August 26 Weekly Open Thread--Late Summer Delights
Welcome to the Car Lust Cruise-In, Barbecue, and General-Purpose Social Event. Grab a hot dog from the concessions truck, sit down here at the picnic table, and join the conversation.
We've had fine weather this August--mostly sunny, and comfortably warm, with few of those humid "dog days" we usually get this time of year. In other words, it's been perfect car show weather. I made my annual pilgrimage to the Studebaker-Packard meet in Tallmadge this past Saturday, and I'll be sharing my photos with you later in the week.
Here's one to give you a taste:
I've seen this particular Lark convertible before, but I hadn't gotten a really good picture of it. This time around, I got lucky and happened to be standing right there when the owner backed it in to one of the parking spaces. With that blouse and scarf, she looked like she'd driven here through a time portal from 1961.
