They're big, heavy, expensive, and not very fuel efficient. But for those who love their classic cars, there is no other way to get around. And every weekend from spring to fall, you can find these proud owners showing off their machines in shows large and small, each with it's own personality.
The Foulkeways community in Lower Gwynedd hosted a small show Saturday. Small, but high in quality with a terrific selection showcasing America's golden age of manufacturing from the 1930's to the early 1960's. When I cover car shows for the newspaper, I generally photograph people sitting in, looking at or reflected in the chrome of the cars on display. But almost compulsively I also take many extra photos of just the cars - details of shapes, reflections, curves, lines, colors.

Never a home game
They are not the best in this 8-team league, but are holding their own in the mid-low range of the standings. Next year the league is merging with another in Maryland, and will no longer need this nomadic team. Perhaps the Road Warriors will find a home there, or simply split up and play in front of the cheering fans in the hometown stadiums of their former opponents.

First, renters DO pay taxes, through their rent. They pay the landlord, the landlord pays property taxes like the rest of us. Think about it.
Second, and most importantly, the blatantly racist comments about ethnic families have no place in this community or this newspaper. It's the sort of garbage you hear once in a while uttered by the uninformed and undereducated, and one can only hope that this attitude will fall away with the next generation.
