Reflections: The Way We Were

Ah Ooogah

Once upon a time, automobiles were works of art as much as they were machinery. According to its sign, this restored 1933 Auburn is the last of its kind. And that's a cryin' shame.


One of a Kind

She is a beauty. These automobiles have a certain sensuality that is missing in our modern cars.

The cars of that era were handmade works of art. Design was essential to the overall appeal of the car. Great first photo.

My Maraca, whether you want to play along or not, I awarded you the versatile blogger award. You can read about over at my place.

Ignore if you wish. I know these things can get tiresome.

What a wonderful car. I love that red colour. They will never make perfect cars like that again - and it's good that some people keep them fit. I love to see old films from the thirties - or those new perfect made English TV-series: Miss Marple and Poirot and a few others. Here is really an opportunity to see some of those magnificent cars.
Beautiful photos!
Cheers

When Joe and I lived in Ft. Wayne we went to this car show (I bet it's the one!) in Auburn IN. Can't remember the name of the show, but it was so much fun! The auction was unbelievable!
