I was out the other day (not in a Shelby product) and saw this unique pair of street signs.

I guess someone who developed this area in San Diego was a big CS fan.

Probably more so a fan of the Canyon......

Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

The weather has been rainy all year so far, lol.  I did get out for my first ride today.  I really do hope we get to enjoy some auto enthusiast camaraderie this year.

Thanks Rich - yes, it was open sunroof weather.

One of the (many) things I love about this G is the power antenna out back.
