HAHA! Richard Isn't this the darndest thing?? :) Now how in the world did this happen?? :)) some kind of expense no doubt to convert those doors to flip up like that, and check out the matching wheel linings! I just HAD to grab a shot of this and share it!! thanks for the comment Richard.

Best wishes, Sarah

HAHA Steve that very well may be what she had to do. Can you tell us about these doors that tilt up like that? may be just attached to some type of hindge??? your're the DOC on this kind of handicraft, was this an easy feat to accomplish?? It was an odd looking entry in this Martin Luther King Parade in our town. I didn't upload anything else but this interesting sight! Iam happy you liked this unusual "altered vehicle" entry! It was fun to watch it go up the street!! It was a popular feature of the whole parade for sure..

Kindest wishes, ~~Sarah~~ X

Never seen these before? Every month, there's a car parade in downtown Augusta where the blacks show off their "donk" cars. They deck out their rides with huge chrome rims, custom paint jobs, and "lambo doors" all the while blaring rap from their subwoofers. The people are very artistic and the variety can be surprising. It's nice to drive by the parade, but the atmosphere isn't very friendly towards folks like me driving a plain ol' minivan! ;)

Anywhere around downtown or South Augusta you will find these custom cars. I guess it's more of a city thing.

Wishing you the best from Hephzibah,

Liam ;)

Well, HELLO Liam:)) where have you been?? it is great to see you. It must be fun to go downtown Augusta (I lived there when a very young girl) to see the blacks show off their cars, that is what is happening here:) This thing really caught everyone's eye. it was quite "the car to see" in this parade..I was parked very near the beginning of the parade and caught this right there in front of one of our cotton warehouses, the sign right behind the car shows the name of it. I think this guy has the "woofer" blasting also Liam, the little girl (maybe his daugher) was enjoying the whole thing immensely!!(or NOT by looking at her expression) HAHAHA Did you take note of Steve Drury's blue link right above, and read about this kind of door configuration?? I guess this is the owners version of one of those mentioned in that link.:) WE have some "souped up vehicles" here too Liam, somewhere close by in my gallery you will find a "pink" one, but not this modified??:)) Hope you have been well up there, we are doing good down the road, having some more seasonal weather now, but don't like the bad stuff that blasted through Wed. night, tho we escaped with no damage, however my son who is an engineer with our local rural electic company, was out most of the night with fallen trees and electrical lines down out in the countryside....right here in town, there was no damage. again, its great to hear from you. I dont get up that way at all much anymore, however we have good friends who are now in Waynesboro near you! Have a great weekend....from South of you:) ~~Sarah~~

That`s the trouble with getting older the new drivers are getting younger and smaller LIKE

Sarah O on February 3, 2013

Indeed they are Haggs, well this one is a bit "too young", don't you think? :)) I think it was her dad driving, or maybe a big brother? enjoyed your visit to my gallery and your comments are always appreciated. Sarah

Hi Sarah!

We are getting by up here. I've had a nasty sickness for the past few days, but am recovering with time. I have been taking photos, but don't really have much time for Panoramio anymore.

March was one crazy month! Way too cold for my liking! I am enjoying this warmer weather now, though.

Best wishes to you from Hephzibah!

Liam ;)

Sarah O on April 8, 2013

Hello Liam so nice to see you, and am sorry to hear you have been ill, but glad to read you are recovering..some kind of "virus" has gone around down here, attaching Mr. O, and me too in a lighter version, but we are well. You mention you don't have much time, what is keeping you so busy Liam. I don't think I ever knew what job you do, hope it is something you enjoy. March was cold wasn't it, and Mr O and I both had birthdays in March, so we are a year "younger":)) Yes spring is here I think, Liam, and it is welcomed, isn't it? thanks for visiting.

Kind greetings up the road a bit...from Metter ~~Sarah~~
