View Full Version : Boys and their toys (pic heavy)

10-01-2013, 07:45 AM
Last weekend an annual classic car rally came close to my home, so I headed out for a few shots. As there were approx 1000 vehicles made between 1950-1970, there was some lovely machinery on show. The photos I was taking showed off some of these lovely cars trucks and bikes, but they became a bit boring so I decided on a different take on the event by concentrating on the people in the cars as they went past. I hope you find these a little more interesting.

Lovely toys. But not just for the boys. Between the 2 of us, I've had 2 MGBs and a Jag (XKE), and Mike's had one 'B and 2 XJSes. (Yeah, bring on the jokes about Lucas/Prince of Darkness, warm English beer, and magic smoke. The 'Bs especially were actually really reliable).

Love the composition, the focus on the people was a very cool idea.

Great shots! Definitely an "outside of the box" shooting experience!

Cool set. I like the way you've chosen to not show the whole cars. I found myself seeing if I could ID them from the little I could see.

1&2. Morgan Plus Super?
3. No idea. Chrysler or Plymouth perhaps?
4. 57 Chev
5. Again, no idea ... Chrysler though I think?
6. Fastback Mustang ... maybe 68 model?
7. FC Holden?
8. No idea at all.

Great variety of cars and people. Love the theme.

There was plently of variety and I think the era (1050s-1970s) was a great one for classic cars - Thanks

The horses came with steering wheels and fuzzy dice?
