finds at the car show

Today we went to a car show.

I love car shows.

I'm such a boy.

Mainly its cause I spent years and years living in the 50s... not literally! I danced rock'n'roll both for pleasure and for competition, and vintage cars and r'n'r go hand in hand. 

I used to dream of owning one of these:



Sigh...

But right now, I'd love one of these:



Or these:


Or these... not so much in the fin department, but the wider, flatter, bigger cars. So cool.


Mind you, I wouldn't knock back one of these:


Or one of these:



So cute.

But I have a thing about trucks now too... like this:



Or this.... drool.


This one was for sale. Only $32k. I gave Wayne permission to buy it. 


Sometimes I'm such a boy!

Anyway, we didn't buy the truck, but I still managed to spend my money (and some of Wayne's!... ok, all of mine and all of Wayne's...)

I got this cute sign which will find a spot in my workshop.


And these cute rusty items, cause you know how much I love rust!


What about that light globe!!! Isn't it adorable? I don't care if it doesn't work (which I doubt it does)... I'm going to hang it over my desk and just admire it!

These little tins (full of old greasy stuff) were intended for Wayne's garage but for now...


They're sitting on top of one of the 'shelves' I put in my workshop.


Last but not least are these wonderful foundry molds/cogs. They're solid timber and I love them! Sorry the photo's a bit blurry but you get the idea.


All in all I'd say it was a good day!

  1. I love the old '50s Chevys with fins! The Bel Air looks to be about as old as I am — born in '56. Poo Poo on the Fords — my dad worked for General Motors! We owned one of those bigger, older, rounder cars, too. Ours was named Victoria. I appreciate the older cars, too. They are practically works of art! Did you see the kid underneath one of the yellow trucks? It looks like he's trying to stay cool!
