Modern Art Monday: In The Lot At The National Corvette Museum

If you read any of my posts here over the weekend, you do know there is a Hooniverse Weekend Edition by now don’t you? Anyway, this olelongrooffan got to visit the National Corvette Museum over the weekend.

Now one of the things this olelongrooffan does as often as I can is to shoot whatever cool stuff is in the parking lot of whatever car event I am attending. This is something shared in common with Hooniverse contributor, Jim Yu, also known to Intense Debate as Maxichamp and within the Hoon contributor world as Jim II. Yeah enough already, let’s head to the lot.
First up was the Chevrolet Monte Carlo seen above.  That pre 5 mph rear bumper suggests to me it is a 1973 but I have been known to be wrong previously.

In the background of that image you can spot this 52 Caddy as well as a later model original bug, complete with the Herbie the Love Bug theme. I love the former, the latter, well Meh.

There also were a couple of late 40’s/early 50’s shoebox Fords. The featured one was a ragtop but the one to the left facing us was a beautiful tudor. Next to that tudor was some indistinguishable SUV then an early 60’s Ford convertible. Facing us from across the way, over that BMW roadster was a mid 40’s Ford pickup and a big Poncho vert to its right. On its left was a split window vehicle that I did not determine. I needed to find my boss before he threatened to put a leash on this olelongrooffan like a small child in a crowd.

But I do have this to say about that. This extremely, rare 1952 Desoto really was the prettiest car I saw that whole day.

And, of course, it is a longroof.
