my wife and i have started doing car shows, what better place to apply our phototechniques then on automobiles. we figure this and real estate photography will be our new career when we retire .

Great pics and car shows are interesting.
But I prefer surviver cars that look like they did originaly and not modified or hot rodded.
Either way, it is still good.
I just prefer the original classics.
I have a 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe that has been repainted and the seats have been recovered sometime during its life. Other than that it is original.
It gets a lot of attention.
But I like to look at the hot rods too.

Great pics! The best car I ever had was a '54 Oldsmobile and that was in 1969. Built like a Sherman tank with REAL bumpers and such a far cry from the little sardine cans built today!

---"Bet some of you folks remember these cars when they were new

I doubt it.
They didn't look anything like that --" when they were new "

Great pics, but I'm with Robhu on liking old cars that still look like the day they were in the dealer show room.
(preferably from the 50's and 60's)

NewToCA, -----------yup, that 52 Buick hardtop in your link looked great in the dealer's showroom and still looks great today.

I actually enjoy looking at cars from the 50's and 60's that aren't the most popular ( like 57 chevys are )

Olds, Buicks, Pontiacs, Plymouths, etc are not seen as often and it's a treat to see those in great shape.

I'm hoping mathjack107 gets to take photos of those also and shares ( his photography work is great )

i used a nikon d300 and nikon 17-55 mm and sigma 10-20mm, my wife a d80 with nikon 18-200mm.. very little is about the cameras, its all our lighting, post processing and skill at capturing a good exposure that allows us to work with the image in our software
