Brrrm Brrm or Zoom Zoom

We went to a car show on the weekend. It was the Mustang car club but there were other cars there too. We went because we were trying to find reflections for our camera club challenge. I enjoyed looking at the beautiful cars but I also liked people watching. You get some interesting characters at these shows.
The mustangs are all yawning 

There were rows and rows of pretty coloured, shiny cars. Many had signs saying, "Look with your eyes. Do not touch!"

There were classic old cars as well. I loved this one with the picnic rug and basket. 

I wasn't sure what to make of this.

 I used to have a car like that but I didn't ever dress like that.

 Older car enthusiasts seem to have a uniform of black shirts, hats and white hair and beards.

 One of the reflection shots that I got.
I don't know what this guy thought when I was taking a photo through his legs. He was the owner of the car chatting to a bystander. When he saw me he politely moved so I could see his car. Little did he know.

  1. The Morris Minor, Estate I think, is I think known as a woody. I remember Mustangs from the 60s and 70s and while extremely powerful, they were not very nice to drive.

  5. I remember the Morris Minor Estate wagon in Southern Rhodesia. I love the idea of a picnic hamper at the scene. I love the reflection photo. I wondered whose legs those were!

  9. We used to have a Morris Traveller exactly like the one in the third photo. It was so old that moss grew on the woodwork! Happy days.

  14. Car shows are always fun to see the cars wonderfully restores, but I agree that watching the car owners is just as much fun.
