Look But Don’t Touch

While on our road trip we spontaneously stopped at a small car show.  When we spotted this sign we knew it had to be shared.  Not only did it bring a smile but it’s the truth.  A Classic Car Is Much Like A Man’s Wife Look But Don’t Touch.

So true, so true and good advice!

Posted by Rene Fabre, Marketing in the Digital Age (First American Title) almost 8 years ago

I happened to stumble upon a big car show while passing through Sun Valley, ID a few years back.  My wife and I happened to stop in, with me being more enthused than her.  What I found interesting is that men were actually dusting their cars...  I was rather chocked to see that, as after all these years, I thought men were incapable of seeing dust.  I guess it is a matter of where the dust settles!

We have a classic car show here in Los Altos in the Fall.  Almost all the owners have little signs saying the same thing - Look but don't touch.

Too funny John, I sure do love classic car shows. Have a great Sunday

Good afternoon friends -

I'm glad you dropped by and checked out the fun sign.  We found it comical yet it rings so very true.  Hope you enjoyed a great weekend in all you did.

Posted by John McCormack, CRS, Honesty, Integrity, Results, Experienced. HIRE Me! (Albuquerque Homes Realty) almost 8 years ago

Yup....very true. And don't touch my husband either (not you John...those foxy ladies)!

That sign leaves little doubt of the intention. :)

I'll have to remember that next time I go to one!  Hopefully I didn't make any of the owners mad at the one we just had here! 

Have a great week,

John, That is an eyecatcher. I think some men would rather their wife be touched than their classic car.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 8 years ago

John, having a car guy for a sweetie, I think that this is excellent advice.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) almost 8 years ago
