Cars Are Finally In Season

So the sun has finally graced the northern states. It's still in the 50's, but we're all frolicking without jackets like it's 80. Some have even donned shorts. Vitamin D tends to do that to us.

Excitement about the sun isn't limited to the exposure of bare arms and legs. It's also a green flag, coaxing all the fun cars out of hiding. They slink around town, hang out by the mill pond, wink at us suggestively and say, "How 'bout a ride, eh?"

(In case you didn't know, the cars here have Canadian accents.)

A typical cruise on I96 often shakes out a few interesting automobiles. Here's the 2010 Buick Lacrosse, still covered in tape. I don't know about you, but it's got nothin' on the Fiesta.

Later that day we took a stroll around our tiny downtown area and found a pair of Porsches sunbathing.

And just a block further, we found the only true gem of the day -- a Jaguar E-Type. Niiiiice.

On the other side of the pond (Lake Michigan of course), Joel's mom had a coming out party for her new smart fortwo. Sorry, Ford. Wish we would have had a Fiesta a couple months ago -- could have done a marketing pitch! (Note: The young lady in the photo is not Joel's mom. That would just be weird.)
