Classic or New

Recently I went to the Annual Car Show at the National Guard Armory (in DC) and had a blast!  Gazing in awe at mint condition old automobiles from the 1930’s to 1970’s.  Cars, vans, trucks and bikes, all gorgeous!  Every car was spectacular!  Bold, beautiful colors, wild and crazy rims that were fabulous!  I saw cars that sparkle, so shiny they reminded me of new patent leather shoes. Cars with no scratches, dings, dents, dust or fingerprints. Wheels and chrome so shiny I could see myself and rim designs that made me say Wow over and over!

Last month I went to the car industry’s Annual Car Show  in DC. at the Convention Center,  Imagine a few football fields with all new cars parked and car dealers urging you to sit in them while they inquire about your preferences. The free program guide included an article on DC’s favorite vehicles (mine not included), green car technology and concept cars that were also on display. Wow!  I was impressed at all the safety features and infotainment systems that are available and standard in cars now. I was also amazed at some of the sticker prices(whew). The event could be a good cheap date (I’ll remember that next year).  Overall it was interesting and informative well worth a Sunday afternoon..

I was showing my friend the 200 photos I took at the two events and she asked “If you could have one of the cars, which one would it be”?  I answered her with pictures.  I couldn’t choose one, but these are my favorite two!  Classic & New!! 🙂

On another note- Driver Safety; Consumer Reports Annual Auto issue is on new stands now and here two links you may find interesting:
