I'm terribly jealous!  Mine looks very much the same but the last few weekends have either had rain or family & work conflicts when I wanted to take it out.  Hopefully next weekend will be good!

Thanks for the inspiration and best wishes for a happy season of driving.

My 73 is still sleeping for the winter.   Not sure what its like at home since I'm not there but I know it was no where near 60 where I am.

Hello Colin

Nice car.
All good men own a Cadillac but great gentlemen drive a LaSalle. That is the consequence of success.

Lovely car and a wonderful picture!!

My 73 is still in the garage, I am working on replacing the front filler panels right now, but we still are in early spring up here by the Arctic Circle (still below freezing most nights and some snow left here and there).
