What a great find Patti, love the composition, colors and textures. I know a few people that would love to restore those old pedal cars and they would pay a nice price for them. #9689243

David M. Montero September 25, 2011

This is where your car ends up after it's been stolen and gone through the chop shop. The white car on the right used to be my Lexus. This is a great shot Patricia! #9690198

Patti Coblentz September 25, 2011

Thank you Patrick, Mitch, and Dave!
LOL, Dave :)) #9690210

Laura E. Swan level-classic September 27, 2011

Yah, Baby! Okay. I get the Brown one (the rusty little one?) to our left. It looks more streamline and ready to race! Lol... :D

I lobve it, Patti. Oh, how I have missed being a regular on BP.

This is so fun! I hope you had a great trip. :))))

I have been invited to go out to play pool tonight. Humm...I think I could be a better car racer than pool player this evening, but hey! Gotta take chances in life, right???

Hugs to you dear one!

Patti Coblentz September 27, 2011

Hugs back to you :) Thanks, Laura!
Nobody even noticed the little tin man in the middle car. I'll take the white car on the right...Dave Montera's! #9701463

Wm Nosal September 28, 2011

Steve M. Harrington September 28, 2011

Now this looks like a really cool museum! Not too tidy either...the perfect amount of grunge! :)

Patti Coblentz September 28, 2011

Thank you, was a fantastic place out in the middle of nowhere along a lone highway. It was actually closed (a simple rope across the entry), but I was told that the man that owned was quirky and loved photographers, so I climbed over the rope and went at it :) #9704227

Laura E. Swan level-classic September 28, 2011

Well of COURSE I noticed Wm there in the middle with the MAG WHEELS.

Did you also notice that the two of you are still getting gassed up? Mine is already "ready to roll"...

BUT I PROMISE NOT TO JUMP THE GUN. I don't care WHERE we go so long as none of us pull a Thelma and Louise! HeeHee

Craig W. Myers level-addict October 03, 2011

A really fun shot. The guy in the blue car reminds me of how I feel driving during a Seattle rush hour. #9713751

Thanks, Craig!
I can certainly empathize :) #9713809
