Porsche 356 Roadster

Porsches over the years have managed to keep a certain style with their 356 and 911 models while still being able to update their cars to a more modern look.  A lot of it I think has to do with the headlights.  If you look closely along the lens you can see evidence of fowl play.

Metropolitan

This is a cool car that I have seen driving around town.  I finally caught it parked in a spot not too bad for a photo.

 

I like this one in both color and black and white.  If you’re interested, I think it’s a 1957 Nash Metropolitan.  I like the crop tight on this because it accentuates how crowded it must feel like to drive in one.

Mexican Beetle

It is hard to take a bad photo of an original Volkswagen Beetle.  They have at least as much character as any other car out there.  I am probably influenced because I grew up in the era of  Herbie the Love Bug.  In fact one of my childhood memories is of actually seeing a bug painted in Herbie colors on the way home from seeing “Herbie Rides Again” in the theater in about 1975.  Now I’m just babbling…

Rad

This is the front end of a 1936 (or so) Yellowstone White Model 706 tour bus that has been restored to tour people around the park.  The grill and bumper has a cartoon-like appearance and seems to be smiling (to me anyways).

Punch Bug Green (no return)

I have seen this Beetle around town a few times and have wanted to take a picture of it.  One day by the beach I got my chance and while I was taking my picture the owner came by with a big smile on his face obviously proud of his vehicle.


 

 

I must admit that I changed the color of the car slightly to a green that I like more.

1964 Shelby Cobra

I am not a really big car buff, but this one catches anyone’s eye.  I am not sure if this is a real one or one of the replicas that are available.   I am also not sure that it is a 1964 but I did some googling and I think I am right.  Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.   Regardless, this is a sweet ride.
