Beetles and Mustangs and Chevys, oh my!


This past weekend I trundled along to a local classic car show. I love classic cars. Something about them gives me the same kind of visceral reaction in my tummy as when you have a crush on someone - when you know  you're looking at a thing of beauty. I do not understand guys getting excited by modern cars, a la The Fast and the Furious, but show me an old classic and, hubba hubba. 

The show was a little disappointing. For the entry price, I expected a lot more cars, but it was pretty small - I couldn't have been there more than an hour. Even so, there were some damn sweet rides, which had me swooning and yearning for the open road. 

Oh, they also had the Delorean from Back to the Future!





























The turquoise and white Chevrolet was my favourite - I love, love, LOVE classic Chevys. Ohhh, how I long for my own classic roadster!

  2. We have quite a few things like this at home and they are often combined with tractors and heavy horse shows. For me, I like my tractors ;)

    1. They are very cute! American classics are my favourites too. They are far too big for British roads though! x

  6. I totally know what you mean about that tummy feeling. My boyfriend is obsessed with cars and I just don't get the love for modern cars at all. The ones you did see are beauties! I love that little yellow Fiat the most <3
