Lovely! It reminds me of the old Studebaker truck my Dad drove when I was small.

Ol'B---Thanks. I'm working on an old '48 Chevy right now.

Debra---Now that was a gorgeous truck! I don't know if this link will work in this comment box, but...

A few more inches and it would have had a different feeling to the title.

Very nice. The building really captures that New Mexico look that I remember -- Pueblo architecture or whatever it's called. (Haven't been to New Mexico in 15 years, but it doesn't look like any other state I've ever been to.)

jadedj said...

Tom---I took slight liberties with the colors, but it's the feel of the place, I think. Those stake type fences and of course, adobe buildings are everywhere. Definitely a state of it's own.

Hi, thanks for that link provided above -- I copied and pasted it into the browser to see the truck. Yes, that looks very like my Dad's -- except in much nicer condition, LOL!

jadedj said...

Debra---Good. I hope it brought good memories to mind :)
