Most people who own a vintage automobile will have a tale to tell when people ask about how they came by them. They found it in a barn somewhere or travelled across country to get it. No matter what the saga, one thing is evident — these folks are so proud of their babies.
Last summer, while attending a classic car show, a friend of mine who'd never been to one (odd) was impressed by the atmosphere. This, she said, is a brotherhood. "They love these cars. Not just theirs. They respect what others have done to their vehicles and enjoy their stories. It's quite a neat thing, really."
Couldn't agree more. One of the highlights of my summer is taking our nice 'new' shiny red 'Artie' to hang out with its peers. Nostalgia plays a big part of it; I came of age during the era of muscle cars and great music, so walking around these shows under a blazing sun, listening to good tunes and checking out these well-aged beauties is a walk back in time to my classic days.
But I also just love the look of these special rides. If you agree, enjoy checking out some classics in these clipart and photo collections:
