First 2 pics where in the morning just as I hit the highway to work. Last pic was heading home again, just hit some heavy traffic right before my exit.

Luckily my commute is fairly short, just a couple of miles of highway before I'm off again. But still, rushhour traffic is slow, and the 274 rollercam in the 496ci engine doesn't like it that much, although it still idles happily most of the time.

You know those other commuters think you're crazy.

Man and I've heared folks across the pond say we have wide traffic lanes. Whats really fun is by passing the rear exhaust to drag pipes in ratted big block going through a McDonalds drive through.

One of the things that gets 'noticed' also these days, is that newer cars don't smell anymore.
Which makes this cammed NewYorker smell like a whole fleet of old cars is passing by...

I've always found driving a Forward Look around tends to cause traffic. People love to slow down and stare.

You're right.....we drive our '61 Saratoga and '58 Imperial as much as we can....it's like being in a parade....folks wave, smile, reminisce, take photos and look forward to seeing these great Forward Looks again.
