Tribute to friend + sporty + 2 not-seen cars

The owner-proprietor of Afton Station in Oklahoma, a Route 66 personality & friend of mine, died 01/28/2016.  I dedicated Chapter 50 of my Route 66-based story to her:

Chapter 51, which will publicize today (Sunday, 02/07/2016) at 6p US central, talks further about filling shoes of Route 66 icons-ambassadors-roadies who are no longer with us.

Which would you rather have: new sporty (Chevrolet Z-71) or old sporty (Ford Mustang)!?

When is the last time you saw a 1987 Cadillac Cimarron?

Or, a 1959 Edsel!

BTW, today (02/07/2016) marks the beginning of Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Week:

Tonight, a post about a CHD-related Super Bowl commercial will publicize ~9p US central.

I saw a Cimmaron a few weeks ago,some dude driving it. I hate those cars,I remember this smug snot of a woman that my mother knew when I was about 10. She comes over to my mother and says "I just got a new Cadillac". I look outside and see that thing and say to her, where? No Caddy out there, I was 10, she was pissed. I knew what I was talking about with my cousins and uncles driving real ones.

Some of the cars in the 80s was far from the cars in the 60s and 70s even If they share names. Just Think of 80s charger daytona. Or chevy citation, ford mustang was a shadow of it former self. Those cars was pure junk straight from the dealer.

LOL!  I do that with some cars, too, ant7377. Wink

Yep, Hs1973, I'd agree ... although, at least the Ford Mustang stayed true to its RWD roots, unlike the Charger, etc.....

C'mon the current Charger can be bought with a 700 hp motor rwd and its a pleasure to drive. The Mustang II didnt even have a V8 until its last year of production and the Fox Mustangs pretty much renewed the American love for a performance car. Too many stupid magazine articles brainwash everyone.
