It's hot today, hotter than hot...mid nineties...whaddya gonna do on such a hot day!?  Stay inside till late in the day, and then venture out to find some HOT bodies...CAR bodies, that is...Sorry to disappoint you if you were looking for hot women...heh, heh, heh. Eldy is conspicuously silent tonight because he's watching the Indy 500 first and now the Coca Cola 600 Nascar Race.

But if you are into muscle cars, reproduction cars, and elegant cars from the thirties, forties, fifties, sixties and seventies, then this will probably almost be as good a visual treat. Come to Spring, TX, any Saturday night in the spring thru summer months and they are at the Kroger Signature shopping center on Spring Cypress Drive. Over 200 vintage cars usually, they said! Row after row after row in the big parking lot. They start lining up in late afternoon, and then into the evening, the parade into the parking lot continues.

Sparky doesn't know cars other than what cars she used to ride in in the fifties and sixties with friends, so you'll just have to look at all the photos today and do your own reminiscing! How about this beautiful blue mustang? I'm gonna guess it's a '65?

And she CERTAINLY doesn't know engines, but they sure looked purty under the hoods!

Sparky loves the grills...They are so elegant and classic. They kinda look like faces with character...

After looking at all the cars, she talked Eldy into visiting the local Tutti Fruitti nearby for some great frozen yogurt...yum!

And that was our day today...a visit to the car show late in the day and some frozen yogurt to try and cool down from the heat in Spring, TX....See you tomorrow.....


  1. That mustang looks like it could have been mine:( I want it back:)

  2. Love the hot weather and old cars, reminds me of summers way back when.

  3. The grilles do look like faces of different characters! Oh you said faces with character. Well either way, I'll never look at the front end of a car the same way again. I prefer restored classics to souped up classics myself. I think the old cars were great just the way they were and don't need any jazzing up. But obviously that's just me.

  4. Great looking old cars with nice colors too. I wonder if today's cars will be collector items in 2062? If so, maybe I should keep our Honda Civic!
