Is there a junior adult?

This rat rod style hot rod at a small car show in Rio Rancho caught my eye for where it was parked, as well as how it looked.  I cannot say I had ever seen a parking space marked "SENIOR ADULT" before.  Does that mean there must be a junior adult or a senior child space somewhere in the world?  This hot rod was about as ratty as they can come, and I mean no offense by that!  It looked awesome and make me think I needed a tetanus shot just for standing next to it!

Going to a car show for the first time, you never really know what to expect with regard to how many cars, how cool of cars, and even what kinds of cars.  I was pleasantly surprised by a recent small car show I went to in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.  A good number of classic cars many of which had very interesting interiors.  With my new Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro SP lens on my Nikon D750 exclusively while at this car show, I decided to make the theme of my shots the cool classic car interiors, with a few detail shots here and there.  Check out the sense of humor of a 1966 Mustang owner with what passes for an "airbag" in his classic car!
