Well, hey -- it was held in the birthplace of Elvis. What else you gonna call it. :biggrin:

A few snapshots from this afternoon -- nothing special on the photography, just some great old cars.

That's about 1 meg in images so I better stop. Those old '60s and '70s muscle cars brought back a lot of memories.

Excellent sots
Great color and sharp

What lens did you shoot with for these
Thanks, Gale. These were all shot with the D200 and my workhorse lens, the 17-55DX. The whole car shots were at F8, the engine shot and one other at F4, and the balance at F5.6 at various focal lengths -- mostly on the wide end. Most are straight from the cam with resize only, no USM, except for the engine shot. It has USM of 250, .3, 4. Thanks for asking.

Nice shot. Your shootig style reminds me of my own when it comes to classics.

Link to my Auto Pics
I checked your gallery and we do have several shots that are very similar. You have some nice work there.

All the classics have a few distinctive features instantly recognizable. Gotta get in there and grab 'em, huh. :cool:

I agree Phil, there is something about classic cars. I love the detail and the iconic stylings. You can show a piece of a 57 Bel Air, and people will know what it is...

I actually meant to link you here. these are better, IMO.

Yep -- those ARE nice. Other than I was shooting under a glaring sun, I have several in my private collection from yesterday that could be seamlessly placed in your gallery. Many of the shots in that gallery fit my eye perfectly. Well done!

The images from the second link were on an overcast day just after the rain. Mmmm, raindrops on freshly waxed paint....lovely!

Nice shots, Phil. I went to the boat races at Pickwick and missed the Blue Suede Cruise. Looks like there were a alot of nice cars there.

Excellent set. I'll take the 56 Chevy.

Thanks, Louie. That is one super nice '56, huh! Check out the engine in that bad boy.

Hi Phil..
That is one nice Chevy, but isn't it a 55? And is that correct on the valve cover, 572 cu in..?? That is a big block. Used to have a 502 and that hauled a$$, but 572 cu ins...WOW...
Yeah, that ain't yer daddy's 283, 2-barrel for sure! They call it a "crate engine".

The '55 is similar to the '56 but the one in those pics is a '56 -- a VERY nice one, at that.

Here is a '55 for reference.

Ooohhh! I love the classics! We used to have a 56 chevy! It was a beauty until a stupid woman ran into the back of it and totalled it! :mad: That was the day I was going home with my dad and my 5th b-day present - my 1rst German Shepard puppy!

Gorgeous photos of gorgeous cars, BTW!
