One of the things I love about this town, is that the mechanic is walking distance away. With both of us driving rather old vehicles (me an ’08 Ford, Dave an ’04 Buick), we’ve quickly made good friends with the team at the shop. And it’s nice that after I drop Dory off, I can easily walk home.
Dave also loves the fact that they work on REALLY old cars. (A few days after the Charger came home, she went right over there so they could do a brake upgrade). In fact, they also restore them, and sell them at their car lot just down the street.
So the other day, I decided to take my walk over there to get some pictures for you all.
Not only do they have my absolute FAVOURITE classic…. a Ford Galaxie Convertible…
But they also have an old Ford Truck.
It doesn’t matter what year, or what colour. I love old Ford trucks.
If I ever win the lottery, one of the first things I will do is march right over there and buy both these beauties.
And if there’s any money left over, I might just grab this Packard, and the Mustang II.
And don’t tell Dave, but I’d probably buy this z28 Camaro too.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Trans Ams, Firebirds, and Camaros… the first two he agrees with, but he always turns his nose up at the Camaro.
Of course, I haven’t won the lottery, so I have to just look and enjoy. And it looks like there will be more beauties to come, as there are several other vehicles on the lot, awaiting their glow up.
I’m especially looking forward to seeing the restoration of those two Thunderbirds (another favourite!)
