Okay, so the Bentley's and the Roll's were pretty neat. How about some good old American iron at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club car show?
Why, of course. Come along and walk with me.
This wasn't a drivers seat, it was a cockpit of a rocket.
For old school, this 1935 Cadillac Series 21 is awefully stylish and classy. I love the paint scheme on this one. I'm not sure if they were ever painted this way in reality, but this sure looks nice.
I will always be a fan of the old Volkwagen Bugs. I had two of them growing up. They were cheap to buy and almost maintenance free. Today they have appreciated in price that is astounding, considering they made gazillions of them. I took a picture of that interior in the top picture mainly because I remember it. The perforated seats and sparse features was pretty neat. Of course I would have loved the Beverly Hillbillies truck had that been my only option.
Cute little 1966 Sunbeam Tiger. There is no way I would want to try to get in and out of this thing nowadays but I'd be glad to store it in my garage. And maybe try to take it for a spin every so often to keep it greased up. With the top down. And maybe to a car show just so i could grab a trophy for the owner. Just a little a service I would provide for free.
Neighbor Tim sent me some pictures of an AMC Pacer he saw in Sterling last week. I'll get those posted one of these days. I told him you never see them or Mavericks or Pintos at car shows. I take that back. Here is a 1970 Ford Maverick in perfect condition. These were a dime a dozen back then, but rare and worth a lot today.
Tis the season to be jolly and walking around a car show in Florida. This red Corvette was decked out in a seasonal Christmas moose.
I got a T-shirt from the event and will try to make it again next year. Nice stuff out here.
