Day 17

This car brought back some memories growing up. My dad was/is really into old cars! Let's just say, my driver's test when I was 16 was in a 1959 Chevy Impala Convertible. (And, let's also say, I nailed it with a 100%..which I did!) I used to hate having such old, huge, conspicuous cars. Now, I really appreciate them and my heart does a little happy dance when I see them. So when I drove past this car today, I had to stop.

My husband and son are into old cars too. Cars aren't easy to photograph, and I love what you did with this one. (I'm surprised it was out of the garage on a snowy day.)

I drive a bright magenta Jeep Wrangler- so I guess you can say I love "old, huge, conspicuous cars" as well. You did a wonderful job photographing this one!
