Somewhere in time
Driving downtown this weekend we saw an unexpected site! I blinked and shook my head. Had I been transported back in time? These were Model A's weren't they? They lined the street. It was an amazing site. Upon further investigation I saw it was a club!
They were beautiful! I'm not a big car fan, but I could get into owing one of these. It seemed they were out for a drive and stopped at a famous landmark, The Superior Dairy.
Superior Dairy is a locally owned ice cream shop that is famous for their ice cream and 50's style look. They do make a great lemon and peach ice cream, but I digress!
Back to my story, we drove by the cars and were stunned! I didn't have my camera, so my husband dutifully went home to pick it up. I mean, blog fodder is hard to find not to mention the rarity of the site!
Look at that! I look at it longingly. Start thinking, maybe it would be fun to own one. But then reality hits! No air conditioning! It is a 97°. So that thought is gone. But then I saw this
I guess we aren't the only weirdos! :D
Hard to make out, I know, but it is Mickey & Minnie in the rear window. That's my cute husband taking the picture! I feel like it is one of the artsy photos my son likes to take!
Thanks Sierra Chapter for the fun surprise today! Your cars and trucks are beautiful!
