    Gorgeous painted bunting -- we don't get those here. :/

    The crow decoy is a great idea!

    That was first and only time I have seen a Painted Bunting. Lucky to get the photo.

    I wanted to buy one of those but never could afford one.

    I love the style.

    They were way overpriced and underpowered. My '88 was almost $30,000 on the sticker. That is the reason they didn't sell many of them in the four years they were produced. They were a car ahead of their time. It has a touch screen in the center of the dash that controls the HVAC, radio and trip computer. Unheard of in those days.

    @TennMan - Didn't an Oldsmobile with almost the same body style have the touch screen as well? I can't recall what the model was (it wasn't the Toronado) but I do remember seeing them BITD. (Around 1987/'88, IIRC)

    I stand erected......er, uh.....corrected. Apparently, it was the Toronado. Specifically select Toronado Trofeo's.

    ....and yes, back then? This was pretty high falutin' stuff in a vehicle.

    Yeah, I had forgot about those. Never saw one before. The same year Riviera had the touch screen too but they built on the same platform as the Reatta with the addition of a back seat and a different body.

    Wasn't the Reatta built on the same platform as the Cadillac Allante?

    I bought a new tiller to dig up a sections of garbage grass I've had for 30 years.
    It's a Sun Joe TJ604E. What a GREAT electric tiller. ;)

    I destroyed the dense, hard grass in an afternoon and bagged 5-50lb. bags of it.

    Now to put Centepede sod or seed down.

    Here's the next section to get tilled soon. It has mostly crap grass that has dense thick roots and rock hard top pan too.

    Maybe so. They were built about the same time period. The Allante was the big brother that had a V8 in it.
