Fort Myers Beach

It’s Thursday. One of my readers recently came across this beauty in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. It appears to be a 1956 Corvette in Venetian Red with white coves. It’s difficult to be certain because there were very few cosmetic changes between the 56 & 57 Corvette. One of the few ways is to take a closer look at the rear-view mirror and how it’s mounted to the dash. In the ’56 the mirror was adjustable with a thumbscrew on its base, but the ’57 mirror required a wrench. If you take a closer look at both of these photos, the base of the mirror is covered by what appears to be a string of beads! Dammit!

So we’ll likely never know for certain, but at the end of the day all that matters is he’s driving it home and we’re not!


Keep, saw this in Fort Myers Beach last night and immediately thought of you. Thanks for all you do…..🤙🌴😎 -Fred

Amateur Wednesday

It’s Wednesday. What was supposed to be our first major snow event somewhat fizzled out. Out of the predicted 5-9 inches I’d say we got maybe 3. It was enough to transform the landscape and momentarily mess up the roads but that’s about it. On the other hand, our dog Abby thinks it’s awesome. Marilyn, our cat, completely disagrees. 

I have some new amateur goodness to share with all of you today. It comes from a reader who appears to have taken advantage of some quality time with his wife during the quarantine. And once you see his photo, who could blame him? Enjoy.


Keep, I thought you should know that you have a hell of a nice website. I don’t know how you keep it up like you do but its quickly climbed to the top of my favorites! I’d like to contribute to your “amateur goodness” with a picture of my wife [of 4 yrs] from one of our quarantine sessions. It’s yours to share if you so choose. -Anonymous

Montana Auto Goodness

It’s Tuesday. Here in Illinois the snow is falling and we’re still several months away from spring. So, in an effort to forget about the frigid conditions outside, I thought it would be cool to revisit a better time and place—like Evergreen, Montana, in the summer of 2017. And what better way to enjoy a beautiful late summer day than at a car show? A special thanks goes out to PJ, a reader who was kind enough to share his photos from the show. Enjoy!


Hi Keep, It’s been a while since I sent anything in and after noticing some other car shows featured after the fact, I thought this would be a good time to bring another out. In 2017 we drove over to Evergreen, Montana for a classic car show. Not sure if I’ve been to any other shows with such an eclectic mix of vehicles. Of course in Montana there’s going to be some interesting trucks (like the dually beer can smasher) and other surprises. The ’52 Pontiac (“Oh, The Memories”) was probably my favorite of all. Feel free to use all, any, or none. Thanks for “Keeping” us going through the pandemic and other craziness! -PJ
