Vehicle: 2003 Ford Focus ZX5
Millage: 130,000 miles
Distinguishing features: OU decal on side windows, upside down Texas decal on the rear, Wisconsin plates

If you ever spot my car, be sure to stop and introduce yourself... unless of course there's a cute girl driving it and I'm nowhere to be seen, in which case you'd probably just spook my wife.

Well, we have still got the same old car since the last thread (in fact it is more or less exactly seven years old!), but seeing that my usual Railfan Ride was a train then, here are my local company's flashy new trains



BTW, I walked from home to get this pic.

Never intentionally taken a shot with the jeep in it, but it just missed out on it's one chance...

Being AF I envy flying around in a slow filling station, mostly stable air platform that Ween has. But since I'm retired I'll stick with my d 13 year old, it won't fit in some tight spots like Mike's liberty Jeep but it does get you

1989 Dodge Cummings Diesel 350, ozone destroyer. Not a bad truck for its age(same age as me). Only 167k and some change on the odometer.

Picture was taken after this shot was made.

Slow? Since when is .85 Mach slow?!?

But, for what it's worth, that's not my ride anymore; now I'll be lucky if I can get to 100kts...
