Antique Car Show: Part THREE

You say you haven't ever gone to
antique car show?


Well, then---
go and read the last two blogposts (below this one)
and then come back up
and we
will continue
on your tour, together....

Look at this cute little red car!:

A Crosley...(whatever THAT is!)..
I just know it was adorable!:
(Pay no attention to the lady's reflection in the know, the one holding the camera)

Look at the cool insignia!:

"A fine car"--indeed!

And the dashboard!!

These shiney, shiney Chevy's wheels....
It makes me wanna hum: "drove my Chevy to the levie and the levie was dry..":

It also has the neatest tail lights and rear.
I know.
It sounds like I am obsessed with rears.
I just can't help myself:

I LOVED the suitcases and rack on this classic car....the perfect touch!:

Another gorgeous dashboard:

I know.

I KNOW>>>>>
ANOTHER rear picture.
It's a sickness, I tell 'ya:

And of course, I had to do some of the photos in Sepia.
Because they BELONG to be taken in Sepia.....

So THAT is what the front seat looked like....
who knew?

I seem to remember the back seat's details a bit more...
funny about one's memory, isn't it???

They must have spent a lot of time on their cars, certainly they do not have time for blogging.

There's a diner up the street that hosts "Cruising" on Tuesday nights. Classic car affecionardos come to display their prizes. I'll have to go some Tuesday with my camera and see what I can come up with. Love the wheel with your reflection in the hubcap!

The last car, the Mercury is one I remember more than the others.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Oh My----I truly recognize some of those cars. I've heard of a Crosley --but I guess it's like the Nash (which disappeard)....

The Chevy is from MY day... My boyfriend had one similar to that one... OH--the fun times we had in that car... ha ha

Have a great weekend, Joan.

Bernie said...

I had to go back and see the others Joan and I love your life......these cars are gorgeous. Can you just imagine all the time, work and love put into these vehicles and you have captured it so well with your brilliant photo's. Have a great weekend, big hugs....:-)

Arti said...

The Retired One said...

Rainfield: Perhaps they can do both. ha

Eva:That would be great!

TechnoBabe: It is so nice seeing all of them..I remember my parents having some of these.

Betsy: Oh, do TELL. ha

Bernie: Do you remember any of these in Canada? I remember my folks having some of these models from the 50's.

Arti: I love the little red one too! Hope you have a great weekend.

Bossy Betty said...

Love the colors here! The sepia tone really sets a mood too!

Brian Miller said...

beautiful the styling...the sleek lines...and the dashboards were so cool...mine just seems so bland in comparison...

Mellodee said...

Great cars, great photos, great memories! I especially loved the sepia photo! I've always loved sepia toned photos of vintage things. They make me feel like the past is simply fading away and one day will vanish completely.

I have NO SKILL at all for photography. In fact, I have rotten luck when it comes to photos!! (I wrote about it here ) But I do love seeing others photos.....sooo, you got me! I'm your newest follower!

Biana said...

Wow, Joan I'm absolutely in love with these! Very cool photos!!!

Mike said...

I love this blog!

The Retired One said...

Bossy: I love playing with Sepia and black and white when I do antiques and old cars...they just belong that way, you know?

Brian: That is EXACTLY how I feel! New cars are just blah.... :0}

Mellodee: I am SO glad you stopped by my blog and joined on as a made my day! I will stop by your blog soon to check it out too! And I love the spelling of your name.

Biana: Thanks!!!!

Otin: Back atcha on your blog, Otin!

Prior said...

That old Chevy is beautiful. I love all of the details, like the dashboards, that went into cars back then.
