  4. Oh yeah! Mustangs and GTOs. Cops used to wait outside my high school parking lot to ticket their monthly allotments. :-)

  6. Classic cars are just so much fun- to ride and to photograph. Great capture, William.

  7. Wonderful vintage cars. Particularly love the style of the first car and the truck looks so cute in its shiny red suit.

  9. @Nancy: they were sparkling!

    @Caramella: thank you!

    @Orvokki: one of my cousins years ago restored one like that. I don't know if he still has it.

    @VP: the truck stood out to me too.

    @Whisk: that appears to be a common consensus!

    @Kate: yes we do!

    @Revrunner: I can imagine that.

  11. I love the GTO! Back in my early 20's, I had a Pontiac GTO convertible, baby blue. I loved that car.

  12. Near Minden we have the owners come at night and show them off at the icecream
    place Kawartha's .

    Did you ever go there William to the Kawartha's? In summer it is like a movie place. People line up and wait never to walk away.

    Your classics are beautiful!.

  13. More beautiful classics, I love these old cars.

  14. If I was mechanically inclined, I'd be tempted to restore an old classic. But...that's never going to happen, so it's nice to be able to see some done well!

  15. @Sharon: good memories to have!

    @Cheryl: that appears to be the consensus.

    @Carolann: at one point years ago I was in Minden when there were a number of classic cars out on display. That must have been it.

    @RedPat: that one's popular!

    @Tex: very much so!

    @Denise: a lot of people do!

    @Lowell: I'm definitely not mechanically inclined.

  18. Beautiful cars! I like the truck!

  19. Somebody lowered that pickup truck far too low.

  20. The Mustang's nice but I think I'd go with a more vintage model. And, of course, the truck is a no-brainer. Yes, please!

  21. We also attended a car show. It was an all British show in a neighboring town, Hudson, NH. I also took many photos of the classics like MGs, Jaguars, Austin Healey and will be posting photos in a future blog post.

  24. My 1st hubby drove sporty cars like these. Sadly, he chose drugs over me and sporty cars.
