I've dreamt of tooling around in a fabulous, restored vintage car -- have you?
Actually, that dream came true on my wedding day, 35 years ago. My father surprised me, not with a typical limo, but with a beautiful red 1932 Rolls Royce, complete with radiator mascot, the Spirit of Ecstasy. It had been reconditioned and reupholstered lovingly by a friend of his from church. It was a gift from my Dad to me, saying that he loved me. It was beautiful.
The only problem was it had no air conditioning, and my wedding was on one of the hottest July days of the year. As my new husband and I rode to the Summit Arboretum for pictures, we were very, very hot. Strangely, we passed a jogger going uphill in full sun in late afternoon heat. Oh well!
These are the cars parked in the architect's office. I don't know the make of all of them, but ain't they lovely?
