Just fucked that car all up. Mr Dean didn't fare too well either.

Some people are cheering Global Warming thinking this will be a thing of the past. Boy are they in for a surprise.

Seinfeld's car had star power added to the value and still got ten million less than Gooding predicted. The one that didn't sell was "non operational".

Fairly interesting read in wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegaso

Drove by the muscle car guy and caught a couple:

This LTD made me think of the one Burt Reynolds drives in "Gator" "White Lightning", but, I think his was older. And brown.

This one is just cherry:

While I was taking the pic of the LTD, a customer drove up in this old Rally Nova with factory sunroof:

The first car I can remember driving in was a ford Ltd. I think that was the car my mom had when I was born. White. With a black vinyl simcon top. I closed one of the doors on my fingers just as we arrived at a carnival one day. That was a panic. Missed the carnival. Just one of many trips to the ER for young Jimmy.

Baby blue, vinyl top, four door, LTD? Grandpa citizen car, soccer-mom before there was soccer, trade for a minivan, drop me a block from school before somebody sees us, so uncool it's warm. :yelsick:

My first car was a 1977 Ford LTD Brougham. Painted silver by the previous owner via Krylon cans and it had the blue top. Didn't even make it home before dying.

I spent a long time cursing my father for talking me out of the Camaro and into this heap. Once I got a bit older and wiser, I realized that I would surely have crashed the Camaro within the first year. I also realized that I now was capable of most any minor to intermediate repair on a car due to my father having taught me how to repair that junker, one breakdown at a time. Now, I bless his wisdom, although I never got around to telling him so.

One of my few regrets in life.
