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 !


Ford Shoots Chevy

The recent car show in Wichita was actually sponsored in large part by the Ford Motor Company.  Since my last name is Ford, I thought about trying to pass myself off as somebody from corporate headquarters.   I am either too shy, honest, or chicken to have tried that –  but oh,  how amusing it could have been, at least until they called security.

This is a little self portrait, reflected in a shiny Chevy hupcap.   A high percentage of the cars on display were Chevy’s.   I have no explanation.


Bel Air

There was a big car show called the Black Top Nationals in Wichita this past weekend.  Yesterday I spent some time there shooting.  This hood ornament on a 1950’s vintage Chevrolet Bel Air is my favorite image so far, but I haven’t finished post processing the rest.   I’d guess at least 20% of the pre 1960 cars at the show were Chevrolet Bel Airs.   Ken Bello, I had this post planned before I saw your’s this morning, I swear!
