Saline cars

Restored 1965 Ford Mustang convertible, in front of my Gallery on East Michigan Avenue late-summer 2016. Note the traffic re-direction barrels in the background; this was during the major downtown MDOT reconstruction project.

This is my second Forum thread on good looking automobiles seen on the streets of Saline. Once I got to five images on "Does your car turn heads in Saline?" content seemed to call for new space to keep things from getting unwieldy.

A couple of guys on the Saline Cars and Coffee under Facebook have expressed interest in sharing images of their cars here on The Saline Post forums as well. But they're balking at difficulty they say they've encountered in getting setup to do so here. I sure hope that changes. Saline Cars and Coffee members have some really great vehicles, and the audience here to see them is ten to a hundred times what they're reaching locally on that platform.

Until things change, I'll keep sharing what comes past my iPhone camera.

Happened across this beauty in September of 2016. It was offered for sale on Saline-Ann Arbor Road in Lodi Township, just this side of Textile.

Shameless plug: Owner could'a benefited from additionally listing it here on The Saline Post under the free Classified Ads section.

Happened across this car near Union School, near the corner of West McKay and North Ann Arbor Streets downtown. Believe it was being serviced at Corfman Auto Plus (which, in my experience, would be a great choice).

Happened upon this while doing some golden hour work downtown during the Michigan Avenue reconstruction project. Late September 2016, so "fun" cars were quickly disappearing from the streets and those that persisted were usually buttoned-up, as in this case.

Facing north with Murphy's Crossing "Courtyard Entrance" in the distance, closer landmarks include Maureen's Designs and Carrigan Cafe.

Thought about cropping this photograph much tighter, having the now-sixty-year-old automobile as only vehicle on the road — leaving many people who saw it to wonder which Michigan Avenue reconstruction project was being shown here.

Lest there be any doubt: This was our own downtown Saline on July 6, 2016.
