Though I am not a car fanatic, I couldn't walk past this beauty without aiming my camera at it.

Varooooooooooooooom!

My dad would be over the moon to get a chance to see a car that old.

Like you, I am not a car nut, but I have aimed a camera lens at details on old cars.

Julie cares a lot more about how our cars look. I once made the mistake, when her car needed two new tires, of going down to the tire store and buying two tires that were similar but did not match the two tires that were already on her car. I had the two matching tires installed on one side, so each side looked the same.

Julie went nuts. I defended myself by saying that no one would notice that the tires were different than the other side because you can only see one side of the car at a time. Who walks 360 degrees around a car looking at the tires?

She did not accept that explanation. I had to go out and get two more matching tires, even though the tires they replaced had plenty of tread on them.

Candy apple red, no less. I drooled over such things when I was 12 or 14. Now I drive a black Honda and just get on with it.

Oh my, a true beauty - they don't make 'em like that anymore! (Why can't functional things always be beautiful?)
