Part wagon, part future.


If you remember the wheels on this car, you've enjoyed a long life. I bet you have some real stories to tell.

Notice the wood spokes in the wheels. I guess I had seen that before but never paid much attention.

Things have come a long way, haven't they?

I guess the bullet hole decals are someone's idea of authenticity. I would have preferred a 1924 newspaper sitting on the running board or something. Maybe a gramophone in the back seat.

None the less, it is two works of art: the original machine and the hundreds of hours I am sure it took to restore it. The car was at the classic show at Crockett Street in Beaumont this weekend.
