Thoughtful Thursday


I am earnestly enjoying the moment in which I am composing this post.  It is morning and the children of the house are sleeping late.  It is silent, except for the ceiling fan whirring in the background.  

When I drive to the neighboring town for a big grocery trip, I pass this car on the back roads.  It has resided in this shed for as long as I have lived in this old farmhouse, and much longer than that I suppose.  A treasure in red.  

Enjoy your Thursday, my friends.

  3. That is a Studebaker maybe 1949-51, not sure but the rear tapers down in a similar manner, kind of made to look like a fighter plane of the late 40s, really a neat car. There is a 41 Chevrolet in an old building in Boones Mill but I can't catch the light right for a photo. Something to think about on a quiet morning.

  14. Hubby identified it as a Studebaker, also. I love the pointy jet-look of it. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog about my poor kitty. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  22. This is a fancier Studebaker than what we had when I was a kid. Ours was suppose to be black but the paint faded in the Florida sun so bad it turned a dusty gray. My parents named it the ole' gray ghost. Later in life I have had the great opportunity of knowing and working with a member of the Studebaker family. He's passed on now but he left this world as a friend to many. He had a nice collection of these cars, even before they had full bodies.
