Thank you. It was fun photographing this car at night. I’d not had the opportunity to do this before. Obvious problems with flaring. I hope to do more especially with such a gorgeous car as John has.
Nice chrome and glitter. Great photo.
Sherry, thank you. The street lights at night as you said, really make the car glitter.
Oh sorrow ……. even nostalgia is no longer what it used to be …… weep for the days that are gone forever … but smile at the lovely memories.
Jim, yes, nostalgia is a very fitting word. Designer were more interested in the car’s beauty and style than the aerodynamics of today’s autos. To me that’s what makes them so much fun to photograph.
Lovely photo of a lovely car. Nicely done to keep yourself out of the reflections, too. 👍
Rawls, thank you. It is a lovely car. I think I remember John saying that he had done a lot of the interior work. It is white and blue in a very traditional interior. He’s planning on showing at a car show this month and I’m planning on going. I hope to get some shots of the interior.
I’m in that reflection but I was low and the camera was on a tripod.
Nice! Love the shiny classics.
I thought you’d like this.

Nice! I remember when those were new (yeah I’m old, haha)
It’s been a long time for me too. haha!
Stunning. It brings back memories.
Ron, thank you. It’s a beauty and yes on the memories.
Thanks, it’s a stunner. Thanks for taking a look.
Normally I say it has two wheels too many, but that is a lovely shot of a truly iconic car!
wow.. what a polish…=^_^=
It is a beauty. The night shot really makes the shine pop. Thanks for your comment.
Swell! I dos so like this period of American cars!
There is another, of many, that we agree on.
The series I’ve been doing on the design parts of the cars from the collection of the California Automobile Museum might interest you. I’ve been having a lot of fun doing them.
