Default Car show part 2

I decided to sort and post photos from the show by color, to help me from getting confused, it doesn't take much to get me confused.
Here's another sports car that I really like.
The Stanguellini













Then of course there's the Ferrari...





Talk about tiny, this beamer is about as compact as they get!

Then there's always the larger muscle cars like this Dodge Charger.
I'm not sure what year it is, and I forgot to get a shot of the placard.








BTW the lable on the hood that says SHAKER is printed to look like its shaking even with the motor off.


The Shelby GT500
This is a combination of two shots, I had to over expose one shot to get the detail in the engine compartment. Its not HDR, its a cut and past.



This is the last of the fast red ones, I'll have some red antique tomorrow...

Hope you enjoyed these.

I'm loving the auto show pictures. I've been wanting to find a show around my town to give it a try myself.

I believe the charger is actually a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.

I've got a question about the last picture. I'm cunfussed by the dof. It seems to vary.

The ground in the shadow of the front tire is in focus, while the ground just behind the shadow is out of focus, but parts of the car like the hood, remain in focus. The steps on the back right are in focus while the person sitting on the wall is out of focus.

Was this a multiple exposure shot that was stitched together?

Don't take this as a criticism, I'm just trying to understand. I'm way too new to criticise anyone.

Looking forward to more pictures.

Bill

Great pictures of tremendous subjects.

That Stanguellini (hope I have the spelling right) is an absolutely gorgeous car. I can well imagine the Italian craftsman forming the aluminum by hand.
Wow !!

That little BMW 600...seemed to be the Smart car of it's time. BMW have come a long way.

red and fast is a good place to start
i like car shows too and we should be getting a few around this time of year
the problem is always finding out what is on and where
that was a neat trick with the shelby
and just what did you do to "36" it almost looks like a toy

not to sure if i would want to drive the bmw, i get the feeling trucks wouldnt see you

i have a photo of a 3 wheel (i think) messerschmitt kr200 thats even smaller if you want to have a look

looking forward to the next lot

Hi GW,

Not an exotic memory, but the BMW 600 brought back a memory of the BMW Isetta 300 which is a distinct memory from when I was a kid. In fact, I just saw one on the street about a week ago, and I was surprised that I recognized it immediately, since I've probably not seen one in 40 years.

Pretty cool!

There was a TV sit com in the '90's I think...star was a kid who was named Urkel....believe his first car on the show was a BMW Isetta 300...the 300cc single cylinder (BMW motorcycle engine)....
