Old Cars

A few weeks ago on a very hot Sunday, my town was the host to an old car convention. Now, I might not strike you as the kind of girl that likes old cars, but let me tell you: I am. I dream of one day owning a Ford Mustang in baby blue with light brown seats, so when I spotted some Ford Mustangs and other pretty pretty cars right across from our door I ran upstairs to put on a pretty retro frock and demanded that my boyfriend would take me out TO SEE THE CARS
Luckily, he loves them too. Hope you enjoy!

I spotted this awesome little Beetle and I got to sit in it and shiz, the owner was so nice! Look at me muggin' all cheesy with my cat eye sunnies!

The streets would look SO much prettier with old cars everywhere!


Yep, those are my legs standing right next to a Ford Mustang. GEEKING OUT my legs are so lucky!

There was this huge picnic for owners and lovers of old cars going on on our town square, and there was this old icecream truck with those big golden toppers to keep the ice cream chilled like in the movies! And the ice cream scoopers wore boater hats and striped aprons! It was awesome!

  5. Old cars really are so much prettier, I wish they'd make ones that look old now but get awesome mileage/have hidden secret solar panels & don't use any fuels at all.... dream world. You look absolutely adorable & I love the picture of the cars with the brick street & old buildings, your town looks so sweet & retro as well.

  9. Love old cars! My boyfriend is currently doing up a 1964 Ford & I'm really looking forward to it being finished (even have a couple of outfits planned for when we go out in it for the first time).

  12. I'm so envious, I've been wanting to go to an antique car show for ages!! My dream car is a 1962 Ford Falcon or perhaps a 1960s Mercedes. :) Sadly vintage cars are not practical in Chicago due to our horrible weather and street parking, sigh.

    Of course I love this dress as I own it too! Do you get tons of compliments on it? Oddly enough it's one of my most complimented dresses and it isn't even vintage.

  21. Super foto's!
    Wij gingen ons trouwvervoer eerst in een blauwe ford mustang doen, maar helaas hebben we dat moeten wijzigen, nu ik deze foto's zie, vind ik het toch wel jammer... maar ja, nu is het te laat!

  22. niiiiice :) There's a fantastic car museum here in malaga, a HUUUUUGE one and you would love the mustangs they have there, and the cadillacs, amazing rides. very jealous to see that amazing ice cream van, looooooooove it. Thanks so much for the advice re the remote, you left on my site, much appreciated. On a side note, let me tell you that the brogues i bought are suuuuuper comfy. They are some sort of "soft" sole variety by Clarks, uber comfy, and I think I may wear them to destruction ;) They are not cheap, at €90 smackers, but i did have a gift voucher so it was easy for me, but they are some quality puppies xxxxx

  25. I love old cars too. My favourite is the 72 mustang... and I have a special place in my heart for Corvette Stingrays, such awesome cars. Looks like there were amazing old ones there though, oh my goodness, you don't see old jaguars cruising around much in these parts. You look lovely in that dress, I'm so happy you had a good time :)

  34. Those are gorgeous vintage cars! By the way, you look like Katy Perry! Your dress has a touch of classical drama.

  35. Those cars look RAD! The way the photos were taken might have helped, as the colors from all those cars seem to just stand out. They look great, and you look gorgeous. There's something quite exciting about the duo of classy cars and equally classy ladies.

  37. Nice. I wish I could have seen that classic car convention. Those vintage cars are superb. My husband and I are into good cars (old & new) and car shows. Our day will be great if we get to attend and witness an amazing car show. I’m going to show this to him. I’m sure he’ll be envious and impressed with your article.

  38. That’s an awesome old car convention. I love all those
    classic cars! I can imagine how excited you are to be in that event. You even
    put on your lovely dress for that. You look so beautiful in the first photo.
    I’d love to see you next time sitting in your dream Ford Mustang.
