~ Welcome to our Little Vintage Camper Blog…

We bought our Camper/Trailer on Saturday, April 2, 2011

It’s been slow going…but now 4 (now 5) years later, I’m happy to say we are in FULL BLOWN REBUILD MODE!

Won’t you come along and see how we do it.

I hope more than anything…we get to camp soon!

Oh yes, and leave a comment, and let me know you visited…. I love to read them and will answer each one!

More Car Show: The 'COOL' hot color!

These are more pictures of the car show. 
Turquoise and Cool Blues were very HOT! that day-- and quite a few of the vehicles caught my eye! 
I guess I didn't realize how many were in the BLUE SPECTRUM  until I downloaded my photos. 

* Again, let me say- these cars were really packed in so; Me being the not-so-savvy-photographer and cramped quarters-- the pictures are NOT quite as good as I'd like. 
But I just love this color! 

 Blue Pony. 

I liked everything about this truck right down to the White Walls! 
 Can't get enough of that chrome! 
 Beautiful Truck! 
 I talked to the owner of this Thunderbird-- he re-did his car himself. 
 Amateur paint job. But very nicely done. 
 The inside-- Sweet! 
Room for a party inside. 
 A cruiser for sure! 

The Way. 
Under the Hood. 

 Little G.T. Oh My Goodness! 
 I think this was my favorite Muscle Car of the day. 
Don't get me wrong-- there were lots of Ponies there that Day... but the GTO, man- you gotta love it! 

 Blue Book ends! 

 I Loved this little Ranchero. 
 I talked with the owner for quite a few minutes. She enjoyed restoring this little car/truck.  She said she shopped around for just the right color of  Turquoise and took it personally to the paint and body guy to paint it. There she is sitting in her chair.
 She paid particular attention to detail and added little 'pops' of turquoise throughout. 
Love that bread box. You could have a picnic in the bed of this truck right on the beach! 
 Then I asked if I could get her picture.  She was just the cutest thing in her Ranchero get-up with turquoise jeans! The Lady Ranchero and her Ranchero! 
 I think this was my favorite.  The Falcon Ranchero. 
And lastly another muscle car. 

There are still plenty of car pictures to show.  
I'll post them periodically.  I don't want to bore you with all of them at once. 
I haven't forgotten this is supposed to be a blog about my TIN Can-- 

Which by the way, I'd love to see painted with a sweet Turquoise Stripe down the side-- 
But if you've read my other blog (maybe you have maybe you haven't) But Honey (aka: the husband) recently had a TRIPLE BYPASS-- and so all projects are currently on hold. 

I hope to do a few things slowly with the camper. But for now-- my days are filled nursing my man back to good health! 

Thanks for reading. 

And we know that all things work together for Good  to those that love God and are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 

Grace and Peace. 


  1. That Thunderbird is exquisite!!! I want one of those. My hubby wants an old pick=up and you have some great ones here, we stopped and looked at one today. I think they wanted too much for it, but it was probably worth it. We will get one some day!
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. Those are great pictures of the cars. I love old cars. I use to have a 66 Mustang and have regretted selling it eversince.

    I hope that your husband is doing well from surgery. I have had heart surgery(no bypass, though) and I would not wish that one anyone!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I googled and didn't find anything yet. I do have a lady that may help me. I hope so. Or I will have to buy another pattern. I hate to have to do that.

    have a great day
