Late 60's expensive rides - a class joint.

This is really close to where by father lives. It's actually Treasure Island, FL but St. Pete is close enough. I think it's still operating and looks quite the same. Although it might have been razed to make room for some new condos recently.

I love that '63 Jag in the picture!

Overnight rates -- as opposed to hourly?

Tony said...

I had the Aurora kit for that Jag.

All the chrome parts fell off within a week.

Just sayin'.

Over here, we called that the E-type Jaguar.
I stumbled on a Jaguar rally last year:

My old man had an E-type in the 70's. Still has picture of it on his wall at work.

A tuned flat-floor E-Type was the first drive I scared myself on - all of a sudden I was going 120 MPH, with no sensation of jarring acceleration. It was a refined routier and racer all rolled into one.
