Cars, cars, cars

A weekend "sell it yourself" car lot has opened in Prescott Valley. All you have to do is bring your car to the lot and either stay or leave a telephone number where you can be reached. I went to check it out and discovered some dandies, like this Mini Cooper.

There were some old-timers there, too, like this '61 Mercury Comet.

Even more ancient, this Oldsmobile, with wooden spokes on the wheels.

But the prize, in my eyes, wasn't parked yet but the owner told me it would be there next weekend. It was a completely restored 1936 Ford convertible.



  1. Take your check book when you go back.

  2. That Ford is priced at $25,000. Think I'd need AIG's check book!

  3. Oh boy! That's gonna be fun! Where abouts is it?

  4. Those new minis aren't like the old ones, mind. They're safe to drive for a start, and might even keep going when it rains...

    That red ford is quite delicious!

  5. I don't seem able to 'get' cars. However, I do admire the dedication & the wonderful restoration. Our son has a 1962 Pushbutton Automatic Valiant. It is the third one he has owned. We wasn't even born until 1968.

  6. OOoo, that Ford and the Merc are sweet! :)
