YOU WOULD NEVER UNDERSTAND IF YOU WERE NOT A CAR GUY (OR GIRL)

 Since we are not going to Hermann for the ShelbyFest, I thought posting these photos would give the readers who are car guys and gals something to look at and for those who could not care less (like QQ) about the Shelby or any muscle cars - well, this is what usually takes place when you are at a car show.  There are mostly men who would spent hours drooling over other men's cars.
I don't remember who told me that "A car is like a woman - she is beautiful and she usually belongs to someone else.  So look but don't touch!".  (Unless you want to get a bloody nose and killed if you let the blood dripped on the clean engine.)
I tagged along with Ralphie to a few car shows, especially to those classic vehicles.  There are many of them during the summer.  I built up a good knowledge and decided to surprise my husband while we were walking around the show, I casually pointed at one vehicle on display and said, "Wow, that is a 1958 Fairlane 500 Skyliner with the retractable hardtop".  I kept my "Poker face" only for a second then burst out laughing when I saw the beyond relief "Are you my wife?" surprising look on my husband's face - to this day we still laugh about this!
Can anyone tell me what these men are looking atThese are strangers who did not know each other but now they became best friends and could spend hours talking about "their" restoration project, whether to put in a 5.OL or 4.6L engine block, what kind of suspensions or paint work and let's not forget the wheel bolt pattern.

Yup, I don't get it. I just need the car to get me from point A to point B, ideally at point B there's a big corner parking space that I can park easily.

I love that story about showing off your knowledge ;) Sounds like something I'd do to my husband!

Just popping by to say hello and see what all you've been up to lately!
