Busy weekend

I gave up tent camping this weekend due to an injury and painted instead.
This 57' Chevy is property of the police chief of Chagrin Falls. I always wanted one of these as a teen, but I'll have to settle for a painting of one. These cars ruled the streets in the 60's- an era that todays kids will never experience.
The city scape is of my home town, Painesville, Ohio. A movie was shot here in 1962 , "One Potato,Two Potato", about an interracial couple falling in love and marrying. Extremely controversial stuff then. This was about the time Obama was born. The movie shows these buildings and also included the ones that were destroyed when the Feds offered urban renewal funds to revitalize the city. Nice going!
