Nikon F2AS with soviet Granit-11 zoom, Kodak Ektar, the slight turn in perspective is given by a scanning error from the lab:



This is my favourite cafeteria of the area, same camera and film, Micro-Nikkor 55mm f2.8:
That's a cool vehicle!

Yeah, indeed, in this part of England it appears that a lot of people are into hot-rodded WV vans as well as standard ones, of course the cafeteria on 4 wheels is one of my favourite "models" but in B&W and colour, I always shot it when it's around because I find it fascinating:







But also another company hot-rodded another VW for marriage use instead of the usual RR, unfortunately these pics have been ruined by the lab, they are also taken by the F2AS with Ektar:







Please notice that this is a Porsche Fuchs forged wheel, the representative of the company told me they upgrade axles, brakes and wheel to Porsche 911 2.7 standards:



If you want to get married on a VW they also offers a "standard" convertible Beetle:



I was extremely pissed off when I saw how the lab developed these pics, they ruined them and were very cool.

The colour images of the wedding VWs. You wrote that the lab had ruined them. I'm just curious, they look okay to me...

They look ok? For me NO! I changed lab and you can see the difference with the last roll of Ektar, IMO. Am I the only one who think these pics are horrible?

I never saw the original scene, so don't know what it should look like. Are you referring to the over contrasty and somewhat over saturated look? That is likely due to mediocre scanning. The developing is probably fine. I wouldn't say they are ruined, just improperly scanned.
Did the lab scan them?

Love that split screen bakery van...They're living the dream. Here's a couple from a crappy roll of Fuji color 200 shot through the ZX-L. Pentax FA 28~105 IF Once again grainy skies and poor results scan-wise. I used a CP filter on the art deco building and just free handed the 67 Camaro out of the window going around 60mph. The sun was really harsh on this one.

Not sure what you wanted to get out of that roll/lab that you didn't get, but I think the photo's look great if a little blue and contrasty. I certainly wouldn't call them ruined, unless the silver beetle was actually brown or something.

Very punchy colours that provia 400X - never heard of this film before. Looks like Ektar on steroids

Unfortunately Fuji stoped producing Provia 400x last year when they nuked a couple films. (You can still get a 100F version of Provia E6.) I have lots of Provia 400x left in my freezer in 135 & 120 formats, so I'm ok for a couple years.

Here are a couple more Provia 400x shots I took last weekend with my 67ii & 75/2.8 and a new 81B filter.

Gosh looks like I am the only one who didn't think about getting stocked :P

It definitely has something from puncher colour of Ektar - but boosted with ISO 400 sensitivity. Shame they killed those films. I loved their Fuji400H Pro film - also one that was ISO 160 I think - also is gone if I am not mistaken. But Fuji400H was just wow - and it scans so beautifully - unlike Ektar which is quite tricky with too much magenta and all of that...
