Cruisers III and NNWM-2K15 Update

  NNWM-2K15 Update:

Another chapter of my NNWM-2K15. I’m writing chapter 37, so here comes Chapter 33.

The next post will contain Chapter 33 of the 2015 NaNoWriMo work-in-progress, and it will go up immediately after this post goes live. It’s password protected. Since it’s been a while, click HERE for the previous stuff.

Please, don’t ask for a password thinking it will make me feel good. Especially, don’t ask unless you’ve read the first few chapters and know that you are interested in reading more. Unless you intend to read it, don’t ask. I will not feel hurt, I will not cry myself to sleep, I will not hate anyone who chooses not to read my effort. I will, however, get a little miffed if I get asked for passwords by a bunch of people, and then only my regular four or five readers read the stuff.

Cruisers Update III:

Continuing with my late reporting on the June 14, 2015, Tri-Lakes Vintage Car show.

Another Mustang, this one a 1964-1/2 . . .

By the way, there is a SmugMug Gallery (HERE) for this, past, and future posts about this show. Also, you can click on the photos to open a larger version in a separate tab or window. Go ahead; try it.

Next up is a 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster.

Next to the 1932 Ford, a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette. Who thinks up these pairings?

There is nothing special about the license plate except, you know, Alaska. That’s a heck of a drive down here.

Perhaps one of the silliest cars from the era was this 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

From the nose that looks like an afterthought to the “spoiler” that looks fit for drying laundry, this made me laugh even back before my automotive industry sojourn. Apologies to anyone who owned this . . . I’m sure there’s an emotional bond  there that I cannot understand. Understand, I’m only ridiculing the looks of the car, not the memories the sight of it might reawaken.

This next car is a 1932 Ford Coupe.

. . . and next to it, a 1969 Pontiac Firebird (when that line still looked decent).

Here’s a few more of the 1932 Ford Coupe . . .

Here’s a comparison of the engine compartments.

Here are a few of shots of the interior . . . I do like the look of the gauges.

I’ll stop here because it’s late and I didn’t sleep much last night (high winds kept us awake most of the night).

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    The hot rodders spend a lot of time and money on that stuff under the hood but I like the shots of the cars with the hood closed, for the most part. I have a little trouble with the aesthetics of the engine. I wouldn’t ask them to close it for a picture, either. I do make an exception for the ’32 Ford, though.

    More great pics, Emilio!
    I love Corvettes! Fell in love with them when I was a little girl…so I always have my eye out for them. Most the guys here who drive them are well-seasoned and look like they’ve earned some $$ in their lives!
    I have a friend who would love that Thunderbird!
    HUGS!!! :-)

    Not like me to go for “oldies”, but Jan’s T-bird is quite awesome! If I try hard enough, I could see myself driving it.

      Still can’t bring myself to like Fords. There’s something about their look that never quite squared with me. But, yes, this car is done up nice, but I think it’s more the interior than the styling.
