We got to spend a day in Tacoma with Jay and Amy! It was so fun having dinner, visiting, perusing an old book store… Just what we needed! Already thinking about our next trip to Portland. :) We also went to the car museum next to our hotel…
After touring the LeMay America's Car Museum yesterday, I realize that my children missed the golden age of cars. Cars used to have class and style. They were each a unique work of art. Even the windows and hood ornaments were amazing! It was all about the details. Now is the age of the clone... When you are in a parking lot, nearly every car looks the same. Nothing stands out.
I am so thankful my dad had fun cars for me to ride in and drive growing up. I don’t think I always appreciated it then, but I certainly do now! Well, I did appreciate having guys rap on my window at a stop light or gas station and slip me their phone number in case we were ever interested in selling (after I got over being scared that something was wrong or that they were going to murder me). I still drive with two feet because I never got out of the habit of driving with my foot always on the gas so that the car wouldn’t die when stopped at a light. ;)
I took these pictures because of my dad…
this is the same color scheme of one of my dad’s cars
my dad has an amazing gas station in his back yard!
station wagons always remind me of growing up
this truck reminded me of the one we drove to Uncle Kenny and Aunt Ruth when I was a little girl
I remember that my dad has always like Metropolitans
There were so many awesome cars there! And so many of them had great stories, too…
And some I simply just loved!
I dream of someday taking our cross-country bike trip in this…
so many cute scooters!
Chris and I would look great in this one touring around Europe!
So many brilliant cars, so little money… LOL
