From the absurd....
....a 1930's vintage Packard (American)....
....and the always stately Rolls Royce (Great Britain)....
....to the ridiculous....
....a tiny post-WWII Gogomobile (Germany)....
....that pretty much summed up the most recent Dallas Cars and Coffee show.
While I must say I'll never tire of seeing cool cars of every description, I'm becoming less enamored with the usual stuff, regardless of its Bling.
Well, OK, maybe just a bit of Bling for old times sake.
Classics like this MGA are what grab my attention these days. (And Big Joe's, too!) But wait....IS this an MGA?
The boot lid says it's an MG 1600. *must Google*
As those who know old time off-roaders will attest, a Land Rover Defender wasn't necessarily the best, but dang, did it look cool! Still does.
This nicely turned out BMW Z4 was of interest....
....even if the owner, who left his cap on the dash, thinks it's a Jaguar. DOH!
Speaking of BMW's, I LOVE this Z8! (The prototype "little blue pill"?)
And to us old geezers, this '54 (?) 'Cheeevy' was pretty slick, too.
Talk about secure in your manhood!.....or maybe it was just a lost bet payoff. Yeah, let's go with that. :)
If I sent K to the paint/body shop on "certain days of the month" *ahem* this is probably what she would come back with. Yes, she's often "decisiveness challenged".
My friend Neil even brought his classic '90's Subaru SVT, although he was too chicken to bring it into the arena. *Come on Neil, share your toy with us peasants next time* ;)
But my favorite of the day was....
....this pristine Jaguar E-Type.
And that was my Cars and Coffee, June, 2015.
