For Lilliputians/ Ruby Tuesday

A sign seen above a garage in a hamlet east of East Gwillimbury. I think the car is just big enough for Gulliver's Lilliputians. ;-) Zoom zoom!

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Adi said...

This is an excellent picture for today! I would have liked to have seen it. The front end looks like a Studebaker, probably from the 60's.

Adi: "Thank you for the compliment.
Happy Ruby Tuesday!"

Great Ruby Tuesday shot. I used to be fascinated with small-size vehicles when I was a kid. I know I would have loved this sign.

Cool red car shot! Excellent photo for RT:) Mine is posted HERE! Drop by if you get a chance;)

I wonder how much they are asking. Do you think it takes a lot of gas? Probably not too safe for carting kids to school, though I'm sure they would find it great fun.

That's beautiful sign up up there! Thanks for the visit!

see you there! said...

There is something about a red car. Be still my heart.

It looks like a mixture of a Henry J and a Pinto but probably not that extravagant. It certainly makes a nice post.

ALso, I don't know if you are interested or not or if you have ever seen a Pileated Woodpecker, but I posted one on My Birds Blog this morning. It is our largest woodpecker and this is the first one I have seen here in 46 years.

A kiddie ride car, with the front of an old Mercedes, the fins of a '59 Plymouth and two steering wheels (that remind me of my driving school days in 1971 in a Mustang with two steering wheels).

I think all little kids like to spin the steering wheels at the same time. What memories!

Pretty sweet and unique in that I see it has room for two drivers at the steering wheels!

Lilliputian back-seat drivers no less! How often have you ridden with someone and wanted to have that extra steering wheel on your side?

Mary said...

Cute! Wonder what the top speed is? And an extra steering wheel for "back seat drivers" when you don't have a back seat :-)

Tanya said...

Great photo choice!

Suddenly the song lil red corvette comes to mind. Though I know its not one, but cool shot.

Marilyn said...

I love that sign. I wish I'd made it. They did a good job of hanging it too.

I love old style signs. This one is truly a gem!

Cute little car! Super for Ruby Tuesday. I can just see all those little guys riding to town in this.
Have a great day.

This looks like a vintage childs car - I love it!
Looks really nice against the blue and white sky.
Great post!

Mary said...

Love it! So much nicer than the ubiquitous Mickey D's signs...

Shammickite said...

I can just imagine myself about 25 sizes smaller and zooming off into the sunset with that little gem!

Dianne said...

Kerri said...

What a fun car and great ruby shot :)

Gail's Man said...

Great little car for the kids to ride in. First time I've come across Ruby Tuesday. I do a similar thing on Tuesday. Only I put something blue on. Hence Bluesday Tuesday. Why not stop by and have a look.
