Big, (boys) Toys..

Big (boys) Toys.

Another Combination of Two Challenges.

Hey, attention all you wonderful lady followers of mine, can I take this moment to apologise to you all. This post seems to be more favoured towards the tastes of men. However ladies if you do like this slideshow of mine then  this will really make my day, make my week..

These pictures were taken at a Custom Car show in August this year, in the New Forest, England. This day was a very hot day, unusual for us English to be able to say this. But true it was, I even got a touch of sunburn during my wandering around the ground. There were many more than what I am showing, but did not want to over kill. So because of this I have only inserted seven very good examples of Big (boys) Toys..

  4. Um.

    1) I posted some pix of classic cars in Spain in my village back in March

    http://roughseasinthemed.wordpress.com/2012/03/05/cigarettes-compounds-and-cars/

    2) I seem to spend my internet life fighting sexism and pointing out that I am not a lady. I am not Lady Roughseas. I have written a blog post mentioning it .. http://cloudsmovingin.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/journalism-2-give-us-a-clue/

    3) I also have a Land Rover blog. One of my blog pals has just written about changing her brake/tail/stop light.

    Seriously, I spend a lot of time trying to fight against stereotypical attitudes about what women like and what men like etc. And mostly, the people who comment on my LR blog are women.

    Anyway, an interesting slideshow, although I didn’t know enough to identify each vehicle. I did find a Ford! But this non-car-interested woman would appreciate a bit more info next time :) And great piccies, I even made my partner look at them too :D

    • I am sorry about this, will provide details in future for you..I do have many others, glad I did not put more on,, heehaa!! I do agree with you abut the sexism side,, and on behalf of me this was just a lighthearted gesture and not seriously meant.as most of my followers are ladies..I had wondered if someone would say something,, and roughseas I was right.. Just in case you were serious it was not meant to offend, I am not sexist in any form,, if you are not a lady what may I know you to be..heehee, I dont think you are a sir..Always appreciated Roughseas,,,

  23. These are real beauties. You photos are terrific. My neighbors restores old old car. He has a huge four car garage to do it in; even the old fashioned upolstery machines for the deat covers. They are masterpieces when they are done. He displas them in car shows and wins many prizes and has lots of sales. Old is never out of style when it comes to cars. Cool entry….
