For the Love of Cars!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 8, 2016, 6:58 PM


So, it seemed fitting with Hot August Night's 2016 wrapped up and put to bed, to do a feature on cars. It is after all, the car shows 30th anniversary!

The love of the automobile is nothing new to Americans or anyone, anywhere.  Cars give us freedom, cruising down the highways with the wind in our hair...it is not about the destination, it is all about the ride!  

Those of us that call ourselves car buff's, we love the sound of a 8 cylinder roaring engine backed up with looks that could cause an accident.  I was born into a car family and learned at an early age to appreciate the beauty of a restored classic.  So, with that said, here is to the automobile in all her glory.  Whether she has a carburetor, fuel injected, modified or traditional classic, the love of the automobile transcends generations.

Enjoy!

I remember some of those cars. They look sleek but drove like tanks. They were heavy, gas-guzzling behemoths without power steering or brakes. I do like old cars, I really do, but I shiver when I think about driving one "back in the day" :shivering: v2

I assure you that these updated cars for the most part, are nothing like their former selves, with updates in their suspensions and steering.

My pleasure, Rocky!  I am glad you like it!  Hey, take a look at a green ford with a canned ham for me, I have no idea what year it is.

Such fun! That Corvette is my favorite too. We all wanted one of those when we were teenagers.

Yep, we had a few of them growing up...they were fun and trouble with a capital "T".  But, if truth were to be told, all the muscle cars that were restored while I was growing were trouble.

I couldn't have put it any better, especially being raised here in Reno, with this event ever year. It gives anyone with even the slightest car interest a focus addiction to classic cars.. Ty for a great blog <(-_-)>

Oh like I could leave you out of it, Gino! The biggest problem I faced was choosing which ones to put in it!  It was my pleasure Gino.
