Sunday in Jo’burg. The weather unsettled. Breezy, cool, the sky laden with clouds. In another ten days, Rob arrives from Toronto. The house has been found, the movers booked, tomorrow I will go look at a car. Piece by piece, the architecture of this new-old phase of our lives is constructed.

To brighten the weekend, here are some more images of Havana’s old cars, this time in colour.

  1. Stunning cars! They go well with the mood that is coming together for this next phase of both your lives in South Africa! πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦

  2. The paint jobs of American cars of the 1950s representated three breaks with the past, from a near continuation of Henry Ford;’s dictum: any color as long as it is black; from monchrome to two-tone (the PR term that Madison Avenue coined); and the first appearance of “candy apple” – metallic flecked – options.

    Thanks for the reminder!
