Wednesday evenings cruise night at the local eatery. A nice turnout of vehicles showed up this week which I will post more of later. I thought this particular shot looked pretty nostalgic though.

Just a little view at home in the evening.

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!

One of the regulars at Wednesday’s cruise night with probably the most easily identifiable vehicle to associate with when one mentions “cars from the 50’s”!
Of course, It could be my vehicle which may be the most easily identifiable in the eyes of today’s kids after the ‘Cars’ movie had come out. 😉

Front view of my Hudson at home in the driveway with the accessory grill emblem light on after coming home from this evening’s cruise night at the local neighborhood In & Out burger. Many old classics had unique and neat little emblems or hood ornament features which helped to distinguish your vehicles brand and/or stand out amongst the crowd and some were lighted to be seen in day or night!

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

As I promised fellow photo blogger joeinfocus that I had coincidentally photographed the same hood ornament he posted a photo of, while I was at a car show yesterday here on the westcoast.
This Cadillac hood ornament I had captured was on a that of a ’48 or ’49.
