I love doing these missions, they have been getting me out of the house.  I went out looking for a vinyard, and since I didn't find the beauty that I was looking for there, I found this beauty in a huge car garage on my way back.  This was the only one of this style. Most of the cars were Muscle Cars,  I'm not a car person, but even I was drooling!!
(f20.0, ISO 100, 1/2.5sec)

QUICK NOTE!  I want to know your photography blogs!  I've been snooping and want to see all that you got!  please leave me a comment telling me your site! thanks! Don't be shy!

What a cool old car!!! I had a vision in my head of capturing something like this, but I had no idea where to go find a car like this... I'm glad you were able to find one! It's so beautiful!

I love the vintage effect you put on it too, vintage effects are my absolute favorite ones to use in editing.

Great job!

I initially wanted to do something sorta like this, but I don't know where to find one. I'm glad someone did!

I was out in town looking for Vintage things too and saw a car just like this one pass me at the stop sigh, I thought Oh Darn...there goes the perfect picture so I am glad to see that you captured an old Vintage car. Looks great. Love the coloring effect, makes it look really vintage.

This picture is a total perfect "vintage" shot... it looks like the sort of picture that one of those HUGE box cameras took in the 30's (?) it's beautiful and I can't imagine a better car for this challenge!!!

Old cars are the best. So reliable and simple. I love the back lighting on the car.
