A Dream Car...

Do You Have A Dream Car?
Here's a photo of mine... (well almost.)


Pink Studebaker Pickup Truck...

Well, I know it sounds kind of funny, but I just LOVE old cars and trucks from the 50's, with all that chrome, shining and gleaming..., like big,happy grinning faces...  It think of cars and trucks from that era as being "happy cars." Designers back then just went to town on making cars with all kinds of fins, and grills and all kinds of extra chromie bits...  Cars were built for comfort, their shapes curvy and sensual.  So different from most modern designs. 

My  "Dream Car," would be a 1952 - 1956 Chevy or Studebaker pickup truck, all reconditioned, with a flat wooden bed for loading nifty things like... plants, and compost, great buy's from garage sales,,, you know... handy, functional but so 50's peachy keen!!!

The photo above was taken of an abandoned 1952 Studebaker pickup, out in the middle of the prairies of Eastern Oregon... driving down the dirt road, I made CG come to a screeching halt,,, I just had to get
out and take its photo,,, I love the character of these old trucks (I wonder if it could,  what stories it might tell?) 

And hey folks... guess what???  It just so happened... to be PINK!!!  Happy Pink Saturday everyone...

I still regret selling my very first car...a '73 red VW Bug. I put a lot of miles on that little car.

Thanks for stopping by my PS post, Neinah. I don't have an Esty shop - one day I'll do that. In the meantime you can see what dolls are available on my website www.patkumicich.com - If you're interested in anything in particular, I think I could send you a Paypal invoice or I take checks.
