Beautiful! I love those old cars.

My father restored a 1930's Cord when I was a kid.  What an awesome ride that was.

My father was quite a promoter.  I saw many amazing things growing up in West Hollywood.  He later sold his Cord to the jazz musician Pete Fountain.  Later the singer Trini Lopez ended up with it.

It's almost eerie to peak into these windows to the past. It reminds me that we're just one more generation of countless generations living our lives and doing our thing, and that one day people will be reading about our time in a history book.

I were lucky enough to visit Pompeii. Whole town literally frozen in time - and they were just like us. Same hopes, dreams, desires, needs. Something that is easy to forget.
