T-Bird Crusin’ and the Rod and Reel Pier

Still working with some post-processes.  I took this photo at The Village in FL in 2008.  Just playing around with some of the Adobe techniques.  These two guys look like they’re reliving their youth a bit.

T-Bird Zoom

This is the Rod and Reel pier on Anna Maria Island.  Snapped this past August and then I played around with HDR technique.

Frank Sinatra’s 1955 Ford Thunderbird

with 5 comments

This was one of the special cars at The Villages Cruise In this past weekend.  Hope you enjoy the photos.

This car was owned by Capitol Records Company and bought specifically for Frank Sinatra on September 29, 1955 (I believe it is a 1955 model year Thunderbird). Shipped to the Fountainebleau Hotel ( Fountain Blue Hilton Resort Miami ), Miami Beach, FL October 3, 1955.

Used as a courtesy car for recording artist and movie stars, etc. it was sold in 1963 to Cecil Ford, of Miami Beach, FL
