Funny! And not an easy shot to get from across Fair Oaks with no other cars parked there!

Oh boy!! I know this car certainly can't make it over speed bumps. That orange color is fab!!

My hubby wants to build one of those kit car roadsters. I better not show him that photo. :)

I don't know how you always manage to find these old cars. Great shot.

Because all old cars eventually end up in South Pasadena????

This one appears to have been docked at the curb. Judy's right, there's no way it could make it over speed bumps. I don't think this is a kit car. I suspect it's an original body with an unoriginal engine. Cool car.

I was lucky to get this shot since Fair Oaks is usually parked up on Saturday afternoons. Jon, LIttle Bit and I had eaten lunch at Gus's and we all ooohed and ahhhed over that gorgeous old car. It looked like a big toy!

Radio-s. I've been three times trying to find a universal remote to work with my TV. That fellows in my parking space.

I swear. I think you have a sweet deal with some old car dealer. How do you find these? I was right there in So Pas and didn't see a damn one!

I just noticed the Classic Route 66 sign. How perfect is that???

I use to make model cars just like this. Same color too. (And then I moved on to the Rat Fink versions.)

LOL! Man, that is the lowest riding hot rod I've ever laid eyes on. Super composition and fun to see!
