Shiny objects...the finale...

...and a new peak of randomness to the photos.

Something that always catches my eye is a classic hot rod: '32 Ford, "flathead" V8 engine with proper old-time speed equipment, Ford steel wheels with proper hubcaps, and all the trimmings...



I'm always drawn to early Porsches, too. I wish this mid-50s 356 Cabriolet's owner had put the top down, though...



The most beautiful Lamborghini ever, the wonderful Miura. The V12 engine is set crossways behind the passengers; it is one of the most enjoyable cars I've ever driven...



Finally, here's a lousy photo of a '55 Mercedes-Benz 300S Cabriolet, about as elegant a design as was produced in those days...



Fortunately, I just happen to have a similar 300S here, and was able to make a clearer photo at home...



No more cars. For a while.

I wanted that blue 356. *pouty lip* Oh well, maybe Joan can give me a ride. :)

Out of all of these in this post, I think I like the very last one best. :)

MrScribbler said...

Cheri -- It's certainly the least expensive of all the cars in this post!

Cheriann said...

Haha, guess I've got cheap taste. REALLY cheap!! :)

I just can't decide whether I want the little blue one or that last black one...hmmmm, tough one.
