I service equipment for a company that occupies part of the old Pierce Arrow manufacturing plant in Buffalo, NY. They are beautiful cars. You need a gazillion ft-lbs of torque to get those beasts moving. I once saw a 500 cu-in (8.2 liter) boat motor that puts out all of 70 hp.

From a local annual auto show: hot rods, antiques and exotics (Ferrari, Viper, etc). K3 and 10-17mm Pentax, in case you couldn't tell that a fish-eye was used.

Great pic, and I am always impressed when the photographer manages to hide themselves from the reflections, even more so with a fish-eye, heh.

And this bird, we're not really sure what it is.

Yep, the rufous striped big sparrow is a Fox Sparrow. And you also have an American Tree Sparrow hanging out with the White-throats in the previous shot.

Sometimes the chrome is hopelessly shiny and it's impossible to avoid a selfie. Other times a selfie is intended. First image K3 with 17-70 Sigma, next two with 35 macro. Second image cross posted, as it should be shared with everyone.

Hey, Wpresto, I saw that second photo on a Twilight Zone when I was a kid...The normal looking guy when they took off the bandages was the odd ball, and the pig face people were the norm!

Kidding aside, I love classics and shiny paint and chrome... I had a 37 Ford drive me nut's once with all it's curvy fenders, I couldn't find a place to hide from being in the reflection. Heh.... could have used a short telephoto but then I'd lose the wide effect I was going for.
Keep your sense of humor, the world is a better place with a few laughs.

43mm limited. This is the west arm of Kootenay lake from a rather nice vantage point. I was hoping for a rainbow but got snow instead.

K3 with Sigma 18-250 in Prague. Made very sure these guys did not see me taking their picture. Would not want to annoy them (slightly different version x-posted).
