Default Sunday Driver

This Sunday, we took a drive along the Rock River in northern Illinois, just two cars. The other couple took the picture of our two cars, and didn't notice until later that there was a "ghost" C4 going by in the background. Neat.

The pic of our car (5 yrs old, 63k miles) shows the clay/polish/Rejex job from Joz132. As usual, Jeff did a nice job.

aww, c'mon, Jim. you staged that so that someone could come by in a C4, right? but if not, that's one heckuva good shot to catch one driving by, just at the right moment, and snap the pic! (not to mention the two reds looking good with that ghostly silver or white going past)

The fact that the C4 was inadvertent makes that pic pretty awesome in my book, nice C6's as well
Edit: whoops that's a C5 in front! lol nice cars.

It's the predecessor of the C5 Z06, a 2000 Hardtop. The owner likes it, though he's no racer.

It's in beautiful condition, 9 years older than my car but half as many miles and lovingly cared for.
