Pics from southern Indiana

Pics from southern Indiana

Roamed a bit yesterday and today, some of my favorites.

Windshield down makes photos so much easier, and topless means I can stand inside for better angles. (This is why I first had the idea of buying a Jeep, many long years ago.)

Finally, my route this evening.

#Protip (and other random thoughts)

#Protip (and other random thoughts)

Hint: if you’re going so slowly on the interstate that you get passed by a Jeep with the windshield down, you should speed up a bit. Words of wisdom for the day.

I was behind a Ram pickup yesterday with the letters in chrome on the tailgate. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it looked on a sunny day. A nice convex curve so the sky reflects in the top half, the ground in the bottom. Don’t...

David Cone’s perfect game

David Cone’s perfect game

I don’t follow baseball at all, and I’m definitely not a Yankees fan, but this is a really good look back at a magical game. The Yogi Berra connection really sells it.

I’ve never cared enough about German cars to, well, care. Every time I see the Mercedes-Benz logo I have to mentally picture BMW’s logo in order to remember which manufacturer it belongs to. (Yes, I’m really that oblivious.)

A car like this could make me rethink. It looks a wee bit awkward to me with that ragtop, but I wouldn’t have it on very often when I’m driving. Damn that’s a sweet car....

CoFL has me looking on CL and this struck me as very interesting. Surely someone here would want a closer look.

Wanderlust

Wanderlust

Now that I have my Jeep back, just in time for Memorial Day weekend, I decided to take a drive. I threw some clothes into a waterproof bag (no top, no doors, fair bit of rain this weekend) and started south with no firm destination in mind.

I really, genuinely regret not having a dash cam. Driving through Brown County in southern Indiana, there were several classic cars out cruising. My...

Oil prices

Oil prices

As a Jeep owner, of course I appreciate cheaper gas prices. As someone worried about the future of the planet, of course I think gas should be more expensive. As someone worried about a recession, I don’t know what to think of the slowdown.

Anyway, discussion of where oil prices may be headed and Saudi Arabia’s obvious concern.

David’s en route

David’s en route

For anyone interested but not watching FP. David Tracy is on his way in his postal Jeep. He hadn’t as of last update gotten out of Ohio yet and Easter Jeep Safari starts tomorrow, so I’m curious whether he’ll get to Moab in time to participate.

ID?

ID?

I saw this yesterday. Unfortunately my photo is from slightly too far away to read the model (I’m fairly confident it isn’t a Montero, which is the only near-match I could think of) so I turn to the great hive mind for assistance.

Severe thunderstorm warning. Tornado watch. And I’m a fair pace from home hiding in a Subway.

I mean, sure, I could put the top on, I suppose.

150k club

150k club

I noticed two high-mileage Toyota sedans on CL tonight, one of which touted it as “only” 192k (and to be fair, it looks very clean and for a Toyota that might well be a reasonable adjective), and I wondered what I’d find if I searched for 150k and up vehicles.

This is by far the most interesting I found on the first page: a 1998 Montero. Sadly the roof rack doesn’t come with.

What’s interesting...

Granted, I doubt I can drive anything without power steering until I significantly strengthen my back, but still a charming video.

Interesting yard I passed on the way home. Can’t tell you what any of these are, really.

Sad to say, but if I had a Scrambler to trade, I’d do it in a heartbeat. What a stunning car.
