  1. Wow - what a nice "back end!" Was it Marilyn Monroe's car in a former life?

  2. And what an awesome car! I don't think I have seen too many pink cars - except for Mary Kaye Cosmetic cars?

  3. That's a gorgeous car. Is that a 1954 model? (Not that I'd know the difference.)

  4. Great capture. At first I was going to say "good eye". But after I thought about it I realized that it would not be easy to miss!

  5. Double blast from the past!
    Do you remember your 1st encounter with an Avon lady? (everone must have had one...) I was 12 or 13 and my partents were visiting a friend of my aunts -- and she had a small, narrow room with a wall of Avon cosmetics. I was not so much a girly-girl but the room still fascinated me.
