Hey, how about parking your collector car outside today?

Recommended Posts

I live in the St. Croix River Valley, the border area between Wisconsin and Minnesota. Often on Sundays there is lots of tourist traffic on our area streets as is the case today. Since these “rubberneckers” like to drive by slow and look up the driveways I thought I would give them something to look at beside my dormant grass. Sooooo, I parked my Model A out in the driveway to give the gawkers something good to look at. Maybe some of you would do the same as there will be many walkers out and about. It could give us all something to show and talk about if anyone stops and it is not hard to keep social distance outside.
Looking up my driveway......park your car outside and post a picture to show us what we would see peeking up your driveway!

Does this count?

My project that I should sell.

Drove the MH in there (no title but the 440 runs)

The COE does have the correct title.

I’d love too, but my ‘57 Skyliner is at @JACK M’s as he is trying to sort out an issue with the engine wanting to stall. Darndest thing as it drove like a top the first day out this year, then the next day it didn’t want to stay running. 😢

We've become known as a good car spotting location--whenever I buy a car I try to drive it home to get a feel for it.

It hasn't been parked much but has definitely been out. I have loved watching people's smiles.

Just recently someone walked by while I was holding my own personal car show. By myself.
 

They stopped and asked a couple questions. It was nice to see a few people from the neighborhood. When I answered “It’s a 1938 Plymouth”, they were surprised it had survived all those years.

But since I live at the very end of a cul-de-sac there won't be any drive by traffic to speak of.

Check the thread on AntiqueCars, this year and beyond. We've had a few impromptu antique car shows crop up in parking lots. I had some one car parades around the neighborhood and feel like we brought lots of smiles to people.

Postwar for now.  We are almost ready for annual Spring rite of hardtop removal.  The A is still undergoing front end work, conveniently blocking in some lawn and garden gear! 😉

I live way out in farm country & our road is not really even wide enough for two pickups to pass comfortably at speed. We maybe get 5-10 cars per hour during the busy hours. When one or more of mine are outside, they are close to 300 ft from the road, so the only folks that notice them are ones like us!

 

God Bless

I can park one of the old cars in the driveway all day and have never had anyone stop. They're all in a big hurry to get someplace. Nice view from the driveway though.

Taken quite a while ago, but still plenty good! This leaky,creaky Studebaker of mine has impressed a lot of people before due to its "not-a-TriFive-Chevy-ness" as well as just being a really neat thing that it has survived this long.

The village I live in will fine you for parking between the house and the street. And traffic ticket income is way down. Too risky.

This was on it's way to the driveway from storage today but has a drive line vibration so it needs someone to diagnose properly. So next week, maybe? 

I know, I know, that 1973 mandated front bumper is ugly!
