Hot August Nights


In our area we have an annual event called Hot August Nights. They are all almost uniformly devoted to antique car shows. I had the pleasure of viewing one of the mini-events last night at the nursing center where mom currently is staying. Click

for some fun pictures. Suffice it to say, the more mobile of the old folks got a big kick slowly going through the parking lot and admiring the elegant vehicles. There was a band, the usual picnic foods, free popcorn, and lots of merriment.

Wow! What a beautiful car!

Great car....the link didn't work for me so I didn't see the other photos. We have quite a few antique car owners around here too and they get together at a local hamburger joint. It's fun to cruise through the parking lot and look at all the old cars.

Link didn't work for me either, but I can imagine it anyway. We have these classics visit our area at least once a month during the summer, and they sure bring back some memories. DO NOT LAUGH! How is that working out?

Hummmm, well the link seems to not be working so I pasted the URL directly into the message to see if that works better. I hope so.

Oh, Annie, those photos are great. Thanks for taking them! I always tend to take these things a step further, past, present, future. I used to laugh when Honda rice rockets first came out. Now I wouldn't drive anything but my Civic! (Btw 37-39 mpg.) Successor to the Model T! I love it.
