Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut, or getting nowhere in life? Spinning your wheels, if you've even got wheels.
These cars are fixtures on the main street of the village where I live. Their owner has a newer model that he still drives. I guess his old cars just have too many fond memories to let them go. Maybe his wife collects salt shakers or china poodles and this is his own sort of collection. As the man in question is the proprietor of Snider's Garage, he has the place to proudly display them. Main Street is his own version of the curio cabinet or kitchen shelf.
They also make excellent planters.
For some reason, there are a lot of these cars still on the road in the village. Maybe Mr. Snider had an Oldsmobile dealership at one time. There's one older fellow that I see every evening parked in the empty lot in front of the hardware store, sitting in his Olds with his window rolled down, wearing his baseball cap, watching the comings and goings on Main Street and waiting for friends and acquaintances to drive up and have a chat with him. Kind of like drive-through visits, I guess. Maybe his house is such a mess he doesn't want anyone to come over.
Or maybe he's embarrassed by how much his wife's salt & pepper shakers collection has gotten out of hand.
