The Treasure Valley Model A Club held a meeting today.
We were driving by and just had to stop and take a look. It's Father's
Day weekend and yesterday I showed you pillows, but today it's antique cars
because cars are a guy thing.
I wish my Daddy was still here. He would have enjoyed this collection of
This one would have been just his style. My Daddy was a tuxedo wearing,
martini drinking, golfing kind of guy.
Yes ~ this would have delighted him. So elegant and stylish.
While I love the elegant and stylish too ~ I am also drawn to pick up trucks.
Maybe it has something to do with being married to a red blooded Texan!
This one is beautifully restored. I could just imagine driving around and loading
up the bed with vintage furniture and more.
But then again, I loved this one too. A funky junk kind of pickup.
Here's another restored beauty.
But take a look at this one ...
It's from the Boise-Payette Lumber Company. The phone
number only had three digits. Idaho is a pretty wild place, even today.
Can't imagine what it must have been like driving mountain roads
in this old truck.
Look at that rusty old saw on the back. Love it!!
Must have been a bumpy ride up and down those mountains hauling lumber
back to build houses. I wonder if the lumber for my house was hauled
down by a truck like this. Actually, it may have been hauled down by mule!
I am missing you Daddy! Wish you could have come to the car show
To all the Dads out there ~
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
For those of you who still have a Daddy ~ give him lots of
hugs and kisses.
Now Bentley ~ promise me that you will let your Daddy sleep in
