A love affair with cars?

What is this thing men have for cars especially old cars or flash cars, it’s like a love affair without the sex, they seem to be besotted by them. I’m bringing this up because my Mr T is a “petrol head” as he calls it, I call it lunacy, he has two Jaguars and a Bently, one he drives and the others he is doing up and are under wraps in a barn in Wales, it’s costing him a fortune because they’re old and getting the parts he needs for them is difficult, but will he stop “not on your nellie” they’re his pride and joy and a life’s work.

We went to a vintage car and transport thing the weekend before last at Woodside in Birkenhead and I enjoyed it for the nostalgia and atmosphere it was great, there were hundreds of people there, all in anorak’s (joke) but you know what I mean and when a say people I mean men, all clicking away with their fancy cameras, I think there were no more than half a dozen women there from what I saw. There were lots of stalls all full of Dinky Cars in boxes, now come on whats that about and the prices of them, well don’t get me started on that one!

Here are a few pictures I took on my crappy old “vintage” camara.

Did you see what I did there I put a gallery up, how good am I?

    I am not a car fanatic by any stretch of the imagination but there is something about old vehicles that pulls at the heart strings. Maybe reminicences of times gone by but whatever it is , I do like to see a well kept old car.Even more I would love to own one!

    forgot to add. so wrapped up in the thoughts of an old car… I loved the pictures and what a thrilling day you had even if you did not enjoy it as much as T

    Dont get me wrong I loved it a lot, the whole place was buzzin, but I thought “better things to spend money on” if that makes sense, my first car was an old battered Beetle that usually ran on thin air, but would start every single morning given a push and a hug and a promise of filling up in the near future and given the chance I would have her back without hesitation. I do love old cars.
