Here in Branson we went to see Heather’s friend Raine who works at the Celebrity Car Museum. Raines is not only a car guy, he is quite an artist. He painted the Back to the Future themed mural above and almost all of the other art work in the museum. He is a busy man and generously took time to show us everything in the museum.
One of the special cars they have is a 1981 Delorean DMC-12, one of six used in the Back to the Future trilogy of films. As Raine put it, Heather is sitting where Michael J. Fox sat.
Personally, I think Heather looks better than Michael J. Fox ever did on his best day.
Of course, we had to try the time travel part of the car to see if it still worked.
So here is Logan present day. And then we dialed in four years ago, pushed the button and ….
Ooops, who shrunk the kid!!
Have you ever sat where Michael J. Fox sat?
Have you ever traveled through time? I want to hear about it.
How about a Hood Ornament for H this week. This one is from a Model A Ford from way back when.
I like cars in general, red cars in particular, this beauty is a Ford Model A Truck on display at the recent Tulsa Auto Show. I love the yellow wheels, the black fenders, and running board, and all the chrome from the bumper, radiator, and headlights, to the rear view mirror.
Konvertible??? No, this week letter is K which stands for Karmann Ghia by Volkswagen. I have to tell you that as a youngster during the 1970’s muscle car era I sure did not understand why anybody would want one of these. I guess now that I’m old and dumb instead of young and dumb I can appreciate the styling and lines but I still don’t get paying a premium for a 60 horsepower engine. I just love the baby blue color of this car, the bright chrome bumper and the little turn signals.
I spotted this beauty at the Tulsa Auto Show on Saturday. Isn’t it a beauty.
The emblem on the hood is spectacular.
Saturday son and I went to the Tulsa Boat Show at the County Fairgrounds. I’m not in the market for a boat, I just like checking them out. Plus generally they have lots of RV’s and trailers to check out.
This beautiful Camaro was on display. I love these cars. I’d never buy one though. Can you imagine the insurance. If you want to buy it for me though I’d spring for the insurance.
Speaking of cars, did you watch the Super Bowl? (Wow I’m a silver tongued devil. How is that for a smooth transition?) I loved the Dodge Ram Truck Commercial featuring the voice of Paul Harvey. I think it may be the best commercial that I have ever seen.
The text is as follows
I snapped this shot at the Tulsa International Airport while returning on my last trip.
I know that some of you are going to want to know what kind of car it is and the only that I can tell you is that it is an old red car because I forgot to note what the make and model is. There is a good chance that one of my really smart and knowledgeable readers will know and let the rest of know.
All I knew was that it is red, and I like red cars.
