Only in LA

Driving up Pacific Coast Highway, we were thrilled to see a classic vintage convertible driven by an elegant couple, cruising along in traffic. I waved as we passed, and was rewarded with an answering wave.

Then, we pulled up to the light at Entrada, and realized that the couple in the classic car was being filmed by a cameraman in an SUV driving behind.

"What kind of car is that?" I yelled out the window. The cameraman told me but I can't remember the name of the car. What I do remember is that he said, "We're shooting a music video!"

Then the light changed and we pulled out.

We watched as the vehicle with the camera maneuvered ahead of us to get a good shot. Then traffic opened up, and the car changed lanes. "Beautiful!" shouted [The Man I Love] as we passed them, and the woman in the passenger seat waved to us again. Then we left them behind and headed up our own canyon road.

Can anyone tell me what this beautiful sleek vintage car is?

Rolls Royce made a car like that, but the bumper and lights don't see quite right.

It's a Auburn/Cord boat tail.

(Thank my husband for figuring that out!)

It's a gorgeous car, whatever it is.

Yes! It is an Auburn Boat tail. They were originally made in the town where I live. Every Labor Day the Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs come home for a huge festival. It is great to see these beautiful works of art floating around on the roads in our town. If you want to learn more go to

Just popping in to say hello, and let you know I think of you often. I miss you at Pink Saturdays.♥

I will show the car to my husband, and see if he knows.
