  1. * I drew this when I was 11 years old; read about why & how here: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2017/02/10/friday-fun-6/ An iteration of my former car family; of these, I still have 1, which will get antique plates later this year: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2017/02/09/thursday-throwback-6/ While my car family is much smaller now (& will be further reduced when the 1979 Caprice Classic sells), I am much happier with my current car family, particularly my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/about-cort/vehicles-chds-me/ The 1st try at working remotely did not succeed, but I am committed to finding a way, with a 2nd program & attempt this week. While I am frustrated at having to be back in IL the 1st week of each month [& some other times, like for my tentative 05/11/2017 appointments with specialists at Northwestern in Chicago] due to prescription refills, obligations-tasks, etc., I am looking forward to stepping further out of my comfort zone to road trip & work my part-time job. I hope to meet many of you along the way! Draft Itinerary, my 2017 road trips, dates-times TBD: FEBRUARY (last ~1 week) southern IL & into KY, TN MARCH southwest (including Route 66) MO, KS, OK, TX, NM, AZ APRIL southeast (including Dixie Highway) KY, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA, AR MAY northwest (including Lincoln Highway & US RT 20) IA, NE, CO, WY, UT, NV, ID, OR, WA, MT, ND, SD, MN, WI JUNE northeast (including Lincoln Highway & US RT 20) IN, MI, OH, PA, NY, CT, MA, NJ, VA Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com pig&cowValves.paceMaker * 1979 CC to 2003 MGM + 81mc "The rhythm of the asphalt goes on & on & on" | The Road Crew | 'That Ol' 66'

  3. I second this! I wish I would've known about & seen it prior to my 2009 Route 66 road trip ... would've given me a few more ideas for places to explore! If I'm able to include California during my travels this year, I will be referencing it quite a bit.

    My 2017 Road Trips + My Old Family Pic

    * Tuesday, 01/24/2017, I took a day off work, to drive my Aunt Chris in my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis to see an older cousin, Luan, in Rochelle IL. We decided to go to Lincoln Way Cafe in Franklin Grove for lunch & briefly visited the place in the photo; read about what it is, etc., in this link: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2017/02/04/smorgasbord-saturday-5/ SPEAKING OF WORK! After several delays, my major 2017 road trips SEEM to be a GO! I am a bit excited, especially since I will step out of my comfort zone & work my part-time job along the way. It will be challenging to map out the routes-dates-times (especially considering medical appointments, health issues, getting prescription refills & other obligations-tasks, etc.), but I always love a good challenge. I will need definite places to stop &/or stay a few days-nights; so, if you want my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis & me to visit you along the way, speak up NOW. If you want to meet, advise your location, how long you want to visit & wireless internet availability (for work, of course!), so I can plan. If you want, send me an Email: cort @ oldcarsstronghearts.com I have a bunch to do before I start driving [set up a few things, test the work-computer configuration, personal projects-tasks, pack, etc.], but I hope to be on the road within ~2 weeks. I will have to get back to Illinois by the last few days of February & 1st week or so of March, but then I will go back out on the road for most of March & then most of April. I will be in some areas multiple times, but that is OK with me! Since I most-likely will be scarce from the boards while I am on the road, I am planning to chronicle my travels on my website.

    I should clarify, too ... during my experience in 2009, as I stated, they were nice about the probing ... in fact, they were quite humorous about it, despite me becoming more & more nervous the more they probed. Point is ... tho I was terribly nervous, it was actually a funny & humorous footnote experience to the entire trip.

    People & Memories! Your Hs Cars?

    LOL!!!! No, I can't say I had any of those goodies ... ever.... But, I'm curious ... perhaps I know what these are just not the terminology you used? ... what is a "suicide knob" & a "flocked dashboard"....? (Yes, I know what "spinners" are ... LOL!) Your comments about your generation ... times sure have changed. Most high schoolers I know have their own car [either thanks to a job they have or a generous "donation-gift" from their parent(s)]. When I went to school, a car was a luxury. I never had 1 of my own, & it wasn't until the 2nd semester of my senior year that my parents allowed me to occasionally take the family car to school. I thought I was "top dog" then ... heh. As for the parking lot ......... holy cow! At our school, the neighborhoods & city council had to BAN parking on the streets because of the overflow from the student parking lot ... & that has only gotten worse. They finally "got smart" & turned 1 of the beautifully landscaped lawns into a parking lot for students ... but that even has since been turned into half student-half faculty parking.

    Modified Display Case; 69 Pontiac Exec

    * I have experienced a lot of change the last few years, from losing a full-time job to selling the majority of my cars. With some recent changes to my website to start 2017 [after an overall awesome 2016], this (including a photo I took along I-65 S in Kentucky, 08/17/2003) is appropriate: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2017/01/02/monday-message/ 1 of my goals is to re-arrange my model displays, including this double-decker case.

    Newspaper Limo, Vehicle Gens, Graph

    LOL, Dave ... sadly, I don't have a Maserati or Ferrari on my resume of vehicles, either, & probably never will. But, I'm OK with that. That said, I'd say your list is actually an upper ... I'd love to have a convertible & a station wagon ... who knows, maybe it could be 1 & the same!? Cost of ownership is 1 thing I've never really kept track of ... & don't want to ... because, as you noted, it was money well worth it ... & I don't want to ruin that thought with how much others might consider to be a "waste"......... 1 of my regrets (so far, anyway) is most certainly not driving the heritage highways enough. I want to rectify that, &, if I'm able to go "on the road" & work remotely this year, that would be a start ... tho, at the moment, that is looking less likely..... Having not "sinned" enough is also a regret........ Good ... I was wondering if anyone would be able to run the table on the numbers! As you can see, I have all but 2 numbers covered (much like having all but 2 of the states visited). The convertible I want would cover the 5: 1975 Caprice Classic convertible. Not sure what car to own for the 4, though I think it might be neat to have a Mopar of some sort to go with my Mercury & Monte, to have 1 of each from the Big 3?

    California Agricultural Inspection Stations

    Dave, You had me laughing out loud during several passages of your story. This is a very well-written piece, & I'm glad you posted it here for us to read & enjoy. During my Route 66 road trip in 2009, I remember being stopped entering California to be inspected for fruit. I'd been to CA in my younger days on family trips, but don't remember being stopped for inspections. Could be I just wasn't paying attention. Anyway, during my stop in 2009, they just about turned my rental upside down. They were nice about it, of course, but the more they "probed", the more nervous I got, which probably prompted them to inspect more ... LOL. Obviously, I passed inspection, but it was an experience I'll not soon forget. When I returned to CA in 2011, entering a bit further north through Utah, I do not remember them stopping me at all that time.

    On The Road Again!?

    * Since posting this, I have added a few stops & made some timeline adjustments; HOWEVER, some health issues may derail my plans. I should know by the end of 2016 whether or not I will be on the road in 2017 (health wise & boss approval). As if my congenital heart issues were not enough: * recent test results confirm my cholesterol is too high, & I am now in Stage 3 Kidney Disease. * 2nd of 4 follow-up CT scans to monitor the speck on my lung is set for 12/27/2016. My next cardiologist checkup (along with other specialists, including a nephrologist) is set for 05/11/2017, but I found out recently Medicaid insurance may not cover those appointments. Times like these, I just remind myself the Chicago Cubs are the 2016 World Series Champions. In case I do not have time to visit the next couple weeks (what with the 2 Holiday weekends), MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR! With any luck, I will post a potential major road trip route for 2017 soon?

    On The Road Again!?

    * Anyone into HO (or other) scale trains? I certainly was when I was a youngster, & still am, actually. For many years, I had this train table set up, but had to take it down a few years ago for some basement renovations. Maybe someday I will get it back up & running! Meantime, what catches your spying-eye radar? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/12/05/monday-night-fun-84/ Which of these Hot Rods would you prefer: Chocolate Brown Goodness or Winter White Coolness!? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/12/08/thursday-survey-84/ When is a cop car not a cop car? When it is painted as such, like this Junkyard Jewel! http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/12/10/car-tunes-saturday-84/ Since my boss 1st agreed to revisit the possibility of me working remotely, starting January 2017, he has since said my next work computer will be a laptop & suggested ways to handle work flow with me on the road. So, I am hoping a major, working road trip actually happens in 2017. That in mind, I started a ROUGH, general overview of a potential route. Given so many variables (i.e. people to see, who I can stay with for a day or 2, needing to return to IL every so often, weather, timing, etc.), I will figure out specifics (dates, times, actual path, etc.) later. The outline below includes places I have stops for visits &/or 1-2 days to stay; some areas can be switched around, too (for instance, could stop in Cincinnati en route to FL). Let me know if you would like to meet up in 2017!

    2-Day Rt Info! Caprice-Mercury. Car Music?

    * Received my license plates for my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis! I did not get my 1st choice (PANTHR 3), but I got my 2nd choice, DLY DRV 3. At least now the plates make it official, right? ALSO somewhat official: my boss has agreed to revisit the possibility of me working remotely, starting January 2017, which means I can ROAD TRIP about as much as I want & really live those impulses to drive & see people & places. I am developing potential plans (including time to drive, work, visit, maintain my website & other personal projects-goals) & hope to have a decision from him later this month! How cool would that be if it works even somewhat close to what I envision?

    2-Day Rt Info! Caprice-Mercury. Car Music?

    * Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Anyone shop at local hometown establishments today, 11/26/2016, Small Business Saturday? Thursday-Friday (11/17-18/2016) I drove to Okemos MI & had a great, yet somewhat weird, very mini road trip, the 1st of hopefully many full road trips, in my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. I wrote about those 2 days, & included some details, such as gas mileages, & 2 photos in this entry: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/11/22/tuesday-trip-82/ Now, I really want to road trip more again; cool & somewhat bittersweet to have those impulses back full force. This 1974 Ford brochure cover makes me miss the days when individual models had their own emblems &/or nameplate style-design! Do you have a favorite unique emblem from vehicles of yesterday? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/11/24/throwback-thursday-82/ Finned Cadillac, a great cruising & listening to music vehicle! What do you think is the best vehicle for cruising & listening to music? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2016/11/26/car-tunes-saturday-82/ Perhaps it will be a little tougher than I thought to let go of the 1979 Caprice Classic, tho selling it is probably for the best; drove it for ~1.5 hours Friday & finished removing my stuff from it. Comparing my CC & 03 MGM, the Mercury is physically larger, yet the Caprice drives-handles like a much bigger car. Despite the silver color & the leather seats, I really do like my 03 MGM. BONUS: no MGM generation makes you wonder what Mercury was thinking; all years stay true to the heritage of the nameplate. After owning the Mercury for ~1 month now, I recognize an importance in branching out & owning at least 1 from each of the Big 3 at some point in life, for experience & knowledge. Maybe someday I will get a late 1970s Chrysler Cordoba!?

    New Us-6 Signage

    I've been on US Route 6 in a few different states ... Illinois (it is ~1-2 hours south of me), Ohio, Pennsylvania & Utah ... maybe someday I'll be able to travel the entire length. I'm always amused looking at a map of it ... because it has so many twists & turns & literally goes in all directions. US 20 goes right through my hometown ... & I've been on it in the middle of the country & on both coasts ... hoping to someday drive all of it, too.

    What Made You Laugh? Car & Music!

    * Had a great, but somewhat weird, very mini road trip in my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis (upwards of 25mpg) to Michigan this past Thursday & Friday (11/17-18/2016). Drove straight to Okemos MI via I-390, I-290, I-294, I-94, I-69 & I-96 Thursday AM, then drove a LONG way back via I-69, I-74, I-57, US 24 & IL RT 47 Friday. I will need to go back to Okemos in ~1 month, so maybe I could plan to meet some of you along the way?

    New-To-Me 03 G Marquis + Cars To See

    * What a difference a few years make? 5 years ago this very week (dates & days), I had my catheterization Monday (11/07/2011), my 4th open heart surgery Friday (11/11/2011), & then today (Saturday evening), I was rushed back into the OR to stop some bleeding. Now, I am surprised by a Cubs World Series win & getting used to a new daily driver!
