Yay! I can actually post in this thread now!! I got the hood mocked up today - first time since I took it off in August 2010. Hopefully, only one more 'take off' by the painter, and I'll have a 'real' OTH pic with something other than the inside of the shop. ;) :D

Heres a picture from about a week ago. The car is my daily driver 72 mach1 (351 4V, 4speed car). The time this picture was taken was 3:15am, during a blizzard, and the mach was doubling as an ambulance. The girlfriend had just fallen on ice outside here house and broke her ankle in two places, of course no one was home to bring her and was the first one she called. So, I started the mach, brushed the snow off the windows, and drove across town to her, and then to the hospital. The mach is surprisingly a decent driver in the snow!

Great pics. Do you have snow tires on the Mach? Back in the 70's I had an extra set of wheels and snow tires mounted on them. But that only lasted a couple of years until I had a Dodge Super Van, Tradesman 300, that I used in bad weather.

I am so stoked to finally be able to post! Drove the car over to a body shop today to get a repair estimate for my rust. This is the first time I've ever actually driven the car other than little shorties around the block. After blowing some of the cobwebs out of the motor it runs WAY smoother than it had been. Taking it back next week for him to actually do the work. Can't believe I ever contemplated selling it!

I took a long drive today and stopped at the beautiful castle of Beaufort.

As I took upon myself the sacred duty to promote this tiny little, unknown country so that maybe one of you guys will pay me a visit one day, I decided to take a pic and share it with you.

Mate, you guys up north are all heroes! How on earth do you put up with that cold white stuff! What do you call it? Snow or something...

I'm never going to complain again when I have to put a jumper on when it's a little fresh outside in winter...!

I have wanted to post an over the hood shot for a looong time. Here is my first while entering Charlotte Motor Speedway for the 50th.

That's funny, when I was looking on google where was this castle, I found it on Wikipedia:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_Castle,_Luxembourg

 

And the picture you took seems like the same on Wiki, only the clouds were gone:)

By the way, nice one.
