Havana, Cuba - mechanics in the street

Havana, Cuba - mechanics in the street

This photo, showing our 1958 DeSoto Firesweep (thanks, ptcruiser, for the ID!), was taken in Apalachicola, Florida, in 1964. I’m at the left, pointing seemingly at nothing, along with my mom, my brother Jeffrey and our new Chihuahua, Tiger. My dad, as a pilot, was always on the lookout for a great place to keep his airplanes, and Apalach had an abandoned Army Air Force training field with big empty hangars to spare.

CAR SHOW - I went to breakfast this morning and on the way back, saw a car show at Metro Center.  

So what to do on a beautiful Saturday morning in December in Arizona? Go to a car show and snap some photos.

It was entertaining and free!

The Batmobile - Picture: Barrett-Jackson/George Barris/AP
George Barris poses in Los Angeles with the original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series. The car will be auctioned on January 19, 2013. The 19-foot-long black, bubble-topped car was used in the TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader. Barris transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into a sleek crime-fighting machine. On the show, it boasted lasers and a Batphone and could lay down smokescreens and oil slicks.
