As seen on the road.

Sometimes you can see some interesting stuff on the road. Post yours up.

How fast did you speed up to get the pictures?

You are right about seeing things when your out for a drive. I stated carrying my camera but I found I need a larger telephoto lens, Cars on trailers are rare where I'm at, but I do see a lot of wildlife, which I like to take pictures of.

I like to take pictures of younger girls in small bikinis, but they are rarer than cars on trailers.

I caught them because they were going slow, I was empty and I had the cruise set just about the speed limit.

I did see a girl in a bikini the other day, looked good! She was sunning herself on the deck of her house. I usually look that place over pretty good since they have some interesting rides that seem to come and go. They have a 60's Rambler American 2-door hardtop that is red with a white top and has chrome wheels with baby moons that somebody seems to use as a daily driver. That's enough to sell me that the occupants are pretty cool but there is a pretty sweet looking 80's Malibu that is usually in the garage. There was a VW Thing hanging around there but I haven't seen it in a while. Recently a 80's Mustang GT convertible showed up. I assume it had rear end problems since they had it jacked up in the drive and that seemed to be what they were working on. It's now sitting in the garage next to the Malibu. That's why I usually take a good look at that place when I drive by, not looking for girls in bikinis.

Up hereb on the dark side, I have to go to one of the lakes to see any bikinis, the houses are set back from the roads that you can't see them, plus they are too far apart.

I get to view babes in bikinis several times a year here. Usually not in the winter though.

The Peterbilt hood adds CLASS to the photos, the car is nice too though

Did you get the air flow problem figured out?

Nice!


There are 2 Chevys I think they are around 1942 models at least one is a 2 door, 2 Late 50's Ford pickups an AMC Hornet (I think) sitting north of this quonset. Looks like an F20 IH off to the side.

...I know, then you get all tangled and cut-up in raspberry stickers, briars and stuff...

I pulled my '68 Nova out of muskeg and weeds in Talkeetna, AK, gave him $600.00 and took away all brand new glass, two extra fenders and hoods. It wasn't a candidate for restoration, so I back-halfed it and went pro street. I could barely see it from the road on the way to Fairbanks one day, seems our types have a way of seeing those things, even if just a flash out of the corner of the eye!

Yes I do, you have to be careful in the raspberries as the bear like them also, and at my age I wouldn't put up much of a fight, and I sure couldn't out run one.

I don't drive truck, but I have my wife drive when we go down the road that way I can look on both sides of the road.
