Default Celebrity Photo

I've been wanting to try Bob's advice to "get low" when shooting a car show. Problem is there weren't any car shows this weekend in my area. I should have gone to Fred's place.
Anyway, I did find this old Celebrity nearby so thought I'd give it a whirl.

E-M1 and Zuiko 12-40 at 12mm.

That is, indeed, a Celebrity, and in need of a makeover. Just don't refer it to Joan Rivers' or Bruce Jenner's plastic surgeons

At least no one can say the folks on the Oly m43 forum don't have a sense of humor.

LOL Many years ago I owned a silver Celebrity Eurosport. It was a good car that served us well, but I have to admit that it was in much better shape than the one in your photo!

I didn't want to look too far under the car. I was afraid I might find the skeleton of a missing shade tree mechanic.

Not sure if celebrity would be allowed into one of Bob's car drive ins. Nice rear quarter capture. Have never seen green rust before...

lol. Another fine example of the highly evolved state of the sense of humor of Steve's forum users. In actuality nothing in Oregon actually rusts. Before rust can start, exposed surfaces become covered by a protective layer of moss.
