1951 Dodge – Harbor Blue

with 2 comments

Bob Benzig was kind enough to send photos of his 1951 Dodge Meadowbrook.  Beautiful car.  The color is Harbor Blue, same as the 1948 Plymouth I posted last year.  Enjoy.

First Year for Mercury – 1939

leave a comment »

I took Sadie (our collie) out for a ride yesterday toting my camera bag along.  Drove through Eustis, FL on FL 19.  That particular stretch of road is still full of 1950s era signage, mostly motel and restaurants. We drove 5 or 6 mile north toward the fairgrounds then turned back.  FL19 (also known as Bay Ave) splits – two lanes of traffice going north separated by homes and businesses and two lanes going south.  On the southbound side is Ferran Park which is on the banks of Lake Eustis.  A group of classic cars enthusiasts were gathering for a weekly cruise-in and I got some nice shots of some truly great cars and trucks.  This 1939 Mercury Four Door was a beauty.  The owner was quick to tell me that this was the first year for the Mercury line of FOMOCO cars.  Hope you like them.

Its been almost a month since I’ve posted anything.  I think my creative bones have been exhausted.  I’ve barely taken any photos in the last month, I haven’t written anything (except political barbs back to people who send them to me), and I really haven’t cooked anything I’d consider worth sharing.

I’m looking forward to “The Royals” visit at Thanksgiving.  I’m really anxious for all political crap to be over!

I found some cool wheel photos to share.  Hope you like them
