Hi GarryRF I totally agree with your comment. Pink would not have been the color I would have chosen for the Mustang, but it still was a beauty to gaze at and admire. On a side note, I had to laugh out loud when I read the license plate on the "Barracuda" which essentially reads "You are fish bait". Yes, viewing these amazing cars is great fun. I hope you enjoy my last two blogs on "Cruise Night" which I believe are to be posted on September 2 (Cars from the 1960's Part 2) and September 9...

Yes - I noticed the plates on the Mustang Ottoman. Sometimes you just look at a picture - and think - that's just not right ! Like photos of mans best friend, his dog, Dressed as a cowboy with a bandana and a Stetson hat ! Makes my toes curl up. Cringe worthy ! So I've put Sept 2nd in my diary. "The arrival of Ottomans Masterpieces ... and Hurricane Cristobal" What a fun day !

Hi GarryRF! I do hope that by the time Hurricane Cristobal reaches the UK it will be nothing more than a weak tropical storm. Here's hoping Cristobal misses you altogether and that the only thing that should "blow you away" on September 2 is my "Cruise Night" blog (ya ya I know...really bad joke, right?). Take care of yourself and stay safe. Let us know how you weather this looming storm.

Re: A stroll through the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, Vail

Does winter arrive early in these gardens ? Is that due to the elevation? Does it remain cool in the Summer too ? I'm thinking of the likes of Mexico City where it should be tropical but its elevation keeps it cool all year. Lovely photos of the Flora and Gardens. Was it really that empty ?

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for the comments, Garry. Yes, winter arrives early because of the very high altitude. Over a mile and a half above sea level. Summers are very nice -- warm (75-80F) dry pleasant days (no humidity to speak off), and it always cools down nicely at night, so most places don't even have air conditioning. It really was that empty. No more than 6 folks in the garden including my wife and I, and of course not counting the hundreds of birds flying about.

Hi Garry RF You are correct in assuming there are more cars. Actually, my next "Cruise Night" blog will be published tomorrow (Tuesday, August 12/14) featuring five cars from the 1930's. That blog will be followed in a few days or weeks with another "Cruise Night" blog featuring cars from the 1940's and 1950's, which will be followed in another few days or weeks with another "Cruise Night" blog or two featuring cars from the 1960's, which will be followed in another few days or weeks with...

Thanks for the compliment GarryRF. Please feel free to come back and enjoy these photos as often as you'd like. I too have viewed them many times, and if I haven't worn them out by now, I don't think you have to worry. Stay tuned for my next blog...Cruise Night, the 1940's and 1950's (to be published Tuesday August 19/14), which will feature five cars from these two decades. I hope you will enjoy them. I gotta run. I have some "bits and bobs" that need tending to (LOL).

I don't think Rob Ford had anything to do with it. Toronto, like any major city in the world, has enough variety of things to see and do to entertain anyone for a week. Our best wishes to Mr. Ford who is dealing with a malignant soft tissue tumor.

I suppose it would be rude to ask the owner if that was the final colour ! Looks like primer but ...hmm.... Certainly looks a beauty either way. So much attention being lavished on something so old. Oh I wish !

From time to time I have a dream that I've left my old car parked somewhere. It's never clear whether it's the 2-tone (also gray - very snappy) '51 Pontiac with a sun visor, or the '53 Plymouth, but if I could just remember where it is, it's there waiting for me.
