I've never managed to get to a serious Cruise-In before this past weekend, and honestly, I had no idea that this one was a large as it is. I've never seen so many vintage vehicles in one place, and after 1-1/2 hours we still hadn't seen them all. This picture shows only a fraction.
There were very few cars without the hoods up (which I understand), and they were so packed in that I took several 'artsy' shots to capture what I wanted.
This paint job was just snazzy....
The 'Pink Lady'. I love this! I learned after sending this picture to my FIL that hubby's grandmother owned one of these babies at one point.
And it may very well be time for a mid-life crisis....I want one of these! lol
They don't make instrument panels like this anymore...
How many of us remember wing windows? They were in the front, and sometimes in the back. Whatever happened to them?
As this car stated; "A work in progress". I loved the sense of humor apparent with the various signs. This one in particular caught my eye...."Authentic Oregon Rust". You'd have to live here to understand.
Maybe I've watched Pixar's movie Cars too much, but doesn't this look like Ramone? lol
And this car definitely has a 'face' with personality....lol
It's that time of year when nearly every weekend can be taken up by a festival, art show or fair of some kind.
We had such an eventful weekend that I'm going to have to post about it over the course of two days, either that or have one post overloaded with photos. lol
On Saturday we drove down to Salem to the Art Fest, which we had never attended before. It was spur of the moment since hubby had seen a billboard on the way home from work on Friday. It was a hot day, and we almost didn't go, but decided we'd at least drive down, see how busy it was, and decide whether or not to go in at that point. We figured we'd have a nice drive down at any rate.
It was a huge venue and there was absolutely no parking to be had. We drove around for quite a while until finally happening upon a small space by the upper park block entrance. Thankfully we had driven the Nissan so were able to squeeze into the space with room to spare. Had we taken the truck it would never have happened.
There were fabulous things to see, but almost too much for the eyes to take in. We were on overload after about an hour and certainly did not see everything. Plus there was the Bush House, the art galleries, and the park itself, all which would have taken even more time to fully enjoy.
Our decent onto the festival;
Hubby swatting a pesky photographer out of the way.....(who me?).....
