Spring Pics- Shine 'em up and show 'em off!!!

Well I pulled the 930 out of the garage today for a little spring cleaning and I was surprised by a visit from good friend and fellow pelican with his shiny '69. After a bit of detailing an artistic photo session ensued....well ok...it was really a couple of dorks trying to figure out their cameras. Most pics are too large in size to post here so I uploaded them as thumbs. Let's see yours. If it snows where you live driving season is finally here- it's time to polish 'em up and show 'em off!

Took this one a couple of weeks ago. The trees are now greening up and the flowers are popping. Gotta love spring!

Jay, not sure what grey your car is (meteor?) but it looks fantastic in that color!

Thanks John- I'm not sure either! I like it too. I'm waiting for some 9/11 x 17" Fuchs replicas (Rota Fox or a forged set that another Pelican is working on) in RSR finish...then she will be complete!

Just love your car MT930! And Rarly, same goes with your red rocket! It's way past the start of springtime in SW Arizona...Already in the 80's.

Jay,

Thanks, Jay! Those are way old 17" OZ Fittipaldi's. Unfortunately, they don't make them, anymore...So, I gotta be careful with these.

Hah!!! I drove mine all winter...snow & all...oh and by the way, these things really suck in the snow. Also, anything more than 2" of snow and then I'm just a snow plow!

It won't be long at this rate and they will be! I let more air out of the rear tires and want to try 'em out to see if they have a little more traction.

Someone today said my car sounded like a lawn mower.
