Tell me about your vehicle

If you and I met for the first time and I told you that I was blind from birth, how would you describe your favorite old car/truck in fifteen  (15 ) words or less. Remember I've been blind from birth.  I truly hope I don't offend anyone, I just would like to know how you feel about your garage baby. I will start. Me to you:  Driving it is like the sun shining on your face @ a constant 72 degrees.

Lets go for a ride with the top down. (feel, hear, smell would be the best way)

I've seen many Model A drivers on tours that I think were blind.  Was that you?

Becomes part of the machine

Ain't got no distractions
Can't hear no buzzers and bells
Don't see no lights a-flashin'
Plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay

Automobile with comfort

Really built with style

Specialist tradition

Mama let me feast my eyes

 

Edit- I guess I blew the blind from birth theme, but I would try to describe a comfy, stylish ride.

Rough riding, under powered. Smells of diesel fuel and canvas. No radio, heat, seat belts!

Paul Dobbin, not likely but I do get distracted quite a bit while driving.  60Flattop, love to play pinball, but, I'm no wizard.   Steve_Mack_CT, I love it, If I sat in that car, I would fully understand.   Dustycrusty, sounds like a beautiful ride.   JamesR, right up my ally, LOL !  Happy Fourth to all.  Don't ever forget why.

Had a great fourth today. I was able to drive both my '29 Model A and my '73 Corvette. Love them both equally but differently.

Puberty at about the time the white 1954 Cadillac convertible hit the showroom,

A cousin visiting during the late '40s, driving one a yellow Buick, but similar to the 1941 Cadillac convertible,

As a young child during WWII, seeing a politician in something comparable to the 1930 Packard Touring,

Seeing New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia with (then) General Dwight David Eisenhower in a Ticker Tape Parade,

and they were riding in this 1937 Buick Roadmaster Phaeton - LaGuardia's parade car,

 

We can define my years by the cars I love,

and no, the red Corvette convertible is NOT a mid-life crisis,

just an homage to my continued appreciation of style, speed, and AMERICAN SPIRIT !!!

My lincoln and my 1935 tent trailer. Smell like canvas and it all whines when you use it.

My neighbor said it best, “That car has more curves than my wife”.

At one time 3 guys in a one mile radius of me had an A and Corvette.  Seems like a popular combination.

We had a beautiful day in Rochester, MN today so, I decided to take my '83 Hurst/Olds out for a drive since I have not had it out much this summer.  On the way home, I stopped at a stop light and in the lane next to me, a guy in a van was looking at my car, not paying attention to where he was going and rear-ended the car in front of him.  I felt bad because the guy he hit had just given me a thumbs up at the previous stop light a block earlier. 

Just thankful that they were in the lane next to me and that it did not involve my car.
