Monday, Monday.  Took the Mustang to a show Sat afternoon, it was somewhere around 105 with the heat index, so the shade was very handy.  A decent breeze, and cool non-adult beverages made it tolerable.  It was only the 2nd year this group did a car show, so they don't understand that having it from noon to 6pm is gonna be ridiculous.  I debuted the new gold air cleaner that day.  Took the top of the chrome breather I've got, scuffed it a bit, and put 5 coats of gold engine enamel on it, and it looks better.  Matches the valve covers.  Credit to the guy over at VMF that I borrowed the idea from.  Engine compartment was left a mess by the painter, so after I get it cleaned up again, I'll get some new pics.  The heat was so bad that all the car got was a dust off with a California Duster, and the windshield and back window got a quick wipe down (and they were bloody hot).  Didn't even consider doing any detailing.  I'm giving thought to where I want to take it to get some really nice pics taken now that it's done (at least from a visual perspective).  Gonna have to borrow a bud's camera since he's got a nice DSLR and I've just got a simple point and shoot.

Doc, do you have any old abandon gas stations around ya? Or maybe cool looking old warehouses? Just a thought. :thumbsup:

He is the guy who would always post what he was eating that day.....   The Lobby.  I might have chosen The Pub, but The Lobby works.  Out for a drive this AM with a friend..... quite the spectacl

Took one pic of the new ride when we got it home.  Awaiting a few mods in the mail. I’ll get some more when they’re all done.  This car is amazing. It’s a lot like my Boss. ‘Course, that’s what

Facebook..... you won't ever catch me on there.  Not to mention their questionable ethics... This is as close to social media as I get both professionally and personally.

Abandoned gas stations: yes.  Old: no (at least none that I'm aware of).  Warehouses, yup, a few of those from way back in the day, but not in the part of town I'd be willing to drive the Mustang to.  I'm hoping to get a picture of it with a real Mustang when we do our show, if we can figure out the logistics for where to put the horses, and a place to park the car, and a way to hide the wrangler.  That would be a really cool picture.  I've thought about just hanging some curtains inside the garage and doing it in there.  I figure the idea will come to me at some point just like they always do.  But thanks for the ideas, that gives me a few other things to be on the lookout for.  An old gas station with the old style pumps would be a cool setting.

 Old buildings are a good background  as long as there not to big takes away from the car same as pretty girls

Blind spots? This from the guy chiding us old dudes for not being able to see out of our Corvettes??? :lurk: 

:hysterical: 

The car has blind spots......not me.

ps: no joke here, just saw a horrendous corvette crash on my way out of Dallas about an hour ago. Snapped a couple photos, will post later.

How about abandoned Sears stores, Toys r Us, Sports Authority, Radio Shacks etc.? We got plenty of em here. :lurk:

 

Toys R Us is closing, but not done yet.  The Radio Shack became something else.  Sears is still here, at least as of yesterday, didn't hear if it's getting shut down in the latest round of closings.  There is a old KMart that I think is closed, might have to drive past there and check it out.
