Fall Drives to Remember - Share Pictures

What's the first thing that you think of when you hear "Fall weather"? The average person probably says something like, "Finally!!! I can drive without the A/C on" (if you're lucky to have A/C ) But us self-proclaimed "gearheads" think a little differently and likely say "Finally, I can enjoy that drive". We all have a "THAT DRIVE". Share yours with us; and show us what Fall driving means to you!

Here's me and my dad before going out on a spin in the santa cruz mountains a few years ago, we sprayed 300 gallons of wildflower seed slurry on the hillsides! I have a picture somewhere of the results 3 weeks later

Drove from South Carolina to Maine. Lots of pines in Maine so not much color changing.

Yea, sadly you've missed the colour changing up here. We had a massive wind storm last week that pretty much stripped the last of the leaves.
Beautiful TD, though, that's a great colour.

Post Fall

After many years of ownership I finally hand polished and waxed my old Coupe :

That's all original paint, lots of chips, dings and scratches, I can't seem to find a painter that's honest and reliable .
