Not my favorite vehicles — MidWeek Blues
My twin sons had Chevy Cameros while they were in high school. Their first car was a shared 1962 VW Bug with a nice fold up sun roof. It was a nice car that was my only car while I was single. Unfortunately the engine blew.
They both had good jobs with an ice cream store making them able to finance and make payments on the Cameros. Mitch had a gold 1969 Z-28 similar to the one on my calendar. Mike's was a 1968 RS painted like this one. They were both good cars and so they kept until their college years.
I do like my NAPA Calendars. I have most of them dating back to the 1970's. NAPA is a good auto parts store here in Texas. They are nation wide, you may have one in your town.
Our NAPA is better than most auto parts stores as they have a machine shop to rebore engine blocks and bearing ports as well as plane heads and grind crankshafts. They will even pull gears off your shaft if you don't have a puller.
This four wheeler belongs to our friend Don who keeps it at his ranch. Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class had a very enjoyable picnic there a couple of weeks ago.
I have never ridden a four-wheeler but I did ride a three wheeler. They are a lot of fun but living here we would have to trailer it out of the subdivsion to find a place to ride. Deed restriction prohibit their use here were we live.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.
Thanks for playing along. Good to 'see' you again.
Have a terrific day. :)
Shamburgs have run it for many, many years and they are very successful at it.
I've always had ford pickups. I have a Chevy now, my second, they ride nice but aren't nearly as tough as a Ford but I don't use my pickup much for work or towing big tanks so the chevy works ok as a road machine.
Love all your old cars!
mr.jim, i have never been on a three wheeler either but five times i was on a two wheeler on the back seat of bernie's goldwing motorcycle heading out to my beloved manitoba and right through sask, alberta and to the bc mountains.
i am old now but the freedom of riding on a motorcycle with the fresh air blosing in your face and the smell of the earth, and the wheat fields and the flowers...just so awesome and it never leaves your blood..no matter how frail in body we are getting!
they sound like a great firm too.
I think 4 wheeler bikes are safer than 3 wheeler ones, it seems.
I am glad you enjoyed the I Believes
and they were good.
Take care, my friend, Regards, Merle.
NAPA is a great auto parts store....
A friend of ours recently had to fly to Colorado to see their son who had fallen off one of those 4 wheelers and broke his neck.... Thank God he is going to be alright....
