What a beautiful car! In contrast, this past week, I saw a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (I think) that was completely covered in rust. I sincerely hope the owner plans a complete restoration. He's got a job ahead of him.

We recently had an Art Deco Auto exhibit. It had lots of beautiful cars. The love and care put into this things is amazing. Here is a link to what was at the exhibit.

Three score and ten years from now I wonder if a restored Ford Focus or Toyota Camry will carry the same panache. The setting looks like a country club somewhere in the Hamptons.

Love the first shot, great angle and the little sun flare off the fender just adds to the beauty of the car.

There were so many people all around the cars they were like flies on honey. I had to use the car as much as possible to block them out. It was shot on the Cobble Beach Golf Course. A snobby course for the upper crust of society. There was a definite distinction between those VIPs and the rest of the rabble who paid $40 to take photos. Roped off areas you could not enter if you werent a VIP. Even had a helicopter flying people like Jason Priestly in. Ten minutes after it landed those cars closest got a layer of dust which was particularly noticeable on the black models. Here is another one I just finished.
