    Your photos are great, this and the 40s style and the Cotswolds too. Apparently, you live a much more interesting life than I do.

    Thanks Paul,

    It is how my wife and I try and escape the reality of life in the UK with our dubious political leaders and financially difficult times, at least this is free!

    Sorry man, it seems like it's pretty much the same all over.

    Love the shots, especially the stunning Studebaker. What is the object at it's roof line. Is it an attachment to the car or something in the background?

    Object

    I do not have a clue, it looked almost like a storage tube and it was attached to the side of the door panel.

    The car was immaculate as were all of the others and a mix of right hand drive that had been imports.

    They have so much character & style and make you feel happy just to look at them and be near them and it was obvious they receive a lot of love and attention.

    That tube thing is so weird ... it reminds me of an air-raid siren.

    Good pics, I'd have liked to see more of the characters in period style from the first photo.

  12. That is an evaporative cooler think in a desert and a swamp cooler.
    Works best in dry hot climates such as Phoenix, Arizona.

    That Studebaker Champion is indeed a beauty -- particularly with the front bumper removed. The lowered Chevy Stylemaster in the first image is lovely as well.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks all,

    I know nothing about the pedigree of these cars but the Studebaker was stunning in condition and colour!
