Antique Car Show: Final Episode


You have suffered through enough
of my antique car show photos.

Today will be the last of the series...
for now....

But HOW can you not LOVE a good rumble seat???:

Or a roadster's tire frame:

Or this roadster!:

Or a HOT RED truck!:

I just wanna go for a ride in this.  Just once!!:

As you may have noticed....I kinda love red cars:

And shiny parts of cars:

See what I mean?

And I gotta end with
hood ornament!!!!:


I think I'm done now.

That is...
antique car show....
Don't forget August's FREE PHOTO CONTEST!!
This month's theme

Get your photo into me by midnight, Aug. 31st!!

There was a bit of 'Red' in 'Every' photo Joan, starting with flags in the background of the first photo! I've enjoyed the antique cars!

Eva Gallant said...

This has been a wonderful series of photos! Loved them all and shared them with hubby. Thanks!

Denise said...

The Retired One said...

Wanda: Thanks so much, I loved bringing them to everyone.

I have never suffered through your antique car show photos, I shall be an antique in the near future too.

Arti said...

It has been a wonderful series.. Throughly enjoyed the ride on each of those antique cars.. The roadster is my favorite from this post:)

Bossy Betty said...

DO we really have to leave the car show? Do we? I've had fun here.

Bernie said...

I love seeing these old cars so like Brian I will miss them. My favorite color car is red also Joan, especially a 67 Mustang. (Old memories my friend) Big Hugs.....:-)

Mellodee said...

They may not be fuel efficient, clean running, environmentally friendly, or any thing like that, but who cares? They're beautiful and they had STYLE!! Gorgeous!

Loree said...

Oh I so want that roadster. I can see myself in the parking lot at work. Everyone's jaw would drop open. Oh and that red Ford truck .... believe it or not, you'll still see a truck or two from that era on our roads.

Pat Tillett said...

Thanks Joan! I didn't suffer at all. I'm lucky enough to own an old vehicle myself!
you posted a lot of great photos of some "vintage iron." They don't make 'em like that anymore!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Joan, I want that red car (next to the last picture).... It looks like one that my brother had in the '40's. His was black though--but his had one of those sun visors also... Love the RED one though!!!!

Thanks for sharing.... I also love that huge old red truck!!!!

What a wonderful set of pictures, I feel as if I've had the priviledge of riding in all those old, and beautiful cars.
Such a fascinating era.

Linda Reeder said...

Old cars had such class and style. And the hood ornaments! Wow!

Ratty said...

I think I like the truck. That's mostly because I grew up around more trucks than cars. My dad has always had a pickup. I think I appreciate the old cars and trucks more now than I did when I was a kid. They have more personality than any of the newer ones.

Far Side of Fifty said...

They just don't make vars like these any more..I love all the red ones too! I really enjoyed all your photos..well done! :)

SquirrelQueen said...

The old truck is so cool, I wouldn't mind have one like that. It's hard not to turn and look at something in red. Great series of photos Joan, I really enjoyed you visit to the car show.

Yours may have come to an end but our car show is next month.

The Retired One said...

Eva: Thanks, hope your hubby loved them too!

Denise: You are welcome..I took many more photos, but thought everyone would be too bored to see THAT many on the blog.ha

Brian: I am so glad you shared them with him..that makes me happy.

Rainfield: Haha..I am an antique already...because the definition of an antique is anything 50 years or older. :0}

Arti: I loved that roadster too..wouldn't it be fun to go on the beach with it?

Bossy: Believe it or not, I had MORE photos from the shows, but I didn't want to bore everyone with more than four posts full of them.

Bernie: thanks, Sweetie..It was fun going to see them in person too.

Mellodee: they sure DID!

Loree: I think if I had that roadster, I would SKIP by and wave at them and head out on the road. LOL

Pat: they sure don't !!

Betsy: I will try and steal it and drive on down to Tennessee and pick up you and George and we will go waterfall hunting. LOL

Brit: It was a fascinating era, but then again, I would have missed my microwave and DVD. ha

Linda: The hood ornaments are my favorite thing on those old cars and trucks.

Ratty: They sure did, along with gymormic SPRINGS when you rode on a bumpy road, right?

Far Side: Thanks, so glad you liked them!

SquirrelQueen: thanks so much...glad you can get to a car show in person...I will be waiting for YOUR photos then. ha

I have a soft spot for vintage Fords just like you. As I browsed your collection of car show photos, I just know that I found someone who shares my admiration for the best British vintage car manufacturer. Old coupes and roadsters attract me the most. How about you? =)
