Yesterday Tall Husband and I attended the 6th Annual Classy Chassis Concours d'Elegance, benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children -Houston. The 2009 Classy Chassis event's featured marques were Ferrari and Packard. There were 123 entries according to the event catalog. It was a car enthusiast's dream. I fell in love with a little 1957 Porsche Speedster in champagne yellow. Fortunately, Tall Husband is still enthralled with his new red Porsche Cayman; though, I did get nervous when he enquired about the 2009 Bugatti (1.6 million U.S.D. for that baby.)

Come back tomorrow to feast your eyes on more classic cars.

A big Thank you to the event organizers, sponsors and car owners for a wonderful show.

  1. You gotta luv'em. My all time favorite is the Jaguar XKE Convertable in cream exterior with off-white leather interior... fits like a glove.

  2. Thanks for posting pictures of the one of a kind big block Playboy Pink Mustang on your Blog. You will not see another one like her any where. Just so all your viewers will know how special this little Pink Mustang is she appried at $175.000. I just love your little Heights Bungalow.

  3. Pinky,

    No, Thank you...for the pleasure of seeing your wonderful car and for preserving a part of American heritage.

    Way back when the Mustang first came out, I had a little red one. Of course it didn't have the great story of your "Pinky."

  4. The Countrypolitan:

    Oh, I do love the Jaguar XKE in the color combination you mention.

  5. I love your blog - and especially love how great I would look in that '57 speedster...
    I found you through "Tongue in Cheek" and am so happy that I did! I love your bungalow post - aren't they so charming?
