Sunday Stills: Muscle Cars

Dad's V8-019

This week Ed from Sunday Stills has asked us for photos of muscle cars.  I have just spent some time going through my archives and was surprised that I didn’t have many photos of muscle cars. This photo was my ex-hubby’s 1972 Pontiac Firebird.  Considering that we went to a lot of car shows over the 8 years we were married I don’t have that many photos from them.  I did have some from last year but they are on my Time Capsule, which I can’t access at the moment.  So sorry ex-hubby, your car is now on display here.  (It is part of our divorce proceedings and he has been trying to say that the car is his and that I never drove it – I did weddings with him, driving this car, while he drove our 1969 Cadillac de Ville)

1969 Caddy-0713

He sold this a couple of years ago.

Sundays Stills Challenge: Things we take for granted,

DSCF0483

Good evening from Hastings.

This is quite a thoughtful challenge by Ed at  Sunday Stills .  I asked my husband about what he takes for granted.  Well the list was long.  In the end I settled for petrol.  We take it for granted that it will always be around for us.  But for our great grandchildren or even earlier if we are not careful it could be in short supply.

I chose this as my husband has a gas guzzler –

This 2972 Pontiac Firebird. His pride and joy.  But boy it is thirsty.  Not to mention hard on batteries as well with it’s V8 engine.

Even these cars were thirsty.

Even coal is getting to be somewhat limited as many coal mines have closed down.  That means that even steam engines would have a hard time in the future.

This steam engine was used to clear rubble after the 1931 earthquake which I had posted today.

If we are not careful we will end up using this form of transport again.
