I always do that out of courtesy and to avoid people claiming "portrait rights" to their cars


I have shot a lot of cars, several 100+ every year for some years now and nobody asked me to wash out license plates except a tourist that didn't have a car to show up and that was three days ago and now you talk of the same thing.
Perhaps one should, never really thought about it.

Last Sunday there was an oldtimer show in the neighbor town.
It was a bit of a mixed bag. Some cars may have fallen under the definition of an oldtimer, but if those were oldtimers, what does is say about me ?

I am not an expert, but generally there were friendly, proud and enthusiastic owners, happy to tell about their baby.
Didn't spot any wheels from Woodrim here.

The weather was good on Sunday, but unfortunately the show was located in a street. That didn't make it easier to capture the cars in a nice way with the public and ugly backgrounds .

Nevertheless let me share some of my shots (spread over a couple of posts) in the next couple of days. (hopefully Flickr will come back on line after the planned downtime tomorrow!). It will be cars and some of their details. Hope you will like them.

#1 Ford A (ca. 1930, the oldest car shown here)



#2 Its interior



#3 Morgan



#4 Morgan dashboard



#5 Triumph Spitfire



#6 MG (1954)



#7 Take me home KITT !



#8 Another MG from behind



#9 Peugeot 404



#10 Old Ford fire truck



#11 Buskers to cheer up the public


To be continued...

Beautiful series, Fred!

For me the Ford Model A stands out - that's been the model following Model T, I think. Next in my list would be the fire truck, "KITT" (is this car allowed to use real roads?)and the Morgan. But the buskers are also very nice!

TFS!

Thanks Harald! KITT is licenced for use on the public road indeed.
Flickr is still offline, so no next episode yet..

HA! If that green MG had a proper wheel, you might have. The wheel on #4 is actually very interesting. It isn't very common but very similar to one that was an option for 1962 Morgan Plus 4. One very happy Austin-Healey Frogeye Sprite owner will have his Lempert wheel as soon as your money hungry customs releases it.

woodrim

I guess most customs are money hungry, especially now with all the trade barriers   

#12 Panhard & Levassor



#13 Its footboard



#14 Cinquecento



#15 No show without a Mustang!



#16 Mustang interior



#17 Lotus



#18 Lotus interior



#19 Triumph



#20 - Corvette



#21 Oldsmobile


Thanks for your patience.
More to come

Great sequel!

for me the interiors stand out, #16 is really special - great color, and I think the rendering is somehow different (a different way of processing?) - this is my clear favorite (it's all about "teal"). But #21 is also a special one: The headlamp seems to be "living", I mean it's eyeing up!

TFS, Fred -

I wonder if the colour rendering of #16 is due to its having been photographed through the tinted glass?
The interiors in ##16 and 18 are a real glimpse into what was then regarded as cutting edge 'futuristic' design.
In the Lotus, you'd be taking your eyes well off the road to read the furthest dials.

Most enjoyable set.

Thanks Harald and Joe. #16 is an experiment with split tone in LR to get a more vintage look. I hadn't really used those sliders before and just try to learn a bit more about this color treatment.

Again, beautiful images!

#23 is a Citroen SM (with a Maserati engine), btw. And #27 really asks for heavy HDR-treatment!

TFS!

Thanks Harald! You are right in #23, corrected it.
Probably right on #27 as well. After >100 pics you sometimes get a bit blind.
You like this version of #27 better?

Does this Citren 2CV 6 KA, 1981, 21 kW (28hp) count as a vintage car? Phew, 2CV 6 KA, what does it all stand for?
Focus on driver.
