Vintage Vehicles

ABC Wednesday

Here is the letter V which stands for Vintage Vehicles

Strictly the term 'Vintage' only applies to a Vehicle manufactured between the beginning of the
year 1919 and the end of 1930
 
I think some of these lovely machines are pre-vintage
but anybody creative can put together some wonderfully romantic stories
to go with them.


This is a pretty spiffy looking machine with a handsome chauffeur and a couple of pretty ladies to show off the brass horn and headlights, and the fancy wheels
 
 
Oh,look at the wonderful rumble seat and more spoked tires!
Are those side lanterns ?  Love the lines......
 
 
And here below is a Vintage Edwardian - an American car
and what I would call a 'touring' model
 
 
 
 
A couple of beautiful old-timers
 
 
 
and a gorgeous model for taking the family on a picnic.  I like the arrangement
for holding the roof down!!
 
This song was written in 1909 so I think the Oldsmobile hit the road
quite early in the last century,
but I'm sure you would like to sing along
 
Just follow the bouncing ball......

I'm a fan of vintage vehicles, love the story my grandfather used to tell of driving from Missouri to California in a town car with 5 kids. Whoa and no ipods.
