IN MY MERRY MOTOR CAR

It's painfully obvious that I'm desperate for post titles....

This is a hodgepodge collection of old automobile photos. My information concerning them is limited (I have no clue about the makes or models of the cars) but they're fascinating to look at.

 "Fill 'er up!"

Mrs. F. Blevin and daughter - 1907

George Earl Chamberlain in 1919
(former governor of Oregon)
Just like new
 Taxi cabs at Union Station
Washington D.C. 1914
George P. Wetmore and wife
in 1909
Senator and former governor of Rhode Island 
 Sunday drive - circa 1905

 Ralph Coffin jumping over Sylvanus Stoke's Rolls Royce in 1916.
That horse looks pretty darn close to the car. I imagine that's Mr. Stokes on the left - - screaming.
 It's that pesky horse jumper again
sailing over the same Rolls Royce. It was hard to tell in the first photo, but the car is occupied.
 Red Cross Motor Corps, 1918

Ft. Myers, around 1916

Armored car, 1917
Captain Renwick
J. Pierpont Morgan, 1914
 Herbert Hoover, 1917
 Hudson Autos, Washington D.C.
(year unknown) 
Underwood Typewriter Company truck
 Mrs. John E. Harris
The dame has a great set of wheels
 Mechanics working in garage
date unknown

Heck, they all break down now and then....

FROM HUNKS TO HORRORS

There's no shame in growing old - it's part of the life process and we all have to do it. Unless, of course, you want to die young and make a great looking corpse.....

It is shocking, however, to see the grim reality of once-famous hunks who disintegrated  into horrifying parodies of their former selves.

It's not my intention to be cruel (well, then again, maybe it is) but I had fun digging through the dusty archives to find these examples of male celebrities who were ravaged with age.

 Okay, in my humble opinion Mick Jagger was never exactly a hunk, and hard living largely contributed to his physical demise....those famous pouty lips seem to have diminished through the years...


French actor Alain Delon
(he used to be one of my favorites)

 Leonard Whiting
Wherefore art thou, Romeo?


Pierce Brosnan



 Troy Donahue


 Clint Eastwood




Warren Beatty

Omar Sharif
 OMG!



James Fox


 Nick Nolte
(his infamous mug shot)

 Richard Gere



Miles O'Keeffe


  Gerard Depardieu
Wow!


Jan-Michael Vincent



Christopher Walken
He looks like a 90-year-old spinster

Boy George 
a boy no more


Keir Duella



Terence Stamp

 Arnold Schwarzenegger


Keith Richards


Macaulay Culkin
who proves you don't have to be old to look ravaged

I have a lot more, but I'll spare you....for now.
