Not so sure that "nice" describes this interesting junkyard jalopy!


This one looks "nicer"...

Works Bugatti Type 39, Prescott Hill Climb 80th anniversary. This car was present at the first hill climb at Prescott 80 years ago, as was Ettore Bugatti, who used his Rolleiflex there. So it seemed appropriate to use my 3.5F with Kodak Portra400

Thanks guys... I guess the S2 had to do for this in lack of the Leica SL! The M-B was part of some tour group, possibly a car club, indicated by the fender sticker. We are members of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, and they do sponsor group driving tours, so this may have been part of that. Driver & Navigator names are on stickers on the upper doors. Also, it was raining lightly off and on, yet the 300SL owners left the top down!?!

The car is participating in, or has participated in, the Colorado Grand. I looked into doing it myself about twenty years ago. Suffice it to say, if you cannot afford a 300 SL, you probably can’t afford to partake of this either. Always looked like fun though, if you are a car person.

I walked up and we chatted. I asked what year his car was, he said "58". I said can I take a shot with my 53 [Contax iia]? He posed for a shot. I had the Voigtalnder SC Skopar 21mm f4 on, so it worked out nicely.

Super photo, I love using super wide angle lenses on cars, you get such a different perspective, and you can also eliminate a lot of foreground distractions (car shows in particular!).

Thanks. The stretch on the car is a little exaggerated, but truthfully it is close to what I saw when the car drove into the parking lot. Had I used a 50mm, or slight telephoto, the car would have looked short form this angle, and the impression I got of the car with my eyes was that it was long and sleek (he modified the rear, which you cannot see, and this added to that impression).

Here is the first shot I took, as scanned and cropped:

I look at this, shot with a Rolleiflex on ACROS by streetlight, and I wonder, are your hands unnaturally steady, or are you walking around Chicago in the middle of a Winter night with a Rolleiflex on a tripod. Kudos either way.

That little maroon Alfa needs some TLC! I've always admired the Giulia GT and its lovely Bertone bodywork. Studied one in a new-car showroom in Seattle in the late 1960's and wanted it but it was out of my price range then...

The car still exudes style, and looks well maintained, so I suspect deliberate abuse to achieve a rat car look. Owner probably also has a fake worn to the brass black paint Leica M3.

Thank you, Larry! I tried several different compositions, but I think I like this one the best, too.

This is my co-worker's car, and he mentioned that at one point in the car's life, it was a parade vehicle. The three prongs on the front bumper are flag holders. It was also originally from LA's famous Felix Chevrolet dealership. There are a number of Felix the Cat stickers and decals on the car. If you zoom in, you can see one of those stickers on the bottom corner of the front windshield in Post #1383.

Rat Rod - Diesel powered

Dear Board,

I stumbled on this beauty today. Powered by a 350 plus HP engine from a Case backhoe and it was built in the guys shop which is actually his garage at his house.

The cab was once was a 45 International Harvester pick-up. The grill and front lights are from a 37 Ford pick-up. Everything else was fabricated in his home shop including the bed and the front and rear suspensions, and even the frame.

Pretty is in the eye of the beholder, and this girl is drop dead gorgeous to me!

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Harrisburg, PA

Scanning the details, a very interesting rig, Tim! I only question the placement of the fire extinguisher, a good thought but might be hard to reach if there were an engine fire! And I'll guess the exhaust is loud...
