Shadow Shot Sunday - Crosley Corral























Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives and old cars are in vogue - with winter over, those with old cars are now unafraid to take their antiques out since the street sweepers have now removed the ice-melting salt from the roads...last Sunday, there was a car show at Heavenly Donut in nearby Derby the one request was donated food items to fill up the Crosley with the Woody Woodpecker wagon (famous laugh here :) - see Patti's newspaper blog post.

I concentrated on the diminutive Crosley cars - rare when new and with a devoted fan base now for the mere two-cylinder and 26 horsepower (19 kW) and almost cartoonish cute cars. A Crosley car was manufactured by Cincinnati entrepreneur Powell Crosley who invented the first affordable home radio in 1920 and owned the Cincinnati Reds among other items. The car was his only failure as people liked big cars in the 1950s. See modern shadows at SSS2!

What classic vintage cars Oh, to go back to those fabulous days gone by and get to relive a bit of that life. The station wagons with the "real" woods on them are so cool. I can remember them so well. Being 74, I have lots of memories of days past. Loved this post. genie

Fabulous! Did I tell you that I love old cars? I most likely did at least 5 or 6 times!
Next week here in Rio Rancho, we have our annual car show, so now you got me all jazzed up for next weekend's event!

Great show of vintage cars. They do not make cars as good as they did back then.
