This past weekend, Dominic and I attended the Hershey Elegance antique car show at the Hershey Hotel. It was a lot of fun. We wandered through the cars and saw some amazing automobiles from every era imaginable. However the best part of the event was the people watching. There were the boys dressed as newsies for their car, the woman who looked like she came right out of the Ascot racetrack scene of My Fair Lady. Her black and white outfit was elegant and her hat was massive. She looked perfect when she sat on the back seat of the Rolls Royce in the parade.
There were people like us who wandered through the cars and then the owner who took the time to lift the hood of his car and show us the green engine and tell us all about the car, including the built in tool box and how long it too to get the immaculate finish on the car. He clearly loved the car and automobiles in general. I swear he’ll show up in a story sometime. Of course one of the most fun things at the show was James Bond car from Goldfinger.
I often get asked how I can keep coming up with different characters and stories and the best answer I have is that I look for stories everywhere, including the television personalities in the vintage Lamborghini.
