Beautiful Women, Cars, and Jokes. What else is there?

Most of the summer toys that I’ve been featuring have been fast and flashy. That’s fine, but today I’m going with a reader find that’s more slow and steady. It’s a 1955 Ford Country Sedan that was spotted in a parking lot by one of my readers. You don’t see these very much anymore which is one of the reasons I like it so much. It comes from a time when you could pack up the entire family (and then some!) and take it out on a road trip. Add in route 66 and some apple pie and you couldn’t get any more American!




Hey Keep, You’ve been asking for more automotive goodness so I thought I would send this to you. I went to the hardware store and saw this beauty. She’s not sleek, fast or fancy but what a gem. She’s a 1955 Ford Country Sedan. The body was flawless for her age and she’s just an old driver but me and some other guys were giving her a good look. The gentleman in the photo was as impressed as I was over the condition of the old girl. Nothing fancy but makes you think of loading up the family and cruising Route 66 to Disneyland. Wish I had snapped a few more photos but the owner wanted to go home. American steel,,,gotta love it. -Ken

It’s a rainy day here in the Chicagoland area but I’m image3not going to let that get in the way of featuring an incredible pair of summer toys that were made to run fast in the sunshine.


The first, in Blade Silver Metallic, is a 2015 Callaway Stingray convertible with 657hp. The second, in Watkins Glen Gray Metallic, is a brand-spankin-new 2017 Grand Sport edition with 460hp. My only question—how the hell does this guy decide which to drive to work in the morning? That’s the kind of problem I aspire to have!





Hey Keep, It’s been a while! Hope all is well. I keep forgetting to email you pics. Had some changes to the Vette garage over the last few years. Pics attached. 2015 Callaway Stingray, 657 hp 639 lbs ft torque and a 2017 Grand Sport that just arrived on 7/27. Post some of the pics or all, up to you.

Italian Racing Red Metallic. That’s what Jaguar calls jag2the color on this beautiful new 2017 Jaguar XE 3.5t and it couldn’t be more appropriate because somehow “red” just doesn’t cut it.


This stunning Jaguar belongs to John, a reader who wanted a summer toy that could also be used in the winter. Though I can’t imagine subjecting this precision machine to the horrors of winter, he made sure that it came equipped with the right options to handle Mother Nature at her worst. Winter or summer, it looks like he’s got both seasons covered in style.


Got a summer toy that you’re proud of? Snap a photo or two and send ’em in before the summer slips away and I may feature it here on my site!




Hey Keep – I’ve been wanting to show off my new ride. 2017 Jaguar XE 3.5t AWD. 340 HP, 0-60 5 sec. I wanted to get a C4, but this compromise allows for fun in winter and summer. Lots of fun to drive with torque vectoring and perfect balance front to back. All surface progress control and adaptive surface response means that I look forward to (I know you are about to cringe) snow!! Love your site, long live The Keeper! -John
