#99: Dream a Little Dream

October 22, 2009

Well, they call New Mexico the Land of Enchantment for a reason.  Coming home to a heatless, hot waterless Brooklyn house after an entire Sunday spent waiting out plane delays and breathing recycled airport air was a bit of a shock to the system, but both me and the house have since recovered.  I’ve got a few more days ahead of pouring over several hundred photos before show and tell.

Meanwhile dream cars were abound on and off the road out West.  I was lucky enough to arrive in Las Vegas the day after the Barrett-Jackson car auction at Mandalay Bay, where Christmas came early for fortunate and well endowed car aficionados.  I had an opportunity to sneak into the hangar before every last one was carted away, but with Security breathing down my neck, I only snapped a pitiful handful of some dare-to-dream favorites.

I’m a Chevy gal when it comes to pick-ups but these late 40’s Fords were glorious.

1930’s Roadster

The black beauties.  My dream (American) car, the Corvette C1 made from ’53 to ’62.

A day later I got in the rented Mustang coupe and hit the road.

    I like your blog. And you’re a chick after my own heart, keep it up with the vintage, amaericana goodness! And more trucks, those are always good.
