Days like today — with Pikes Peak in all its splendor — are an invitation to marvel.
Yesterday I sensed the dread of today’s date. I can’t help recalling the malevolent destruction, horror and loss connected with it in 2001. But, no matter how awful it was, the power of that darkness is not greater than the light.
The miracle of birth and the sustaining power of life still continue to propel millions of us forward toward hope and living. Rather than affirming the power of darkness today, I choose to affirm the power of light.
Apparently, these days bring May flowers as well as more vintage cars. As the days get warmer, people are bringing out their jewels. I am just tickled by this pristine vintage car — a 1950 Dodge Coronet — spotted in the grocery store parking lot.
Check out the beautiful tail lights and the trunk of the car.
I imagine this car has all kinds of stories to tell. It is truly from another era.
A glance inside reminds me of my grandfather’s car. I think the passenger armrest is plush fabric-covered. And the steering wheel is classic!
Looking at this picture, I wonder if the door is even locked?? It looks like a push-button mechanism.
The Coronet Gyro-Matic — quintessential 1950s era name!
The front grill — look at those headlamps and the narrow hood. Wow!
This car appears to have been owned by someone in the military. Again — there are stories connected with this vehicle.
Apparently low mileage. And it’s available for $10,500, or best offer.
Stunning, right down to the gleaming hubcaps.
I am in love. On the lookout for more!
