I think you may be right. Going back and forth between the two generations the grilles and headlights are similar but the mirrors on this one seem to be from the more recent model. Being in southern Ontario I expect the underbody rust is pretty bad. Most of the hundreds of cars on this lot were only good for parts (if that); some of the older models at the back have sizable trees growing through them. This car was middle of the pack in terms of condition, and the nicer bodies were mainly from the late '80s and '90s:

The grill on the '77 and '78 is severely vertical while the later series is raked. I was talking to my dad last night about your photo and he shared that one can apparently get a '83 or so Riv convertible for under $2k USD in decent shape...razzz-ma-tazzz!

Really digging your Ektar stuff, Computer Controlled. I shoot a lot of Ektar. It can be a bit tricky if you don't expose it properly. Gets a heavy HEAVY magenta/purple cast.

Steinback, love the car photos.

Great stuff from all the regulars as well.

A couple random shots from me:

From the K1000:

With the Vivitar 100mm Macro on Fuji Pro 160s (sadly discontinued, I love this film), full frame:





With the Vivitar 75-205mm f/3.8 Zoom on Velvia RVP 100, full frame:



And this one, I can't remember if it was the Vivitar zoom or the Pentax M50/1.7. Based on the color and bokeh, I'm gonna go with the M50, but my brain seems to think I was walking aroudn with a huge lens when I shot this, so may very well be the Viv, the film is Fuji Pro 160s, I believe, and full frame:



From the Hasselblad 500 C/M, Planar 80mm f/2.8, full frame on some very expired Kodak VPS 220 (I have no idea how old, but it's pretty old). Most exposures from this roll didn't come out too well, but after an hour or so of tooling with this one in CS, I am happy with the result:

Most of the cars I'm posting pictures of are going to turn into scrap metal sooner or later. The guy who owns the lot has a crusher on the property as well.

Kodak Gold 400, Kodak Retina I type 148 with an uncoated Anastigmat Ektar 50/3.5 lens. This photo is an example why miniature camera photographers of the day (1939/40) liked cloudy days and/or the sun at their backs. And why SMC can be such an advance.

I like it though, Jussi - it has a dreamy quality.

PentaxKdenver, beautiful - my favorite are the first two. I like the retro kind of color on the last one as well. Beautiful model too...love her hair.

My first "real" camera was a Retina I with the uncoated Ektar. A fine, sharp lens until I put it away for several years with a fingerprint on the lens, which is now etched into the glass, alas.... Mea culpa! The Compur shutter still works properly. I wonder if the fingerprint can be polished out.

My addict testimony

Hello again dear film companions.
Posted here a while ago. Often lurking around in the company of a 35 mm camera.
Since 2010 I have stored on my folders more then 1200 frames of the 35 mm sort. I'm addicted to film. Permanently.
It went so far with it, now I'm looking down to the DSLR people. "I have my metal beauties, what do you know?".
Snob I know, but a pleased snob I am.

And it goes further: I am hunting for film wherever I go. I have this stupid idea I can do my part to delay the digital trend. Maybe they will consider keeping producing film. Paranoia?
Okay, you've got the picture. Probably you know what I'm talking about.

Cold, arctic cold:

I think the Riv is newer than that, sixth generation (1979-1985) with front-wheel drive. The 1977 and 1978 models were based on the LeSabre coupe of the same years and were rear-wheel drive. (My dad has owned two 1978 LXXV edition Rivieras as collector items. Pretty cars...)

I think you may be right. Going back and forth between the two generations the grilles and headlights are similar but the mirrors on this one seem to be from the more recent model. Being in southern Ontario I expect the underbody rust is pretty bad. Most of the hundreds of cars on this lot were only good for parts (if that); some of the older models at the back have sizable trees growing through them.

Yep, he is. I'm a big fan of the Riviera. Here's my 1995 Riviera, Anniversary Edition with the retro dash and gauges (Not my picture though).

I was involved in a crash a few years ago and the Riv was unfortunately declared totaled by the insurance company.

Because I posted a non-film picture, here's Frank from Cars:

I love this thread, so much inspiration. I'm pretty new to shooting with film so lots to learn.
