Ruby Tuesday - Ruby Triumph























Ruby Tuesday arrives at the end of the car show schedule up north. The cars will be taken out sparingly from this point until the mere hint of snow. Naturally, given my avocation for rolling sculptures from the past, the point-and-shoot comes along. 


Patti and I went to one last week, and this very cool 1960 Triumph TR-3 captured my attention in shape and style, especially the wire wheels and cut down doors of this two-seat sports car. But what made this vehicle so beautiful is the sheen from the bold paint, so smooth that both picture takers appear in the red mirror. A perfect hue for RT (or is it TR)! See more iterations of ruby at Mary's meme...

I love how you displayed the two photos side by side - sort of like they hook up, but not really.

It would be fun to get folks to guess the car from the tail like that, I was thinking TR-4....

Good Ruby image.
