Vintage Beauty

While driving through an old neighborhood in San Diego, I spotted this beautiful convertible. It was at a private residence, so I took this shot from afar:

I then moved over to the sidewalk and captured the front view. The car is a Mercury Eight, which I’ve never heard of. Can you believe the finish on it? I took this on Veterans Day, hence the bunting and flag.

Mercury Eight

For this instagram, I used the Photo Toaster app, which is a lot of fun to use. I’ll be doing a post on that app in the future.

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving, so I’m taking the week off. I’ll be back on the 26th.

Great weekend, everyone!

  2. What a fantastic motor car. Vintage American car design is just fantastic.I don’t get crazy over cars but there is something so special about these.

    Cool car! I don’t know what the toaster app does because I didn’t see anything hugely remarkable. I need to check out instagram.
