What I saw first.......................from Rico

It's Spring, and a change of seasons (particularly Spring & Fall) usually means - for me - a bout with "car and/or motorcycle fever"...I can't help it.
- I just passed through an episode of almost getting another V-8 two-seat convertible. Just barely. I had the checkbook out and was so ready.
 
But I recovered and am just fine now.
 
Now this.
 
My first thought when I saw this was...I am not making this up..."is that a 1962 Cadillac convertible?" It's troubling that I saw the car first.
- I'm telling myself right now that it's not that I'm getting old, it's just that I'm a car guy.

I sympathize, but remember: it could be worse. Recently, I was tooling along in my red Corvette convertible -- yes, with the top down -- when a gorgeous young woman in a Mustang pulled up beside me and shouted, "Is that a C6 or a C7?"

That's why we old folks tend to tell stories about our "glory days."

Well yes, based on her lines, she is a Cadillac. But she looks far newer than a 1962 model. And I damn sure hope she isn't "convertible"...
