Itís a beautiful day, playing hooky is option A
« on: June 18, 2018, 11:50:33 AM »
Since I have gone back to work at my old company 20 hours a week from home I get a chance to look at the window and see the outside. Itís a beautiful day, a little warm perhaps, with a few overhead clouds and a light breeze. Since I can pick my hours to work, I pick not to work today and take the car for a ride. I going to follow the ďold roadĒ that twists and turns down through the county I live in to the end, itís about 60 miles to the end. I may come back on the new road, but itís just too nice a day to work, and I hear the roads calling me to enjoy the day
Owned since 1971, driven over 235,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Awesome Steve, I wish I could join you for that ride for sure!

But between the Thursday night cruise-in at the Green Turtle, Friday taking my daughter to school, Saturday night at the cruise-in in Marley Station and finally Sunday morning Cars and Coffee in Annapolis I have had a lot of behind the wheel time this past weekend.

Sounds like the perfect way to commute to and from work all at the same time.  Employee road trip.

That would be correct... Fuel,cartage,and milage are all part of doing business ;) In a SHELBY or not.

Bunch of us worked about 2/3 day today and drove roughly an hour each way to big car show.
Couple Shelby vehicles were there and some factory AF/X stuff and tons of TRI-5 Bowties including a Nomad wagon etc.

Sometimes the road calls
