Frozen in Time

During a WordPress walkabout today, I stumbled across several really interesting blog posts featuring photos of classic cars frozen in time.

The first post that captivated me was “Small Town Satisfaction,” shared by a blogger known as bluebrightly, on their blog “Wanderings and observations.” I especially enjoyed the photos in this post, sharing the classic beauty that lies in the small towns of the North Cascade Mountains.

In addition to “Small Town Satisfaction,” I also found two other contrasting posts which resonated quite well with the classic beauty of Lyman.

Wishing My Life Away shared a beautiful collection of vivid photos of classic cars, titled “Shiny Things.” I am amazed at how colorful and vibrant these photos are. The paint on each of these cars is half a century old, but still looks as fresh and pristine as the day it was sprayed onto the car.

In contrast to “Shiny Things,” I was also quite intrigued by “Poundshop film in black and white,” a collection of black and white analog photos of classic cars, shared with us by Imperfect Tense.

Each one of these collections brings us to a different place at a different moment frozen in time, through pictures of classic cars.

Show Season is Here

After a long cold winter, the warm weather has finally returned. Car enthusiasts are already flocking to the empty parking lots of America to exhibit their latest modifications.

Advertisements for local car shows are beginning to show up everywhere, and less formal car meets have been taking place on a nightly basis in preparation for show season.

The Checker project is at a stand-still while we wait for more parts, and I’ve really been wanting to go for a nice cruise that doesn’t involve going to work or school. Today I had the perfect opportunity to do exactly that.

I had liked this post on Instagram recently, and several of my friends from the local car community had seen my “like” and asked me if I wanted to cruise there with them.

I decided it was time to take a break from all my homework, and spend my day off from work doing something fun.

We all met up at the local car wash to detail the whips, and then cruised out to Ludlow for the weekly Starbucks meet.

Once the whole crew was together, we were cruising down the road in our convoy of Subaru Imprezas and Ford Focus hatchbacks.

There was a pretty good turn out at the meet. About 40-50 people showed up, and there were quite a few really unique cars, such as a track-ready Volkswagen pick-up truck and a lowered Toyota Soarer drift car.

Most of the cars at the meet were Volkswagens and Subarus, but the orange Dodge Dart sounded incredible, and the white Acura Integra was slammed and riding in style.

I managed to snap some footage of the meet, which I’ve compiled into this brief YouTube video.
