Hal and Jane and their street rod




We met Hal and Jane and their street rod at an outdoor mall yesterday afternoon...they were on their way to a car show but kindly consented to having their picture taken with their pride and joy!

I suggested that this street rod looked like a lot of fun, and Jane grinned and said, "Oh, yes!"

And then they drove off as people everywhere stared in admiration!

Wow! Jacob. I hope you aren't writing off the messenger on Greensboro Daily Photo! We had no idea that taking a picture of a sign would cause so much controversy!!!! Please stop back by on another day-- even another Sunday! Maybe we'd better stick to skywatch, reflections, camera critters, ETC!!!

In the meantime, we continue to envy your laidback life in the Sunshine State! Right now we need to click on your statue-- queen of Peace Catholic Church photo and REFLECT!

This street rod does look like fun, until it rains.

tapirgal said...

And they didn't offer you a ride?

Ilse said...

Sure does look like fun!

Paula said...

Great photos of a great car and a nice couple and...what IS that hanging off the right side mirror? Nevermind, I don't want to know. :)

Leif Hagen said...

Not only is that a fun car, it seems to be well "air-conditioned" too! Do they always drive around topless?

I'm thinking, I need me a little pick-up like that. MB

Beautiful Shots Jacob !! I loved the vintage car especially !!

Bibi said...

I would definitely love one of these. I like the raccoon tail.

Olivier said...

magnifique cette vieille voiture, j'adore son design, cela fait un peu penser a un Jeep

brattcat said...

Like the machine, regret the tail.

Hilda said...

You know I'm not generally a car fan, but this one I can appreciate. It looks fantastic!

But is that a real tail I see hanging on the right side mirror??

VP said...

Not a great car fan either, but this is clearly something special.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It does look like fun when the weather is good. :)

B SQUARED said...

Is that a fox tail? Very cool!!!

Dianne said...

I also couldn't help but notice the store and think - shoes!!

Halcyon said...

Cool car!

Small City Scenes said...

Regarding your comment about the waterfalls. The biggest falls is Whatcom Falls and I hiked around the whole area and in the small river/creek area there were several small falls which probably are included in the mosaic. MB

This is a cool setup. Seems like an old model "T" tricked out with a Willy's Jeep flair. A very unique ride in todays day and age.

Jim Klenke said...

very cool

Saretta said...

All I can say is "poor raccoon"!

Jarart said...

Oh yes, fun is the word.

Steffe said...

That is a bit different.

Los Angeles Suburbia said...

What fantastic shots...of nostalgia and a classic.

Daryl said...

LOVE the coon tail

cieldequimper said...

After the waterfront in the Villages, now you've got me craving for a shopping mall American style ;-)even without such a fun vehicle to get around in!

Bergson said...

i want the same to buy my bread

Per Stromsjo said...

For our next snowstorm I might prefer a different vehicle. Then again, who knows - it might be up to the task. Did it hum nicely or was it a noisy encounter?

Cezar and Léia said...

I'm surprised and enchanted!
And your friends are really nice!

Trillian said...

It would be a little difficult to park here...but I agree with others: it's very cool!

Virginia said...

I want to meet Hal and Jane. They look like fun! Their car is great.

JM said...

How cool!

Wolynski said...

Great from the front, but looks like a lawnmower from the back - very cool, nonetheless.

Allison said...

OMG! I LOVE DSW Shoes! That is my absolute fav place to shoe shop! They have soooooooooooo many shoes! My favorite brand is "ME TOO." They are just the cutest shoes EVER! Every time I see a DSW, I just go crazy and shop, shop, shop! I even have a frequent shopper card there, if you can believe it! I think I might just call in sick tomo and go shoe shopping instead. You won't tell Leif, will you??

Cool car, by the way.

Kate said...

Glad you got their photo in that fantastic car!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - You need not worry, my dear. I tell Safe Leif only what he needs to know. Which isn't much! Well, actually, he needs to know a lot about a lot of things, but you know that I mean. I think.

Methinks also that you might have a DSW problem. Thus, it might behoove you to shop at DSW in Ocala...what happens in Ocala stays in Ocala!
