Yes, come join us in flyover country!
Since Ford assumed major sponsorship 15 or so years ago its become a late-model Mustang fest with token nods to the Sixties cars for "heritage" purposes. But despite the fact the owners are still making payments on half the cars in attendance, there's always enough spectacular early iron and like-minded enthusiasts to make it worthwhile.

Here's some interesting badge placement:

Side note: Parnelli Jones tires!

Yes, I remember seeing the '04 concept and thinking "THAT will sell." Naturally nothing came of it. One of many questionable decisions by FoMoCo management in the mid-2000s.

This thread seems like an appropriate home for this picture, even if the car is a brand X.

Well,I have a car for sail,butI am not really sure if I want to cell it...... :o

That at least sounds right when you read it. It's the "Good used truck for sell." and "Make an offer. Must sale quick." ads that drive me nuts.

I have no problem with the death penalty for the folks who use "sell" for "sale" and vice-versa in their Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace posts.

Not the correct tire for a '66 Shelby, but still the most vintage appearing RWL radial I'm aware of:

I've always been a Ford guy, but they are testing my loyalty by calling a four-door SUV a Mustang and an electric motor a Cobra Jet.

Thanks Richard. I enjoyed that.

My '69 GT500 sportsroof, 4-speed, no a/c, built 06/06/69, had pink and gold stripes on the front springs. FWIW.

A few things to unpack here:
Regarding the health effects, a number of individuals and organizations have made a variety of alarming claims about 5G, for varied reasons, but none are based on any competent scientific evidence. I won't go into all the details about why these claims are unfounded, but here's a good explanation for anyone interested:
As for the FOIA request, good luck, but it probably won't do much good. It's out of local government's hands. The Feds have decreed that Telecoms may deploy their 5G technology in existing rights-of-way, including installing the necessary equipment on existing poles and public infrastructure, and cities and counties aren't allowed to say no, or even enact a temporary moratorium to study the best way to implement the roll-out of 5G in their community. The National League of Cities and others fought the FCC long and hard to retain local control, but the Telecom lobby is far more powerful (read better funded) than the local government lobby.
I wouldn't expect to see many 40-foot towers for 5G though. In most jurisdictions, structures of that height will require building permits the FCC are powerless to override. That will usually require notification to surrounding property owners, publication of legal notice, and a public hearing of some sort. All of which add delay and uncertainty which the wireless providers would prefer to avoid. Accordingly, most 5G equipment has been designed specifically to be compact enough to permit installation on existing poles or towers, or if new poles are needed, they'll typically be the size and height of standard telephone poles, avoiding the need for city or county permits. Any larger towers will likely be only as a last resort where no other viable alternatives exist.
But as far as their ability to put up smaller towers and equipment boxes in existing rights-of-way, and the potential negative effects on property values that may have, that's all accurate. It won't do any harm to talk to your local planning and engineering department representatives to see what insights they may have, but I'll pretty much guarantee they're just as frustrated by it as anyone.

Dartmouth College is in New Hampshire, and their school colors are green and white. I don't know what the "A" would stand for (Alumni Association? College of Arts & Science?) but I'm guessing there's a connection.
