Thanks Rick for posting the article.

I was a little stunned at the pricing at the end of the article.

I looked up the value for my car on Hagerty in good condition.....$15,800.  i think I would be lucky to get $5k.

Hi Mikey, how are things in the nutmeg state? Carol and I are leaving Florida this Friday, (4/1) and starting our journey across a good part of the country. We will be passing through roughly 22 states in the next six months before returning to Florida for the fall/ winter. Looking forward to the journey, just not my diesel bill! Currently $5.19 here in Fl. We will be putting about 10,000 miles on pulling the fifth wheel and a bunch more sightseeing without the rig. Maybe I’ll post some pictures here showing some of the sights we see, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Moab, Hoover Dam Grand Canyon, Vegas, etc.
Glad to see Turbo Coupes getting some recognition at last. Not a Hellcat or GT 500 but great cars in their time.
Keep the Blue Ovals running!
Rick

Rick, it sounds like you are going to have an epic summer!  We stayed at a motel in Moab cause I wasn't going to even try to keep the tin box cool in those temps.  Please post pictures of your adventure!

Connecticut can't make its mind up what season it is yet.  March, in like a lamb and out like a lion normal.  I did get the studs off the bike and back to regular knobbie tires .  I am hoping to get back into doing my hour motos to stay in shape since I had carpal tunnel surgery done last fall.  I spent all my play money on my bike this year upgrading suspension and stuff rather than the car.  Just going to drive the car this year and enjoy.

I posted a comment on that article with a shameless plug for the site.
