I'm coming late to this thread, but that was exactly what I was thinking -- well, early 60's T-Bird. The point to the headlight nacelle was what told me it was an early-60s T-Bird, and then I just figured a 390 because a 352 (same block) would have been too pedestrian for a T-Bird, and anything bigger would have been a rare special-order item. Interesting that it has the strut braces. Are those factory, or were they added?

Well, I don't have any more automotive engines handy, but I have a few others.

Pratt and Whitney R4360 Wasp Major radial engine. 4 rows of 7 cylinders, 4360 cubic inches of displacement, horsepower varied from model to model. As low as 2650 hp and as high as 4300 hp. Taken at an airshow, circa 1985. Canon A-1, Vivitar S1 28-90, Kodachrome 64.



A much smaller Pratt and Whitney, the R-1340-AN-1 Wasp, which was Pratt and Whitney's first radial engine and the first of their famed Wasp series. 1340 cubic inches, 600 horsepower. This one is housed within a WWII vintage North American AT-6 Texan advanced military trainer. Taken with a Yashica Mat 124G, Kodak Tri-X.


A Lycoming R-680, 9 cylinders, 680 cubic inches, 285 horsepower. This engine is bolted into a Stearman Biplane, used as a primary trainer for American military fighter pilots from the 1930s through WWII.


And even more air-cooled delights! These are bolted into frames that are all balanced on two wheels.

A Norton 750cc Commando. This engine has had the popular single Mikuni carburetor conversion done to it. Minolta Hi-Matic E, Fuji Superia 400.


A Harley-Davidson big twin Ultra Classic. I'm not sure of the displacement or the horsepower of this model. Probably around 130 cubic inches and not much horsepower for that amount of displacement. Typical Harley. Bronica ETRSi, Zenza 75mm f/2.8, Kodak Portra 160.


BMW 900cc "Airhead" motor in a BMW R90S motorcycle. Horsepower about 57. Taken with a Minolta Hi-Matic E, Fuji Superia 400 film.

Shot this a few hours ago. Second roll through this $20 thrift store find. I'm starting to like it.

I believe they are original. I bought the car in 1983 and only had it for a year or so, money pit! (Parts were getting hard to find)

Apparently the original colour was canary yellow.

I was about to say...any Mustang of that vintage would have a 260 or 289 as the V-8 option.

Just spent the last couple hours catching up on the last 15-20 pages of the thread. It's been a while since I've been able to spend that kind of time here due to other projects, but I just got a bunch of film processed and was pretty excited to see the results. As always, I've enjoyed the photos from everyone.

MX, M 50/1.7, Walgreen's 200




No retouching here, I used PS to resize the scan and that's it. The reflection in her eyes is the sky and pine trees.

This Kodachrome from 1981 has held up a lot better than than the last few negatives I posted a page or two ago. Cross post.

Flexaret Va.
Kodak Ektar 100.

The lens on this camera is never going to win any prizes for sharpness, but I still quite like it.

Looks plenty sharp where it needs to be and very well captured and rendered.

It tends to be a bit soft towards the corners and edges when not stopped down. This shot it wasn't really an issue, as the subject is towards the centre.

Though really, I think I just need to stop zooming in quite so much on my scans when I'm sorting through them.

Given the subject matter, I was completely involved on the main subject. So for me the background - and most certainly the edges, don't exist. Upon closer examination of the larger version on your flickr page, the hand motion you captured even adds to it. In which case you could have probably cropped quite a bit more of the background to more closely focus on his expression and motion. Very well seen and executed by not using a faster shutter speed.
