Main Street Reunion 2010.

It's that time of year again - time to enjoy the Main Street Reunion Car Show which is held on the streets of downtown Napa; lots of classic cars, sun and fun. This was the third year in a row that Vinomaker and I have attended, but this time we had lots of people in tow.
For Vinomaker, this event is like stepping back in time for a day since many of these cars were commonplace to him growing up as an American teenager. For the English contingent, and there were nine of us, it was a crash course in America's love affair with the automobile. Any of these cars, with their copious amounts of shiny chrome, tail-fins, flared fenders and omnipresent hood ornaments, could have been a much drooled over centrefold in a glossy magazine.
The evening was spent celebrating a major family event. Some great wines were quaffed (which I hope to chronicle in future posts), much food was consumed, and those of us with a passion for all things chocolate were thoroughly satisfied. A good time was had by all.

What nice legs the man on your left has.

Thud: That was a lot of fun wasn't it?

Percy: You're back!
It was a very well attended event...so sorry, I don't know who the legs belong to. But now that you mention it they do look rather splendid.

Vinogirl said...

Monkey, if it's not a song already it should be.

WH: In the reflection, below the headlight, to the left of the photograph.

Wartime Housewife said...

Oh I see. I hope Thud and Percy will be very happy together...

Vinogirl said...

WH, I truly perish the thought!

It is the legs then, not the car, that's taking the limelight here.
I love both the car and the legs...but I guess it's Thud and Percy now so I better take the backseat (chuckle).
