Hi all,

I posted some shots of old cars and tractors the other day but could not post this one because it was entered in the first Leica sponsered Challenge over at dpreview. It's only third place but those folks in the Leica forum take their photography a lot more seriously that I have in the past. I was glad to get third place in this first challenge.

No it's not an M8. It's a V-LUX 1 and beat outseveralM8's entries. I don't think they really tried to match IQ as long as they were close. There was 45 photos in the challenge and the theme was Patina or things that were rustedor worn.

Kudos Don, you did very well. I like the old car and I know several people that would love to restore it.

Thanks Annie, Ted, Jerry and Donna. I used my Raynox 6600 Pro wide angle lens on that shot. I wanted to get something a little different and it worked.

Ted & Jerry, If you go to my link to zoto, you can see several other oldies and get an idea of what the guy has in his yard. I'm going back up to Lubbock and see if I can spend the day just taking pictures of what he has. I couldn't believe it when I first drove by the junk yard, there's so many.
