Blog update 8-17-2013

It’s been a busy week for me shooting. I haven’t had much time to update my blog. You may know I like to find cars that have been nurtured and cherished by their owners for a long time and here are 7 from the last week.

  1. This 1963 Ford was bought new by Sharon’s parents and given to her as a Sweet Sixteen car.
  2. Ralph bought this Royal Mist Blue 1966 Olds 4-4-2 right after high school and took his wife to the prom in it. Early on he used it as a drag race car and then as a daily driver. It won awards at the World of Wheels in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
  3. Larry bought his blue 1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic convertible new in 1975; it’s never been wrecked. There are 60k miles but now he only drives it 500 miles a year.
  4. I’ve known Paul’s twin Karl (1969 Mustang) for a while and just learned Paul has owned the MG for 35 years. The very good-natured Carl & Paul were singing “One Is The Loneliest Number” along with the band and they can thank me for not having recorded that performance.
  5. Ron has had the red ’59 Caddy for 25 years. I met him when he had driven his ’59 Bonneville convertible and didn’t realize this Cadillac was his until I recognized him as the driver from a shot at Westchester. He restored it twice
  6. Ed bought this 1947 Chrysler New Yorker 22 years ago.
  7. I met Jim’s (1930 Ford) brother Gary this year and saw his 1955 Ford Customline that he found in a garage near Comiskey Park 17 years ago.
