So it was a whiles back this olelongrooffan ventured over to historic Mount Dora, Florida to check out the Antique Automobile Club of America local show at the Lakeside Inn. It was there a bunch of cool ass crap was spotted and this olelongrooffan is extremely delinquent in sharing with my fellow Hoons. Good things come to those who wait and all that. Anyways, as I was traversing the Withlacoochee State Forest on the way home, Mother Nature hollered at me so I decided to stop and have a chat. In the meantime, this ole bouldvard cruiser was spotted and of course the rules for Redusernab Long Shots required this olelongrooffan to gather up a few images to share.
Yes, this is a sweet old ride. Back in the mid 90’s my pop, TheGentlemanFarmer, had a peach colored Coupe deVille of this same vintage. I am not sure as to whether this one was attending that same car show some 100 miles away but it would have looked right at place hanging on the lawns there overlooking Lake Harris with all the other vintage hardware.
And this mile long Sedan looked “Pressed Tight” as nephew theKid used to say. By The Way, theKid is now serving in the US Army and is home on leave. Damn, that little Kid has gone and gotten all growed up and buff would be an understatement. As he is in between Korea and Alaska this leave, he wants to do all of the old school stuff he used to do as a youngster so we will be heading to the Coke Zero 400 in just a few weeks with those Hot Passes. Can’t Wait. And regardless of your politics, thejeepjunkie and this olelongrooffan are sure proud of that Kid.
And the interior of this ride is pert near perfect. That pencil thin steering wheel matching that pencil thin gear selector are just over the top. And with a factory AM radio to boot. While that radio may be within reach of Mama to adjust the stations, there is no way she is gonna have anything to do with the temperature inside this old sedan!
Yeah, just a fine ride all the way around and this old Sedan deVille is one this olelongrooffan wouldn’t mind having in my livery. The length of the roof be damned.
Oops. This one is for another post. BTW, can any of my fellow Hoons identify the car in this image? I spotted it passing down a country road at about 30 miles per hour and had to grab this image just to share.
