Stuff of Dreams, Just Down the Road

On the road to buy groceries, I always get to pass by this car lot with some of most beautiful, curvaceous pieces of machinery ever to come out of America's yesterdays. I stopped by to talk to the owner a few days ago to ask my WWWH's (Why? Where? Who? How?) for a story in the Woodstock Community Guide.  He told me that when he was a younger man, he used to go there, then a gas station, for his RC Cola's and moonpies. When he saw it for lease, he knew what he had to do.

4 Things not left unsaid:

The thing is, they are such living characters, these Cars From Then. Now they seem as alien and gorgeous as a spaceship.
Thanks so much for sharing this magic.

Tell him his favorite is also my favorite. I've always wanted a Shelby Mustang, and now that my last name IS Shelby, I want it even more. I earn for it. Too bad Stephen's family is of no relation. I should just knock on Carroll Shelby's door and ask him :)

Candace, Gretchen, and JarieLyn,

Thank you for commenting! Gretchen, I told him what you said about the Shelby. :) That blue Plymouth is my favorite!
