A few years ago I attended a parade in Naperville. There were some good doors on display and what went with them wasn’t bad either. Which is your favorite?

    I can’t pick a favorite. I love them all.

  2. Kate Lester says:

    They are all impressive. I hate to admit this, but I remember when those Chevy fins debuted.

  3. Ally Bean says:

    Classic cars are fun to see on the road. I don’t understand the wood doors on the first one, but they are eye-catching.

  4. What a whimsically unexpected twist to the theme! This is simply delightful. How I pine for these carefree days with crowds and festivities…

  5. Cool parade. The woody would be the one to have, but gotta love those fins – back when cars had that outer space Jetson’s Hollywood look.

    • These days you might have to have a garage specially built for some of the longer cars, although there are certainly pickup trucks these days that need longer garages as well.

    Love these antigue car shows! When our son was young we went as often with him as we could, to places like these:)

    • There were some antique car shows in the area, but these were taking part in the parade, which was fun, too. I have a feeling some antique cars are most fun to drive when the weather’s not too hot or cold. πŸ™‚ But they are fun to see.

  7. They’re all really neat cars, but the middle and last one are my favorites.

    The black convertible! It reminds me of the Model T my grandfather said he drove when he was a boy. He rode in a restored one in our little town’s 4th of July parade, since that was his birthday.

  9. Su Leslie says:

    Niiice! My favourite car door is on the BMW? Messerschmitt? bubble car which is apparently not a door but a hinged canopy. My much-loved great uncle had one when I was a kid and riding with him was a huge treat.

  10. Teresa says:

    Love vintage cars!

  11. JT Twissel says:

    The woody of course!

  12. de Wets Wild says:

    It is impossible to choose a favourite, Janet!

  13. I don’t want to own one or provide the funds to support one, but I always enjoy seeing these jewels still running. I have to say I love the wooden doors.

  14. slfinnell says:

    I’d definitely drive that Bel Air!

  15. Norm 2.0 says:

    Some real old beauties in this batch. Not a big fan of the huge pointy tail fins but I love the soft curves in the first one. Good post πŸ™‚

  16. jazzytower says:

    Ha, Ha! Vintage doors, 😊. Cool take! I love vintage cars.

    Ooo la la! Fabulous!

  18. I once had a Belaire like that final shot, only not so lovely a blue. I drove it from Kansas to Texas, from Texas to California, back to Texas, to New Orleans to New York when it was finally impounded. By that time, I tied the trunk shut with a rope. It sort of had a Texas drug runner look to it, I expect. But I mourned its passing.

    • I was more into the small cars. A ’75 VW Super Beetle was my carriage of choice and could go any and everywhere. I always figured if it got stuck somewhere, I’d just ask four or five strong men to lift it out and get me back on the road. I know they could, as friends moved it one night when I was in college, thankfully not onto someone’s porch or some other awkward place.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
