Antique Crusin' In

On the fourth we went to
an Antique Car Show
at our fairground
It was like taking 
a trip back in  time 
Not to mention a lot 
of fond memories

circ 1942 Packard Convertible

Don't You love the hood ornaments

gotta love the interiors

There even was a pink Caddy
que up
 Pink Cadillac
by Springstein

I love you for your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street

Honey I just wonder what you do there in back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

An Edsel

My first car was a '57 Chevy station wagon
similar to this - 
this is a nomad
mine had 4 doors instead of 2 
and was primer grey
It was stolen and crashed
boy did I love that car

My parents had a  Corvair

They would put down the back seat
when we went to drive-in
which was pretty cool

One of my boyfriends
had an Avanti
I thought it was such a cool car

A friend of mine had 
one of these in blue
boy did we have some fun in that car
driving around the desert

I always wanted a Mustang

One last hood ornament

  1. oh the pink caddie brings back a funny weekend....my dad had bought a caddy and yes was pink......with no reverse in it......but that didn't stop us from going to the beach for a weekend.....we went to a del beach where when you park you must pull in and back out to leave ok so you get where i am going here right?!?! yes all weekend dad and his friend had to push the caddy out of all spaces we parked in.....

  2. WOW - such amazing cars. Hubby and Dad would love them.

  3. ~heart~ the Pink Caddie. My first car was a Cadillac. We owned 3 of them at one time. Complete with a longhorn figurine on Mom's car to replace the lost hood ornament. LOL. It was the Cadillac Ranch :D

    Can you identify the car underneath the Red Pickup? I once saw a solid white one parked in an alley, and it was so "League of Extrordinary Gentlemen" I wanted to know what it was, but no one knew.

  4. aaawwwwwwww......... I love classic cars. so many memories! you photos are awesome. maybe you would like to join us in our Friday My Town Shoot Outs. it is lots of fun!


  5. It must have been a ball to walk around looking at these old cars. Oh the stories that those cars could probably tell!

  6. Cool...the hood ornaments are the best...and the red truck was hot... happy vtt...olive♥

  7. Oh dear... I see TWO vehicles I recognize. Not good!! lol My grandfather had a very similar truck and his was red too. I was probably about four years old. I loved riding in that truck.
    My boyfriend in high school had the pink Cadillac! Yep!! My grandfather even had one of those... but brand new. The boy friend's was probably close to being on its last leg.
    Thanks for the memories.

  8. Jo-What a great way to spend the 4th! My 15 yr old nephews have enjoyed this post just as much as I!!

  9. I love those old muscle cars. I used to have a 350 Chevelle. My boyfriend had a Road Runner! Oh, those were the days!

  10. I do love that Packard and the interior of that beautiful Edsel. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

  11. Oh this is one of my favorite VTT posts ever! All those beautiful cars!

    We used to take the kids to the drive-in in Pennsylvania and one night they had a line up of vintage cars...its was terrific!

  12. What a wonderful post. Brought back mememories. My dad had a turquoise ford fairlane the same color as the edsel. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love old car shows. I'm always amazed at the size of the interiors. You could live in some of them. And thr trunks are ridiculously huge. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I can see you moving on to different boyfriends, but I would have tried to keep the Avanti in the deal. Many memories, not only of riding in these vehicles but in good times at car shows.
