for my efforts while listening to them purr.

a) Jameson's and a bit of Bailey's is what fortifies coffee.

b) All of my battery tenders are in use

b2) Battery sales may go through the roof after.

c) To have a view like that I'd have to move more than a few wheels.

These photos are great!  I no longer own any old real cars but cars but I still have cars out in the garage that need some fix ups and repair.  After that I make impromptu car shows with them.  This was last weeks show.  It’s a comfort to stay connected here with with all of you as we collectively give support to keep ourselves from going crazy. (If I’m making car shows from toy cars maybe it’s too late for me going off the deep end😀).

Not the issue here-

The coming 10 days:

Highs in the 80 - 86 range with a 90 expected mid next-week

Lows in the 66 - 76 range

 

Wishing all a moderate time,

and safe environment

Today is MUCH warmer and I was actually enjoying the garage.

Weather was clear, roads were dry, air was semi-warm (55 degrees), traffic was light.

 

Yeah, that's just about perfect for 16 cylinders' worth of entertainment. Burned about a half-tank of gas in the Marmon this morning shooting video footage (among other things).

Turn the thermostat up or move south like many of us did.  I keep a bottle of single malt available to fortify my coffee cup, no coffee.  Wife could never understand why I had to have a comfortable recliner in my shop
