Oh Joy

joy rides... 4 Nov 2013


I have a serious obsession with vintage cars. My dream someday (after our kids have grown and I don't need to be practical about what I drive) is to own a vintage car from the 1940's to 1960's that's been kept in great working condition. Since it's one of those things I dream about often, I've been collecting images I find online—whether it be a real car or a toy one. It's pretty fun imagining owning one of these but for now I'll just dream about what I might find someday...

You can see a video about other things I love to collect here and follow more of my collections on Ebay right here.
