Vintage, Classics, and Just Plain Old

Prize: 50,000 Site Credits

End Date: May 28th at Midnight (EST)

Last month it was all about newness. This month we'll go in the other direction and go with things that have had a chance to age and mature a bit. And since everything gets better with age I'm hoping for some pretty cool pics this month.

In keeping with the theme I thought y'all might like a little Sinbad. This standup routine (not just this clip) is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Hope you enjoy.

I know #10 is odd and possibly tough... but they can't all be easy. Let the games begin.



If you haven't read the rules go ahead and get a cup of coffee, a comfortable chair, sit back and enjoy the read. :D

"a couple in their 60's or older" Doesn't seem that hard to me. It just seems like a good excuse to visit parents/ grandparents.

me too, the only one I'm really having an issue finding is the older model bike. I may have to start calling people in the want-ads to see if they'll help me :BLAA:
I had issues with the car.....I followed this couple for 'miles' hoping they would park somewhere so I could take a pic of their car! :eek: I could have gotten the car & the older couple in one swoop! :D

I was able to get just a couple today. I was aiming for 5 but only got 3 so far...
I'll try to get some more tomorrow (hopefully 3 more) and post them at once

I think I found the right age bike, not really sure cause it was on a random road missing parts. Now I need to get the car and old people.

Well, these are the ones I have so far.

Regarding the Historic Landmark:
"The LaGrange church first begun in 1869, is the oldest church between New Smyrna Beach and Key West"

Hey guys,

I like the idea of this scavenger hunt very much. I won't be able to ride much the next days, so I'll give it a try in June!

Good luck for you all this month! :thumbup:

ONE MORE DAY :eek:

Come on, don't take away the long weekend :thumbup:

I'm on a real "hunt" now, I ran out of places where to find the pictures I'm missing...I might have to get some ideas here :D

On top of that, it has happened like twice to me, when I'm driving the car, I've seen "old" cars around, but not when I'm on the bike :( Now, the "old" bike is more difficult than what I thought it could have been

Good luck to everybody :rockon:
