Default Prowler photographed in the act

...of being a hit at the Friday night show. We don't see many of the Plymouth Prowlers anymore and this one shows as new, it is a beauty.

All my car photos http://tinyurl.com/m5fqcxx are done with the E-P3, VF-2, FT 9-18 Zuiko and manual exposure. Finish PPing is done
in Corel After Shot Pro from RAW files.

The show is 6 - 10 pm and parking is east/west so light is often harsh to say the least but can be dealt with which the VF-2 contributes
greatly for low-angle composition. Fun hardware combination but hard on this old man's knees by the time an evening is finished.

Very nice, no engine shots but believe that ride has a V10 but not sure.

A four cylinder would certainly seem.....inappropriate

I believe they use the same engine that's used in the Viper.

I think all the Prowlers except for a couple promo cars were V-6's.

....the factory std engines in the Prowlers were indeed V-6 at 200 - 250 HP.

Really nice captures there Bob. Well done.

(And yes, all prowlers used only V-6 engines.)
