This is such an old truck that B&W seems entirely appropriate.

Lol! I never thought about that but it's true I started taking B&W pictures with a Kodak Brownie when I was 12 years old ... Back in my days ... When I got my first Minolta SLR in 1967, my mother was very surprised to see brilliant colors through the viewfinder, a sign that older people weren't used to color photography ... she even thought the viewfinder image has to be B&W too ... lol!

This is a very nice shot of a '57, accentuating the old fella's once grand persona. It is begging to be restored. I hope it finds a great home.

Pure nostalgia! Back in the day one of the Chevy ads in South Africa was "rugby, barbeque, sunny skies and Chevrolet!"
