Theme Thursday - Aged



Ok I totally cheated this week. I would have loved to been able to take the kids to a beautiful historic landmark and take some great shots but I didn't find the time to fit it into my schedule. Maybe someday soon cause I love this idea. So instead I took a picture of the oldest thing I could think of around my house.

This is a 1974 Harley Davidson three-wheel Golf Cart. We acquired it (meaning it was free) from a friend of a friend with every intention of fixing it up so it can run again. It needs a lot of work. But as we are finding out, there is quite a following for these things. Maybe we will make it all spiffy and sell it...or maybe not.

Here's a front view as it sits in my garage. As you can see it used to belong to a Larry and Carol, not sure who they are. Its in pretty bad shape. Needs some body work, engine work, tires, seats...wait, did I say this was a good idea?

The kids like to sit on it and pretend it works.

Close up of the broken seat. Guess we need a new one.

Anyway, when its all said and done we do hope to get some use out of having a Golf Cart around. But will it look like this when its done, doubtful!

I should have given us all a month to do this assignment, huh?? I'm hoping to take Anya to someplace tomorrow. We'll see.

I love your "old" item, too! I can see how the kids would absolutely love to play on it.

that spiffy last photo certainly makes it worth dreaming about, eh? :)

Perfect old item for the kids to have fun on! I'm with you, I didn't have time to get anywhere this week. (Not to mention I forgot to look at the theme until yesterday!)

Mine will go up later.

The kids playing on it is priceless - I love old things like that to pretend on! Or at least I did when I was a kid!

:) It was a tough assignment this week, Stacy makes us think! :)

Oh how fun! What a project ya'll have taken on! Great photo of the kids playing on it. :)

That's cool! I would have never spotted that as an "old" item but your shots make the contrast obvious! Good eye!

Beautiful shots and I'm envious of that cart - that just screams FUN!
