Oooh man, all these car posts are killing me. I wish it would stop raining here long enough for some of the cars around here to get out.

All of these were shot with the K200D and Sigma 17-70mm.

Up close and personal - that's the way I like to see shiny classic cars! Great job and thanks for sharing.

You questioned the Mercury for some reason. I think the connection is that James Dean drove a '49 Mercury in the movie 'A Rebel Without a Cause'. If it was that Mercury it would be significant for historical reasons.

That's some real good info. For some reason I didn't take note of the year the car was made, even though it was littered with signs. I won't be around the next couple of Fridays, but I'll be sure to ask about it car if I see it again.

Too funny. I say the same thing about the year I was born. I guess I'll have to find something from 1962 the next time around...
