Classic Cars

I found just the thing to sit in front of the vintage farmhouse; an antique vehicle!


Jeff and I stopped at the Cruise-In being held in the shared parking lot of the local Arbys and Steak 'n Shake. There are a lot of car shows in this area, but they always tend to be on days we are unavailable. We were driving by Saturday evening and there was just a bit of light left at dusk when we spotted the show. I love anything old, so Jeff heeded my pleas and did a quick U-turn so we could wander the show for a few minutes.

The cute pick-up above would be just perfect at the farmhouse. The subtle buttercream paint job even matches the color I want for the kitchen cabinets! I could carry home all my home improvement needs and curbside finds in its lovely bed.


This beauty would be just right as Jeff's commuter vehicle. The seats looked quite comfortable for those long moments stuck in traffic! And fellow engineers would love to peak under the hood at all the shiny contraptions contained within.

I think I really should have been born a few generations ago. Then old houses and vintage cars would have been new and everyone would have had one!


  1. WOW! Now, you're not actually buying these are you??

  2. I wish! No, we have plenty of vehicles. Jeff barely has time to change the oil on our current "fleet", let alone maintain something this old.

    Hmmm, but now that I think about it, the farmhouse does have a very large shop, and what man doesn't need an old clunker to restore as a hobby...?

  3. I could totally see both of you in your respective classics. How fun it would be, especially that truck in front of the farmhouse. :)
