    Those were some great cars looks and all. They were far better road cars than our 77s and up. They suck in parking lots and suck a lot of gas.

    I admire the collectors of those years. I remember in my youth how great those cars looked, I alaways wanted a Fleetwood of that area, but that's on car Ive never owned,

    ^The best place for a quiet picnic... And you don`t have to fight for a good space

    That's our motivation! I had never actually been to this cemetery. I mean, I had driven by it, but never had I been within it. In fact, the neighbourhood directly beside it contains a home where I car I once test drove sat for years, waiting to be sold. The day of our picnic, I checked on it, surprised to see it was no longer there.

    This cemetery actually has a nice shaded area with benches, overlooking one of the vast lakes that are so common in my county that...well, we named it Lake County. There is no gate on that side, so I suppose if we took a boat, that would have worked as well. They have a tall stone wall and a spiked iron gate, which seems to be locked at all times. Thankfully, as with nearly all Central FL cemeteries, I have a key.

    We are all embraced by that from which we came and like a drop of rain returning to the ocean, we do the same.

    My Mum was always an avid fan of Luxury cars and favoured them over muscle cars or sports cars (And according to legend, she passed that on to the three kids she raised, but you have no evidence)

    In spite of this and her great collection of vintage automobiles, not to mention funeral coaches, her funeral was done with only pedestrians who walked on foot behind the hearse, which was not an automobile at all, but drawn by six horses.

    In the event I ever die, my funeral procession will be equally humble, I am sure of it.

    And my wake will be...interesting, to say the very least. You're all invited.

    Yeah, maybe you want to go back. There are no caddies or hearses in Heaven as far as I know... so it must be somewhat boring

    Gallowglass never die. They just go home.

    In the right company, I can make a home of anything. Salvation or Damnation.

    Here is a vid of Rex during his first trip after his mild body restoration. I tried to choose appropriate music for the images:



    Sorry for the shaky image. My friend was driving and filming at the same time with his phone. His son was with us; he was like crazy for having a ride in the caddy
    From minute 3:40 on, you can see the new indicator lights working.
