It has come to my attention [thanks Carol!] that I have been remiss in my blogging - where has this week gone! I did get out my camera a couple of days ago, to take pictures of what I've been preparing to sew, but the batteries were dead and I forgot. My machine isn't back yet, no word, I'll have to call them tomorrow.
I have some pictures to share with you. LOTS of pictures, so I won't put them all here! This coming Saturday is the Woodward Dream Cruise, an event that will attract around a million and a half people from all over the world. Woodward Ave is also known as Highway 1, the first numbered highway in the US.
All this week, the cruisers have been gathering. They drive up and down Woodward [where my mom cruised as a teen], and in shopping mall parking lots. The cars are unbelievable. I even saw one from Hawaii! They range from Model T's to 30's coupes, to street rods and muscle cars from the '70's.
Now you know I love retro and vintage - this is right up my alley. My very most favorite car in the world is a '56 Chevy Bel Air, closely followed by the Nomad.
I was born in 1959, so I remember a lot of these cars. I remember my dad had a Chevy with those big fins. I remember how roomy they were, and how, in those big old station wagons, we rode down the farm roads with the tailgate down hanging our feet out the back.
Can you tell me the last time you saw a Maverick???
Well, I saw one today! No Pintos or Gremlins, though.
The Studebaker was awesome.
If you can't get enough, like me, you can see the rest of my pictures at my flickr - or at our local tv station's website, they have an electronic garage where people are parking photos of their cars. It's just amazing. People work on these for a lifetime, and show them off during the cruise.
I'll be back to blogging tomorrow, and visiting your sorely missed blogs - I miss you muchly, my bloggy friends!
