Today was unseasonably nice here in N.E. Ohio -- upper 60's, blue sky nice. My buddy stores his 2004 Cobra convertible in my garage every winter, so he brought it over today. I drove him home in my '69 with the top down. Actually, I let him drive it home and I drove it back. We both got a bit aggressive, you might say, and had some fun.
Later, back to reality, it was time to clean up after Sandy and get the yard-work done. I had to get some gas for the tractor, and while I'm at the gas station, a raven black '66 convertible pulls in next to me to fill up. I tell the owner I have a black '69; he replies he bought his new and it only has 43K miles on it. Nice. Told him he beat me, I bought mine from the first owner in 1974. And, to top it all off, I got the yard cleaned up.....
It's always nice to get a day with the top down in November. We had ours out all day yesterday with the top down. It was sunny and 75. Today is a little different, it's tucked away in the garage and it's cold, rainy and currently 32 degrees with lows in the 20s tonight. Glad I took advantage of it yesterday.
65 convertible, 289 C code, C4 automatic, Wimbledon white, red interior.
Yep, the weather in the Pitt area was perfect this weekend also. Too bad I had the convertible put away last week. But I did get the Mach out for a nice 30 mile drive! Won't put it away until the last minute (maybe a few more weeks).
