  1. Gorrrrrrrrrrrrrgeous old cars!!!!!!! My husband would "drool"!!!! ,-)

    The immaculate Chevrolet Corvette, looks the most "drool-worthy" to me.

    One of our sons, has an old Mustang red convertible. :-))))

    And my husband has a 1930 Chevrolet Coupe with a rumble seat. The same model, as my mother had, when I was growing up, "Back at the beginning of time."

    Plus his 1950 5 window Chevy Truck.

    Yes, this is an old car loving family.

    1. We also love old cars and in South Africa we had several from time to time. We lived in the perfect climate there with no rust and the cars lasted for ever. We have no old ones now as they need a better climate than we have here, or at least somewhere where they can be garaged in a good environment. We just enjoy now joining friends who have old cars instead. Glad you enjoyed this post. Keep well Diane

  2. I love these old cars. They are gorgeous treasures. Love the stargazer lilies, so beautiful!

    1. Nancy the Stargazers are amazing, it is a pity they only flower for such a short time. Have a good day Diane

  3. I absolutely love the old cars, Diane, and your nature photos are always gorgeous, fascinating and amazing! Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Linda I agree the old cars are very special. Hope that all is well and that you are having a good week. Diane

  4. Hallo! Thanks for you comment, now I am here. I love the amazing flower and the insects. But Ralph love the cars :-)

    1. Thanks Aritha, our garden always seems to have surplus insects :-) Ha Ralph, cars of course, boys will be boys :-) Have a good weekend Diane

  5. Outstanding photos Diane and how I love those old cars. I was looking forward to these. As long as they run I would love an old car, the older the better. There are some real beauties here.

    1. Glad you enjoyed this post Denise. We had a number of old cars while in South Africa, we love them, but they are not cheap to keep well renovated!! Hope you have a good weekend Diane

  6. Your photos are excellent, Diane. That little striped (bug), I've never seen on here! :)

    Love old cars too; there are some beauties you've captured!


    1. I am amazed how many people actually love old cars, thought we were low in numbers :-)) We have a number of those striped bugs around this year, they must be breeding well!! Hope you feel 100% better very soon Diane

  7. I like the really old race car. Sure are a lot of these beauties around.
