March Fourth and Cruisers VII

People — people who barely remember grade school — might not realize today is the only day of the year that is a command. 

And, since that joke probably fell flat, here are a few things from people funnier than I am.

Now, here are my two most favorites from this past week . . .

Cruisers Update VII:

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

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.

As I previously mentioned, I’ll make a minimum effort to identify a car and provide a link, but if I’ve already covered the model in previous posts or if there’s no readily available Wikipedia entry, the job reverts back to the reader. No . . . I’ll go one better. I’ll identify the car, but if you want to look it up, it’s on you. I say this based on the number of click I got on all the links I provided (hint: not many).

So, first up, yet another Ford Coupe from around the 1930s . . .

I’m really surprised at the high quality of the chassis and suspension components . . . frankly, I didn’t know they did that quality work in the ’30s.

Mostly, though, the fact the headlight is not vertical offended my OCD sensibilities. It was all I could do to walk away before I straightened the thing out.

Next up, a row of Plymouth Prowlers . . . Now, I know there are probably many people who like both the idea and looks of this car. It is a huge understatement saying I’m not one of them. Hence, why I did not get any closer to them things than shown in the following photo.

Here’s another Chevy 3100 Pick Up, this one from 1950. This one in better shape than the previous ones, at least based on how it looks.

Next up, a 1934 Ford Cabriolet . . . 

20150614_DSC9791_1_DSC9791_DIGI

Up next, a First Generation Ford Bronco. I can’t quite make out the tag, but I’ll call it 1969.

20150614_DSC9792_1_DSC9792_DIGI

It’s another car many owners liked . . . never having owned one, I can say I don’t particular care for its looks. 

Here’s another 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. A yellow one.

20150614_DSC9794_1_DSC9794_DIGI

20150614_DSC9796_1_DSC9796_DIGI

Next up, a pretty neat-looking 1967 VW Bug.

20150614_DSC9798_1_DSC9798_DIGI

20150614_DSC9800_1_DSC9800_DIGI

How about a Dodge Challenger R/T? It looks like a First Generation model, so 1970-1974.

20150614_DSC9801_1_DSC9801_DIGI

We then have another pick-up . . . I’m guessing a Chevrolet from sometime in 1959.

20150614_DSC9803_1_DSC9803_DIGI

20150614_DSC9804_1_DSC9804_DIGI

Next up, aa 1948 Ford Coupe . . . 

20150614_DSC9805_1_DSC9805_DIGI 20150614_DSC9811_1_DSC9811_DIGI

Getting back into the red motif, a 1955 Chevrolet 210. Look at that engine . . . I wonder if that’s factory original. 

20150614_DSC9807_1_DSC9807_DIGI

20150614_DSC9809_1_DSC9809_DIGII’m just going to throw the next ones up here since I have guests coming to visit and I need to compose myself . . .

By now, most of you can identify these better than I can. 

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

  1. I much prefer the vehicles looking original cannot abide the way they are mutilated, that’s what I like about that bloke/guy from Connecticut; Wayne and his Chasing Classic Cars. One show on TV that I really enjoy. Wayne is all class himself,

      • An aside, the Americans say “Could care less” Australians and English say “Couldn’t care less”. Actually I couldn’t care less if this interests you or not, however you could care less and what I would like to know is why don’t you care less you must care more if you could care less? Confused? Hopefully :D

        An explanation I read (link at the below) is that:
        “Both are correct. Neither is literal. “I couldn’t care less” is hyperbole. “I could care less” is condescending sarcasm.”

        That comes from this source: http://blog.dictionary.com/could-care-less/

        Another foray into the subject can be read here:
        http://grammarist.com/usage/could-care-less/

        Of course, none of that matters. . . . I never really gave it any thought or consideration until now . . . but now I will always make it a point of saying it in a manner that causes this and other fellers consternation:

    Love that screaming yellow Bel Air. Those were my teen years. But basically I just love seeing all the old cars so beautifully maintained/restored.

    For the record, I’ve always said “I couldn’t care less” because that’s what I mean.

      I find more pleasure and whimsy saying “I could care less”. For one, it implies even more disdain for whatever it is that I could care less about . . . For example, when I say “I could care less about the presidential elections”, read it as “I could care less about the presidential elections, but that means I would have to make the effort to care less, and it’s just not worth my time doing so”. It’s like a double-whammy.

    I don’t make much effort to identify cars when I’m shooting them, either. I know quite a few of the older ones, it’s the newer ones I have trouble with. My favorite on this post: the Chevy 3100 Pick Up. Nice ride.

      Some of them have a lot of on-line information from obvious enthusiasts, but others, not so much. It’s nice to provide at least the name, but, realistically, no one actually clicks on the links I provide. And, rightly so; in this day and age, if one is interested it takes no more than a few clicks to get all they information they want.

      I’ve not hit the car I liked best yet, but the trucks are a close second. Really, any big vehicle would do, although I don’t know if I’d want to go back to driving rear-wheel vehicles. OK for the summer, but a bit of a bother in the winter.

    Beautiful old beasts. My mother dreamed of an old MG convertible and shared her dream with us constantly when we where kids! I think that had a certain impact on my warm feelings towards these lovely old vehicles. I like the colours too…
