Car Crazy
Posted By: Sailor, 01-10-2008, 09:03 PM

Lot's of car photos on the forum lately - get's my blood up, to be honest (I'm 61 going on 16). Here are some shots I grabbed a couple of years ago at the Mopar Nationals, which we attended coincedentally with a visit to see my daughter at Ohio State (I've never owned a Chrysler product in my life - but they put on a good show). Some of these images I posted some time ago - perhaps on another forum - I can't remember 'cause I'm old as the hills. Anyway here are pictures of some beautiful cars and related stuff.

Finally the new guy - just a straight six I'm afraid - shot a couple of weeks ago:

This is a very nice series, Jerry.

I had not photographed cars and never did snap shots well either. Would love to attempt a few tries since there seemed to be a good angle picked by most photographers here.

Thanks, guys. Lot of great car shots on the forum lately.

Steve, the first shot is of a Charger - but I don't know the year. I was a Ford guy back in those days, so my knowledge of the Chrysler stuff is limited to the fact that if they could be bad news if you ran up against one on the street!
