British Motorcars, Rhode Island
On a beautiful, Sunday afternoon last weekend I noodled south to charming Bristol, Rhode Island for the British Motorcar Festival-a low key, laid-back car show featuring some fantastic cars on the scenic grounds of Colt State Park overlooking the ocean.
I love cars. Always have. Although my knowledge of repair is just about limited to a basic oil change, I do appreciate the care and love of detailing by true car enthusiasts. Vintage cars seem to be better designed than later models-less bling, fewer gadgets, simplified mechanics, cleaner lines-maybe that’s just a nostalgic yearning.
I do think I could use this wicker, trunk mounted, picnic basket, if for no other reason than just charm.
A Land Rover Defender 90 is on my wish list. It’s been on the list for quite some time as I really can’t wrap my head around the price for a vehicle that would be too conspicuous to drive in metro Boston. Guess I will have to wait until I get to my much-wished-for lifestyle change to a more rural place complete with a dirt driveway.
A little red scooter is the epitome of a good time.
