Hmmm... Having a tough time choosing which door chrome to use....

I guess I'll go with the one on the top!

(got a great set from a good buddy of mine).

Thanks!

Rocky

OBTW: I hope you guys also like my "official English Pub table"! Picked it up at an auction in Dallas, TX.

A few pictures from "Run to the Pines", a wonderful show in the high altitude of Northern Arizona, and a great drive to get there (about 200 miles). I got caugth in an unexpected storm on my way up, but finally outran it.

Great "mini-vacation" - unbelievably enough, though - I was the only Interceptor there! (as well as the only Jensen, for that matter)! My buddy with the Austin-Healy 100 was there again...

And two Mopar 440s with Six-Packs - a Super Bee and a Challenger R/T.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.... Sorry they are mostly of my car.

I threw one in of my friends in the Pantera Club, too.

Don't make fun of my one-eyed car! You can see the storm approaching in the background!

Jeez,Rocky I would never had known you had a Jensen until I saw the ocassional picture. Actually your Jensen looks exactly like my SP (sort of) same everything except would love to see some storm clouds in Australia. Some country towns are now out of water and are trucking in. Cleaning cars with hose not allowed. How many miles to the US gallon do you get? Kenny38 8)

Hi Kenny -

I think you are pulling my leg, but I'll go along with it.

I hope you have enough to water your goats!

Anyway - my gas mileage isn't anything to brag about - about 12 mpg on my 200 mile journey... Nevertheless - 200 miles of smiles in a tankful.... Listening to that 440 burble...

Hey Grant - I just go faster!

Actually - I do have my wipers in the "boot", but since this is Arizona, I rarely need them....

(The problem is, when I do, they are in the "boot"!)

Hi Kenny -

No, I don't have a 6 pack or a cat. I take the SP pictures for my buddy, Racer Joe. The cats just follow me around. You can see the cat footprints all over my car in the last picture, above.

I have a desert tortoise.

It is the greatest pet ever. You never have to worry about a pet-sitter, it does it's own thing (lives in the yard, and eats grass and flowers), and everyone is excited when it comes out... "Oh, it's the first turtle of Summer!"
