    For some reason, I have a liking for those units which carried the smaller Rio Grande lettering.

    Looks like the 1969-71 generation. Same silhouette as my former 69 Newport. 2 door hardtop too. Those buggers were nice beasts!

    And room enough on the back seat for some procreation.;)

    We might have to settle on split custody.:D

    A scraggly 250 horsepower per axle and over 75,000 pounds of tractive effort make good helper engines.

    Great views. I especially like the top one. The fuzzy white effect of the blooming Spirea is really nice.
