Who could resist the fun, the gloss, the trips down memory lane in these beauties!
A recent collection of heavy metal in my continuing exploration of New Jersey
With special thanks to Jim Bob for entertainment!
An epoch never to be forgotten, when the time was walking slow. beautiful post…
When driving really was like cruising! Thank you Carlos!
Brilliant set & the last frame is priceless!!!
Thank you Pat, the sparkle of car park paradise!
Yep, the cars are great, but I Want That Chair.
Holy f***in s***. My past in pictures. New Jersey actually serves a purpose, to give you a place to glorify with your camera.
Tom, is that you in the red baseball cap? Cute!
The photos brought back memories of my first car, a 1950 Ford V8 single spinner. The brakes were dodgy and I earned little money. I smashed it when my pumping the brake- pedal was too slow to get traction by the brakes on the wheels. I cried for my single spinner. 🙂
Brilliant bit of photographic history.
Ouch Gerard, that sounds awful, and they were such heavier cars back then. Glad you lived to tell the tale!
Love the fins!
Aren’t they great! Imagine the fun they had sitting down at their drawing boards and coming up with all these fantastic details!
They had kind of a space-ship quality to them.
What lovely light on your excellent car photographs. Nice. You make NJ beautiful.
Thank you so much Ruth – it was that lovely rich sunset time of day!
Excellent – and the Jersey plates make it! I love the four guys smiling at you, too.
They had some great stories to tell and they all love their New Jersey!
Oh, NO doubt!!
Wow. Just don’t see that over here.
They are definitely of a time and a place aren’t they?
They were definitely a sight, thank you MBL!
Wow! Such gleaming beauties! What a fabulous set Patti 🙂
Like diamonds! Thank you Madhu – which one would you want to drive away in?
No 13, the ‘Redgal’ 🙂
Oh my Redgal, what a cruise delight that would be!
I’m not a car dude, but these are cool, Patti!
I’m not a car dude either John but then I see cars like this and I realise how slippery the slope into car dudism would be . . .
beauties, and you really caught the atmosphere
All that was missing was the keg and the bbq – they had the music!
I love all the classics, especially the ones with the big fins! Thanks for the wonderful photos!
What’s the point of a classic if you can’t have decent fins to go with it! 🙂
the symmetry of your first shot is great –
and maybe (is that allowed to say?)
the arrogant “kiss my ass” attitude …
You are allowed to say anything you please dear Frizz although I am sure the El Dorado Biarritz is sobbing at the thought of bearing such an attitude of arrogance in light of its pretty, well turned and decorative rear!
So much beautifully captured style, Ms. K! Awesome! 🙂
The style is all in the metal, thank you SiG! Imagine all the garages across the US hiding such treasures!
Fun post Patti, and great snaps! We have the Woodward Dream Cruise in our area every year. People come from all over the country to attend. Have a great long weekend! Margie
Now that would be something to look forward to and worth another wonderful trip to Detroit! You enjoy your week-end Margie – I just know you will, whatever your plans!
Great pictures!! Thanks for sharing!
My pleasure, thank you so much gallegoara!
Whenever in Holland, let my know and i will take you for a ride in our vintage Citroën DS..
Thank you so much Han for your kind and generous invitation! One day soon I hope!
Aren’t they just! Glad you think so Cardinal!
It’s probably my age, but cars were just better looking then, I think. Great, sun-soaked shots, Patti!
Richard, I don’t care how old anyone is but I can’t think of a car on the road now that would stop me in tracks for its good looks . . .
Patti, such a fun event. Great snaps! We have the Woodward Dream Cruise here every year where people come from all over the country to partake in the fun. Margie
Very sweet of you to say, thank you so much Elena!
Great work, love those curves.
A man of taste!
that’s entirely debatable. Wife #1 would disagree!! LOL
Oops . . . 😦
A great subject captured by your fine photography!
You are too kind Susan and I just know what fun you would have had with your fine eye!
Heavy metal ? Led Zeppelin and Grand Funk Railroad.
Jackpot! The first record I bought was Led Zeppelin Houses of The Holy which didn’t go down too well at home where we said the Rosary every night and Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the Kennedy’s were family.
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 11 and THE best 13.
RedGal was definitely the star of a good sunset show and so good to have your company here, thank you Allan!
My neighbor restores vintage ( well – 1950’s – 1970) cars as a hobby. He and his wife goto car shows and display his handiwork. It takes years to do one car. He sews the leather seats and everything else. The collectors drive around and – literally – cruise downtown with them. A quick spot loacted and they are ready to chat about the old days.
There’s a hobby for everyone. I’ll have to remember to take some shots of his cars one day.
Love the photo’s.
p.s. I guess you’ve gathered that I’m trying to catch up on your many posts I’ve missed. Too manygreat bloggers and not enough time. ~~~~ : – )
