I’ve always liked Buicks. This is a classic from 1962. Hope you like it.
When I was in high school, my friend’s parents had a 1962 Buick Electra Convertible – White with Red Leather Interior. It was beautiful. This same friend – his Dad had a 1962 Buick Invicta 2Dr Coupe (beige) as a company car. I think they were a Buick family.
There were a number of Mustangs at The Villages Cruise-In. Here are a few. I wish I had better shots – but there was such a crowd there that day. I guess if I’m going be any kind of photographer – I need to get a little “pushy” and make sure I “get the shot!”
Since I’m the only one judging, (but I’m not King of the World) – - I think the most beautiful car at The Villages Cruise In last weekend was this 1948 Plymouth (Belvedere) Sedan.
The paint on this car was just stunning! It’s the most beautiful blue I’ve even seen on an automobile. The curves and lines seem to augment the beautiful color (or maybe the other way around) – its such a nice looking car and such a good example of a “classic car”. Classic American-made. I’m not sure if Cerulean is the proper name for the color blue here. I just think its beautiful – and I’ve always been a GM-Buick-Olds-kind-of-guy.
I had a lot of fun with the classic cars series that I’ve posted over the past week. I enjoyed taking the pictures, studying them, performing a bit of photo magic with software. I’m new at photography, so I’ve learned an awful lot. I love cars.
Anyway – - – this weekend I’m going to post what I thought was the BEST in SHOW from my shoot at The Villages in Florida. And no, its not a dog named Uno !
Here’s a sliver of a preview for you. Please check back with me soon.
PS – I love the “blue” in this car. Just wait til you see the whole car!!!
These are some metal soft drink signs that one would find nailed to the outside of a corner grocery store, or pharmacy, or even a barn or gas station. I remember the ribbed Orange Crush bottles, but I never heard of Topp Cola.
