Antique Car Show: Part ONE

We attended two antique car shows this summer.

I just love going to them.

So for the next few posts,
I
will be sharing photos
of them with you.

Don't ask me the names or years of the cars....
I am worse
at naming them
than I am
of naming wildflowers.
LOL


But I know I love them all.

Their classic lines,
their colors,
their grills...
their interiors...
everything about them!



Look at this beautiful BLUE CONVERTABLE!!:





Loved, loved, loved it's grill!:





And the dashboard!:




Look at THIS classic beauty!:





Shouldn't Bonnie and Clyde be in there somewhere?:




This red spare on the rear of this car
had me
the minute I saw it!:





And the ART DECO side windows?
Help me Rhonda!:





Somehow, it just looks more natural
in
black and white.
Right?:

Stay tuned....
I will be doing a few more blogposts
with more pictures
of these beautiful cars!!

Now that's how to build cars! Beautiful! And the BW does look more authentic.
Gotta comment on the protruding knobs, steel dashboards, no seatbelts, spoke steering wheels. But those cars were tanks! And with Mom's arm protruding arm as protection, who needs airbags!?!

Eva Gallant said...

Great Photos! looking forward to more.

We maybe as "antique" as the cars.

Sharon Wagner said...

What a blue beauty!

Alan Burnett said...

Fantastic machines - expertly captured. That last picture is just right - and perfect for monochrome.

Pat Tillett said...

Works of art...
They just don't make 'em like that anymore!
Sad...

Loree said...

Beautiful, Joan... We love seeing the old antique cars also. We saw some when we were visiting Yorktown several years ago. My brother used to have one which looked a little like the one where you talked about Bonnie and Clyde.

I got my license on a 1950 Pontiac... When I see one of them, I get so excited....

Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to more.
Hugs,
Betsy

I just saw Bonnie and Clyde the other day! Your car pics would fit right in!

Ratty said...

I'm lucky. Living so close to Detroit, we have car shows and cruises, and all sorts of things like that all the time here. But I don't know anything about cars except how to fix whatever I'm driving at the time. I like old cars, but I never learn anything more than the fact that they look nice. Everyone else around here can rattle off anything there is to know.

Linda Reeder said...

Cool cars. Great pics!

SquirrelQueen said...

I really, really love car shows. The one here isn't until next month so your great photos will tide me over until then. The monochrome shot is my favorite.

Bossy Betty said...

These are fantastic! I love the ones of the grills!

Jientje said...

You had fun, didn't you? Love these!

Cathy Clementz said...

Love those blue shots! But the B & W is really interesting! Can't wait for the days till Dan and I can go do and see these things!!!

TechnoBabe said...

These are indeed some groovy cars, and the black and white does look natural.

The Retired One said...

Otin: Thanks! That car just screamed out their names. ha

Ratty: Glad there is someone like ME out there that has no idea of their names or years.

Linda: Thanks!

SquirrelQueen: So glad you liked them.

Bossy: I love looking at "parts" of old cars because they have so much character!

Jientje: Yes, I had fun for sure.

Cathy: I would not like having to stay home at the campground all summer..it would feel like prison to me..so I give you and all the other private campground owners a lot of credit for doing their jobs for everyone else to enjoy summer.

Technobabe: yes, they are all special cars.

James said...

I love seeing old cars like these. What a nice collection.

The Retired One said...

James: Thanks so much..it was such fun being there and seeing them in person.
