Cool Chrome on Hot Wheels

I spent some good time over at Alki Beach in West Seattle over this weekend, of which I needed.

During that pleasant time, I stumbled upon a good old-fashioned sidewalk car show along a block of the Alki Park area. Behold, beautiful vintage classic cars (mostly Chevies) of the 50s and 60s, all with polished chrome parts, intricate details, lavish interiors, overall high style.  Much love and appreciation were put into restoring these symbols  of big car Americana history.

So now, here are some pictures of this recent cultural observance.

A curious minivan remained parked around the corner from home, covered in fashionable accessories and dazzling decorative art.

I admired much but had little time to study further (very busy evening). I did shoot some pictures but regret not getting much further on the close details.

I just did a bit more research and found that the car is named the Excessories Odd-Yssey, decorated by local artist Kelly Lyles. Her website is http://www.kellyspot.com, and definitely worth a look if you would like to see more of this awesome car, and the creative mind behind the wheels.

Picture of Today 3/14/15, DeLorean Delights

Today at the nearby Seattle Center by the great Needle, I came across these timeless vehicular beauties.

These original DeLorean DMC-12 vehicles, with its design very familiar to those Back to the Future movie fans; parked together for public appreciation. The rear engine, the stainless steel armor, the roomy interior, winged doors, and the design sleek enough for time travel; all part of the fantastic charm that makes the DeLorean very widely appreciated.

These Deloreans were brought into view by the Pacific Northwest DeLorean Club (pndc.org). I thank them very much for sharing of these marvels. I wish I could have seem them all drive through the streets of Seattle. I have seen these parked at various car shows and conventions, but never in motion. Still, I feel lucky to witness this rarity once more (approximately 9000 made), but now times five together.

Here below are some pictures. You may notice some movie references..
