Come along with me and lets see some cool classic cars!
I didn't know this show was going to happen during my visit to Ruidoso, New Mexico, but I am sure glad it did.
I'm not sure why I like classic cars so much, maybe because my dad was a mechanic and I saw him work on many of these cars...
or maybe it is because I liked looking at the J.C. Whitney catalog when I had my work done at his shop...dreaming of restoring a car with my dad.
It could also be because they remind me of good times and people from when I was younger and more carefree.
Each car seems to bring back a different memory or feeling. This one makes me think of my grandparents.
This one reminds me a little bit of someone who once tangled with a lion. Sadly, he didn't come out the winner but he did survive. His pickup was a different color though...
This one reminds me of my childhood home in Wichita, Kansas where I saw a gold car like this that often drove past our house.
All of them seem to bring up a memory or a feeling. Do they do the same for you?
Do they make you wonder about the person who restored them?
Or maybe they remind you of a time in your childhood. I think I had an aunt who drove something similar to this one.
I am pretty sure I had family members who drove something like this one too.
Now, this one...it really inspired me...I loved this one.
Of all the beautiful and cool cars I saw at this show, this is the one that called out to me.
It was a surprise for me because usually I am a red convertible mustang girl.
Who knew I would fall for a Ford Fairlane 500?
I can actually see myself owning and driving something like this one. Wow! It still calls out to me.
Isn't this one pretty too? Sigh...that color, those lines...even those wheels...just perfect.
I can imagine my parents driving around in this one when they dated...I don't know if dad actually owned one like this but I know he had several really cool ones in his lifetime.
Ooooooooo, now this one can make a girl squeal...there is just something about that Tiffany box color that just catches a girl's eye.
She is as pretty inside as much as the outside too. What a dreamy car! I think I could drive this one too.
I bet this one would be fun to pack all your friends in and drag Main...did you ever do that as a teenager? We did. Those were great times...of course gas was much cheaper then so we could cruise all evening without a thought of how much gas we were using.
Looks like this one has been to the drive in or the local Sonic...what a gorgeous color...and what gorgeous curves she has.
This one makes me think of the beaches in San Diego, California. I can see some surfers with their surfboard sticking out the back cruising to find some waves or a beach party.
She has such pretty details...remember when white wall tires were the cool look? Those were the days for sure.
Isn't this one pretty? I love how the paint job was done. Very nice.
I know it is probably weird but I am not normally a vette girl. They always bring negative feelings and I don't have any reason why, but this one is sure pretty.
I think I had a neighbor who drove one similar to this one...it sure is cool...I bet it is really fun to drive.
Here are a couple of other girls who were admiring the cars...they were dressed perfect for a classic car show.
They just don't seem to make muscle cars like they used to.
I have to wonder about some of the designers these days. Maybe they should revisit the roots of the car industry a little more.
They might just discover that sometimes you don't need to improve on something that works and looks so well already.
I hope you enjoyed our little tour. I will be back in a few days with a few more pics from the car show...and later with a little tour of Ruidoso.
Until Next Time
