That's a nice car Neil, well captured in this environment. Beautiful interior shot.

Thanks, Fred - it's been in the family from new and to say it exudes elegance is an understatement! I don't believe it has been restored either - certainly not internally anyway from what I could see, though the paintwork did look a little 'new' in places! Available for weddings by all accounts...

Thanks and best regards, Neil.

A chance encounter a couple of month ago with an Opel Record from around 1960, so only slightly younger than I






Both A700 + Min 50/1.4

A very nice image of this version of the Opel Rekord, Pieter (I think I saw my last one in Stanley Donen's movie "Charade" when Audrey Hepburn is returning from her vacation)!

Here a chance encounter at my regular bus stop: Audi 100 S Coupe (BTW: without the - secret, after regular working hours - development of the Audi 100 Volkswagen would have not kept the brand), built 1973-1976.

Harald - that 100 Coupe is in startlingly good condition; I cannot recall the last time I saw one in the UK on the road (they were always a rarity even then). Super colour as well!

[QUOTE=Coast] OK Guys,
I can tell you what the deal is. I don't have to read about it anywhere, because I lived it, in NY if you can believe what that must have been like! Crazy

I was living it as well, only a few years later with a '66 Thunderbird as my main cruiser. It wasn't that great from stoplight to stoplight, but when wound out on the highway, there wasn't much that could match it.
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.

Hello Basil;
Yes T Birds were Fords classics, they had a very nice run. I especially liked the the model that was in American Graffiti w a young Susanne Sommers but they probably were too early to run as good as yours
I've seen 1961 T Birds in custom shows, they seem to be a favorite w the custom guys. Lends itself very nicely.
I looked yours up and it looks like a very very capable Cruiser
A trip down memory lane is always refreshing
thanks for sharing________Coast and if you have any photos pls do

I've developed a newly found appreciation for photographing cars - seems there's a lot of additional areas to consider such as reflection, point-of-view / perspective and background distraction...

1. Ford, Legs and Photographer



2. Thunderbird, person and photographer



3. Chevrolet and Deep Crop

Oh, I just love these shapes and colors! Why can't we have 1920x1080 pixels here? (Of course, that's just a rhetorical question - we have to consider restrictions of bandwidth!).

Yes, #3 a 1957 Chevy probably 2 dr V8 coupe, at its time and more so later yrs was THE most coveted regular car in America, nick named "shoebox" w the bow-tie Chevy emblem

actually my very 1st car, not new and not nearly as good condition, but the photograph aptly says it all

Hi Coast,

A '57 Chevy is a pretty admirable first car!

But yes, you're correct this being a 2-door coupe.

I'm unsure if I'll attempt any more car shots in the future as these failed. Maybe if a car is 'staged' with a good background, but opportunity shots like these at a car show is pretty tough Much respect for those that can pull it off.
