I have an attachment pic of it in the other railfan ride thread, but I finally got it included in an RP shot, unintentional. Nevermind the dirt, it always looks that way

Here's my usual ride:

1998 Chevy Lumina LTZ
His name is William.

But if you went to Trainfest you might remember me by my father's car....


Lemme tell you, it's not that easy to chase a train with 70 horsepower, but parking was a cinch!

That is not the primary railfan car, thought it's been going back and forth between Michigan and Minnesota an awful lot. I bought it when it was two years old with 42K, and one year later, it has 60K. The railfan car, another Grand Marquis, has had 92K put on it in the last three years.
