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: Visiting John Steinbeck country. 3) Cannery Row, Monterey, California

PortMoresby ·
I first visited Cannery Row in 1964, on a trip from the Bay Area in my '53 Plymouth with friends, going to the Monterey Folk Festival. We slept free on the floor of a room in the Monterey Hotel of someone we met and generally had the kind of fun kids had in the mid-'60s. At that time Cannery Row looked not unlike the photo at the top, and nothing like it does today. It's the same old story for old-timers everywhere, it ain't what it was, if you're a fan of funky, as I am. The difference, in...

Can't be certain, because it gets fuzzy when blown up, but the shape and proportion look right to me for a 1948 Plymouth. Anyone else?

Re: Spotted on the Road: 1954 Meteor

PortMoresby ·
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.
