The images from this camera remind me a lot of the images that I got out of my old Sony A200 DSLR. They both used the same 10.2MP Sony sensor. The only differences were the Pentax K10D being more "pro" oriented with more features, while the consumer grade Sony A200 went up to a useless ISO 3200. I'd like to get a K10D. Anyone on here trying to unload theirs for a reasonable price? Gonna look at eBay too.

Yes, they share the same sensor. My wife used to own a Sony A300 DSLR with the same 10 mpx sensor. It was a pretty nice camera with a somewhat functional live view. I remember the AF being pretty quick, but the viewfinder was tiny . Anyway, there are some great prices on used K10Ds - sometimes I think about getting another as a backup.

Well, there was that big green '60 Ford Starliner, probably my favorite car at the show. It doesn't have those round taillights, though. I still have quite a few shots to process, and I recall seeing an early 60s Ranchero there. Stay tuned, and I'll post here, and add to the album. I really loved the big '64 Galaxie 500s - I thought those were great-looking cars.

Here's a heavily customized 1950 Ford:


I actually had a white 4-door 1964 Galaxie 500! My dad got it for me for $200 bucks so I had a car to drive to my summer factory job when I was in college in the early '70s. When he sold it a few years later, I think he got a bit more than he paid for it. Starting about 1960, my dad had a couple of (new) Ford Falcon station wagons that had those big round taillights.

The indentation along the side looks exactly like a Falcon!

I'm sure these early Rancheros were based on the Falcon. Later on they were based on the Torino, like the '71 I owned. These were much bigger, unfortunately.

They were based on the Falcon Station Wagon to be exact. Everything underneath was the exact same pieces as were in the wagon. Nice photo, I had one but it was blue and nowhere near as nice looking!

But it had an 8-track stereo so it was perfect.

For the time, the Falcon was a small car, but you could lay a 4'x8' sheet of plywood in the back of the station wagon when the rear seat was folded down. My dad never bought a station wagon that couldn't do that! Got 20-21 mpg on a highway trip, too. Not amazing now, but, again for the time, very fuel efficient for an American car.

My Town of Brentwood, Essex ( England) granted the ancient right of the 'Freedom' to the 124 Squadron Royal Logistics Corps, which means they can march through the town with 'Band Playing, Colours Flying and Bayonets Fixed' -- I took some stills with my 2007 K10D and a Video on a Canon. It RAINED and we all got wet but it was worth it to support the British Army !! The Band of the Irish Guards led the March and the Mayo read the Scroll and inspected the parade.
