Cool Vintage Cars

Recommended Posts

One of the things I really enjoy about our small high desert town is that, probably because a reported 60% of the population is retired, quiet a few, mostly old boys, are into restoring and driving vintage cars, trucks, and, SUV's. As a result you never really know what your going to see parked downtown or in somebody's garage. Here are a few examples. I should start taking pictures of what I see on the streets as there are really quite a few wonderful old restorations. 

Just up the block from me

Nice looking cars keeper. My brother has been working on a 56 Nomad for the last year and a half. He bought the body and frame sight unseen (only internet photos) from a guy in Idaho.

 

He's not finished with it yet but he recently got to the point where he can start driving it. Here's the 1 pic I have of it.  Shown here towing that Kompac camper he also restored. (See link)

Here's another.

 

Because we now have Lisa's mom living with us we've been staying a Airbnb's. We've stay a few times at one up in SLO where the owner has restored a Hudson for drag racing. (Way cool) Here are some pics of it.

The two in the garage looks like a 55 to 57 chevy and 34 ford, and I love station wagons of all types and that nomad is ....... awesome!

There is also and older Chevy above the Ford on a lift. The whole set up is pretty neat. A number of guys in the neighborhood have garages with lifts to hold more cars.

I haven't ever seen one around where I live. I'll keep my eyes out for one.
