Last summer I posted my ideas of how to decorate with the oldies but goodies;
Hot Cars in the Summertime.
This summers post is all about the patina. How the weathered boys of summer really look. The ones that have been around the block a time or two.... and it shows.
I savor everything about old cars.....
the chrome details,
the colored leather seats,
the buttons on the radios.
I enjoy the way some of these vintage vehicles transport my mind to another time.
Like growing up in Southern California, which meant cruising Van Nuys Boulevard - the real-life American Graffiti.
And the patina.
No photo-chop-ing, no photo special effects.
No reason to digitally alter any of these beauties, it's the age, the raw natural wear and tear on them, that makes them appealing.
Tough old rusty guys
Patina that is classy and flawed
With worn areas that still shine.
Brawn has yet to put his woodworking skills to use on restoring a car.
But something tells me he'd like too.
The real bad boys of summer
The kind who put an antique trunk in the back of a Chevrolet pick up truck and throw down a few beers.... a few A&W Rootbeers. In a frosty mug of course.
My kind of boys, my very own bad boys of summer.
