A Little d'Elegance Never Hurts

A day in the life of a Norwegian-American family historian doesn't always include things specifically Norwegian. On Sunday, September 7, my husband John and I attended the Kirkland Concours d'Elegance (http://www.kirklandconcours.com/): an annual classic car awards show on the shores of lovely Lake Washington. Morning fog gave way to gorgeous sunshine at about the noon hour, in plenty of time for the Best of Shows to strut their stuff for an appreciative crowd.

Here are some photographs I snapped while walking the grounds. Oh, what a love affair humankind has with the automobile...

Everyone loves a Woody...

Pardon me, do you happen to have any Grey Poupon?

Blinding Hudson bling-bling.

Just spoking around...

My personal favorite: a lipstick red 1953 Chrysler New Yorker. No gal worries about a bad hair day while cruising in this. Come to Mama!

Tin Wagons lined up and ready for tailgate parties.

The Kinnick entry: not yet an oldie, but definitely a fast little goody (I mean the 2003 Boxster S Cabriolet, and not necessarily the Husband).

Loved the photo captions - they were perfect.

Come To Mama indeed!

Good to hear from you, fM. Some captions were a little naughty, but who says we family historians can't be mishchievous sometimes? As the old saying goes (?): all data and no fun makes a genealogist a dull girl.
