I am always looking for new places to visit and interesting sights to see.
You already know I love our incredible coast and mountains;
you may know I also love our high desert too.
But did you know I love historical vehicles and cars from my childhood?
Yep! And recently, when I was looking for a place to visit on our Sunday drive I found out
that a small city to the southwest of Portland was having an old-fashioned festival,
with a historic fire truck event and a cruise-in for historical and other vehicles.
Heavenly, I thought--
and after a bit of persuasion,
off we headed
(we being the Farmer Boy and I).
Now women--please tell me you don't find this appealing?
Look at those lines...
and that gorgeous color.
And patriotic too!
Or how about this?
I LOVE red;
I would love to be driving this baby around!
Look at those dials...
the steering wheel...
Of course, this one might be a problem as I have never been able to
master driving a car with a stick shift--just ask the 2 men who tried to teach me
(no, we didn't end up in the ditch. Close does not equal 'in').
Can you drive one?
There were quite a few vehicles there--and some very proud owners.
Who can blame them?
The admirers consisted of young people,
(like this young man)
and us middle aged people!
And yes, guys and gals:)
My hubby used to have one of these --
same year; different color!
But his didn't have a surprise under the hood:)
I liked this sign.
Yikes, almost forgot the classy, classy really old vehicles--
there were a couple of them,
but I couldn't get a photo of the other without people in them.
Sorry--it was very nice and even had a name:)
The last photo
(yea I know it was a long post,
but at least I was short winded)
Hope you enjoyed cruisin' with Aimee and the Farmer Boy!
Have a wonderful Wednesday...
I will be house cleaning.
