Little Red Corvette

with one comment

This is a great looking 1956 Corvette – so clean. Reminiscent of the Route 66 television show of the 1950s.

1934 Cadillac LaSalle – Puttin on the Ritz

with one comment

This car was just a beauty. So elegant. When converted to black and white, it looks like this stunner put on a tuxedo and was ready to be “puttin on the Ritz”

1957 Dodge Custom Royal Convertible

with 15 comments

brad-and-elaine-hdr
Well – yesterday (3/21/09) we met Brad and Elaine from G-R-A-Y, Maine – I told them how much I like their Dodge – that I gots lots of “hits” from the internet – and some folks actually asked me if I they could buy the car!!

Well – I said I didn’t own the car but some nice folks from G-R-A-Y, Maine owned it, and they would have to talk to them.

Brad and Elaine were really a lovely couple – enjoying their retirement in The Villages, Florida and the warm weather seemed to agree with them.  I took this photo and promised that I would not miss-spell Gray, Maine again.

Cheers! Brad and Elaine – and congratulations on a truly beautiful restoration of your 1957 Dodge Custom Royal Convertible.  

 

I went back up to The Villages on Saturday to get some more photos of some of the classic cars that they have on display each month. I knew there were some that I wanted to go back and capture having seen them back in February.
This Dodge Custom Royal Convertible was a beautiful example of a big 1950s car out of Detroit. This car was carefully restored by a retired New England Bell employee from Grey, Maine.
