    Happened to be wearing my Speedmaster Moonphase doing some chores at our summer home, when all of a sudden the Illinois Chain o Lakes/Fox River “Poker Run” occurred.

    This is an end of boating season parade of power boats. I think they run from one marina restaurant to another, drawing a card at each and somehow playing poker. Hence "Poker Run".

    But they sure make for an interesting and LOUD parade. My guess is there were well over 50.

    My favorite was this tricked out pontoon that must’ve been packing over a thousand horsepower and was totally keeping up with the cigarette boats. Must have been going 65 mph (100 kph)!

    And it’s all clean and legal fun as supervised by the local constabulary. YaY!

    Went to an other vintage car show this morning ... Saw this magnificent Alpine Renault A1600 (the little white bug just ahead is mine actually :D ... makes me feel kinda lost in translation !!! ::facepalm1::)

    image.jpeg

    Anyway, this Alpine was sold originally in 1971. The actual owner bought it in 1979 for the now ridicule price of 4000€ - you'll be lucky to find one for 20 times that price nowadays - and still enjoys it daily :cool:

    ... oh wait, look who's coming ...

    image.jpeg

    ... yep, the world famous DrStrong, well known Watchprosite Rolex forum moderator, aboard his beautiful MGB convertible, king of coolness :)

    Let's do the mandatory wristshot then...

    image.jpeg

    Wait a minute ?!? Oh boy ::love::

    image.jpeg

    ... Speedmaster 2998-1, 1959, sporting a wonderful exotic chocolate flavour dial. This quick poor picture certainly does not do justice to the watch :\

    How fortunate ! Friends, vintage cars and watches \o/ - isn't life wonderful ;)
