All of a Sudden, I Bumped into a... Classic Car Show!
Just a Peek into the Past...Click thumbnail to view full-size
We were out driving around, when...
We found something to do, this evening.
It was one of those day's, girls. You'll know what I mean. After working out in the yard, getting indoor chores done and trying to find yet something else to make for dinner. The husband popped the question... "What are we going to do, tonight?" This is the same question my husband likes to ask me, many, many times, during the week. He especially likes to ask me that same question, but with emphasis, on the weekends. After all, I'm his tour guide, entertainment and social event planner, aren't I ? Or so he seems to think that I am, anyway. I know, I know, I spoiled him. In my younger days I had enough energy for three people. He was so cute back then, I would have done just about anything for him. Now, in my golden years, I find it harder and harder to come up with that rabbit that I used to pull out of my hat.
Usually I can come up with something after searching the local events from the internet. Tonight he wanted to go to the beach and walk on the boardwalk. I was up to it, however, my foot was hurting, so I was trying to think of something quick, before he turned onto the highway on the way to the beach.
What a surprise... for us both.
On route to the beach, we stopped at a gas station and I caught a glimpse of some classic cars that were parked in a nearby shopping center, on the green grass, facing the highway. "Look, sweetie... a car show!" I said as loud as I could. His head whipped around so fast that you would think a 6 foot, blonde right out of the Miss Universe contest was nearby. I actually smiled as we turned out of the gas station and into the parking lot.
Now, being one of the few women who can't tell a Ford from a Chevy, this was a big deal for me, to even mention that we should go take a look at the pretty colored cars. The sun was shining, so it was hard to take some of the pictures that I would have liked to put in this hub. I just couldn't get the right angles. So please forgive me for chopping off some of the parts of the cars that you guys like to take such a good look at.
Reverse... Jack in the Box.
My husband stuck his head in and out of EVERY car in the show. He loved to smell the inside and look at all of the interior thing-a-ma-gigs in each car. At first I thought he was fooling around. Nope, he was actually having a great time.
What's in a Name?
I need your help, guys. Please let me know what some of the names of these cars are. I only know one or two. I know the Chevy Chevelle, because my boyfriend... way back then, had one. Oh, we never got to go anywhere because he never got it to run. So we would just sit in it and talk about where we were going after he got it on the road. I met someone else who actually had a working car, so that was the end of that. My very favorite car, of all time is... The Bel Air. If I was a car, I would definitely be a Bel Air. I hope you enjoy the show as much as we did. It took us back... way back. To a better time and place.
Until we meet again... Francesca27
