My husband and I arrived in Palm Springs on a Friday afternoon. The trip was intended to be a relaxing get-away so I decided to take a little nap. It was late afternoon by the time I woke up, and after a quick swim I dressed for the evening and we headed downtown for dinner.
Palm Springs is a small, but lovely, desert city. The downtown has been updated over the years and now feels a bit like Disneyland in places. Crowds of people swarm the more popular karaoke bars and outdoor restaurants, but as soon as you leave the main drag the city is still and quiet. On our way back to the hotel we passed this vintage car lot and I had to stop and look. As there was no one around my husband got out the camera and the lights and we set up an impromptu photo shoot.
In the background is one of the most expensive cars on the lot. This beautiful red Cadillac with its huge chrome rocket-shaped grill can be yours for $100,000.
Looking at these photos reminds me that good design never dies. These cars are just as fabulous now as when they were new. Yes, they’ve been fixed up and painted, but the shapes, lines, and details of these vintage cars and trucks stand the test of time. Personally I’d love to drive around town in the chic little black coupe pictured below.
I’m wearing a Veronica M black strapless maxi dress and little blue clutch from the same store. The earrings and bracelet were both purchased on Gilt.com. The sandals are by Roberto Del Calo.
See any cars you like? Do you agree that great design is eternal?
