Saturday I went to a Fall festival...
they were having a car show...
these photos are for old car lovers...
this post dedicated to my Dad....
Here goes...











when I was 16 I wanted a VW bug so bad....
instead I got a Maverick....
probably a better car for a 16 year old....




Mom these are for you....
we had a 65 Mustang....Red....
all I wanted was my Mom to drive a station wagon...
crazy huh....

Here's the Vet my Mom always wanted....
What was your first car?
What was your dream car?

I love the old cars...lots of memories associated with several that you showed. I briefly had a 64 1/2 Mustang, a very cool car,

I drove a powder blue bug with flowers painted on the side when I was about 18. It was my all time fav car.

My first car was a 51 Dodge. I always wanted one of those little sports cars...like a Sunbeam... About 3 years ago Hubby bought me a Miata...it was on his birthday...go figure that one out?!

That is so funny Deb!
My Mom drove nothing but a station wagon (with 8 kids...what else)
and I would have loved my Mom to have driven a red mustang!!!!
The grass is always greener!

I love all of the vehicles especially that red Vet. My first car was a Covair, remember those? I got my dream car in '72, it was a Firebird Formula 400. I'm lucky to have survived that car.

I did the same thing as you this weekend, I was at a car show on Saturday.

I had a Maverick as my first car, too. Handmedown from my sister. I thought it was dorky then -- I wish I still had it. :) Awesome photos, Deb.

Some real beauties here! My first car was a used Maverick! How incredible that two of your readers also had this same make as a first car!

The Maverick lasted until I got my (then) dream car: a Camaro Berlinetta!

My first car was an old Grand Prix I believe it was a '65 or 67. I love those old mustangs. My dream car is a 67 mustang convertible red with white interior. Those Camaro's are bad ass cars now.

Love these cars. My dad used to work on vintage Mustangs and I drove one of his "projects" when I was in high school, a '68 Mustang.

Love the VW bug and the 'stang with the stick shift! Boy, those muscle cars can run! Fun post, Deb.
