Farley's Photos 2

 

farley018.jpg (110173 bytes) Here's Farley sitting in the background in a photo dating from about mid 1996.  Not an especially remarkable photo of him, but I try to post everything I run across.
farley019.jpg (98876 bytes) Same day as the picture above.  This is my daughter Guenivere.  She was about 1 year old at the time.
farley021.jpg (34324 bytes) This is Farley when he was laid up for a few months waiting for us to be able to afford transmission repairs.  Take a good long hard look, this is a rare photo indeed.  He virtually never is in the garage face first, and never has stuff stacked on him.  He was pushed in to this spot and didn't move from August 98 to December 98.   When we finally got another battery in him and dragged him out (on two flat tires) for repairs, it should be noted that he started on the very first crank.  Gotta love the 318.

A pair of photos I found that were taken at the Puyallup, Washington home of Dr. Roy Wright and his sons Brian and Gregory, whom I went to school with.  The important aspect of these pictures is that Farley's odometer showed "00000", just having turned mile number 200,000.  I believe that these date to around 1991, very soon after I got him, which is made evident by the lack of fog lights as well as the overall very good condition of the body.
farley024.jpg (18368 bytes) My favorite shot of Farley, the millennial bigger than life image.
farley029.jpg (260411 bytes) A recent shot of Farley showing many changes that have occurred during the lifetime in my ownership.  Attached in the rear are the official Wisconsin-issued firefighter license plates, with an add-on plate identifying my department.  The blue sticker on the trunk lid has the internet address for Farley's Page (http://farley.lookscool.com).  The new golden interior from Patricia is clearly visible, though be assured that my daughter Genny was not about to drive away here.  You can also see the new rear deck alternating flashing lights mounted in the upper rear corners of the back window.
farley033.jpg (426581 bytes) This and the next 11 photos (going onto the next page) were taken for the article that appeared in Bottom Line Personal's November 1999 issue.

This shows me with Farley, and also shows our other "M" body - my wife's 1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue named Daphne, and our recently acquired 1994 Ford Taurus, which is supposed to tide us over a few months until we can get a newer Chrysler minivan.

This is the one photo that BLP ended up actually using.  Interestingly enough, they used a "mirrored" image of this photo for publication (visible on the article's page here).  Even more interesting is that even though the photo was flipped, they "re-flipped" the license plate characters and FIRE DEPT flag on the bumper so that they appear in the right direction in their magazine.  Weird.  Why not just *not* flip it?

farley035.jpg (318935 bytes) Of the three I thought they would choose from, I think this one is my favorite.  "A man.  His car.  What else is there?"

Actually, there's a lot, but it sounded good for this picture.
