One last image from the car show.   A great old black Cadillac.   It was at last years show also, I have many a shot of it’s hood ornament, of which I have posted a couple in the past.  (The third photo down in my recent “hood ornament bonanza” post for example.   It’s a big old hulking piece of American metal, full of interesting details and a boat load of character, beautifully restored and maintained.

Last year around this time I posted a “Ford Shoots Chevy” photo from the Blacktop Nationals car show.  This year it was a Ford that had the best hubcap for a self portrait.   So there you have it!

Just a couple of Ford related images from the Blacktop Nationals car show in Wichita a couple of weeks ago.   I love the details on the old cars.   I was going to say I love the details on the old Ford’s, but I see that in the mirror every day wink-wink.

Seen at the Blacktop Nationals car show in Wichita last weekend.  I believe this a Chevy, circa 1936.   It was beautiful.  I’m guessing this color was not among those offered by Chevrolet in the 1930’s !


AMC Pacer!

I just returned from two hours of exhausting walking around at the Blacktop Nationals car show in Wichita, Ks.   I haven’t had time yet to do any real post processing work on the material, except for these two….this is for you Ken Bello!   Knowing  you are obsessed with the classic AMC Pacer, one of the great misunderstood genius car designs of modern times, when I saw this, I immediately knew I had to share.

 

 

Oh yeah, this is what the Pacer on the top was sitting on…..
