Happened to be in a spot this morning where I was able to look out over a sea of parked cars.  Hundreds of cars all sitting in neat lines in the morning sun.

The scene was dominated by cars painted in various shades of grey, black, silver, dark grey, dark silver and muted shades of red and blue.  Not a bright yellow car to be seen anywhere.  Is someone getting a deal on grey and black paint?

All the colors were dark, understated and frankly depressing. Not at all like the first and last new car owned by my parents.


That’s a 1955 Chevy Bel Air.

Those were the days my friend, we thought they’d never end.
