I like the Indian head . . . and selfies are difficult to avoid around chrome.
I know, tell me about it! Thanks, E.
Thanks, Barry. I love the yellow paint job.
These are all quite cool, but I love your photo of the hood ornament. What a setting you have given it, and it shines like a jewel in it.
Thanks, Linda. The owner tells me that there is a light inside the hood ornament that comes on with the headlights. I tried to give it that “always on” look here. It’s just gorgeous.
Oh, wow. Do you know if the light inside is something the owner added or whether it was in the car as the factory made it? You have definitely made it glow.
The owner said the car came from the factory with the lighted Indian head hood ornament. As pretty as it is, I imagine it must be distracting when you’re driving at night. The glow in the photo is part backlight and part magic.
Very cool shots! And I love the license plate. As for that last selfie….it’s like a free watercolor plug in!
Thanks, Howard. It does have that watercolor look to it. You can see that I forgot to change my shirt before going to the show. I usually wear a dark color shirt that doesn’t reflect as much light as the gray. Live and learn.
Wonderful and vibrant detail shots and your selfie is quite creative. 🙂
Thanks, Jane. I was hoping I could clone myself out of the shot but my Photoshop skills aren’t that good.
No need! 😄
Your vintage car details (and related projects) are always so refreshing.
Thanks, John. It’s the most fun of all the projects and among the most challenging.
I too was amazed by the hood ornament….and even more amazed when I read yours and Linda’s comments. Crazy! This is quite a beauty, and you’ve given it a good ride here. Sooo Low indeed, I bet it looks great in motion. What a color.
Thanks, Lynn. Actually, these cars have hydraulics that rais the car for actual road travel. The roads we have in Webster (Where life is worth living) would destroy this car in a week otherwise. The color is just exceptional and one very few cars have. A true original.
I didn’t know about the hydraulics – shows my ignorance – thank you for explaining. 🙂
That color is a knockout and I have to eagerly join the chorus of hurrahs for that gorgeous hood ornament. Wow! And I’m not even a car person, but I find myself wanting that car! The selfie is indeed a delightful bonus.
Thanks, AJ. I wish you could see this one in person just to appreciate the color. It’s not a shiny yellow but rather a pearl finish that almost glows. The photos do not do it justice.
