Golden Monkey

A golden monkey sits a top a 1937 Ford at a Florida car show on July 20, 2013.

People do all sorts of things to dress up their cars at these shows, I’ve seen M&M characters, faux dogs and beavers, Howdy Doody, Uncle Sam and even Sylvester and Tweety.

BMC Riley Kestrel

This is a British Motor Cars Riley Kestrel as seen at a Florida car show in March 2013.

According to the information on the car, it has a hydrolastic suspension, the engine went in sideways to provide more passenger room (5 people) and it’s easily maneuverable.  It also has front wheel drive, twin carbs and disc brakes.  The interior was made of polished walnut, the contoured seats were made with real leather.

I don’t have a year on the vehicle I am guessing probably somewhere in the mid 60’s like 1965 or 1966.  According to Wikipedia the model was produced from 1965 t0 1969.

It was a beautiful car and it got a lot of attention by the show patrons and I’m sure it collected its share of votes for Best in Show.

I’m using a tighter crop of this shot as my wallpaper.
