May 13th was the City of La Porte’s 125th Anniversary Car and Air ShowΒ so off I went to see what it was all about πŸ™‚ the vintage planes and cars were a blast to see!

Do I know much about cars or airplanes? Nope…but they sure were pretty! Enjoy! Somewhat of a trip down memory lane with some of the cars πŸ™‚Β

My sister and I have memories of riding in the back of our parent’s new station wagon and getting trucks to honk.

  1. Stunning photos, I don’t know which one to say, this is best than the other.

    All are collectible items, I will have all of them. You know my address please send them, waiting for my parcel πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  2. I can’t decide which one to fall in love. All of them are incredible.

    But let me tell you one interesting piece of information, the technology of fighter planes and fast cars goes side by side. You will be surprised both of them took the technology and methodology.

    It’s a very interesting information if you seek it. There is a great show of NatGeo if I am not wrong describing this long time ago.

    They compared how both of them, compete with each other over a very long span of time to where they are now.

    1. Yes I’d be curious to see that! Those older cars are just so great and fun to see – of course the older I get, the more I notice the interior in particular and how things have changed like the radio! Gosh, I’m getting old ha
