Are you lucky enough to own a car like this? I have never owned one that was more than 5 years old but can appreciate the beauty in this one and others like it. Close to where we live is the world renowned Southwards Car Museum and I often used to take my son and later the grandsons there when they were younger.
Owners of these beauties really care for them. They are certainly pampered. Kept in a warm dry garage away from the vagaries of the weather; they are regularly cleaned and polished, their motors serviced; primped and polished they are very well cared for.
Well now, I’ve become vintage. I too am kept in a warm dry house (rather than a garage) away from the vagaries of the weather. I’m cleaned, polished and primped. I have regular services, hairdressers, facials, manicures, pedicures, dentists and the occasional visit to the GP.
We all know that with regular servicing and maintenance, cars can perform well for many years after their manufacture and so I plan to keep up the servicing and maintenance of me.
Looking on Google for a quote as I have nothing in my many books, I came across this.
“Recent generations seem to consider ‘old-fashioned’ thinking
and without place in the modern world.
I beg to differ. After all, who has greater faith?
He who looks to and learns from the past,
or the man who cares not for consequence?”
