Waiting before the drive in... That will be hot! And sensual. How much is it? The movie is boring... Time to clean the engine... Next time I will take the plane. Aaah, a much better place! Bullit! And per popular request... The best together photo. Just t...

 By: Subexplorer : June 21st, 2019-06:04
This week end Theme made my mind go back in time and remember February 1966 … going with my Dad to the theater to view last James Bond movie which had been launched just a few months before at ends of 1965: Thunderball ! We rode in a red 1966 Ford Mustang...

I thought you'd like the Omega . . .

As far as I know, the only year Mopar (meaning Dodge and Plymouth) offered a 318 engine in an A-body . . .

2220-0630, with a hand wound Chariot Hi-Beat movement and a palladium plated case - meaning it’s absolutely pristine after more than 40 years. And as you noted, Playboy branded 😁

Well played dear friend KM!! Perfect film...

Tough decisions...

 By: kkochheiser : June 22nd, 2019-13:26
As I think back to my earliest drive in movies, I think back to asking my folks for the keys to the new Duetto. Maybe to see Grand Prix, which came out a few years before or later, Le Mans. But then, since I've already asked for the keys, maybe I'd ask to...  

Oh yeah...

 By: kkochheiser : June 22nd, 2019-13:52
Together with the Alfa and together with our Portuguese, large and small. ...  

Lovely Post Script Kkochheiser. Congrats! ...

Great photos in the spirit of this weekends WristScan

Is your film theme The Graduate ?

I recall seeing . . .

 By: Dr No : June 22nd, 2019-16:23
. . . Le Mans when it came out at the nearby Westminster theater. A shame it wasn't screened at the Warner Drive-In . . . that would've been a hoot! AM car radio blasted at full volume during racing scenes ;-) . . .

I remember waiting in line to see the first screening in Des Moines, Iowa and then going to the first drive-in showing, later that summer...

 By: kkochheiser : June 22nd, 2019-16:53
By then I was so deep into racing that it was as close to a physical addiction as I ever want to experience.

Great post kkochheiser!! Great films you name...

 By: Subexplorer : June 22nd, 2019-18:13
... a Man and a Woman among my favorite films! Great watches from the seventies and of course I love your Alfa! Well played! Thank you for your participation! Hagwe! Abel

a movie not often heard of....but a feast, a feast of food, drinking, friendship, dedication and good old values....

 By: Izhik : June 23rd, 2019-02:12
and if I would be invited to that feast, or at least go to see the movie these days....from obvious reasons I would wear only one watch.... ...
