You always say that Chuck even if everyone else thinks it looks like an ad for KFC. Laughing

I think it looks like both! As a matter of fact, I haven't seen Leon or the Colonel in the same place at the same time....perhaps they are hiding in the UK somewhere? Hmmmm

Good looking hat John!
I'm use to pulling my hat down tight.

Any one else with something sporty?

I don't wear it that often...it's on the back seat. I just take it when I'm going to a summer show in hot weather. That picture was taken at The Le Mans Classic in France. You had to dress in the period of the car to be allowed into The Paddock.

Iím not so much into hats. I wear a beanie because its warmer. For long drives with the top down I prefer to wear something with a collar so I donít get sunburned down the back o my neck.

A German style hat would be appropriate, and seeing as it is Oktoberfest season perhaps something like this would do ...

Hi Redlabel6;
You are riding in style with that hat.
I took several pics of your Ghia yesterday at the
TCVC outing. Great day, Great time.

You are riding in a "Labor of Love"
