09/10/06- This car show, set
against a ventura marina backdrop, was too tempting
to pass. So
Hiboy and I decided to return to Ventura that sunday and show
off a little :).
Woke up before
dawn and hit the road at sunrise. It was a magnificent sight to
cherish forever: A glorious sun rising over the mountains while
we cruised through endless fields of crops in Oxnard. The air
was fresh, filled with the scent of grass, wet earth and herbs.
You have never seen a sunrise until you see it while at the
wheel of a 1932 roadster :). That was a nice treat.
A little less nice
was the huge line of cars waiting to get through the gates of
the car show. A little over 150 cars maybe more? And only one
woman driver there hehe (yours truly). We were somehow able to get a
spot on the grass and enjoyed a sunny, yet cool day right on the
marina. We didn't come home with any trophies but did gather an
impressive amount of compliments, which felt just as good. Oh,
and I got to wear my new Lucky 13 retro vixen dress hehehehe...
