~It's a "56" CHEVY~

Just look at this "Beauty". A 1956 RED and WHITE Chevy 210 Del-Ray, and she's all Ours. Well O.K. almost. Gary has been shopping for a 1956 in honor of my birth year and just so happens to be his favorite year Chevy.
Gary, Dad and Son n Law took a three and half hour road trip to see this little RED lady on Sunday. The boys fell in love with her and so she will be coming home this coming weekend. She just so "PURRTY". When I turned 16 way back when my dear sweet Grandpa gave me his black and white 1957 Pontiac.. I did not realize what I had and sold her a few years later. I was so sorry I did and ever since then I have wanted a vintage car.
You all know how much I love RED, this is a perfect car for us. Gary can't wait to drive her home and shine her all up.
Looks like we might be going to "Hot August Nights" next year in Reno NV. This is one of the fun car shows to show off your Vintage car, held every year.
Now we have to name her.
Do you have a favorite vintage car?

Love it! Congrats! :-)

My fav is a 1969 Chevy Chevelle. Thats what my now husband then boyfriend had all through high school. We loved it!

My favorite is a '57 Chevy. We had one at one time, but sold it. Just didn't have space nor $$$ to keep it the way it should be. It was the turquoise and white model and I just loved it.

What a beautiful car! When I was 12, in 1965 I saw some teenagers driving around in a pale yellow volkswagon convertible with a black top. They looked like they were having so much fun. Ever since then I have wanted a vintage pale yellow volkswagon convertible.

Hi ,
Many years ago we owned one exactly the same heads turned everywhere we went My husband had restored it from an ugly grey shell to it's former glory, Alas it was sold when the children came along and the car went to live in Belgium. We now own a beautiful Hemi Road runner but keep it in Florida as our weather wouldn't do it justice!

Hi Elizabeth,
Thanks for stopping by my place. Boy, what treats to see over here, as well. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Chevy. And the inside looks beautiful too. How fun!
Great job on the amazing headboards below. I especially loved the photo shot at night. And the ceiling light fixture is SO GREAT in that room.
Also, your crown pillows look wonderful in your home!!!
Hope you got lots done this weekend.

Tell Gary, WHAT A GREAT CAR.....You were born 6 years after me!Ha! When I recieved my drivers license my Precious grandfather gave me my grandmothers Chevy Nova...a sweet little white car with red interior...I would give anything to have that car now...Not for the car itself so much but that it would remind me of my grandparents who I adored...Enjoy the super car...wish we were closer, we could go cruisin!!!!!, xoxo~Kathy~ @ Sweet U-North Mornings...

Oh Wow! What a beauty! I love classic cars. I used to have a '67 Mustang and sure do miss it. I actually cried when the new owner drove it away. You will have so much fun cruising around in that sweet ride and you will definitely turn heads!

Have fun!

Elizabeth,
My first car was a 1966 red Ford Mustang. I loved that little car and have such fond memories of it. Your Chevy makes me think back to the wonderful times my friends and I had in that lovely little red Ford.
I love your blog and read each post with anticipation.
Blessings to you today.

In Grace,
Marie

Vicki said...

Hi, Elizabeth,
Oh my goodness! I love it! and Bright Red, too. You are so lucky to be owning that car. I once owned a bright red Plymouth Fury. If you have ever seen the movie, Christine, that is what my car looked like. I enjoyed my visit with you. Come over and visit me at Bunny Cottage if you have the opportunity. Vicki

Oh, to DIE for!!! It is gorgeous.

TY for popping by today ... I could have kept writing forever about our childhoods. I oft wonder how our children gr-kidlings will reflect upon their youthful moments ... they live in a whole different kind of world. In some ways, they are truly missing so much ..............

Have a wonderful week. TTFN ~Marydon

Well,, has any guy else came across a matter with the HDMI notification staying around when you have disconnected the cable? The HDMI cable I use of the [url=http://www.best-hdmi-cable.net]best hdmi cable reviews[/url] works find. There maybe not wrong with my cable.

I use my phone to display to my video, and at times when I remove the HDMI connection, the notification staying around.

It's not a huge deal; just kind of annoying to have it stay in the notifications. It's distracting. The clear button isn¡¯t there in notifications to remove it, and also if you tap it in notifications, it just will leave the notifications screen.

Just curious if anyone else has came across this issue, or, has any advices on a way to remove it.

Great thanks for any of your help.
