Fads Come and Go But Class Always Stays the Same

I always loved these cars. I agree with her.
Too bad the new cars are full of technology but have no class.

This lady is 101 years old and still changes the oil and spark plugs on her car.
Something to be said about being able to do this. Today the cars are so high tech, one needs a computer to figure them out. What happens if you break down in the middle of no where.
No way to get the thing running again.

She keeps her beauty very clean as can be seen by the towel she steps on to get inside.

In Tsawwassen on Sundays, some people bring their cars to the grocery store parking lot.
People have a chance to buy a car, RV, or boat from the owner, at a cheaper price.
Others bring in their classics to show off and for others to admire.
Sometimes even they are put up for sale.

The problem with old cars is the gas.
The engines use leaded gas.
I am not sure if unleaded works for them.

But nothing beats an old , well maintained car like this one, with white rimmed tires and chrome.
Now that's Class!!

These are are real classics -- both the car and the lady.

Today they are designing cars that speak to each other. One thing goes wrong and they all stop speaking to each other lol The same with parallel parking. They do it instead of people. Pretty soon man will become completely dependent on machines and will know nothing.

The title reminds me of a greeting card I once did.

"Fashions fade but true friends remain the same!"
