Outdoor Wednesday – Good Guys Car Show

Outdoor Wednesday logo 

This is my first Outdoor Wednesday..Your Hostess  Susan at  http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ is kind enough the have this event….hopefully my sillys won’t ban me from her site…do visit !

Are any of you ladies married to a car buff ? Well, I am so it that time of the year to hit the car shows ! My husband has 4 project cars at the moment he is building…we have a six car garage – yep just about the size of our Small Home in the Country ~ go figure !

I always take pictures of the beautiful cars….

I love taking pictures like this – My hubby HATES it….He thinks the angles ruin the picture….6-6-09 good guys 042

6-6-09 good guys 021

6-6-09 good guys 028

O.K. Here I am . I look at this picture and think…..I need a tan, a new Victoria Secret bra – to give me a lift….LOL and a good workout – my arms are so out of shape ! My 18 year old daughter took the picture – so please forgive all that shading..

6-6-09 good guys 020

You know, it is hard to take pictures at a car show cuz peoples butts are always getting in the way, (snicker , snicker !)

6-6-09 good guys 033

This is my baby boy – all 6 feet of him ! He will be 21 in a couple of weeks and is so excited – do you have any idea why ?

6-6-09 good guys 124

Here is my “center” child…LOL ! She is almost 19 and she really wants to buy this truck – She is only 5’1” …I don’t think she can get into it…..

6-6-09 good guys 108

Whatcha think about this man sporting a “man skirt” ! My son and I were walking behind him  and I am so bad…I had to take a picture….I asked my son if he would wear this “man skirt” he said “no, because the Scots wear skirts not the Irish like me….LOL” Look at the heavy construction…looks like Carhardt…..Silly I know….

If you saw my post this last weekend “steer on the loose” – you know all about my toes – Yes, they are sporting Hot Pink – Baby !

The other funny things I saw at the car show were:

Older men with mullets…..I  tried to take pictures but for the whole effect I needed front views and it is hard to get….I think next time I am going to pose as a professional photographer and just ask, hee hee.

Ladies wearing High Heels ! Yes, it is the thing to do while walking for miles on cement and grass…..I need to do this next time….

I saw a lady with finger nails so long they wrapped around her hands and they were Purple ! I really wanted a picture – got to use that photographer line….

Hope I wasn’t a bore and my pictures of me didn’t scare you off…..

Hugs ~ Kammy

Kathy said...

Kammy your so funny...I always laugh when I come to visit! Love the hot pink toes.. You cleaned up well from chasing the steer! Like your new blog, and thanks for the info....I wonder what white letters would look like on your blog. Bet the words would show up even better on your dark background...I love to try new things...like changing a room around!!! Keep up the good work, xoxo~Kathy~ @ Sweet Up-NorthMornings...

Ali said...

Great pics, and I gotta say, I love that truck lol! And the man skirt, that is just plain odd. I hope that guy was Scottish!

Marsha's Mpressions said...

Kammy, what a fun post! You took some great photos! You know, hunting for a great shot can be so much fun no matter where you are!

The Barnett Family said...

I am married to a fellow car buff....he is working on a 30 something Chevy Truck. I do not go to a lot of car shows becuz our little 7 year old does not care too much about them. I am TOTALLY people watcher!!!! Great shots....glad you got your toes cleaned-up and repainted!

Lori E said...

At one point I had most of a car inside my basement, not in the garage but actually in the basement. It is gone now but I kept the husband. He often goes to Hot August Nights and has so many great car pictures.
We were at a flea market on Sunday and although there was nothing good to buy it was so worth the $1 admission just to people watch. Good grief it is almost scary.

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

OMG Kammy! I loved the post! I like hot cars (and trucks). But you really do have to take photos of the other weird stuff. I could just picture it in my mind, but photos would have been better. Loved the "man skirt", what a hoot! Would hate for my man to wear one, but seeing someone else, it was a riot!!! The hot pink toe nails are looking good. And I too need a Victoria Secret lift up bra, but they probably don't sell one in my size.

Jannet said...

Hi Kammy, no I didn't get bored or scared at all..lol You look great sweetie. Did get a good belly laugh...thank you! I've heard of them 'Man Skirts', Gosh, there should be a law against that..lol
I absolutely love love love the cars, gosh I love the way they roar, we do have some pretty cool car shows like that here in Denmark too. Maybe someday I'll be able to share. (between you and me, I collect Hot Country die cast cars and trucks) but don't tell anyone, our friends think it is my hubby's collection..hehe.
Thanks for sharing this! I can't wait for next chapter..lol
Hugs, Jannet

ellen b said...

Oh now this is a good car show. We went to one on Saturday and there were a total of maybe 12 cars :0)
The grounds and the historic houses at least made it a nice tour and not disappointing. I guess the answer to your question is that yes I live with a car buff and we have a 2-1/2 story garage, shop and loft at our home in Washington that he is absent from because he's working in California boo hoo hoo...

ButterYum said...

Who doesn't love the old cars... they're great! Nice post!

salmagundi said...

Loved the Carhardt man skirt. What type of man wears that? I can only guess. We've enjoyed a lot of rain and I love how green everything is. I just don't want any of the Denver area's tornadoes. Were you anywhere close to those? Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sally

nanny said...

Jadehollow said...

Kammy .. Those are some awesome hotrods! We always look forward to the Southern Cruisers Car show here in Covington every July.
Thanks for sharing.

Love all those cars. The man skirt is too funny.

The color of your toe nails is wonderful.

Tammy518 said...

Kammy, what a fun post! The cars look fab, and your "babies" are so cute! The manskirt is too weird!

I love the nail polish also. I have OPI's Hot, Hot, Hot on my toes right now. It's fun to bring out the bright colors for spring/summer.

P.S. did you ever get any bee flatware? LOL!

stefanie said...

wow, those are some bright cars, looks like fun, and looks like everybody is having fun. happy 1st outdoor wednesday!!!!

Chandy said...

Wow! those pictures look great! The hot pink is where it's at. LOL

Since big pics are catching on, I'll have to be a better photographer before I convert to the big screen, you know? LOL

mbkatc230 said...

Great post! We are car fanatics here too and plan hubby's birthday in October around the Good Guys show at Texas Motor Speedway. I love the cars, but my favorite is the people watching. I like that photographer line, may have to borrow it in October tee hee. Thanks for stopping by. Kathy

Joan@anythinggoeshere said...

Love the man skirt and the cars are pretty cool today. Great colors and photos. Funny and lighthearted post. Thanks for visiting me on Outdoor Wednesday.

Martha said...

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday -- love the pictures of the car show!

g.suzie said...

Kammy, thanks for stopping by, we have a few things in common, hubbies like car shows, we both live in the west, and the phalztgraph dishes! You are fun I will be checking in on you soon, great pictures btw!!!

"Blossom" said...

My husband and I attend at least two car shows a year.

New England Girl said...

Loved these photos. It seems like a nice - and humorous - day out! I wish I could have seen the mullets, they always crack me up. I don't think I could be daring enough to ask for photos though; I would be near breaking down in laughter the entire time! If you do ask sometime, I hope you do better than I would. :)

And I say you let your daughter get the truck :)

Big hugs,
Alicia

prof en retraite said...

Great photos! And that man skirt...seriously? Out in public? I have never seen that...well, not on anyone other than a Scotsman! Love your new header photo!...Debbie

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Fun post. Not sure about the "man skirt". :)
Thanks for visiting.

Maria Berg said...

That is outdoors and a lot of fun cars to look at and nice bright colors.

My children are not there yet, the oldest is 8.
That time will come.

I'll have to stop back with Jacob so he can drool over your cars. He's driving now (permit) and all I hear is how he wants a "classic". You've got some cute kids there! ~ Robyn

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

Oh no - it doesn't ruin the angle at all. I kinda like it :-) And my those cars are huge and real colorful :-)

This is a fun post with fun pictures lithe man in that skirt and your son's reply to you question :-)

Also, curious 'bout those long nails you saw LoL

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Cindy said...

Gorgeous photos! No to man skirts and high heels and walking do not go together for me. Oh the Pain!! Fingernails that wrap around her hand? I wonder if she was growing them for the Guinness Book of World Records. Great post. Hugs ~cindy s~

irenet said...

The vintage car shots were great. The rest too. Enjoyed looking at your family,
:)

Mary said...

What wonderful pictures. This was also a first for me - I had never seen a man skirt before. Thanks for sharing your photographs with us. Have a wonderful day.

Still Learning said...

Those are some rockin cars. Looks like fun.

Brenda said...

I think all men just love cars period. Maybe all don't want to work on them. Or attend shows. But they drool over some special car. Like they do with TV's. This is a cute post. And I love the angles!

Joyce said...

Oh this post made me smile especially the Man skirt. Your photos are super so I guess you are having fun with the new camera and your toes are looking good:)

xinex said...

Sounds like a fun trip, Kammie! It's good your hubby's hooked on something, that way he can't complain about your shopping addiction, LOL! Those are some hot cars and you have cute kids!...Christine

tapirgal said...

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday. Keep on taking the shots that make YOU happy! Nice pix!

susan said...

A carhadrt kilt--a tongue twister and a really funny idea! Wonder if they make camoflouge ? :)

Boosalis Bloggle said...

I live in California...I've seen a few man skirts. YIKES!! I think if men want to wear skirts, they should at least have to shave their legs. ;)

Thanks for sharing your day at the Car Show. It was fun!!

Becky K. said...

Great cars!

The big antique car show was last week over in York County here.

It is always a big deal.

Hard to tell what kind of photos you might get if you did pose as a photographer and ask. The ones you have already are a hoot.

Janie's World said...

I love old car shows. But really? A man skirt? Did he really pull that off? Too funny!!

RobinfromCA said...

What a hilarious post! I love old American muscle cars - gas hogs that they are. They remind me of a simpler time. My husband drove a '69 Mustang when we met. Wish we had it now! The man skirt - not so great. If it's not a kilt it's just plain...well...you know.

Love your header!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog :o)

I love your pictures of the car show. Glad to know that I'm not the only one who itches to photograph the not so ordinary folks. Love the man skirt one, lol.

Boosalis Bloggle said...

Yes, all four of the baby birds are gone. I checked their nest this morning to see if any of them might have changed their minds and come back. But, no...the nest is empty. Hopefully, they'll make an appearance every now and then. It really was a blessing to watch these guys so closely.

Have a wonderful weekend!
