The Old Chev



What a magnificent weekend for open top touring. Jacinta & I went down to Point Lonsdale to see her Mum (& Dad) for mothers day and this old Chev was parked in Point Lonsdale on Sunday morning. These old cars are awesome in that they had a lot of the things that current vehicles, as far as creature comforts, have but none of the safety features (like crumple zones!). You can't see it from this angle but car is a four seater. The other two seats are found by opening the 'trunk' backwards and climbing in over the top... What a way to spend the weekend... P.S: This wasn't our car although we could probably have offered to swap it for a little while!?!?!
We were having a coffee at a cafe across the road the evening before and three powered paragliders flew past along the beach towards Queenscliff, reigniting my desire to finish my paragliding course and get back up there. One day, when time and money aren't a problem anymore...

That would be what is known as a dickie seat would it not?
I used to travel to Sunday School in one of those.

Definitely a "dickie seat", I never had the opportunity but I always thought it would be fun...
