I hewed down my ~200 photos from that day to my favorites below.
1938 Chevrolet Coupe, Rick and Denise Petrosky, Wallingford, CT. Artsy-fartsy shots and shiny chrome! What more could you ask for?
1939 Pontiac Silver Streak, Frank and Dottie Lounsbury, Weeki Wachee, FL. An unfortunate combination of objectification, racism and aesthetic appeal. What a waste of talent.
1933 Ford "Woodie," John Clark, Salisbury Mills, NY. I like the taillights on stalks.
1936 Pontiac, Arthur Schneidel, Burlington, CT. Nifty M-shaped hood!
Three little rounded windows on the side remind me of portholes.
1933 Ford pickup rat rod, Billy Zyla, Manchester, NH. This is a very badass car, as you can tell from the license plate.
The sign on the door assures you that, yes, this is indeed a badass car.
This car is so badass that it has skulls.
1933 Ford, ? Bordvias, Montreal, QC.
More of a front-end decoration than a bumper.
I really wish cars had hood ornaments like these nowadays. Then I could tell where my left tire was!
1937 Ford Sedan, Wayne and Ann Marie Cashmman, Plattsburgh, NY. The bright, brilliantly coordinated palette, detailed finishes and fish all prove that the owners of this car [and the customizers] have playful senses of humor. Probably my overall favorite vehicle…after the scooters, of course.
Hey, I found Nemo!
