Doors on Wheels

More recycling this week courtesy of doors I’ve found that were on wheels.

When we think of doors our first thoughts usually turn to buildings and architecture.

Often overlooked, vehicles can deliver some interesting doors as well. And sometimes I’ll admit, that it’s just an excuse to capture an interesting vehicle too 😉

Here’s a sampling of some of the ones that have sneaked their way into my doors posts over the years:

Citroen 2CV in Switzerland

Montreal police cruiser – the ugly decals were during a labour dispute between the union and the city.

Landscapers delivery truck – Florence, Italy

Montreal – Plateau Mont-Royal. I shot this one for the street art, the Smart car was a bonus.

Old Fiat used by an Italian restaurant in Atlanta for pizza delivery .

Can we all agree that this one is about the street art?

Montreal street after a winter snowstorm

What happens in Vegas….

Is it an old station wagon or an old Hearse? Ile D’Orleans – near Quebec City

Pretty sure this is a Mary Kay Cadillac – Las Vegas

The Long Island #7 line

An old Ford found on the road while touring Cape Breton island

Transportation perfected – Italian style. Found in a dealership in Rome

Transportation simplified – also Rome

Peace, love, and camping near the Amalfi coast – Italy

Pitigliano, I believe

Montreal Metro (subway) pulling out of the station.

    Oh my – the sculpture of the dancers!! It is a sculpture right? Not a painting? It’s stunning. It looks like it’s carved from ice!

    This post proves that like any good photographer, your camera will focus on whatever catches your eye 😀

  15. This is a fun post, Norm. Cheerful, just what we need. I’m wondering though what you were doing going around Ferrari dealers in Rome…

    I’m celebrating a little anniversary today. It’s five years since I heard a certain curtain call… 😉

    Norm – this post was wonderful. Fresh and variety and quite a keepsake to highlight cars and the changes – and of course the doors.
    The two little cars with the street art is my fav
    For scale – and the cars also coordinate and match the art. Felt like it was an installation including the cars.
    Lastly, you inspired me to share some photos of cars (VW hot wheels miniatures) that we took at Woodstock last year.

    Many favorites here, the first one, because a ugly Duck was our fist car, which liked to stall on big intersections, love the one in the snow, and the train, because I went by train to school 5th and 6th grade. https://wp.me/p9EWyp-1We

      Out of curiosity a sat in one at an auto show not long after they first came out. I felt like I was in a rolling aquarium 😀
      I’m sure they’re fine for city driving but I would not be comfortable doing longer distances on the highway in one.

  30. Brilliant selection of car doors, Norm. My favourite was the 2CV, because I used to own one. We called it “Dilly Dilly” because it was Lavender Blue (ref the song). With two adults in the front (rubbing shoulders) I managed to get up to the speed limit (70mph) going downhill once. Those were the days. I am still posting photographs of Venetian doors, rather dodgy (see what I did there?) ones this week. https://drprunesquallor279704606.wordpress.com/2020/05/07/thursday-doors-love-in-the-time-of-corona-7/

    Nice collection. I used to live in Flushing, Queens as a girl, and took the number 7 into Manhattan. I sometimes still do because the train stops at many different ethnic neighborhoods. It is fun to get off and explore and eat the food (https://www.nycgo.com/articles/seventh-heaven-dining-along-the-7-train-slideshow).

    I love mobile doors, Norm, particularly the commuter trains. I especially like the way you have NYC framed in between the structure of the train platform and the car.

    You have some classics and some rare ones here. It’s also good to see flower power is alive and well. Good job!

  33. What fun, Norm, and you got some great street art as well. The little cars seem like they’d be great and they’d certainly be easy to park. But as my husband said when the girls were learning to drive and then had their own cars, we want them to have something big and strong, something that let’s them walk away if they’re in an accident. 🙂

      Thanks Ally. Good eye! Yes now that I look closer, that is a gas can. I doubt it would be legal to drive around with it full, but I guess that was how they rolled back then 😉

  38. What a great selection, Norm. My mother used to have a little blue fiat just like the one in your post, I think it was called a Fiat Bambino. I’m torn between the Citreon and the Motorhome/RV. Let me think ………………. Motorhome wins. Here’s my offering this week, thanks. https://jeanreinhardt.wordpress.com/2020/05/07/thursday-doors-cavan-county-museum-11/
