Cat owners at a gas stop

#1

So, last week on my way home with my Comp Green Eliminator from MI, on my last stop near Clarion, PA off Rte 80, a guy comes up and is looking around the car...

"Nice car - whaddya got in it"?
"351 Cleveland"
"I like the color. I have a 428 car at home - right down the road"
"Cool - what color"
"Same as this - Comp Green. "How long have you had it"
"Ummm - about 7 hours" :lol:

As we're talking - another guy comes over and goes "Nice car - is it a real Eliminator?"
"Yes"
"I have a 67 XR7 at home. I go to car shows and I'm the only Cougar there"
"Do you know this guy - he has a Cobra Jet Eliminator"
"No - we haven't met before..."

So, there we were - three Cougar owners from different places, pulled together for a few minutes by a car on a trailer at the gas station.
We chatted for a couple minutes - they wished me luck with the car any my ride home - and off I went.

The CJ owner looked familiar. I have to wonder if I had spoken to him at some point at Carlisle over the years.

Hey Mike - I'm not too far from you. Hellertown, and johnque is a little south of both of us.

Ah cool yeah right up 309 from me. Good luck with the new Eliminator, I'm sure I'll see you at some car shows in the area. I usually make it to the Q-town dairy queen shows on Sunday nights.
