Along the U.S. roads



In the state of Oregon drivers remain in the car at the pumps. State law bans the driver from using the pumps, an attendant will fuel the car and accept payment.This is also the case in just one other state, New Jersey. 
It seems in the UK that SHELL are introducing attendants at some of their petrol stations. A list can be found HERE. Anyone back home seen/used one?

This WW11 B17 bomber is being restored to an as new condition. The nose section has been completed and is on show under cover. When all the parts have been restored the plane will be re-assembled and put on display in a protected environment. Link HERE

The Yellow one is a 1958 Chevrolet Impala and is for sale at $25,500 (£17,000). On the right a 1951 Mercury Sedan at $18,500 (£12,300). Some more HERE

We are at this moment in Lake Forest Park in north Seattle staying with a friend, Adelina, and our next journey will be a flight to Spokane where it appears snow has been falling. Hopefully it will be light or better still gone by our arrival as we have a hire car waiting and even Jaq my Alaskan born bride is not keen on driving without her usual studded tyres. That`s tires to our U.S. readers.

Definition of age is seeing both classic cars as current models when they were released. These days current years and prior year models all meld together. You don't purchase a car, you purchase a show and tell lifestyle with all the toys and gizmos you'd ever want...it just isn't the same anymore.
As similar toa narrowboat, the date of manufacture is often not a topic of discussion.
