[E-Type] Rush Hour Is Such A Drag!

like that in Houston.

We have this

I sure hope there’s no ‘e content’ under there somewhere…

last time there was a tropical storm down there with big flooding
(back in 2000) there WAS an E-Type under all that muddy water… the
65 OTS I am going to be picking up in 9 days.

It is a long and gruesome story, which someday I may tell, but it is
just too hard to relate at the moment.

Ray,

What? You mean you don’t drive the E-Type down these roads every
day to work? And here I was thinking how nice it was of the hoi
polloi traffic (BMW) to get out of your way! >;->

Gee, I guess you got me on the Jag content!  About the only Jag 

content I can come up with is I often do drive the Jag down these
same roads, and the Jag is parked in the detached garage/shop,
which isn’t too far from the attached garage where the BMW is
usually parked. Is that close enough? If not, I guess I’ll just
have to slink off to some dark corner to hide my head in shame…

Ray: We were using Ford Festivas for bait. :slight_smile:

I guess I should have explained that was a picture of Interstate 10 after
Tropical Storm Allison.

I thought they were ‘‘Texas’’ sized Bass Boats!

Hey Ray - you’ll never appreciate brakes till you have to panic
brake to avoid a farmer with a manure wagon. That’s panic with a
capital ‘P’. You just have to drive in dairy country to understand!

PS - those cliffs look unforgiving, the front swaybar must have a
godsend!

Dave,
We don’t need manure wagons. But come to think of it, I did
know a guy in college who thought BMW stood for Bohemian Manure
Wagon.
However, what we do have is lotsa deer that seem to have
mastered teleportation. They can just magically appear out of thin
air directly in front of you.
Hey, that was you that found your diff output shaft bearings
trashed, right? How’s the repairt going?–

That’s magic you don’t need to tempt! I’d hate to see your beautiful
car involved in a deer encounter. In the four years I’ve been here I’ve
had the misfortune of meeting two deer by accident. Fortunately not in
the E. Not even your brake upgrade could have prevented them!

John,
Well, so far, so good. Seven plus years, and no fauna-cides
larger than perhaps a squirrel (and I think he was just kinda
stunned) with any of our cars. The closest I’ve come with a deer
was about a year ago, one came flying (literally) off the slope
next to the road, right alongside me, aimed directly for the
drivers door of the BMW. Nothing I could do, but he apparently had
ABS, because he missed me, but only by an inch or two.–

Ah, rocks…
Looking at your pix, Ray…makes me think rocks! Can’t hep it…I’m
a geologist!
FYI…in the third picture from left, second row, that looks to be
a textbook definition of what is called a ‘unconformity:’’ Where the
flat ‘shelf’ connects to the steep cliffs just above it looks like
the manifestation of two depositional surfaces, of differing
composition…which is the definition of an unconformity. A great
deal of California is what is called ‘accreted terrane.’ Due to the
action of plate tectonics and our li’l friends, the San
Andreas/Garlock/Big Pine fault system, most of CA is …this is a
technical term us geologists use…
SQUOOSHED up, int’a the heap it is! Ain’t you glad I saw your pix?–

I’ve picked off two myself in the last 3 years, both with XJ sedans—not in
the E thankfully. They are drawn like magnets to car lights—so, when I
drive my country roads at night in the E, it is very slow!

Ray, that’s a beautiful drive. The mesquite trees (you’d probably
call them bushes) around the Dallas area only get about twice the
height of the Bimmer. And the roads across the farmland don’t
actually have curves. They have ninety-degree angles between
straight sections since the farm roads run on section lines. It’s
a bit like driving a drag race with sharp turns. I’ve got to find
a better driving area when the brakes are done and the temp get’s
back below 90-degrees.

Fortunately, the water does have a hill to drain down unlike John’s
area in Houston. I agree with the comment about not finding E-
types in the flood. I came upon a collector car showroom just
south of Bush Intercontinental Airport (that’s in Houston for you
non-Texans) and they had a '67 Maserati Ghibli that had been in the
flood. It hadn’t been totally submerged and wasn’t running but had
been sold to a collector in France who was going to restore it. He
bought it even knowing about the water damage. There were a lot of
wet cars after that bit of rain.–
