I couldn’t resist getting this shot today as I pulled into the parking lot of a store. When I realized how many cars were actually in the parking lot, I decided to get the heck out of there, thinking about the long lines inside at the cash registers. Did I mention that I absolutely despise Christmas shopping?
Anyway, below is the car. I believe it’s a vintage Ford because it has our state’s classic license plate, reserved for cars manufactured at least 25 years ago. I think this one qualifies.
Almost to the end of our 366 project. Can’t wait to see how my fellow 366’ers finish up this year. Namaste’
I had lunch today with my favorite uncle and it was really nice to see him. As we walked back to our cars, I spotted this Rolls Royce. I don’t know what year it is, but it had the Arizona classic plates on it. While photographing the hood ornament, I flashed back to the all of the 1920’s movies, and the music of Puttin’ on the Ritz.

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’
