Joy Ride!


Oh I love Sweet Peas Garden Shop in Homewood. Just when I think there won't be anything new to shoot there, I pull up and there's this great old convertible in the front.  I got weak in the knees. How fun is that!

Very cool. I like when people make new and creative uses of things which would otherwise end up in the junk yard.

You all are the best. I"m so glad you had fun with this old car. KM, I've no idea what the make is. I"m clueless about cars......just loved the paint job!

Makes me remember the voice lead-in to the old Lone Ranger TV show: return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. Groovy, man.

MGB. Late 1960s

Had a 1964 one in red.

The perpetrator of this outrage should have their lungs torn out and be then made to eat them.

jb,
Darlin, this buggy has one foot in the landfill. The paint job is just a little lipstick holding it together. Don't worry... be happy! :)
