Pastel Vintage Cars

Event: Vintage Car Show

Location: Wilmington, DE

History: Usually I’m too busy leaning in to take a picture of the pretty knobs and controls on a vintage car but this year I noticed a lot of the air conditioning evolution process on display. Like the teeny fans that clipped on near the steering wheel or that behemoth Kool-Air metal tank that strapped on to the side of the window!

Notes: Why did we ever get rid of those pretty pastel colored cars? I want those back! The trippy reunion party bus for the Class of ’51 caught my eye and I think everyone else’s (…she wore blue velvet…) and so did the Ford Ranchero with the surfboards strapped to the back. Besides wishing that my car was coral or powdery blue, the surfboards were definitely my favorite.
