    But for fall I want to put the Inca Gold top on the 007 and call it “candy corn”

      • I'll end this as there are already some really tough choices with this one, but I'm going to go with Steelblue5505's pairing with the Fire engine.

        • Thank you very much Dot. And I'm certain the crew on Engine 1711 thank you as well.


          The NEXT CHALLENGE WILL BE..........
          Let us see your 02-05 T-Bird parked by a unique appearing home. A home that is privately owned & presently lived in NOT a museum or public building.
          Here is one of my favorites. It is the actual SS Nasookin which used on the lakes of British Columbia. When it was retired it was loaded similar to moving a building and put into this setting in Nelson, BC

            • Your assignment is a whole lot tougher than mine was. I can't think of any odd home that I've photographed any of our tbirds in front of or even near.

              • Should have an entry later today. I need to get to the home computer to see if I have the picture I think I have. It's not on my phone.

                It is definitely a tough challenge.

                • Maybe it is too tough of a challenge. It is a reflection of one of my quirks. I like looking for & finding homes that have different architecture styles that people live in. I spotted many while we attended the event in New Orleans. Hint, Hint

                      Not too tough, but tougher than some. Yes, there are a lot of cool houses in New Orleans, but unfortunately when I saw them we were on the move, not parked near them.

                      • This house (known as The Castle for obvious reasons) is located in our town. When I moved here it was owned by the parents of a girl that I went to pharmacy school with. She never moved back here and when her parents died the house was sold. Two or three different owners have owned it in the years since. I talked with one of them a few years ago. He said the place was about as drafty as a real castle and since it had been added on to several times over the years it is an electrical nightmare. I'm not sure if the current owners live in parts of the house or not, but I know they rent parts of it out as a B&B and events center.

                        It definitely falls into the unique category, especially in rural Oklahoma of all places.

                          This is Kensington House, or Weymes Simpson House, the second oldest building in Sault Ste. Marie still standing. It was build by Weymes Simpson in 1865 when the was assigned as Cheif of the Port for The Hudson Bay Company. After the Hudson Bay Post was closed down and Canada came to confederation in 1867 he was elected into the first parlement of Canada as the Member of Parliament for Algoma. The house is now a private residence and when I was taking this picture I was asked why I was doing so and explained our picture challenge, they were very interesting and intrigued by this.

                          Then when I did some research on the building I found a photo of it in 2004 that was when some renovations were made and low and behold what is in the driveway but a 2002 Black Thunderbird in all its glory. Now tell me what are the chances of that.

                            • Well Ted, the people back then obviously had outstanding taste in automobiles.
