Old Ford

 1938 Ford

I wonder what the original owner of this old car would say if he saw it painted yellow.  I bet he'd be surprised that it's still on the road!

This car was at the Country Cruise-in I went to a couple of weeks ago.

The other side

As you can see, the car is in good shape all arond.

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Excellent! Yellow is such a happy color too :)

Impossible to miss. Looks so hot!

William Kendall said...

It is a great old classic but while yellow works in a flower it doesn't do so for a car.

see you there! said...

Great old car. You couldn't miss that yellow paint.

I doubt you could have found a yellow one back in the day. This one is gorgeous, though. My uncle had an old shell back in the woods. Too bad it wasn't revived before it rusted away. Thanks for linking up!

It certainly stands out in any parking lot!
My son had a bright yellow car, the car's name was "Mustard". His wife's car was red.... yes, she called it "Ketchup"!

my favorite of all the OLD cars is 36 through 38... love the look.. i like mine candy apple red or shiny black, but yellow is pretty to and i will take it in any color... except army green..

A bit too yellow me thinks.

I think it's terrific, but it would have been scandalous back in the day. I remember reading the Anne of Green Gables series (not that specific title), and everyone was appalled when they painted a house blue. Times and tastes change.

Love it! I think the color is fantastic. :)

Nice color! I think I told you my first car was a '37 Chevy. These were great old cars. Wish I had kept it!

Debbie said...

Blackberry Lane said...

My late dad would have loved this car!

Carver said...

Great shot of the old ford. I wonder what the owner would think of the color too. I think it's fun but I'm afraid if it was mine I'd go with basic black.

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i love the color. ( :

Randy said...

Great looking car.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

It is simply gorgeous!!!

Cranberry Morning said...

What a cool car! Not only would the owner be shocked at the color it's been painted, but also, most likely would be amazed at what cars cost these days.

Sally in WA said...

Yowzer! She's a real beauty now!

Felicia said...

marilyn said...

THIS is the kind of "rubbish" I really love. lol

kelley jensen said...

that is one spectacular car!

Kathy said...

He would probably be aghast! On the good side, however, it would be an easy car to spot in a big parking lot!

Pat Tillett said...

Really nice photos! This ford is beautiful and that is one big and shiny chrome grill.
