Default Some Red Ones I forgot...

I hope you aren't getting tired of my car photos, I have more to post.
Here are some more red ones that I thought I had posted earlier. Well red, burgundy and orange.
I'll try to identify them best I can. I'm not sure on all of them.

1921 Wills Saint Claire Roadster.



I'm thinking this is a 1930 Packard?






1933 Chrysler, what a beautiful car!








Ford Model T not sure what year.

Not being a motorcycle guy like you, I have always had a soft spot for cars. (A good friend of mine had an older Goldwing but now has a big Yamaha, My youngest son has one of the last Buell Lightning XB9SX bikes sold in Newfoundland)

However the best I could do myself (on a very limited budget) was a 1999 Mustang V6 5speed. Not exactly a screamer but it is rear wheel drive with three pedals on the floor, rare these days unless you have lots of money to spend.

Great pictures, I appreciate all of the car images, nothing but heavy duty pickups up here.

I'm not sure if this is an MG or an Austin.



1961 Sunbeam




I have to sneak in a shot of the 58 Corvette



In the shot of the 33 Chrysler, you can see another red car in the background. Its a 29 Packard but I couldn't get a decent shot of it.
Here is a rather poor frontal shot.




Hope you enjoyed these.

You're too quick for me Ira, I was still adding to the post.
Anyway, I have a few motorcycles shots and a few pick ups I'll be posting soon, and some boats too. so stay tuned.

The sports car is an Austin Healey 3000, the biggest most luxurious version.

The Sunbeam Tiger, if it is stock, used a 260 cubic inch Ford V8 (although many were upgraded by their owners to a high performance 289 much later).

Hey Ira,
Sounds like you know your sports cars!
Yeah, after I looked at the Austin Healey again, I realized it wasn't an MG.
Quite right on the Sunbeam too. I've even seen guys put big block motors in them.
Although, I think that would ruin the handling ability it probably does OK on a strip.

Interesting shots John ... thanks for posting !

BTW - I like the low angle shot of the '33 Chrysler best.

Absolutely not. For 2 reasons

1) I love old cars; and
2) They are great photos

Thank you, guys. glad you're enjoying them.
Kev, I agree. the low angle worked well. I'm still learning, mostly by trial and error.
John, Yes. there were quite a few I haven't seen before either!
You are correct on the paint, some of the restorers aren't exactly purest now days.
Ke1th, I sure appreciate the complement, Thanks.
