Default What I did in the weekend

Hi everyone!

Let's see if we can keep this thread going with regular posts, hopefully it'll grow!

I've been reading your posts about summer and how hot it is in places around the US at the moment. I guess this is when a lot of you'll be making the most of your Tbirds and getting out and about to shows and events.

Please post pics of what you've been up, along with a brief description - doesn't matter if you took your car to the mall or went on a weekend road trip, lets see your photos!

Try and make them as scenic as possible so we can see the car and the surroundings.

It's Monday here, our weekend's over. My son Brad and I went on a road trip to a big car show and swap meet at Palmerston North, which worked out at just over 1000 miles total. It's the middle of winter here, sub zero temperatures and the area where these photos were taken (State Highway One, the main route that runs the length of NZ) is sometimes closed due to ice and snow. Man it was cold.

The other cars with my '62 were Donna and Steve's Malibu, and Paula and Terry's Duster.

Bring it on!

Alistair

Default Nice Bird ...

Love the stance and the colors and the hubcaps are perfect. Very sleak machine. Mine is in the shop right now getting a number of upgrades. Hoping to have it hoping to have it back on the road soon.

Stunning photography work Alistair!
I was a bit stunned to see your bird setting so close to the road however...do you have hydraulics when yer driving?

Adored the Duster as well, I had bought one for my eldest to work on, but after took for a fun ride and tore the exhaust off on RR tracks decided that indeed he needed more time before having a vehicle...

This is a delightful idea, Thanks for suggesting it!

I myself have nothing to add...was sanding and priming a file cabinet, trimming trees, weeds and cleaning the cat boxes...

Cool

Allistair thanks for the pixs as they look fantastic with the backdrop of the mountains with the snow and nice looking wheels.

Unfortunately, the car is in the garage amongst construction debris and not really accessable, so it didn't come out this past weekend. Besides, it rained.

But, this is what I did do:



That's me and my 3 girls at a church father daughter dance.

What a great picture, Doug! Ya know, sometimes there are a lot better things to do than playing with our old cars... Especially when you cant do anything with them at the time. I am sure your daughters are going to remember that time spent with Dad for a long time.

For about the last 10 years, since Faye passed away, I have made it a habit to "date" my grandchildren that live here in San Antonio. Every week, I take them to supper, usually on Friday nights. The things you learn by sitting there and listening to them talk! The things they can learn from you are important also. When I am with my other grandchildren that live out of town, I "date" them also by taking them some place special, sometimes to eat, sometimes to do something else. I am building memories with them, and them with me. So keep building those memories! You have three great looking girls there!
