~~ Friday’s Hunt v.2.23 -- "W" is for ... (also a little Quiz)

Friday's Hunt for the week of December 2nd: (1) Starts with "W"; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Machine


(1a) Starts with "W": "Where?"  Also known as (AKA) "Where am I?"
 - That question is my Quiz.  See "ANSWER" below to find out.
ANSWER to Quiz: Highlight the blank area below:

    I am (was) in St. Remy, France.  Van Gogh lived there almost a year, in a sanatorium where he admitted himself after he cut his ear off. We spent a week there in town, St. Remy
For a peek at Van Gogh's picture of the same garden, go here:

(1b) Starts with "W": "W" is for Win



1970 Hemi Cuda vs 1969 L88 Corvette  -- I'd love for the Cuda to win but I'll put my money (a saying, I don't gamble) on the Corvette. 
Your prediction? 

. I have had three Chrysler products, ranking them in like and dependability:
 (1st) 1976 Plymouth Volare station wagon (picture link) Had Mrs. Jim voted, it would not be # 1 on my list.  It was susceptible to rusting and had a rust hole in the floor board, nicely covered with a floor mat.  But she was afraid of falling through.
 - When it had over 150K miles we took it from Houston to the East Coast up to New Hampshire, across over to Niagara, Canada, on through and down to Detroit, then, stopping at Nebraska, on back to Texas. 
 - At 176K miles it developed a bad, fast transmission leak.  I sold it for $600, then the buyer stopped it with stop leak.  It may still be running.
 (2nd) 1984 Dodge 600 Convertible (picture link) (A fun car, mine wasn't a turbo, it had a regular Mitsubishi 2.4 four cylinder engine); and
 (3rd) 1980 Chrysler Cordoba (
picture link).  It got us where we needed to go.


 (2) Week's Favorite:

Got five 2017 calendars Tuesday.  I wanted my 2017 N A P A Classic Car calendar but they weren't in yet.  We were in Magnolia, Montgomery, Conroe, and The Woodlands as I usually get them at either Montgomery or Conroe.  The local hardware had these.

I may not make it back up before mid-January and often they are out by then.  I have all issues except the very first one, early 1960's edition. (link to some here on my blog
.
.

.
(3) Machine -- my '70 Cuda and 69 Corvette cars and the 1946 Chevy pickup will be my machines.

Sorry it's mostly cars.  I hope you like Van Gogh.  I do.

Next time it might be better.  Some Birds?

I love cars, and food. Okay I can do without the food.

He stopped the leak with stop-leak? I'm guessing you would have used this if you'd known about it. Bugger!

Have a fabulous day Jim. ☺
 
"W"here am I is something that I say often! I must say that I like "W"inning better than loosing. I need to stop by Northstar Electric and pick up a tractor and a truck calendar. Your machines are fine with me!
 
Well Jim, I like seeing all the cars and that short clip of them racing. I do you like Van Gogh, in fact I have an art appreciation group in my house and so far we have studied art from exam time times right up to modern day times. We all participate in this group and we all love it. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
 
Hi Jim - my hubby has a number of 2017 vintage motorcycle calendars ready to go. Your calendars remind me of his! I love the St. Remy shot - looks like a very peaceful place. The weathervane in my post is probably modern - it was there when we bought the house so I don't know for sure. We have several interesting clocks because Marc loves clocks - especially vintage ones. I'll have to write a post about them sometime! I'm sure he would like your clocks too!
 
I currently drive a Dodge Grand Caravan modified to work with a wheelchair - the 3.3 is a nice engine. My Grandpa was a died in the wool Mopar guy, Plymouths, Dodge Chryslers (his final two were a 1971 Chrysler Three-Hundred (440 with serious torque) and a 1976 Dodge Coronet wagon (360). He bought from the same dealer, Pietro DiNovo & Sons in Steubenville, Ohio from 1937-1975. He swore by them, Chrysler and DiNovo...
