So, when my brother and his band play a show around town, I usually get to borrow the keys to his 57′ Chevy until my own ride is roadworthy enough for the drive back and forth to his place. Of course, when I’m driving, I usually don’t get the chance to take and photos so, on this day I tagged along when he took a trip to the store and got this shot while cruising down harbor blvd. Did a little selective coloring in the post process and ended up with a shot that would probably make a nice album or some sort of cover photo!

An early style muscle car type, 1964 Mercury Comet.
I think most people would associate muscle cars with the 70’s but I think the squaring of vehicles and big engines were in probably around 10 years earlier with cars like the Pontiac Bonneville, GTO, Chevy Impala, or Ford Galaxy.

Rolls

While at a car show in Oxnard CA. this past weekend, I couldn’t help but be drawn to this timeless classic Rolls Royce within the mix of all the other fantastic customs and hot rods displayed. Shot at 1/160sec f8 iso100 32mm focal length

Captured this shot at a Hollywood Hot Rods show in Burbank Ca. in 2008. Did a little retouch and tried a little bit of an artsy image effect on the original.
