Vintage Red White & Blues

I'm far from alone in loving the look of old cars. And I love all those ads that use an old truck or auto grill to catch your eye for something else they're selling. I'd love to have my own '42 Chevy in oxidized green (or any other color) with its fat round fenders sitting in my driveway, or to tool around town. We're still in Blaine, Washington where this beautiful small bay side town is readying for a good old fashioned 4th of July celebration. Here are a few beauties in patriotic colors that we found parked around town.


Guess which one I liked the best! *smile*
Don't you love old fashioned celebrations?
Hope yours is fun!

    I bet you liked the white truck.
    The Honey and I like to go to the car show when it's in town.
    Love seeing them.
    the hydrant brought back a memory I have as a child, in 1976 ...the 200th anniversary of our Fair Country...our little town painted all the water hydrants up to look festive and patriotic. I remember the one on our road looking like like a dog with a fire helmet on! ...sweet memories, Pat

  16. My husband and I love old cars and trucks and that white one is wonderful

  17. Hi J,
    Well you are making Blaine look good, the Bedford Falls of the Northwest! I'll have to add it to my places I must trek to someday list!
    I see those old trucks for sale around here... and always like you, see it sitting in my the driveway :-) I'll flip you for the white one ;-)
    I heard Clint Estwood has the one from Bridges of Madison County and drives it around Carmel CA...
    not quite as old, but stylin'...

  18. Those cars and trucks are so great, Jacqueline! They remind me of the cars people drove when I was a small child. All that chrome and the white walls! I hope you had a terrific holiday there.
