I'm in Love!

 There have been a few memorable times in my life when I was "dumbstruck" by beauty. The first time I can remember this happening to me was in 7th grade. One morning while we all stood for the pledge of allegiance (yep...we did stuff like that back then), I looked across the middle school area (it was the 70's and our school was built after one of the "educational buzz words" of the concept...basically a huge room with movable short walls on wheels so that you could have endless configurations...but I digress.) Any way, I looked across the 7th grade pod and THERE SHE WAS, the "new girl". The mix of fluorescent lighting and 70's interior design schemes gave her an almost angelic glow....I was truly struck speechless, and stumbled through the rest of my daily patriotic pledge to country and flag. Wow! She was gorgeous.
 Fast forward thirty plus a very similar experience. As I worked my way up and down the aisles of this year's Indy World of Wheels, I spotted her across the room. WOW! As I approached, I grew silent, until I was standing right beside her, jaw dropped, not even being able to put words together to describe the beauty before me....Not even wanting to blink, for the thought of missing out on a second of beholding this true piece of "eye candy"...:)

This 1934 Ford Woody was by far the coolest vehicle I saw at this year's World of Wheels. She is simply gorgeous!!!!!! hahahaha

So thank you, to the builder of this amazing beauty, and to the little dark-haired girl in 7th grade, (you know who you are) for giving me two of life's memorable moments. ;)

More from the World of Wheels

 I'm not a "huge" Ford fan, but I've always liked the looks of the first generation T-Birds....Here are some pictures of two excellent examples....always makes me think of Suzanne Sommers looking out the opera window in American Graffitti. hahaha

 Love the herringbone interior...but now that I've taken the picture, I can't remember the make or year of the car in this
Hey...what would a World of Wheels show in the great state of Indiana be without a tractor? lol
This one is a bit out of focus....but it a great example of why a buddy of mine said, "You need to put on some SPF 40 before you go over to the World of Wheels side." hahahaha

World of Wheels Post #4

 Like I said yesterday, it's always great to see old friends at area events....I never get tired of seeing the bikes that Lit'l Bill and Randy Blackledge turn out. These guys build some of the coolest non-motorized custom bikes that I've ever laid eyes on!

 All of the bikes in these pictures belong to Lit'l Bill and Randy.
 And speaking of amazing was great seeing The Kochs again. Their three sons have turned out some amazingly detailed choppers and engine blocks built entirely out of Knex toys!!!!!

Still lots more pictures in the days ahead from this year's World of Wheels.
