Never too old to learn. You may have noticed my passion for vintage, retro trucks. It turns out I’m not alone in this love of what is sometimes called “precious metal” by the fans of Street Rodders, Pick ups, Jeeps. you name if its on wheels and it has a motor when I went looking for information on this “interest” of mine, except for the usual magazines on new vehicles and trucks, I found zip. Then after church yesterday,not having the car I decided to the walk a mile or so to the shopping mall. There I found a Chapters where I was delighted to see a section will all kinds of magazines that caught my attention. Canadian Hot Rods, The pick up issue. (Wow), even found a JP magazine (Jeeps, you have to know I was beside myself with happiness. Outside the store while waiting for my husband I saw a magazine called Bounder in a vendor with free reading material. I leaned in for a closer look, it looked like one of the pricey magazines that I had just paid for in Chapters. No, it did say Complimentary on the cover, I also saw that it had something in it about Classic Cars, of course I took a copy.
The magazine says it is “by- for-about men” The title of the magazine uses the symbol for man/male instead of the letter O, when it spells out Bounder. Except for one or two articles, I read it from cover to cover, the next issue Wheels Edition, will out in spring 2015. It seems that copies are getting harder and harder to find, they do provide a partial list in the magazine, but if you are interested, you might want to contact Brian Warren e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Bounder magazine is a production of Warrenty Communications Inc.
Ok now to the meaty part =^_^= in the past if anyone had said to me “precious metal” my eyes would have sparkled and I would have thought immediately of gold,platinum and more gold, even better encrusted with precious gemstones.
Now decades into my life’s journey I discover that under that heading I can put my love of old trucks and cars. In my research I also discovered that many of the boards I visited in Pinterest were hosted by ladies. There are a huge numbers of women out there with a passion for the vintage vehicle. AND for those of you unaware of who most of the designers and makes of the vintage jewelry were, it was mostly men.
Always in life it takes Yin/Yang, male and female energies to make a whole. In the fashion world, how many of the greats were and are male. It is the wearer that showcases the design, and in the automotive world, it may be dominated by the builders (often males), but it is the drivers who in the end determine the success of the product.
Learning can be such a pleasure, in PL we strive to find new ways to improve ourselves and to continue to move forward, one step at a time, just do it.. You never know what you will learn that will bring about more “happy happy happy”
May the Universe, bless and keep you safe today and always…..
