I saw this re-built and souped Ford beauty in a hardware store parking lot yesterday. It was so pretty, I took a few snaps of it. I had put my camera back in my vehicle and locked it up, then an old gent who looked about 75 years ambled up to the hot rod, and almost putting his face right on the glass,  peared into the driver's side window.

I thought to myself, he must be looking in there and  reliving his younger days, when this car was a lot newer. . I hoped while he was enjoying his nostalgia, whoever owned the car wouldn't mind him taking such a close look at it. Then the old guy unlocked the door, got in and drove away!  :)) :)) I had expected some 30 something guy to own it, boy was I wrong!!
CAMERA: Fuji S4800 unless stated otherwise
