However, this post is far from one gushing about white sandy beaches – it is about fast and beautiful cars, let me explain. I went to Sunday mass with my parents but I was extremely distracted in the service as the windows behind the priest gave an hour-long preview to the vintage and very expensive car show in the drive of the country club. I am in no way a car aficionado but I do appreciate pretty things and these cars make the Burberry coats from last week and dream Louboutins look like pauper’s possessions compared to these six figure cars. Some of the gentleman who brought automobiles drove their sole prize position to the show while others came with a plethora of cars, many of which in collections that books have been written about. I never thought I would do a post solely devoted to automobiles but, as I have learned with this blog, never say never! Take a look at these beauties from Sunday afternoon and tell me if you disagree, they were worth their own post:

Ah, these cars are so cool. Especially the Buick Roadmaster Convertible. They are so much prettier than the cars nowadays, like Lamborghinis. They look just too pompous. 😉

I love those cars and I’m pretty sure that Corvette was made in my hometown! 🙂 (Yes I like telling people that my hometown is where Corvette’s are made…I think it’s cool even though some people may not…lol)
wow really cool, I love vintage cars they look so chic;)

haha first, distracted in church is my middle name. Second, although I’m not necessarily a “car person” these are certainly beautiful. I have been to a car show before and it is definitely a lot of fun to look at them even if it isn’t “your thing.” Looks like Florida was great!! xx

Hahaha unfortunately I don’t have a thing for cars, but I suppose in person it would be a different story. I mean they’ve stood the test of modern times and all so that in itself is impressive.
FYI yes I too love it when people read what I wrote! I always do! It’s nice to get a comment every now and then that reflects what you wrote above and not from the accompanying images. Maybe I should have added that as a pet peeve! ;o)

I find vintage cars SO cool–although, I’d never trust myself to actually drive run around. I’d be so worried about crashing it!
Bex Doctor says
I am not into cars either Kelly but this is a great post! I love vintage cars, I don’t collect them (I wish) but looking at them sure makes me happy. Thanks for sharing.

I have been to a car show, we live close enough to Detroit that when it’s in town we go once in awhile. There’s some really beauties in this group you’ve got here.

I’m not a fan of cars shows but I really enjoy your pics!!!
I love going to car shows with my hubby! He surprised me with a 1963 Bentley for our wedding instead of the regular limo we were supposed to take. 🙂

I am not a huge car person either but I love seeing the classics. I have been to a couple car shows and I have grown to appreciate the work that goes into making these so beautiful!!
Always Maylee says
My husband LOVES classic cars, he would have really loved this!
Courtney B says
Ooooh my hubs would be in HEAVEN at this car show! So fun!
We actually go to the biggest car auction/show ever. (I made that up, I don’t know if it’s “the biggest” but it seems like it to me!) Have you heard of Barret-Jackson? We’ve gone a couple times in Vegas but it’s my husband’s goal to go to the other 3 locations as well.
I’ve only been to one car show in my life, but I loved looking at all the restored cars!

I happen to love cars and I go to car shows throughout the summer. The new Lambos are absolutely gorgeous and the Ford GT is practically rare. They’re not rare per say, but you almost never see them. Great pictures.
Wow these cars are so vintage and posh at the same time! They definitely deserve a post for them. Thanks for sharing! These are beautiful 🙂
