Ruby Tuesday #54: "As Old As I Am, And Even Redder"

"1960 MG A 1600"
Raleigh, NC - April 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

I somehow managed to completely space off Ruby Tuesday this week until just this minute when someone else's R/T post turned up in my reader. I'm really becoming less of a fan of this egtting old bit all the time. But never fear, even redder than my face is this 1960 MGA I shot at a car show a few months back.

If you look as good as this 1960 MG, Mojo, don't worry about getting old! :) Happy Ruby Tuesday!

The red is not the classic green we see often on British roadsters, but enlivens the classic sports car, with the accent on the Sport...I like the wooden steering wheels and leather, too. The 1600 might have been the twin-cam MGA, I wonder. The later MGB looked a bit more modern, the curvaceous lines of the MGA more classic!

1960 isn't old! You're not even 50 yet!
Great detail shot.

Melli said...

Dimple took my line! You've got ONE MORE YEAR until you're OLD! LOL! But look how SHINY that car is! I'm certain, even if I do sometimes turn that RED, I'm sure I'm NEVER that shiny!
