(Day 43) From flora to 'flesh' ...

Muscle, that is, as in muscle car. We took a step back in time today to look at some great man-made machines. It was difficult to walk through the huge display of over 200 vintage muscle cars because it was difficult to focus with so much eye candy. So, before I sign off this blog for a couple of days before I get access to a computer again, I wanted to post a colourful photo of a couple of them.

And do you remember when cars had really cool hood ornaments ?

Very nice picture of the Belair hood ornament...what year was the car? You should've grabbed the ornament and ran!!

You're right about the Belair, and it was a '53 (I did have a fleeting thought about the hood ornament but I 'shot' it instead :)
