That’s Not a Plant, That’s a Streetrod

While strolling through the San Diego Botanic Gardens, we came across this beauty:


A 1934 Ford Streetrod, to be exact. I didn’t even know a car like this existed. There was a wedding taking place later in the day, so perhaps it was for photos? I love vintage cars that have been restored so beautifully.


The interior was as pristine as the exterior.


See the rumble seat in the back? Riding in that has to be just a little bit scary.


At first glance, we thought it was a Jaguar because of the hood ornament. Then we got closer and saw the Ford logo.


This chrome greyhound attaches through the radiator cap and a replica will set you back $89.99.
I’m surprised that Ford used this, as Greyhound Bus Lines had been in existence since the 1920s.


What a great accessory for wedding photos.

Hope your week’s going well so far. . . .

    That is a real beauty. So lovingly restored and polished. I have never seen a greyhound on a Ford. These are so problematic here. My friend owns a vintage Jaguar but he had to remove the cat beacuse it was constantly stolen.

  2. That is a lil’ deuce coupe if ever there was one. I would love to drive that car. Great find and great pics:)

  3. Ooh! What a fabulous car. Pristine condition, too.
    I’ve heard that they use baby diapers to get a streak free shine. šŸ™‚
