Yet another photo of an AMC Javelin, this one a 1969 model. I took this picture yesterday at a local Cars & Coffee gathering. A photo from the rear actually looks a little better, but I didn’t want to show this car’s license plate. It wasn’t profane, but who knows who’s reading this. I really think this car is among the best looking American cars ever although I prefer the 1968 since that year doesn’t have the hood scoops.
Even if many of the cars were “excessively” customized for me, I was heartened by the large turnout and by the age of many of the people in attendance. I have never been to such a gathering and seen so many people in their 20s and 30s. I also don’t think I’ve ever seen so many Japanese cars in one place other than at an event dedicated to Japanese cars. Here’s one that always catches my eye:
Of course, that’s a Nissan GT-R, which has already been the subject of a post here. (https://disaffectedmusings.com/2018/03/27/godzilla/) I am quite curious as to what Nissan will do to “replace” this car. They can’t produce it forever in its current form. Perish the thought that cars like this go away; it’s bad enough that sedans are facing extinction under the onslaught of SUVs and pickup trucks.
My wonderful wife and I attended two Cars & Coffee events this weekend; in the one from which the pictures are shown here we were accompanied by her parents. One should never wish time away, but I am looking forward to my wonderful wife and I reaching the age where we can tap into our retirement money without penalty.
