TBT – Car Show

I shot this image at one of the classic car shows when I was in Tucson. There were so many fascinating models, but this one stood out for me. I’d absolutely love to drive it. Woo hoo!

And yes, the bear would have to ride shotgun …

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

This week’s photo challenge is just what the title says … from lines to patterns.  Almost everything we see around us has some kind of pattern or lines.  That is, if you look closely enough.  Here’s a few that I have taken in the past that I think fit the bill.

Hubby and I are off to a classic car show tomorrow.  I’ll have pictures, of course, when I get back.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Namaste’

I’m taking a slight detour today from the usual photo-a-day routine. I was cleaning out and moving some of my stored images and found these two. They are from the tour we took of the classic cars a few months ago.  There are a lot of collectors in southern Arizona because of the dry air here which contributes to the lack of rust.

I like cars. I always have. Maybe my brother’s love for them rubbed off on me.  When I was a kid he talked about cars a lot.  The first one we had that I remember him driving was a 1950 Plymouth.  It was just the three of us at the time … my mom, my brother and me.  It was given to us by my grandparents, when they bought a new 1956 Chevy Bel-Air.  Gosh, how can I remember all that when sometimes I can’t remember why I just walked into the next room?

I’ll always remember the good times we had around that old car.  Hope you enjoy these.  Click to enlarge. Namaste’

I got these shots at a classic car show today of a 1957 Thunderbird.  When I was in high school, my best friend’s mother had one of these and we were able to cruise all over the place with it.  We had such a good time in that car.  I don’t think her mother ever knew how fast we drove it out on the highway.  It had a removable hard top that was really, really heavy to take off and put back on for two skinny high school girls.  Ha!  But we managed to do it.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Right, Margo?
