Wish I had a POSI
1965 Buick Skylark Sport coupe (hers)
1965 Gran Sport convertible (mine)

 Motor Trend remarked that its 12.3 mpg in city driving was "not bad at all." and a lot of FUN!!!

Dear Jim, JimL, and mid-60s fans of cars that can move!!

Okay, okay!!
You made your point!  Do you think you can slow that car down enough so that you could take a picture of that beauty?  :laughing7:

Cheers, Edouard  :occasion14:

P.S. Don't forget to get some Spring scenery in the background for bogus points!  :thumbsup:

well that's one way to make sure the rear tires don't have flat spots from sitting. :)

Nice Jim !    I remember doing donuts in the middle of intersections in my younger days .
I had a cousin do a burn out like that at the main street stop light in Cambridge Mn. when we were in our early 20s . We were totally amazed he did it because we all thought he knew that there was a STATE TROOPER sitting right behind him watching the whole thing .
( It did not end up well for him that knight )
