Speaking of antiques, spent yesterday afternoon at the Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance, probably the best car show I've ever been to, on the grounds of the gorgeous Boca Raton Hotel & Resort. The restorations were out of sight, and there were a few custom cars that were truly unusual. Wish I had a better picture of this one...a custom car built around a 1928 Rolls Royce Meteor engine on a 1920s Cadillac frame and suspension, with aluminum sheet metal panels and wood torpedo body.
Even saw car man Wayne Carini from Chasing Classic cars on the Velocity channel. A girl can dream!

Down here in gorgeous Palm Beach getting ready to do the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival at the Fairgrounds off Southern Blvd. Show opens Fri. Feb. 28 for early buying at 9 a.m. Show continues Sat. & Sun. March 1st & 2nd. It's well worth your time, because there are treasures to be had if you're patient and diligent. Everyone in the area, as far as Miami, comes to this show. I have shopped very well at this show & hope to again this month.
