Antique Cars #30

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Today's images are a celebration of some old Ford...mostly this exceedingly well kept or restored Ford Woody...i believe 1950s vintage for the lead and versions....and then some very old Fords, back to the antique car museum. The Ford Woody was taken in Cape May NJ as we were getting ready to leave after a week at the shore following our traditional Saturday after house cleaning lunch at Louie's Pizza. (House rentals at Cape May run Saturday to Saturday). I do not know, but I presume that the woman in a number of the photos may be the owner of the Woody Wagon. And, unless I dig up some other car photos between now and then...this would be, for now, the end of this series of old cars....with grateful thanks to the wonderful response they have gotten. I was taken totally by surprise yesterday for the UAs from Dora (IamDora), Walt Knox, Richard (Estonian) and Lory (LoryC). A grateful thanks to all...they mean much to me.

We will give you a day or two to get you're feet back on the ground because there is a lot of hard graft ahead to get his mess sorted. But a breath of fresh air and a deep sigh from all of us.

A woody with a surfboard on top ....Brian Wilson and the rest of the beach boys band would approve. And speakin of good vibrations ....some good early ones coming from the new occupant in the oval office for sure ...
A briiliant end to this great series Peter thank you ...I learned lots about classic cars from it.
Best regards

Lovely set, Peter, and very similar to the one my uncle used to drive around in the North of Scotland as a chemist in the 1950s.

Splendid set Peter, lovely to see. I remember a doctor in the small English town I was born in had a sparkling 50s Ford v8 Pilot, but this is even bigger. Beautiful wood too. Great set and excellent write-up.

Before wood was confined to dashboards...

Beautiful: an era summed up, perhaps.

Hi Mike....compared to a lot of what has been coursing around EPZ the last two weeks (since 1-6-2021) and since the Inauguration, and even a Trump supporter's rant which is still on John Duder's page from two uploads ago, it was quite mild....mostly about my happy observations of the Inauguration...the strength of his speech, the singers, my surprise at JayLo singing This Land is Your Land, and how Amanda Gorman stole the show....and how he has made good moves at eh very start of his presidency, particularly with the pandemic and climate. I don't think I even talked about the person who just left office. I think perhaps I get scrutinized a little more acutely than others...
