Well, it was that time again, Father's Day. We decided to venture out on a cold and rainy morning (yes, it was cold and rainy in June in Southern California) to join the throngs at Donut Derelicts in Huntington Beach CA. Every Saturday morning from 6:30 to 8:30 you can find all sizes and shapes of cars. Big cars, little cars, cars that run on steam. New cars, old cars, cars that make men dream. I was excited about the donuts, few things can drag me out of bed on a Saturday morning at 5:30 am that do not include yarn. We did have a good time (I had a 'porcupine'...yummy) and I was able to take a few fun photos of hood ornaments. The car I liked the best, an Isabella, left before I was able to photograph it. There was a Stanley Steamer and a Kaiser, that is the ornament with the clear acrylic piece. It is amazing what cars there are, and the people who love them. I did very much enjoy listening to the stories and learning some history. Fun and delicious!
