I picked 1960 because that the year I was born. On the last target I looked up car clubs and the Corvette club was meeting today at the Calif. Auto Museum. When I pulled up I knew I was in the right place.

Thought I had it here but upon googling I find the Galaxie only started in '59. So I guess this probably won't count unless some classic car expert here can tell me if this happens to be a '59!

The '59 still had "wings" along the rear quarters, so unfortunately that is not a '59.

I think that might be a '62 or '63. I'm leaning toward '63, due to the leaning grille.

That's a cool restored cop cruiser though.

You must have been close to Mayberry or Mount Pilot......I half expected to see Andy Taylor or Barney Fife hanging around somewhere near......very cool find, just barely missed it....

That's in Leiper's Fork TN...about 30 minutes south of Nashville. It's right off the Natchez Trace Parkway so it tends to attract a lot of motorcycles. Here's where I had lunch (my bike's in there somewhere...7 or 8 from the front

Next, your bike and a baseball backstop.....but not just any backstop. Find one on a practice field or empty lot, without bleachers or dugouts.

Two backstops one with everything and one all by it lonesome. Next your bike with a bridge over water, Troubled or not.

Good find. I half way considered making that target a little more restrictive when describing it by excluding backstops on municipally owned parks, but decided not to.

There was a bridge over water target a while back and I got that one just a little over a mile from the house. The channel the water is usually in is man made and used to distribute water mostly for fire-fighting purposes to the many petro-chemical manufacturing facilities located nearby. Only difference now is the water has all been drained out and there's not even mud anymore. I guess that's one way to get rid of the invasive water hyacinth and giant salvinia that was growing out of control in it.
