Telling tales from around the world

Go for a Drive

with 3 comments

Not sure what brought this on… For someone who hates to drive and pretty much refuses – I admit to a fondness for cars and car graveyards. I have no idea what make this was, but just love the curve of this hood ornament.

I rather think the man who drove this car (and it was surely not a woman) despaired of ever owning a fast car, not with a wife and a growing brood all needing shoes and the rent to pay while they tried to save for a down payment. I rather think he polished this ornament and wondered what it would be like to slip behind the wheel of a Jaguar, with a woman like Julie Christie or Rita Tushingham at his side, wearing cool cool shades and put the pedal to the floor. Just once.

  1. I love how this picture is so abstract. Well, of course it’s a hood ornament, but no, it’s a snail, well, possibly liquid metal.
