Every year toward the end of May, a little color comes to Springfield. The Hot Rods come to town for their big get together. I'm not a car person, I think of them as a way to get from here to there and not much more, but even I have to smile at the bright colored old timers and the fancy paint jobs.
It feels a little like a movie set as we drive down the street and see bright red, yellow and blue cars from by gone days pull up beside us at a light, or meet them in a parking lot of a restaurant.
There are old time trucks, too
Flames seem to be a very popular theme.
Some have their own little matching trailers to make up for the lack of trunk space.
Some look like they forgot to finish them.
There are also some that are a little more subtle.
A lot of these cars look mighty uncomfortable to ride around in. Here's my favorite.
Look at those headlights.
It has this cute little trunk on the back.
OK, so I'm a material girl. If I have to ride around in an uncomfortable old car, make mine a Rolls Royce.
