Garden Tuesday: Cars

 Who says cars don't belong on Garden Tuesday?  I think they qualify if they're parked on the lawn, acting as part of the landscape.

I found these cars on the lawn of our town hall when driving one of the boys to the dentist ahead of the antique show here recently.  It does make sense that they're part of an antique show, in addition to being part of the landscape, right?

First up, an old Rolls Royce.  Must be from the 1930s.

I have no idea what this one is, but it looks like the late 1940s to me.
 This one is a Packard from the 1950s; my dearly beloved recognized it.  (For the record, I thought it was an old Chevy.  Shows what I know.)
 And a 1930s Packard.  Just look at the suicide doors on that baby!
I'm glad the antique show organizers got people to bring their pampered antique cars for the rest of us to enjoy, and hope you've enjoyed this slightly off-beat Garden Tuesday!

I love it. I don't know much at all about cars, but the Knight does. That's his kind of landscaping!

Such beautiful old cars - I was brought up to love vintage cars, steam trains and traction engines!

When I was down in New York I saw the coolest antique car garnished with morning glory vines from top to bottom. I sure wish I would have had my camera with me. I'm liking that Rolls they always remind me of my Italian heritage, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

I enjoy seeing the old cars especially when in mint condition.

Every May there's a hotrod show here. The streets are filled with old cars and brightly painted cars and some really fun cars.
