…and already it is taking over my brain.
Today’s obsession is these forest green glass door knobs.
Look at them. Just look at them.
Tell me that isn’t just about the coolest door knob ever. With the green, and the glass and…
You’ve never given door knobs a thought?
Oh, you’re one of those normal, well-adjusted people. Aren’t you?
Anyway… I have a distinct weakness for glass door knobs. and them being dark green glass just puts it over the top. It would “only” cost $600 to replace all the visible door knobs in the house with these. Sigh…
I was once again
obsessively searching perusing craigslist for classic cars and came across an ad for a 1956 Chrysler Windsor that had no pictures. Not knowing what one looked like I did some googling and came across this example at Country Classic Cars.
Maybe it is just that I play far to many video games but this car looks, for all the world, like a game designers idea of a generic “1950s” car. Mind you, it isn’t unattractive but the styling just confused & bland enough to look more like a pastiche of mid-fifties design than like a real car. This car looks distinctly like what it is, the gawky ackward evolutionary stage between the much curvier earlier models and the finarrirfic “forward look” 1957 models.
The car was only $1500 and supposedly in good shape, but looking at the pictures of ’56 chryslers I just wouldn’t know what to do
with the car. It is lost between two design worlds, and while I love orphans I think this is one someone else will have to adopt.
