As I noted on Twitter yesterday, I've seen more Bentleys here in Winter Park, FL than I've ever seen before in my life outside a dealership. However, today while on a (failed) run to buy a present for dinogrl, I ran across some seriously nasty-ass Detroit iron.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

(And yes, I did manage to score for both calendula_witch and the_child — unfortunately, in neither case does it involve a Bentley or an old Detroit monster.)

... in the sixth photo, you lose your justification to bitch about aesthetics.

Not only are you wearing fluorescent tie-dyed socks, YOU'RE WEARING THEM WITH SANDALS.

The chrome grille sees all.

So, it wasn't the detroit iron that was itself ugly, it was the questionable paintjobs inflicted upon it...

If nothing else, at least I know where not to go to get any more tattoo work done...

What's wrong with wearing tie-dyed socks with sandals? Although I admit I haven't got any fluorescent ones, myself. Must rectify that.

Socks + Sandals in a warm climate = You're either retired, or a tourist, and in either case, will probably get chided or mocked by the locals

Nah, in my case sometimes it just means I don't like getting blisters. Sandals rub after a while.

Plus sandals without socks = stinky feets.

One can but wonder about a tattoo parlor with a hearse. Does this mean that a certain number of their clientele don't survive the ink?

What Jay forgets to mention is that Winter Park is a spot of shi-shi-ness in the middle of a ghetto. How it ever got to be that way is a mystery to me.

And I hope he's got more than 1 pair of those socks because he was wearing them yesterday too!

It seems that every tattoo parlor requires mean old Detroit iron. In Lawrence, we have Big Daddy Cadillac's big... well, you can guess.

I understand that if one puts one's business name on a vehicle (including authors' names, I hear!), one can deduct the car on taxes....
