Patina Week Outtake: A New Arrival In My Neck Of The Woods

CC 196 129 900

I’m pretty intimate with the more actively-used CCs on the streets around my part of town. Some disappear, others show up, like this charming Fox-Cougar four-door. It’s more of a beater than a patina-mobile, but the paint is getting there, as well as the top. A couple of young guys are out and about in it quite a lot, and drive it hard. That doesn’t mean exactly fast, as it obviously has the 200 six, due to its bleating and belabored exhaust. Sometimes sixes don’t sound all that great, especially when they’ve been strangled, and are pushing against an automatic. More like tortured than anything else.
