Add a little more drama to the black and white with a little rolling Fog as in John Carpenter's The Fog.

That'd be pretty spooky, Les. I can feel the hair on the back of my neck rising right now.

The shot actually reminds me of scenes in the '60s B&W movie, "To Kill a Mockingbird", which was released when I was 15 or 16. The movie chilled me to the bone; unlike the vampires and space monsters that were scary and fun at the same time, this move showed the horror of real, down-to-earth hatred and bigotry. I literally couldn't sleep the first night after seeing the film; I always think of that night as my first move from a child to an adult.

On another note, I just got notice that Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car will no longer be published, and remaining issues will be replaced with another Hemmings publication. I'm really disappointed, since I truly enjoy that magazine.

Oh Lord - the sound of banjos - even in broad daylight - would have me running away with breakneck speed!

Thanks, brother Bob - just my luck that thorny plants are growing around the place.

Now that would be the finishing touch, EM.

I remember "To Kill a Mockingbird " very well. As you have said, movies, books that are about real life horrors are truly frightening as opposed to those about fantasy.

Another couple of movies from that era that had a significant effect on me as a boy and still make me think about the flaws of human nature, are "12 Angry Men" with Henry Fonda and "Inherit the Wind" with Spencer Tracy and Frederick March.

I was also a subscriber to Sports and Exotic Car and used to look froward to each issue in the mailbox. I was very surprised and quite disappointed when this magazine ceased publishing.

I was also a subscriber to Popular Photography, a magazine that I'd been a reader of...on and off...mostly on... since 1968. It also ceased publishing this March.

In one month.... two magazines that I really enjoyed.

I fear that these magazines closing down, are a harbinger for others that may follow suit.

Actually, you brought my attention to Sports and Exotic Car in one of our earlier exchanges a couple of years ago - when I got a flyer in the mail offering the magazine, I thought: "If Les likes it, I'll like it", which proved to be the case.

I just learned that Bimmer magazine, devoted of course to BMWs, has bit the dust . . . . . . and I was just about to subscribe.

I'm pleased that you liked Sports & Exotic Car. I miss it already. I always looked forward to seeing the latest issue and thought they did an excellent job in covering a wide variety of British, European and Japanese vintage automobiles. I was hoping one day that they would do a detailed article on the Volvo PV544s....one of which I owned and drove for awhile during my university days. I didn't subscribe from the beginning of the magazine, so I don't know if they ever featured the PV544.

I used to check out Bimmer magazine every so often. Unfortunate that it too, has closed.

One vintage car magazine that I pick up at the newsstand, is Collectible Automobile. The latest edition (April 2017) has an article on a Porsche designed Studebaker sedan. It never saw production. Believe the plans were for it to have a Porsche air cooled V6. This was back in the 1950's.
