EDIT: MAY 2, 2014 – HERE’S THE PHOTO CHALLENGE HOST BLOG! JENNIFER NICOLE WELLS
At my age, confusion reigns supreme. I cannot figure out who is conducting the “One Word Photo Challenge” series.
Oh, well. But it said to tag it “One Word Photo Challenge” so I did…
And here’s my turquoise photo; it’s of the Pontiac hood ornament on a turquoise car.
Who loves classic cars?!
Now what and where do I link this to? Old age sucks.

I absolutely adore old cars!!!! Here is my post on them: http://nowathome.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/classic-car-show/
Saw the cars! Gorgeous restores…
Wow, I DO remember this – but sorry can’t help you on where to send it. Love the old cars, they had more character – nowadays they each resemble the other. I like to watch the Mecum auctions on tv to recall what cars used to be.
LOL. Are we in the same (fading) memory club, gpcox? 😉 And again, I totally agree. Most cars in the mainstream look so much alike. They look like Toyotas, Nissans, even Bimmers. I guess that’s one reason why I like American. I feel that when GM and Ford introduced the Chevette/Nova and the Pinto respectively, that signaled the end of American dominance. Try going out to a car show instead of watching Mecum! LOL
Oh, here in Delray every Sunday is like a Mecum show. It’s almost traditional that anyone who owns an antique car has to go for a ride on Sundays, often on their way to a car show in W.Palm. I love it!
1951 or 1952 Pontiac…
Thank you, Pierre. It is a 1951 Pontiac Eight; it was at a every Saturday morning gathering of cars in Irvine, CA. It is called “Cars & Coffee”. I used to take my car, too.
I know it’s in French, but the story is interesting… and there are a lot of pictures to go along.
This post is the one before…
I was asking my readers to identify the 1958 Buick.
That’s okay, Koji. I get very confused on this photo challenge, too. But then I guess that only goes to confirm it must be old age.
I was getting ready to post my flowers photos for the flower challenge, but can’t seem to figure out how to access this hotel internet. Thank goodness for iPhones! 🙂
…but you’re younger than me, Jan! 🙂
Koji how did you find out about the “One Word Photo Challenge”?
And if I see an old car I have to look! They have so much more character and beauty to them.
I saw it on a blog but I couldn’t figure out who the “beginning” blogger was! See… Old age. Sometimes it just gets confusing for old farts like me. 🙂 And vintage or classic cars have their own beauty indeed. The design of the American classics just screamed America. 🙂
I love your turquoise photograph. The “face” looks like a piece of amber. Wonderfully composed. Beautiful! :))
Thank you, madlyinlovewithlife. Yes, it does look like amber! Maybe there’s a fossilized insect a bazillion years old trapped inside. LOL.
The hood ornament is “OEM” and came with the car off the assembly line. It’s a 1951 Pontiac Eight.
HL=huge like… 🙂
Just noticed this photo in your “related posts” and had to check it out again. It’s a brilliant shot, Koji!
