FORD – Built Tough!

FORD - Built Tough

During a recent weekend visit to Fort Worth, Texas, we dropped by Cavender’s to check out their amazing selection of boots. Their inventory is beyond compare and of the finest quality. We both ended up with a new pair, and for Erik, his first ever. We also found this vintage truck on the front lawn and it just called out – do me in HDR (High Dynamic Range Photography). This was hand-held with a high-speed bracketted burst from the trusty Nikon D7000. Usually we always use a Tripod and remote shutter release, but sometime that is just not an option (did not pack a Tripod). Not too shabby I would say!

Now a bit about this fine establishment! In 1957, founder James R. Cavender started Cavender’s Dairy Mart in Pittsburg, Texas. Eventually, in 1965, he decided to open a new business which featured the latest fashion trends in western clothing. The store was so popular that the chain grew to over 50 stores, located in 6 states.

Cavender’s busiest times of year fall during rodeo season and at back-to-school. In Fort Worth, Texas, the rodeo is held in January, while in Houston, it occurs in late February and early March. In San Antonio, the rodeo comes to town in February.

Often the stores carry the same general merchandise at each location depending on size of the location. Brands which you can see in most any Cavender’s location are Wrangler, Cinch/Cruel Girl, Justin Boot Company, Lucchese Boot Company, Anderson Bean Boot Company, Stetson Hat Company, Resistol Hat Company, Ariat Boot and Clothing company, and many others. Cavender’s is the exclusive outlet for Larry Mahan Clothing.

  3. Ils fabriquaient les belles voitures à l’époque, par contre j’ai un faible pour les petites voitures sportives anglaises, je ne veux pas acheter une vieille voiture, mais j’adore regarder les vieilles voitures… Peut-être une petite jaguar un jour… Même si la Jaguar Type E est un modèle classique qui bat la plupart des modèles américains… Je l’adore !!!

    Il fut un accident entre une camionnette et une petite Peugeot des années 1940 à Melun, environ 70 km de Paris… Comment réparer la vieille Peugeot ?

    Une belle gueule… Une jolie image !
