hints of springishness

For most people, flowers or birds hail the first hints of spring, but for me spring is not officially here til I see the shiny paint and polished chrome of an old car like this one:

I was out for a walk today, and I saw a great beauty roll on by me.
I don't know what it is about old cars that I love so much.

Is it their durability? the fact they aren't made of thin steel and plastic. old cars are much like old people lol they are tougher, more weather resistant.

Is it the painstaking amount of time their owners or refurbishers put into them? heck ya! I think seeing the workmanship and dedication they put into their art is beautiful!

Am I attracted to the dazzling colours and sheer shiny-ness? abso-fricken-lutely

IS there a point to this blog? nope

Happy Spring!
