Three Muses Challenge - Automobiles


When I was young, my family and I used to visit friends who lived on a farm. They didn't actually farm but instead used the property to store vintage cars. We used to wander through the barn where animals used to be sheltered looking at all of the old automobiles. I remember the cracked seats, the instrument panels, the cranks that were used to start them and the smell of times and travels past. Occasionally we'd get to ride in the rumble seat as the owner tootled us along the country backroads....always exciting! This is my entry for this week's Three Muses challenge with the theme of "automobiles".
