(I am putting the entry on early, not sure of the signal in the mountains, getting two tires for our home then heading to cooler temps.)
Shirl knows I love old cars, or just classic cars. She found a place called ‘Today’s Classic Cars’ cars on consignment. We took a tour. We had a ball. Shirl had been in Charlotte for 50 yrs. I have been in and out all my life. BUT things change. She had no problem finding the place and we walked in, awwwwww my favorite car in the world was sitting there:
a 1953 MG hill climber. Just $30,000. (I think Shirl is getting it for me for Christmas! LOL)
Walking down the line we saw a Studebaker Lark
And some older VW’s
The girls love the Corvettes
Especially this 55 or was it a 60? There were so many beautiful cars. Thunderbirds when they were actually THUNDERBIRDS!
This Monte Carlo was the most perfect car.
For all of us, this Rambler Ambassador was a treat, That was Dad’s pick of cars.
We had a discussion on the ‘57 Chevy below, Shirl was tellling me about when she and dad were looking for her a car and he was not about to pay $3000 for a ‘57 Chevy
(This one was priced at about $60,000)
My favorite car growing up was the ‘55 Chevy this one was only $45,000,huh? But the red is nice!
This Hot Rod had a flat, Shirl wanted to fix it, She is a fixer.
Like this Jeep she wanted to fix where the Squirrels had eaten the fire wall:
This was great shot of my girl and the ‘40 Ford Pickup
A yellow 1941 Pontiac, a neat classic, I never remember seeing one.
But the real classic, a 1940 For Coupe. Bobby Ferguson of Belmont had one of these, a jet black one, the nicest in town. He would probably frown at this color.
There were more cars than I can show, BMW’s, Mercedes, Ford 500’s etc. You can see the corner of a beautiful ‘49 Ford here beside the ‘56 Chevy Nomad.
The funny thing was when we left. We decided to stop at Starbucks to be ‘cool’. But we could not find it. Shirl took us a tour of that side of Charlotte until we found it. We had a great time laughing and cutting up as Shirl whizzed and done u-turns in traffic.
We found it, had a snack and headed home. It was a good day. I just love old cars.
Thanks for riding and walking with us.
