Curbside Outtake: A Warm Fall Day Brings Out the Classics

Yesterday was an unseasonably warm fall day here in the Middle West, the kind that usually brings out the classics. Today did not disappoint, and I was able to quickly snap a couple of photos of this 1983 Avanti II at a traffic light…

My beater farm truck wasn’t up to the task of keeping up with the Avanti, but hardly three minutes later I was passed by an AC Cobra (I don’t know them well enough to know whether it was original or a replica), and then spotted a “supercar” (maybe a Ferrari, not sure) across the highway median. I also noticed a late ’60s Pontiac GTO at a filling station when I came off at my exit.

In the bed of my truck were parts for our ’62 and ’63 Volkswagens. Since I had just picked them up from the sandblaster’s, I guess I can “technically” count myself among those other classics out enjoying a beautiful fall day.
