Love those classic car shots. Great saturation and sharpness. I especially like the 'rod with the Allison V12. Don't see that mod much these days. Back in the 50s and 60s, when surplus Allisons could be had for cheap, it was a not uncommon mod to see. Easy bolt-on horsepower for back in the day.

My dad was in the US Army during the Korean conflict, and was over there pretty much for the duration. He had a Kodak Pony with him -- a cheap, range-focus 35mm -- and he shot B&W and slides with it. Considering how long he was over there, he didn't take a lot of pics, but what he did take, I've duplicated and digitized using my duplicating rig and a DSLR. The slides are Kodachromes and look as fresh today as they were back in the early 1950s. The B&W images -- well the early ones were sloppily processed and not stored well. They've got splotches and tons of scratches. The later ones were processed and stored better.

My dad was assigned to the 23rd Quartermasters Group. He was a supply sergeant, iow, an remf. But they did see action on occasion. On one instance, their position was overrun one night and a grenade was tossed into the bunker my dad was in. He survived pretty much unscathed, but his CO was killed.
We're thankful for his service and his photography!

Thanks - I think it's fixed now. I'd uploaded an edit to the first one, I believe flickr updates the URL for the photos when you do that.
