    I would sooo drive that! Back when building cars was fun instead of the painful upkeep these days, a Pinto was often considered. Squeeze in a 289/302 with a 4 speed manual? It'd eat Honda, Toyota, or most any modern front wheel drive rides.
    Laa Laaa Laaa! I'm not listening!! Cabinet's full.

    Joe, your comments about Cremo prompted me to check out the products in the shaving aisle today. I have used the Neutrogena brush less shave cream in my travel kit, and it performs adequately. I've also used the Nivea post-shave balm, and it's pretty good too. It nice to know you can grab some decent products locally. When you're traveling and need a quick/proper shave, a Trac II and brushless shave cream will most certainly do the job. It works for your carry-on bag too.

    Out of curiosity, I took whiffs of some of the classic aftershaves. Some guys here use Aqua Velva Ice Blue and Brut, but I could not associate a scent with the brands. Once I completed the sniff tests, I realized they were indeed very familiar. I've used Stetson cologne in the past, and it was my favorite aftershave of the three. I didn't crack open an Old Spice bottle. I've used this in the past as well. I like the looks of the bottle better than the actual scent. It's a bit too spicy for me. Lastly, I always keep a container of the Afta electric pre-shave on hand. It has a decent "modern" scent, and it's a must have to avoid razor burn when I use my electric razor.

    It was a fun way to spend a few minutes and stay out of trouble while my Bride searched for Euro Pillows. I learned a long time ago that it would not be a good idea for this old Kentucky boy to tag along with her and eventually question why we need Euro Pillows. Of course we need them!!!! At least she's not dragging me to Bead Shows like @clint64. I got the look when she saw I wasn't with her, and she had to search for me, and then I told her about my aftershave experiment. Best I can tell, she ain't an Aqua Velva girl. What do you expect from someone who uses Euro Pillows? ;)

    Oh yeah, it looks like they got a load of Barbasol in just before the weekend. :)

    I like it, Terry! And my style continues to evolve. That's just the way it is with us Renaissance Men. Being a trend setter is not for the faint of heart.

    Thank you Clint! I think you contributed to this shave. Didn't you send me that Whipped Dog High Mountain knot?
    Thank you Blair! I lucked up on that Single Ring at one of my local antique stores. Actually got three of them that day from the same shop owner- an '06, that '20, & a '21. When you are out visiting your shops, check and see if they keep a "wish list" that stall renters might view. When you visit those shops, don't be shy about asking for shaving related stuff. I'm that razor guy to the owners or employees at every shop I visit.
