Default ...at last Friday evening with the cars

I've been 'family busy' most Friday nights this spring but last night was back to the fun of the cars.

BTW, I use only the E-P3/VF-2/FT 9-18 to do the cars. I tried the M1 but it just doesn't handle right with the VF-2 for how I photograph the Friday night show so back to the P3 and the 'feel good' comfort zone.

Some nice cars come to the show, it has a good reputation for quality cars, a big showing and a lots of people..... and it is all FREE too, every Friday night, we have a good time.

I've photographed so many of the cars the past 3 years that I look for ones I've not seen before, usually there are some.

These from last night..............

Why mess with success? Hope you don't mind if next time I get to a car show I try to emulate your style. As Charles Caleb Colton said "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".

'no messing around' .. Exactly the right decision most always and I would love the flattery..... go for it and GET LOW!

Really nice Bob. Great lines and colors. This is your best set to date. That first vehicle is talking to me, big time. My dad had one of those (not the same engine ) when I was a teenager. Never would let me sniff the drivers seat, with good reason.

I used a $200 off special and credit card points to pick up a great little body with an E-M1-like sensor to primarily use the 7-14 f4 Panasonic for subjects at angles like this with the built-in articulating EVF, a Panasonic GX7. The Olympus bodies just don't do the lens justice with purple blobs in tough light, stuff I am finding you never see when used with the GX7.

....thanks Greg, I'm happy you like the images.

The fellow bringing the '66 Nova is who sold the '38 Chev 4-dr that I would have bought myself if only I had garage space. I just was not willing to spend 175-200 $/month for a place to keep it, now the '38 car is gone to N.Carolina, I am still a bit sad and probably should have made rent for it.

I've read that the GX7 is a really nice camera, it surely looks good and the built in articulating EVF is a real plus to it also. Hopefully you will get better usage of the 7-14.

Fred, the car running street gearing for the blower dynos at about 550 HP (.....he said) and when he rolls it in it makes a lot of racket.... he says with the blower drive gearing changed to performance the engine dynos close to 700 HP.

There are quite a few BIG HP engines show up there, some Chevy 502s that are stout just to look at.

I've split out the Friday Night engines to a gallery of 'Engines Only' if you would like to see some of what shows up; here ==>http://tinyurl.com/bmym45e......it was a long winter in Texas too
