Super photos.
Thanks Matt. Due to the amount of rain in NC I've only wash all 5 cars (not each) a couple times in 5 years compared to when I was much, much younger. Son and I first attempt at a full paint correction with a DA then Ceramic Coat. Wanted Son to have a nice looking low maintenance car while in college.

Off topic but the path? Is that part of the street and if so who or what removed the snow? Never lived in a snow climate.

Great shot of a classic beauty. Sometimes it hits me how 850's really stand out in the crowd nowadays.

It's mostly my 18 year old daughter who is driving our 850. I don't think she really appreciates it yet. When I tell her that she is driving a 25 year old classic car, she only shrugs.

She'll get it when it's too late and the 850 belongs to another family member! That's what happened to me and my grandfather's 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger 318. My uncle took it.
