|My favorite car at the show, this beautiful '67 Guiletta Spider.|
|Of course, no show would be complete without your garden variety of Ferraris. There was a pretty nice collection there. Lots of eye candy. (Couldn't resist playing with this image a little.)|
|I knew that my old blogging buddy Susan Flett Swiderski (I Think Therefore I Yam) lived in the area and we arranged to meet. Here she is with her husband Mike. It was great to put a face with the blog and she and Mike turned out to be great people. We'll hook up again someday, I just know it.|
And then this past weekend it was down to south Florida to the Mirror Lake Classic in Lakeland to meet up with my buddy Punch for a show that's become an annual favorite. Classic cars around the beautiful downtown lake and the streets above filled with a bring-what-you-drive cruise-in.
|I believe I like the hot rods as much as the classics and I love to hear them fired-up. There's nothing quite like the rumble of a camed-out, big-block V8.|
And, like the week before, I knew that another blogger buddy lived in town and Susan gave me the contact information for us to hook up.
|Prowling amongst the vintage motorcycles is the Pixel Peeper (Thoughts from my corner of the Couch). Again, it was nice to put a face to someone you have corresponded with for so long. And again, Betina and her husband, Dave, turned out to be great people and I have a suspicion that somehow all of us, Susan, Mike, Betina, Dave, Punch and myself, will all end up at this show together next year. Why, it could become a veritable blogger nation gathering!|
