Thursday Doors… doors with wheels

California is the perfect place to find beautiful old cars as there’s no salt on the roads in what passes for winter in most parts of the state. I’ve seen more than these three beauties in the few days we’ve been here but these are the only ones I was able to capture on camera. Which one would you like to own? Don’t worry about what appear to be low tires in the third photo. There’s a median there, cutting off the bottom of the tires in the photo.

As always, Thursday Doors is hosted by Dan at No Facilities. Besides being our host, he’s now published two books that are getting great reviews. You can check them out on his site, see the doors he’s featuring this week, and click on links to see doors all over the world just by going here. You’re also welcome to participate by sharing a door or two if you so desire.

    Three beauties, Janet, but I’ll slide into the Corvette if you don’t mind.

    Give me the old VW Bug please. Talk about nostalgic…

  6. I love those beetle cars, my son udes to call them frog cars 🙂 The red one is something that I would like to have:-) too

  7. I love the shade of green on the VW Bug, and that old Vet! Nice finds!! The Vet would be fun to have.

    Oh Janet, I like your doors with wheels. Some great classics 😀

    Hubby had a beetle when we first met. I had a red TR7 for a while. Now I need a car that’s easier to get in and out of!

    I love old cars. I learned to drive on the BW Beetle. That stick-shift was something I came to love. These younger generations can’t use a clutch or shift gears.

    • I remember lurching around an empty university parking lot as a friend taught me to drive his VW Beetle. Many, many years later I had to drive a friend’s car with stick back to her house and managed to make it without stalling out. I was quite pleased. 🙂

        Ha Ha Yes, I did some lurching learning to drive a stick shift. I actually got good in that beetle and drove my brother’s dump truck.

  11. Yet another creative take on unique doors! I really respect “car people” since that seems like an incredibly complex (and expensive) world I simply can’t break into.

    • They’re even more expensive right now, Hannah. Whether you need one or not depends on where you live and what you do. Our daughter in Philly doesn’t have a car and bikes everywhere. In Arizona, we need a car!

    My father had a VW Bug just like those. A tight fit for 3 kids, but it sure saved on gas. I like the green color of the first one. (K)

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