Default Let's look at some cars - Part 1 (image heavy)

I definitely don't claim to have the car shooting experience of Bob B and Fred S, but as a car enthusiast I do enjoy attending car meets from time to time. When I am attending one, I really just use the camera for snapshots, as I devote most of my attention to just enjoying looking at the cars. Anyway, I did take a lot of shots at a recent meet, and wanted to share some shots with the forum. This post will concentrate on some of the oldest models.

......that is a really fun looking show and perfect weather for it too.

Some fine cars there with the park setting, some shade and hey, the photography is quite fun enjoyable too.

The last photo here shows a '50 - '52 Hudson, I love the 'step down' entry of those old tanks, another tank, but we don't see any of, is the same vintage Nash.

Great fun and good shots! I love the tail lights in #5. Was that Studebaker a Studillac?

Thanks Ted. I don't remember what kind of engine was in the Studebaker, but I thought the writing on the back was cute: "Stude This".

The reason I asked was because the Studillac was one of the first hotrods. Someone figured out that there was a production Cadillac V8 engine that was a drop-in replacement for the stock Studebaker Hawk engine. And I mean drop-in - the motor mounts and the transmission coupling were perfect and if you have that, everything else is easy. So it was a q-ship - it looked innocuous but when the light turned green it "went like the hammers of hell". It had the nickname Studillac, and if the engine in that car was a V-8 you were looking at an original legend.
