See these beauties.
some of these a little closer. It is, indeed, possible to slice 'em so I don't like 'em. Whoops! I meant these, not those. Same difference, as my mother would say, but wrong for the context.
By the way, I got that picture here.
'20s cars are too utilitarian and '40s cars are too rounded for my taste. I like that long, sleek, sexy/curvy look they had in the '30s. They made a lot of good-lookin' cars in the mid-50s to late '60s too, and a few since, but my favorites are from the '30s.
I told you about the old antique car museum in Muskogee that my Dad took me to. I'm not sure I conveyed the depth of my mourning when my Mom took me to one of her antique booths a decade ago and it was in that building and the cars were all gone. I'd visited the place, I think, four times. I could have recited many of the plaques to you at one point. When I was in there with Mom, I walked around and looked at the place where the copper Rolls Royce had been and Hitler's Mercedes, and...I don't remember what all else, it's been too long, and I haven't spent that much of my time dwelling on it, really...
But the place was a touchstone to me. "Antique Car Museum" indeed! It was like a shrine to me! The only reason that made any sense as a name, was that the collection was so eclectic that only a broad term could cover them all. Unless you wanted to call it "Shrine to Automotive Artistry."
I always looked for the billboard for it and I always looked to make sure it was still open whenever we passed by. I did bring the wife and the boys there, back in the early '90s. I'm glad of that.
Anyway, when I was in there with Mom, some old geezer was sweeping the floor and complaining that there were no visitors. Mom commisserated with him a bit and he moved on. Then she told me that he was the owner, and he'd sold all the cars due to some legal difficulty... Dude, I really wanted to cry then.
